And we thought Justin Bieber spitting on fans was scandalous!
Simon Cowell is having a kid at the ripe old age of 53! And guess who the mom is!? It’s his friend’s wife!
Yup! Simon is expecting a child with Lauren Silverman, who is still technically married to a NYC real estate mogul Andrew Silverman, who also happens to be one of Cowell’s buddies. So yeah, the plot most definitely thickens.
It’s unsure if this is a straight up affair, because apparently Lauren and Andrew were married but separated, but it’s unsure if they were separated BECAUSE of Simon or if he just swooped in at the last moment.
“Lauren and Andrew have been unhappy in their marriage for some time, and their divorce has been in the works for a while,” a source tells Us Weekly, “As their marriage deteriorated, she and Simon became close.”
Well, Simon and Lauren were spotted on a yacht alone back in January 2012, so yeah, the couple’s divorce was in the works for longer than “a while.”
What kind of father will Simon be? Well, let’s see what he has to say about child rearing!?
"God, no. I couldn’t have children. If I had them here drawing on the walls I’d go nuts,” he once said in 2009.
Father of the year mug FOR SURE.
