The love triangle between “The X Factor” judge Simon Cowell, Lauren Silverman and her husband, Andrew Silverman, continues to get more complicated. Andrew filed for divorce from his wife, citing adultery and naming Cowell as a co-respondent. That news came after it was reported that Simon and Lauren were expecting a child together.
Now, according to TMZ, Lauren says that her husband playing victim and being shocked by the affair is just an act. According to a source, she says that her husband not only knew about the affair, which included multiple trips to visit Simon, but was having his own fun on the side. In fact, the source says part of the reason Lauren and Simon got together was due to Andrew’s partying with girls around the world.
As for the divorce, Lauren is reported to be upset that Andrew is seeking full custody of their 7-year-old son. The source says she wants primary custody of the child and will put up a fight to get it. Financial terms of the split are not said to be much of a point of contention between the two.
Simon dodged questions about the situation during the TCA summer press tour presentation for “The X Factor,” telling reporters, “Unfortunately, I have to keep this, for the moment, private.”
