Simon Cowell's ex Sinitta has confessed that she was stunned when she heard the news about Simon Cowell and Lauren. She also stated that Cowell was the one who broke it to her.
"I was completely and utterly stunned. I was in such a daze, to the point where I wondered if I was dreaming it. He sounded... odd, calm, strange, which threw me. I don't mind admitting all sorts of emotions were running around inside me," she stated. She also added that he was concerned how she would react to it.
"He was concerned about how I'd take it, which, on reflection, he didn't need to be. He didn't owe me that consideration," Sinitta added.
It was previously reported the 53-year-old Britain's Got Talent (BGT) chief has fathered a child with Silverman, the 36-year-old wife of ex-friend Andrew Silverman. Cowell has offered child support to the tune of £3m-a-year, which would continue till the baby reaches the legal age of adulthood in America. The £63m deal is reportedly spread over 21 years. Meanwhile, reports have emerged that the affair has been going on for four years now.
"Lauren has loved Simon forever. And they started having an affair four years ago. The relationship began as a fling, but the baby -- due in February -- changed everything. Simon and Lauren are together. They talk 100 times a day," a source close to Lauren stated. Cowell recently opened up on the Ellen DeGeneres show about Lauren and stated that he was the happiest with her.
"Because everyone knows, it was well documented, it was kind of uncomfortable. You know, the situation. But these things happen and everything is kind of calm now and I'm happy. I'm actually happier than I've ever been. I can't blame the media because they've got a juicy story. But there was a lot of stuff said about her, that she trapped me and that she's a gold digger. Absolute nonsense. She's a great girl, but it was awkward because of the circumstances," Cowell stated.
