Simon Cowell

He'll Pay Dearly

For Love Child

The friend Simon Cowell betrayed wants out of his marriage STAT ... because he thinks his wife is a starf**ker who doesn't need any money from him because she'll get a ton of cash from Simon ... sources close to the couple tell TMZ.

Our sources say Andrew Silverman is gunning for primary custody of their 7-year-old son because Lauren is deficient as a parent ... often disappearing for long periods of time to hang with celebs.  We're told Andrew found out of her affair with Simon this Spring, and was shocked when he saw a pic on TMZ Friday ... showing Simon and Lauren kissing in August, 2012, on a boat HE chartered.

We're told there is a prenup and the money issues in the divorce are "minor."  The real issue is custody.  As one source said, aside from the fact that Andrew doesn't think Lauren is a very good parent, there's an element of revenge for being utterly humiliated.

We're told all 3 people in the relationship want the divorce to happen ASAP.  Simon feels it's a disaster for his TV show and public image.  As for Lauren and Andrew, they both agree on one thing ... Simon pays well.  They both expect Simon will do what he's done with his other girlfriends -- open up the vault.

I'm not sure custody is going to be an issue. Having your baby in the house is one thing, but somehow I just can't see Cowell being thrilled at having a 7 year old boy running around the house - a house that's 3000 miles away from the boy's dad. I think his father will be the custodial parent, and mom will pack up her bags and move to Beverly. Hills, that is. Movie stars. Swimming pools....

**Public Service Announcement for Wealthy Middle Aged White Men** :

If your wife/partner is drop dead gorgeous(waaay out of your league), and you have nothing visually (or intellectually) to offer- then she's with you because she's Your whore. Not A whore, but You're whore. You pay her to find you desirable, and that's ok if you're into that kind of thing. However, for a woman with a proclivity towards using her looks to acquire wealth there's no telling when she'll move on to more lucrative ventures.

So- Andrew Silverman is dumb for being involved with the whore(if his intention was to have genuine relationship), and for being so dumbfounded about what was going on.

Works for Simon Cowell though. He seems to be into the Sugar Daddy thing.

Alright Andrew, you're actually doing the right thing, going after primary custody. I have no doubt you have plenty of proofs to back up your claims that your ex is a pathetic mother, and, ultimately, this will guarantee that Lauren wouldn't get another cent from you after the prenup is enforced. We can also all agree it will definitely be a good thing if your son hang out as little as possible with Cowell - he's not even 10 yet, so the last thing he needs is to be influence by a genuine douchebag.

Lauren... you slut.

And, too late Simon - your public image is right now as valuable as a bag of poop. When you f*ck around with Man Code, people can justifiably look you down for A LONG period of time, regardless of your wealth and/or fame. You have to do something pretty major to turn this fiasco around, so, since the only things you really do is review and produce music, it's highly doubtful we will see, from now on, as anything but a selfish, disgusting a-hole. Pretty sure it's gonna get worse before it gets any better, so get ready, you disgusting limey...

Ha ha! This "mom" is going to have another kid to shove off on someone while she travels the world? Isn't her 7 y/old in "camp" in the Hamptons which she just ran away to? Nice.

Since Simon Cowell is British, the UK press has had a field day crucifying him. TMZ, which will suck the cocque of any celebrity that could get them some cash is actually being nice. Here's a taste of the British Press:

Look at them....it's all about the money. I haven't heard Simon will raise the child...it's Simon will pay, pay, pay...And that's exactly what he will do. He will buy a house and pay child support and see the child maybe once a month. The other times, he's parading with all his ex-girlfriends on a boat cruise in Bahamas.

I cant stop laughing at the "Simon thinks it's a disaster for his TV show and public image" comment! What a hoot! His t.v. show sucks, and people can't stand him anyway. What public image? His image is that of an arrogant ass that cares about nobody but himself, and he proved that by having an affair with his best friends' wife.

I think Simon paid him to get some tussy from his Wife. You can't tell me from looking at those pictures on the yacht, that he didnt know Simon was f**cking his Wife, and he wasnt in on it. The great Philosopher Bob Marley, "you can fool some people sometimes, but you cant fool all the people all the time". He didnt thing he would knock her up though.

Anyway, a hoe is a hoe is a hoe. Don't know who said that

SIMON AND SILVERMAN SEND SLOOT TO RIYADH!

Lauren Silverman was tricked into flying to Riyadh by her husband, Andrew and A$$hole of the Decade Simon Cowell, because she was told she will be The Star of Housewives of Riyadh, Producer and Director with an unlimited budget! With a suitcase full of cash, she hopped aboard the Private Gulf Stream.

Unfortunately, the Gold $ucking Sloot Lauren was unaware that she will be a Star, but in an entirely different production, The Stoning of The Sloot, or This Cnut Deserves It or Fidelity For Infidels; the name has not been finalized.

After a private meeting Andrew and Simon decided that Lauren was a nightmare and they only wanted to support part of her dreams/delusions. They joint financed what they call The Final Solution.

They jointly released this statement “Bro’s before Ho’s! We are very happy to be Besties again!”

"Revenge" is not a good reason to go after sole custody. You have to think about your child/ren first. Unless she's unfit they should have joint custody.
