Lauren Silverman divorce settlement
Simon Cowell can breathe a sigh of relief - Lauren Silverman has reached a settlement over her divorce, according to reports.
The New York Post claimed Lauren, who is pregnant with Simon's child, agreed a seven-figure payout.
Her husband, Andrew, said in a statement: "As I've said all along, my priority was resolving this quickly for the sake of our son."
He said of his seven-year-old son: "Lauren and I both love him very much, and I'm looking forward to starting a new chapter in our lives."
New York socialite Lauren, 36, and her husband had a long-standing close friendship with Simon, and the music mogul is reported to be named in her divorce papers.
Both Simon and Lauren have stayed silent on the rumours.
Simon's mother Julie is said to be "delighted" about the news that her son is to become a father for the first time, telling The Sun: "It's wonderful!"
Meanwhile, a source claimed to E! News that Simon's ex, Carmen Electra, dumped the X Factor mogul after catching him with Lauren in his mansion in Los Angeles.
"Carmen was at Simon's house when she literally busted him with Lauren," an insider said. "Simon called her a friend, but there was nothing platonic about what was going on between them".
