Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman are in love and together and having a baby, despite what an utter disaster this whole thing started out as and is surely destined to be. Lots of people are saying that Lauren is a gold-digger, because why would you give up a long ass marriage to have Simon Cowell’s lovechild? Well, because you want a paycheck, that’s why.
However, Simon has apparently turned into a hopeless romantic in recent months, and while appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, he addressed those rumours and insisted that Lauren is in it for luuuuuuuuv.
“I obviously can’t blame the media – it was kind of what I call a juicy story.
“But there was a lot of stuff that was said about her: that she trapped me and that she’s a gold-digger. It’s absolute nonsense. She’s a great girl but, like I said, it was awkward because of the circumstances.”
“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.”
Well, I can’t speak to the situation because I don’t know this woman, but it sounds like a hot mess. Simon wanted some ass, Lauren wanted The D (and not her husband’s, which is a whole other kettle of fish that enrages me, so I won’t go there today) and it ended up being a real unfortunate situation for everyone – well, at least for Lauren’s soon-to-be ex-husband.
