What should be a joyous occasion is turning out to be not that way at all.
We previously reported that Simon Cowell is having a love child with his best friend’s wife Lauren Silverman, but it seems that Simon had the wrong impression about their arrangement.
Apparently the X Factor judge thought they were just friends with benefits and that she was making sure there would be no baby Cowells. A source said:
“The pregnancy has taken him by surprise. He assumed she was using birth control. Simon thought this was a casual relationship — friends with benefits… The pregnancy was not planned. He is feeling tricked… No question that Simon will want to be part of the baby’s life, but I’m not so sure he wants to be part of Lauren’s… She told him around [July 10th]. He didn’t have a clue before then and it has come as a complete surprise. . . . Simon has repeatedly said he doesn’t want kids… He feels let down by Lauren… They were friends first and foremost. This could be a ‘spite my husband’ sort of thing. Simon is convinced it was her friends who leaked the story.”
Well, this doesn’t sound good for anyone involved!
And we’re really disappointed in Simon, because if he’s going to sleep with his friend’s wife, at least be safe about it!
Or just do the right thing and leave her alone until they're officially divorced.
There has also already been news about Lauren’s husband Andrew Silverman filing for divorce on July 15th because he didn’t even know his wife was having an affair.
They apparently weren’t as estranged as people have been led to believe either.
Which we’re guessing Simon knew since he was such good friends with them.
He’s reportedly contacted PR man to the stars, Max Clifford, to “plan a strategy to deal with it.”
Divorces and affairs are bad enough as it is, but to involve a baby in it is just the worst.
We know this has to be an incredibly stressful time for Lauren, so hopefully she takes some yoga classes to calm her nerves and grow a healthy child.
