How Simon Cowell Is Really Paying for Getting His Friend’s Young Wife Pregnant

Simon Cowell Sugar Daddy Paying Friend’s Young WifeSimon Cow­ell is spend­ing a lot of money to make sure his preg­nant mis­tress, Lau­ren Sil­ver­man, is com­fort­able as she goes through her messy divorce. It’s the least he can do, con­sid­er­ing he has a big part to play in the dis­so­lu­tion of her mar­riage to Andrew Sil­ver­man, who was once one of Cowell’s close friends. Cow­ell is plan­ning to drop a whop­ping $20,000.00 a month to rent a lux­u­ri­ous three-bedroom apart­ment in New York City, where Lauren—who is about three months preg­nant with Cowell’s baby—and her seven-year-old son can stay dur­ing the divorce proceedings.

Accord­ing to insid­ers, Lau­ren and Cow­ell are offi­cially dat­ing now, and he’s doing every­thing he can to make sure the divorce is final­ized as peace­fully as pos­si­ble. That’s why he even went so far as to meet with Andrew face-to-face for the first time since the news of their affair broke to try and clear the air.

One of the biggest points of con­tention in the Sil­ver­mans’ divorce pro­ceed­ings will be the cus­tody of their child. At this point, shared cus­tody seems like the most likely out­come, but the ex-couple would have to stay rel­a­tively close in prox­im­ity. Here’s the prob­lem: Andrew is based in New York and Cow­ell is in Cal­i­for­nia. That means if Lau­ren wants to start a new life in Cal­i­for­nia with Cow­ell and their baby, she won’t be able to take their son with her as that would vio­late their cus­tody agree­ment. That means she essen­tially would have to decide between main­tain­ing a close rela­tion­ship with her son and Andrew, or leav­ing him behind and start­ing a new life with Cow­ell. One source has claimed that Lau­ren is actu­ally con­sid­er­ing the move to Cal­i­for­nia because it would be eas­ier to hide from pub­lic scrutiny.

What do you think: Should Lau­ren Sil­ver­man sac­ri­fice her rela­tion­ship with Simon Cow­ell for the sake of her child? Would it be smart or self­ish if she moved to Cal­i­for­nia with Cowell?

    Wow, that sucks that his girl­friend already has a kid with her soon to be ex hus­band and one on the way while she is still mar­ried! Sucks to be her, since i’m sure the divorce will be very rough on her 7 year old.
