According to TMZ, Cowell is urging his baby-mama Lauren Silverman to settle a divorce with her husband, real estate tycoon Andrew Silverman, as fast as she can.
The site writes that Simon doesn’t like the negative PR that all this scandal is bringing along.
Lauren is said to be trying not to upset Simon. The situation is all the more delicate as she and Andrew are battling over the custody of their 7-year-old son.
Last week Andrew and Lauren broke the silence over the scandal as they both release separate statements.
“My top priority is protecting my 7-year-old son while working to resolve all outstanding issues with my wife,” Andrew said in a statement issued Thursday. “Hopefully people can respect the interest of our child during this process.”
For her part, Lauren said: “I am committed to sorting things out with Andrew as amicably as possible to ensure the well-being of our son. I would hope for some space and privacy in order to work through this.”
