Lauren Silverman — the woman who is pregnant with Simon Cowell‘s baby — is telling close friends she is outraged at her estranged husband’s “shock” that Simon was having an affair with her during her marriage. Lauren says he knew what was going on the whole time and he was doing the same thing.
Sources close to Lauren say that Lauren is upset and defending herself stating that she hooked up with Simon partly because her estranged husband Andrew Silverman was parading around the world and partying with girls on various continents.
What’s more … Lauren is telling her friends her relationship with Simon evolved right in front of Andrew and he never said he had a problem with it — it was a sort of mutual understanding.
Lauren is saying she would speak to Simon several times a day on the telephone and Andrew knew they were talking.
Lauren says she visited Simon in England several times and Andrew had no problem with the trips — and it was obvious what was going on.
Lauren is beyond pissed that Andrew is now acting shocked and hurt, because she says he knew everything from the get go.
As for their divorce, Lauren is telling friends, there are no real money issues. The real sticking point is their 7-year-old son. Andrew wants full custody but Lauren is saying no way in hell will he get that.
In fact … Lauren says she wants primary custody and will fight tooth and nail to get it. Although she admits that she sometimes travels, she says he is away much more than her and she is the better parent.
TMZ received an email from the pregnant girlfriend of Simon Cowell, Lauren Silverman’s lawyer, saying “Many of the statements [in our story] are simply inaccurate,” though he does not specify which. He adds the parties are trying to settle the case confidentially, on a “private basis.”
