Earlier this week, we learned that Simon Cowell had an affair with his close friend’s wife, and the pair are now expecting a baby. Now, Lauren Silverman and the The X Factor boss are finally speaking out!
Simon Cowell fans were shocked earlier this week as they that the music mogul and X Factor guru is going to be a daddy, after sleeping with his friend’s wife, Lauren Silverman. After dodging questions about the pregnancy and affair, Cowell has finally broken his silence – sort of. Simon Cowell did not answer when questioned about the pregnancy yesterday at the Television Critics Association meeting, but instead insisted that he needed to keep it private at the moment. Cowell later explained to People Magazine, that he has a reason for keeping mum: “There are a lot of things I will eventually clear up when the time is right, but I really have to be sensitive because there’s a lot of people’s feelings involved here.”
One of those people is likely Lauren and Andrew Silverman’s 7-year-old son, whom Andrew Silverman says is his top priority right now. Lauren Silverman also broke her silence recently, releasing the following statement to the media: “I am committed to sorting things out with Andrew as amicably as possible to ensure the well-being of our son. I would hope for some space and privacy in order to work through this.” Meanwhile, rumor has it that her soon to be ex-husband Andrew has cited adultery as the reason for divorce. Yikes, something tells us things are about to get messy.
