Simon Cowell

Lauren's Divorce Settlement

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

EXCLUSIVE

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 never wanted kids. She tricked him into it. What's he gonna do? He has to make the best of it and put up a brave face. Why does he want to go near that boy anyway?
What does she care about her other son? She's a gold digger. Now she has another baby with a bigger fish, the other one is just a spare.
It's amazing how all Simon's girlfriends look alike. Wonder how long this one will last. That's why she had to trick him into a kid so she can have him on the hook for life.

I agree with the restrictions, except for the part that her ex husband has to kiss Cowell's ass. He doesn't deserve a modi*** of respect. And I think the stay away order should be indefinite. I also don't think they should have changed the divorce reason, though I fail to see why it matters. But an adulterer is an adulterer, and she deserves to be called what she is. Simon will probably move on to younger and even dumber before 2015. So she'll be living off of two baby daddies.

I say good for Simon!! At least he doesnt have to deal with someone elses 7 year old. Sounds like a good plan, which, am sure he's thrilled over! I also think he will be an excellent "hands on" dad- but, remains to be seen.

Why does Andrew even have to pay child support, if the kid is not even his?

My ex husband left me when my kids were 3 and 4 years old. Never in a million years would i ever try to keep our children from their father. Even the every other weekend was out of the question. We did our own divorce (through a paralegal)..we made our own custody schedule. (my house mon. tues., his wed. thurs., mine fri. sat. & sun. Then he starts out the next week. That way we both have equal time with the kids. As it is 13 years later...after both have remarried...we go to dinner together, soccer, holidays, bbq's, whatever. We all get along..and we all care for each other. But most of all...the kids have great heads on their shoulders..and they have 4 parents to thank for that. C'mon people...is it really worth it to fight and make life miserable for one another. This way is so much easier.

Can't believe the courts went along with this garbage. Sounds like a real control freak to me. I think Simon did a great job stepping up to his responsibility. I wish them well against all the odds. I feel sorry for the little boy. He is a pawn in his parents madness. Then when all is said and done it is only for a year. This would only make sense to a control freak.

This is one of the dumbest settlements I have heard in a while. Only a control freak would do this kind of thing. Insanity at its best.

The father of boy is a wuss for doing this....Obviously she left him for other equally childish and insensitive acts. Loser.
