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.

They're both in on it. Its gonna be a HUGE payday for the Silvermans... Why didn't Simon just give her a "chin omelet" instead??? He had to blow his load in her...what a dumbass.

How about all 3 of this self-serving adults stop thinking about themselves, and focus on the little boy, and on the baby that's coming. Having these 3 in their lives is enough of a burden for these children.

so what difference does that make when he found out?! they were/are married and now that you know he knows, he wants a divorce for adultery which is true. Simon will not marry her but she will get great child support and he will eventually move on to the next woman. no values.

Wow, I have a bunch of friends that are guys that I talk to on the phone and sometimes hang out with, not everyone is out there cheating and I hate people think this guy should have known. If you are married you should trust your spouse, that's what marriage is supposed to be about.

You would think that if Andrew wasn't sleeping with his wife, somebody else probably was, and who has Andrew been with?

If Andrew didn't know, it's probably because Simon was banging Andrew too.

Simon just made the biggest a** out of himself. I don't care how rich he is this was a stupid move. He could have found a single women to have a child with not going after a married women. This guy has no boundaries.

Conspiracy Theory - Andrew and Lauren are conspiring together. She's "pregnant", he puts up a huge custody fight for their existing kid. Simon gives Andrew large sum of money to go away. All of sudden Lauren "loses" the baby and goes back to Andrew. Damn - I should be writing for Hollywood!

I think there were swingers. But the fact that they did they "business" behind Andrew is a no no rule for swingers.
