Is Jennifer Lopez Playing Go-Between For Simon Cowell and His Baby’s Mother?

This is by far the most bizarre story of the day. Apparently Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman, the woman he got pregnant (his friend’s wife, no less), aren’t speaking but still have to be in some form of contact. Enter… Jennifer Lopez (?) who is apparently passing messages between the two until Silverman’s divorce is finalized. Of course, her reps have furiously denied the story.

From Digital Spy:

Rumors started after it emerged Lopez was negotiating a possible return to American Idol and is a neighbor of the Silvermans in New York’s East Hamptons.

A source close to the star said: “What a load of nonsense, Jennifer and Lauren have met, but have not kept in contact. They are not close friends at all.”

Well, that clears that up. Who even came up with that story? Like Jennifer Lopez would even care! Also, it’s a bit late to pull the “no contacting one another” thing at this point considering the damage is definitely already done, but whatever. This whole story is weird and a total mess and Simon is going to be pulling a lot of money out of his wallet to try and fix this shit.
