Simon Cowell has yet to speak publicly about his impending fatherhood.
The story broke yesterday (July 31) that Cowell, the TV impresario best-known for “The X Factor” and “American Idol,” is due to become a father with the apparently estranged wife of a man described as a friend of Cowell’s.
According to various reports out on Thursday, you can now consider Cowell and the estranged husband, New Yorker Andrew Silverman, to be ex-friends.
This story in the New York Post says Cowell is mentioned in the divorce papers filed by Silverman as he cites adultery in his effort to split from his wife, Lauren.
And this Post story has unnamed sources insisting that Cowell has already promised Lauren Silverman that he’ll marry her, now that she’s pregnant with his child.
A third story in Thursday’s Post provides details about the relationship Cowell has been having with the married Mrs. Silverman. It’s been going on for several months (she is 10 weeks pregnant, according to reports), but was hotly denied a few months ago when The Post first inquired about it, the story says.
Not to be outdone by the Post, the New York Daily News has its own story here, including comments from Lauren Silverman’s mother — the grandmother to be.
While Cowell has nade no public statements yet, he was reportedly at work Wednesday at a taping for the upcoming season of “The X Factor” on Fox.
