Simon Cowell

Get Me Out of This Divorce!

8/5/2013 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0803-simon-lauren-artSimon Cowell is upset ... very upset he's in the middle of what is becoming a bitter divorce between Andrew Silverman and Simon's soon-to-be baby mama Lauren Silverman, and he's pressuring her to settle ... sources with direct knowledge of the situation tell TMZ.

We're told Simon HATES the bad publicity, which he feels is making him look like an underhanded cad.  Our sources say Simon has painted a clear picture to Lauren -- the money she'll get from Andrew is minimal because of their prenup, so any significant cash will come from Mr. X Factor himself.

We're told Lauren is nervous and doesn't want to upset Simon, so she's feeling the heat.  Her problem -- she and Andrew are at odds over custody of their 7-year-old son, and she feels she may have to give too much in order to end things and appease Simon.

Although both sides have said they want to resolve the divorce amicably for the sake of their kids, we can tell you there's a lot of bad blood on both sides and it's getting really nasty.

If he didn't want the heat he should not have dropped the seaman. Mellow out seaman man!

Simon's worried about how this makes him look? What a hoot! First of all, people don't like him anyway--he's an arrogant ass. So this doesn't change anything. And when he slept with his best friend's wife, he stuck himself in the middle of it. He did this to himself. What a fool he is.

He's upset?! LOL! Oh well!! Shouldn't have been banging his "friend's" wife. D-bag!! Also, what's up with her lower lip? Looks like she has Owen Wilson lips or something.

People getting all bent out of shape over people saying the gold-digger/social climber/tramp is a whore. I just say this: "If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck....it's a whore"!

Ooohhh poor Simon....guess he missed the episode of True Blood where Arlene told Andy "when you stick Mr. Happy inside somebodies hoo ha without a raincoat on babies come out!"....and you sure as hell don't stick it into a married woman and especially not the wife of a friend...I mean really...how stupid can you be???

Was a paternity test performed to validate that it is in fact Simon's baby? It could be someone elses.... Just saying

The only ones I feel a sense of sympathy toward are the kids.
She is obviously the penultimate gold digger and he, Simon, an utter and complete cad, nothing lower than he.
As for the hubby, don't know enough but dumping her makes him seem the one good adult in all of this.

Ahh, to be "in love." Did they really think this would end well?! Banging a friend's wife.......getting knocked up while still married to someone else....yes, all publicity surrounding this soap opera will be good.

Idiots.

People choose their paths (usually). In this case, if he didn't want the bad press, he shouldn't have stuck his wong where it didn't belong. I'm always amazed at the mentality of people that cheat on their spouses. What? You think you're special and this person won't cheat on you, too? Once a person breaks their vows, it only gets easier to do it the next time. This just proves money doesn't equate to good sense.

Maybe he should have thought twice before sleeping with a married woman. Separated is still married,

So Lauren's mom thinks Simon should do the right thing and marry Lauren. I think Lauren's mom should be more concerned that she raised a skank ho who was going more guys than she she have been doing while married. If she wasn't happy in her marriage, which is false by the way, she should have divorced him first and then moved on. I am soooo hoping Simon's brother and all these other guys whom she supposedly slept with come forward so she loses custody of her 7 year old son with Andrew and that Andrew won't have to give her a cent and that Simon goes forth for full custody of his child, if it is his child and she loses big time. Then her mommy can take care of her 36 years old ho bag daughter the way she should be taking care of her.
