Simon Cowell is a homewrecker whose adulterous actions with his friend’s wife – which led to her getting knocked up – is now the reason why the couple are officially divorcing, according to court documents.
Simon’s friend Andrew Silverman has filed divorce documents at the Manhattan Supreme Court in New York, seeking the dissolution of his marriage to his wife Lauren Silverman due to her ‘acts of adultery’, noting also that her action was a ‘cruel and inhuman treatment of’ him.
Andrew named himself as the plaintiff, while Lauren and Simon are co-defendants. This development is going to be an extremely tough situation for Cowell ‘cos in New York, if it is proven that adultery is the reason for a divorce, the cheating party will be forced to take a DNA test, which is hard to get in New York when a couple is married and the wife gets pregnant by another man.
In the court docs, Andrew states, ‘The nature of this action is: to dissolve the marriage between the parties based upon (1) the commission of acts of adultery by the defendant and (2) defendant’s cruel and inhuman treatment of the plaintiff.’
He is also seeking the full custody of their 7-year old son.
Simon has remained mum over the shocking development and has refused to talk to the media about it when he was spotted on Wednesday – the day the news broke (watch video).
There is more to this disturbing story: Lauren has been labelled by her friends as a ‘a total gold digger’ who carefully planned the pregnancy to trap the X Factor creator – worth around $350 million – into paying baby daddy money, as well as to use him to climb the social radar. ‘The pregnancy was by design,’ one of her friends told the NY Post.
And contrary to reports that the couple were ‘estranged’ during the affair, one of her friends said that it was not true. ‘The Silvermans weren’t estranged. The suggestion that she was an estranged wife who fell into another man’s arms is not the case.’
Instead, Andrew reportedly was so unaware of the affair going on behind his back that he recently upgraded her wedding ring with a 10-karat diamond.
According to respected attorneys, Andrew’s move to include Cowell as a co-respondent in the divorce suit is rare, and it means trouble in high places. ‘It’s really a signal to the spouse who cheated that the wronged spouse is very angry and that it’s going to be a very nasty, scorched-earth, high-profile litigation,’ admitted famous divorce attorney Martha Cohen Stine.
‘It is an unbelievable story of betrayal. It is a sad story and a tragic story,’ said Andrew’s brother Alexander.
