Simon Cowell

Scorned Hubby Says, DUH

Simon Cowell
's relationship with Lauren Silverman was going on right under Andrew Silverman's nose, and he at the very least "kinda knew" what was going on ... this according to friends of the couple.

Multiple sources tell TMZ ... Lauren would spend hours on the phone at her home talking to Simon, and Andrew heard the whole thing.  Several of their friends tell us they believe Andrew knew that Simon was banging his wife, and they think the outrage he's expressing now is a giant crock.

Several sources close to Andrew shade the story slightly differently.  They say Andrew is telling them looking back there were plenty of "warning signs" but he just didn't pick up on them.  They also acknowledge Andrew knew that Simon and Lauren were "flirting," but he didn't think that necessarily meant they were banging.

As for settling the divorce ... we're told they're still at an impasse, but continue to talk.

You know, they COULD have kept their mouths closed and no one would have known a thing. No TMZ, no nothing.

What difference does it make. I believe Andrew was in denial. Most victims (Andrew) are obviously in denial. She mentally abused his guy by talking to Simon for hours on the phone in front of him. Whether or not he "suspected" something was going on is moot. Simon and Laura were wrong, twisted, sick and self absorbed if they believe this type of behavior was okay during a marriage. Simon behavior is kinda shocking. He reputation is built on honesty not cheating or lying. I don't see him in the same light anymore. I feel sorry for his child. No matter what, I would not want to have my child have a mother who is a certified home wrecker.

Where is the choice for 'Who Cares'?

Also TMZ-I notice nothing is being done about the copious amounts of spam on this site.

When men play games they think there on top of the world. But when women play the game back they (men) cant handle it because women go so hard. And she went hard. Smh a lil to hard lol

Either way, Simon is a douche and mrs.Silverman is a **** up. Andrew probably suspected but didn't accuse

What a desperate fame-slut-with-daddy-issues whore to want Cowell's hairy-manboob-nicotine-laden semen in her.

The only positive is that Cowell is more than well-equppied to breastfeed the little bugger.

I think what happened here is that Andrew was so into himself and involved in doing his own "dirt" that he wasn't paying attention to his whore of a wife who was being wined and dined by Cowell. So eventually things just fell into place and they went all of the way. Andrew is not innocent. I don't feel bad for either one of them. Nasty asses.

It just goes to show that no matter how much money anyone has class, morals, values and decency cannot be bought. Simon should go by an island somwhere and live away from society.

As others have already noticed, this is the same story TMZ had before, with just a few words changed here and there. TMZ probably thinks it can get alot of reactions about people that are eminently hate-able, like Simon Cowell, but it won't work in this case. Unlike Justin Bieber or the Kardashians or Rihanna, Simon isn't so much hate-able as creepy and gross.

These people contribute nothing to society. Better off without the three of them. Clinical narcissists all!
