Simon Cowell

Lauren's Divorce Settlement

Simon, Stay Away From Her Son ... OR ELSE!

11/14/2013 10:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Simon Cowell'
s baby mama, Lauren Silverman, signed a divorce settlement agreement which has a shocking penalty -- if Simon goes near her 7-year-old son, she has to pay her ex a $50,000 PENALTY!

TMZ is privy to the unbelievable settlement agreement, which also provides that if Lauren violates the Simon stay-away clause 3 times, she loses all contact with her son, Adam, until a court deals with the violations.

The Simon stay-away clause only lasts until January, 2015.   So presumably the kid can be around Simon in a year ... if he's still part of Lauren's life.

But the plot thickens.  The settlement agreement also provides Andrew Silverman, Lauren's ex, cannot trash Simon to Adam and has a legal obligation to make sure no one else around him talks smack.

And there's a clause in the settlement that provides Lauren and Andrew both agree to prevent Adam from calling anyone other than them "mother" or "father."  Translation:  Simon is not your daddy.

Andrew agrees to pay Lauren $3k a month in child support ... a modest amount and it goes to what TMZ has been reporting ... that Simon will become the cash cow.

Finally, Lauren and Andrew agreed to change the cause of divorce from adultery to "broken down irretrievably."

Simon is a chain smoke and has made it a point to let everyone know he intends to keep smoking baby or not. So it makes sense he does not want to expose his son to second hand smoke.

Andrew is probably doing this because Lauren will be all about her new baby next year and trying to hang onto Simon and squeezing her son in around Simon. So he is really making it easy for her.

I can see this woman trying to get cute by having both her kids call Simon daddy. Andrew is having none of it.

And it's all for not because Lauren is just a passing fancy. She'll be thrown to the curb as soon as this baby arrives and she starts making demands on Simon.

It is very interesting that Andrew requested for Simon to stay away from his 7 yr. old son. What a request...That's a big redflag.

So my question is: Is she a better "Lady" than the ones who has a sex tape and sold it for cash?

I wonder how much Simon paid Andrew for this clause. When he wants Andrew's wife all to himself he has it. When he wants to get away from her he has the perfect excuse.

Ah, the state of moral affairs in our society. Similar to Kim K. Getting pregnant by one man while married to another. And we think of them as "stars". We are one depraved culture

I do not understand why she agreed to that, meaning her son can't come for weekends, vacation. etc for a year? A judge should have mediated that.

Sounds like Andrew is mad, wants to punish everyone for the divorce, including his son. Way to go Andrew, you sound like a angry spoiled man.

I am baffled by her ex's jealousy? Simon is brutally honest on tv and I'm sure he's brutally honest to spoiled little rich kids too. This is one for Springer.

He doesn't like kids anyway but my question is do they not live in the same house?

Damn it, Andrew! Don't you dare act bitter or angry re Lauren's cheating, scandalous ways with Simon Cowell, it just makes you seem pathetic. I know you are angry, hurting, and disappointed, but hit her and Simon with an attitude of "I don't give a rat's a$$ about you or Simon as long as our son is taken care of. In fact, Hallelujah! Rid of your shameful a$$ & now I can find REAL love. Oh, PS, good luck with Simon, he's a real catch, if you like swingers!!" There's just soooo many things Andrew could do, say, and behave like having way more impact on Lauren than stupid "child-adult guidelines" because the two boys (one not born yet) will grow up knowing they have 2 different dads with 1 mom, and the truth will come out soon enough re what happened.

The whole thing sounds absurd. What an immature settlement and rules. Grow up already. I feel bad for the poor kid involved because he will be the one that really suffers. it's too bad that people can't put their kids feelings before their own petty crap.
