Simon's Baby Mama

Custody or California

... Choose One

Simon Cowell
's baby mama Lauren Silverman is playing “LET'S MAKE A DEAL” with estranged hubby Andrew Silverman -- and door number 1 is custody … door number 2 is living with Simon in California.

As TMZ previously reported both Lauren and Andrew want custody of their 7-year-old son. Sources connected to couple tell us they are still in active negotiations to settle the divorce, which involves not only custody but finances and division of property.

Our sources say everyone in the negotiation --- including Lauren --- has conceded that she cannot move the kid 2475 air miles away from Andrew ... a judge would never buy that anyway. As a result we've learned Lauren is in the final stages of getting a NY apartment and has even taken steps to set up shop there.

Our sources say it's pretty obvious in the end neither Lauren nor Andrew will have full custody – there will be a division…. something like joint custody.

If, however, Lauren decides to move to California to be with Simon and their unborn baby, we’re told her parental role with the 7 year old will diminish significantly.

One source connected with the couple tells us … Lauren is considering the move in part because the Beverly Hills estate provides more of a shield from public scorn than the crowded streets of New York.

Sources say the negotiations are active and the progress is steady.

Wow ...    

If this B thinks she can give up her child to avoid embarrassment and not get ridiculed in Cali, she is greatly mistaken.

That's a poor excuse for moving away from her son. In NYC it's way easier to go about your business with no one (except paps) caring about you or what you do. You don't have to travel miles for stores, banking, etc...all the things you need access to in order to go about the business of life. If she leaves NY for CA it'll be for no other reason than her choosing Simon at the expense of her relationship with her son.

Joint legal custody is common the question is will she concede primary physical to the father and move to Cali considering the $$$ involved and calling all the shots for the kid I don't see any way that happens.

That's not true about NYC, she's a complete moron and doesn't know anything and thinks she can fool everyone. What kind of a socialite is she anyway? she doesn't know anything. We all know what she's going to do because to her SiCo's kid is worth more.

Perhaps this would be a good time for King Solomon to make the decision on the custody of the child. The last time he made a child custody decision, it went well.

This skank should realize her son is a lifetime commitment and her cheating partner is a temporary fling. Simon will never be a true partner- he will always find some greener grass elsewhere no matter how many vaginas he impregnates.

She isn't moving away from her son. It says she got a New York apartment, and she was plenty well-off without Simon. After all they were making out on HER mini yacht.

So..she's considering living across the country, away from her child, to avoid public scorn? Putting herself first, much?
