Simon Cowell Won’t Marry “Gold Digging” Baby Mama (Report)

Simon Cowell’s baby mama, Lauren Silverman is getting trashed in the tabloids. Both the UK’s Daily Mail and The New York post brand the reportedly 10 weeks pregnant Silverman a “gold digger.”

From The Dail Mail:

The married socialite expecting Simon Cowell’s baby was accused of being a ‘gold digger’ on Thursday.

Lauren Silverman has allegedly issued the X Factor boss with a string of outrageous demands, telling him she wants marriage and her own reality TV show before she will allow him access to the child.

And in divorce papers filed two weeks ago by her estranged spouse Andrew Silverman, Lauren was accused of being ‘cruel and inhuman’ towards her husband.

Lauren has released a statement to the press regarding her 7 year old son, “I am committed to sorting things out with Andrew as amicably as possible to ensure the well-being of our son. I would hope for some space and privacy in order to work through this.”

Well, good luck with that privacy thing. The Daily Mail posted a slew of photos of Lauren and her baby bump. At least they blurred out her son’s face in the photos.

Sources around Simon say that a wedding is not in his future. Has it ever been?

‘Simon does NOT, NOT, NOT plan to get married to her [Lauren]. Simon is gearing up for a potentially ugly child support battle.

‘He tried desperately to reach an agreement with Lauren before it went public but she surprised Simon and leaked the news.

‘Simon was hoping to reach a financial agreement with her and then release a joint statement but Lauren is savvy and wants to be famous and when he refused her opening demands for marriage she leaked it.’

Why is Simon being painted as the good guy here? He had sex with his best friend’s wife. I hate the sexism at work here, as if she’s the only responsible one. Even if she’s ambitious and looking for a sugar daddy, if Simon can’t keep it in his pants, I don’t feel sorry for him. He’s not a victim here.

A New York Post  “source” claims that Lauren is the reason why Simon broke up with Idol makeup artist, Mezhgan Hussainy

“She slept with Simon when he was engaged, which is why he and Mezhgan broke off their engagement,” another said.

Another said, “She says she is in love with Simon and would do anything to keep him. She is obsessed with him.”

Oh, and there is this:

“Simon likes having a harem of women on his boat who compete for his attention.” a source said.

Another source said, “Friends assume [Andrew] knew they were sleeping together but turned a blind eye because he was star-struck by Simon and loved going on a free vacation on his massive yacht.

Well, then. It hasn’t even been a week since the news broke. This popcorn-worthy news story should get even better.

  • No Thanks

    Yeah…I still don’t care. I’m sure Simon will financially support the child. Maybe trot it out for the occasional photo op when it’s beneficial for him but I don’t expect much beyond that.

  • Larc

    Simon won’t get more grief from this than he deserves. In fact, probably not nearly as much.

  • Billy Bob

    Of course Simon, a dude can’t keep it in his pants. Just ask Anthony Weiner. The gold digger seduced the fool Simon and now he paying for it.

  • lkingcorn

    Must be all his money that’s attractive. He is very short and average looking, but than owning the boat does put one in a different light. Simon definitely gives friendship new meaning–with a friend like him who needs an enemy?

  • Eilonwy_has_an_emu

    So Cowell’s now the innocent man-child who was relentlessly pursued, trapped, and forced to surrender his vital fluids to the killer vajayjay?

    Well, it’s a narrative. It’s in the financial best interests of both Andrew Silverman and Cowell to blacken Lauren Silverman’s character as thoroughly as possible… at least, if we assume Cowell is more concerned about holding onto his pickier advertisers than about Tru Luv or amicable relations with the mother of his child. If she’s that awful, presumably she’ll get around to demonstrating it in a form other than third-hand gossip.

  • No Thanks

    I think “friend” is an exaggeration. More likely a friendly acquaintance that he occasionally hung out with. It still doesn’t excuse the affair. But this whole “they were BFF’S!!! story doesn’t fly with me.”

  • teacup

    It’s always the woman’s fault. The man involved never faces the same social consequences.

  • Axxxel

    Yeah, I only care a bit for the unborn child…

  • Axxxel

    Yes and no… Maybe people would be more forgiving if she wasn’t married.

  • Axxxel

    Thank goodness, no marriage… I cannot imagine the worse case scenario… Lady pregnant – marriage – lady loses child – divorce.

  • Incipit

    Yeah, teacup. That same lame ass whiny excuse has been around since Forever Plus One. “The woman tempted me”.

    Madon’. Only innocent party here is the child-to-be.

  • pj

    Can you imagine if Anthony Weiner were a woman politician who posted pics of her private parts? She would never have had a shot of a comeback.

  • yaddabing

    how ~ironic~ that both xf us and uk are premiering next month

    le gasp.

  • pj

    Agree with MJ. These rags are leaking stories supplied by Simon to position him as the victim. Vomit.

  • Axxxel

    Interesting timing..So if everything goes right, the baby will be born not too long after the finals…

  • springboard2

    The Daily Mail always portray Simon Cowell as a god or the planet master so their position in not surprising.

  • pj

    If Simon can’t keep his pants zipped and refuses to use a condom, why hasn’t he had a vasectomy?

  • Tinawina

    Ewwwww. Too much slime all around. Those poor kids.

  • LeoCS

    This pregnancy story looks like his new Britney’s Spears: just an attempt to get the curiosity of the viewers that won’t work.

  • Pippygirl

    I try to comfort myself with the thought that women are held to a higher standard because they are the only sex who could possibly meet it. :)

  • pj

    Not buying this tinfoil idea. I don’t think Simon would purposely create a child to ratchet up ratings for X-Factor. He may be sleazy, but I don’t see it.

  • girlygirl

    I don’t know whether she’s a gold digger or not, but she would be silly to think Simon would marry her, given his past history.

    Also, Simon deserves as much of the criticism as she does. It takes 2 people to commit adultery

  • usedtobelucy

    I feel very bad for the children in the middle of us. And possibly for the husband, although who knows, since we don’t know much about him.

    Simon and whatshername — well, I’m sure each deserves whatever crap the other is going to inflict on him/her as the little greedyguts try to get free of the situation while grabbing or holding on to however much cash they want.

    Stupid. I’m sick of it already. Although I do kind of like the idea of Simon getting himself mixed up with somebody who can cause him some real trouble — and seems as if she might be determined to. He’s too used to getting everything he wants because of his money and being able to treat others as disposable. I think he’s kind of depressive, which I’m sure contributes to his neurotic attitudes toward relationships — and that’s a sad thing. But his money has helped him develop some pretty cruddy habits when it comes to other people, I think. Would be nice if this brush with reality and a capable foe taught him something. But I suppose he’s likely just to come out of it embittered and even worse.

  • Incipit

    Geebus, how long is this pre-emptive character assassination gonna go on? Can’t his mother tell him to stop whining? I understand they are close. smh

  • girlygirl

    There’s no way he can spin this to make himself come off as a victim. Even if she is a gold digger, he could have avoided all this by simply not having sex with an already married woman. He’s screwed himself over (pardon the pun) and the majority of the people who hear about this story know that, no matter how hard they try to dump it all on Lauren Silverman

  • fuzzywuzzy

    Yeah, in this entire mess, I only feel badly for the kids.

  • fuzzywuzzy

    and Lauren’s 7-year-old son. :(

  • Pippygirl

    I really and truly doubt that anyone is buying this nonsense, no matter what Simon’s paid thugs are putting out. While people may judge her harshly because of the infidelity issue, they are probably just as likely to judge him for the “bro code” violation.

  • nyc57

    To me they are equally horrible people and the only victim is the baby.Imagine when it’s old enough to know that It’s mother only had a baby to trick a rich man to marry her.

  • Eilonwy_has_an_emu

    Naaah, if this was intended to build XF buzz, we’d be getting HappyBabyDaddy!Cowell, not this mire of mud-slinging that’s likely to make more family-oriented advertisers nervous.

    The vision of Cowell changing nappies, fitting a baby seat into his sports car, and wheeling kiddo around Kensington Garden in a very expensive carriage is sufficient to satisfy those who thrive on schadenfreude (and really, hilarious as all get-out…). Then he’d have assorted XF winners sing at the wedding. THAT would be so much more the thing.

  • TFLS

    Simon Cowell is one bankrupt human being. Not interested in him, his ego, or his shows. I feel sorry for the child to be.

  • Bugme Nomor

    She wants some space and privacy and her own reality TV show?

  • Incipit

    Yes, Fuzzywuzzy, I was not aware there was already a child involved. Even more distasteful behavior from the adults, in that case. smh

    Looking at these pictures one thing is for sure: no matter what this kid will have big boobs. lol

  • LeoCS

    I just thought he could do anything for ratings, but you’re right.

  • bestmusic

    Bah ha..ha!

  • Becky Marie

    I blame her more because she was the one with the ring on her finger. If it was the other way around he would be getting more blame.

  • chillj

    Both of these people are certainly old enough and wise enough to prevent this pregnancy from occurring. There really is no excuse.

  • chillj

    I like the way you think.

  • Kirsten

    Yet when Fantasia got pregnant with a married man, she was called numerous names and many felt it was all her fault.

    Brad Pitt cheated on Jennifer Aniston and both she and Angie got called numerous names. Brad managed to float above everything.

    IDK. Guys never seem to get the blame. Married. Unmarried. In a relationship. Whatever. It’s always those wily evil females that trap the poor lads.

    I totally agree, 100%. Lauren is no innocent, but she didn’t get pregnant alone. She didn’t commit adultery alone. Why is Simon even getting the sympathy “edit?” Some friend he turned out to be!

    It’s as you said, pure sexism. I was thinking the same thing while reading it.

  • iluvai

    blah blah blah…The baby momma is in a good place smh.

  • Ponkiiee

    Simon will support the child but marriage? is that woman delusional? LOL..

  • usedtobelucy

    ‘“She slept with Simon when he was engaged, which is why he and Mezhgan broke off their engagement,” another said.’

    Well, at least Lauren did a good deed for Mezhgan then.
