Simon Cowell can finally breathe a sigh of relief and hopefully move on with his life. His pregnant mistress, 36-year-old Lauren Silverman, has finally reached a settlement in her divorce from Andrew Silverman, who happens to be one of Cowell’s close friends, or at least he was before Cowell knocked up his wife. The details of the divorce settlement are scarce, but Lauren will reportedly be walking away with just over $2.0 million and is expected to stay in the New York area so that she can be near her and Andrew’s seven-year-old son—the former couple will share joint custody.
Sources are saying that Cowell and Lauren are still very much involved with one another, despite living in different cities. And although Cowell agreed to stay away from his mistress until the divorce was finalized, he’s reportedly been checking in on her every day. Now that her marriage is officially over and done with, we’ll have to wait and see if Cowell actually admits to being in a real relationship with his young baby mama.
Since this scandal first surfaced, there have been varying reports about whether or not Cowell and Lauren were having an affair, and for how long it had been going on. New information has now revealed that the two have been involved for at least six months.
As you may recall, Cowell briefly dated his younger Britain’s Got Talent co-judge, supermodel Carmen Electra, back in December 2012. Although this celebrity couple only lasted a couple of months, a source is now claiming that the reason they broke up was because Electra caught Cowell in a compromising situation with Lauren. “Carmen was at Simon’s house in L.A. when she literally busted him with Lauren,” the insider told E! News. “Simon called her a friend, but there was nothing platonic about what was going on, if you know what I mean.”
