Simon Cowell

He'll Pay Dearly

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.

Of course he'll pay dearly. That was the whole purpose of her putting out for him. It's so much easier than having to worry about a divorce settlement. I'd also bet Simon wasn't the first potential sperm donor that made a deposit in the bank.

Can't Andrew sue Simon for alienation of affection? Does England allow the spouse of a cheater to sue?

People need to grow the hell up and stop using their children as pawns in divorce proceedings to get back at their spouses.

Just My Opinion    

Another Oksana , has these kids, and then someone else takes care of them. Funny, Mel Gibson said the same thing about Oksana not being a good mother. This chick here hangs out with celebs, Oksana hangs out with any Jo that will help her get another cd made. LOL I see more of Mel Gibson with his daughter lately than I have Oksana. This guy here should get is 7 year old son, and Mel should get his daughter too. Simon should follow the doctor's advice and keep it in his pants or get fix.

This woman is smart, have hot sex with Simon, get pregnant and then take all of Simon money, like she was doing to her current husband. Women are not dumb about getting millions for nothing, they know what it takes to get the man millions.

How could Simon think his public image would be harmed by this news? His public image has always been bad because of his ridiculous, nasty behavior...
