Hell talk about The X Factor but Simon Cowell prefers to remain mum when it comes to the ex factor.
During Thursdays (August 1) Television Critics Association press tour, Cowell was asked about his impending fatherhood. The ex-pectant mother of his unborn baby is his ex-friend Andrew Silvermans soon-to-be ex wife Lauren. Thats a lot of exes.
Cowell wouldnt say whether the pregnancy came as a surprise. I appreciate the question. Unfortunately I have to keep this, for the moment, private. Its just one of those things, he said.
Andrew Silverman has filed for divorce from his wife, accusing her and Cowell of committing adultery.
Andrew publicly addressed the mess Thursday for the first time. In a statement he wrote, My top priority is protecting my 7-year-old son while working to resolve all outstanding issues with my wife. Hopefully people can respect the interest of our child during this process.
