Simon Cowell Quite Possibly Knocked Up a Friend’s Wife
Cantankerous reality show mogul Simon Cowell now has even more to yell about, because it’s being reported that a friend’s wife is pregnant with his child. Yikes.
Demi Lovato is going to have a field day with this.
In a story custom-made for the tabloids, Us Weekly says socialite Lauren Silverman is about “10 weeks along” with Cowell’s baby.
Lauren is married to — but estranged from — New York real estate tycoon Andrew Silverman, who happens to be a close friend of Cowell’s (and is probably more upset that Simon broke the bro code than he is about his wife being knocked up by another guy).
“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 explained. “As their marriage deteriorated, she and Simon became close.”
And if life were a romantic comedy, that would somehow make this situation better.
“I do really, really like kids, because I can talk to them and listen to them,” the childless Cowell said last year. “The problem has always been how much time you need to devote to [them]. I’ve always dedicated all my life to work, and at 52, I’ve probably missed the opportunity.”
Only as it turns out … maybe not so much. (Maybe no one ever told him it’s women who have trouble with conception as they get older.)
