According to the New York Daily News, Cowell wants the adultery accusations to be dropped from the documents.
“The lawyers are working out an agreement to drop the adultery claims,” a source close to Lauren told the publication.
The report also adds that Cowell was never friends with his baby mama’s husband, Andrew Silverman.
“They were friends because of Lauren,” the source said. “He wants Andrew out of his life. Andrew’s acting out because he’s embarrassed. He named Simon in the divorce papers when there was no need to. Hopefully by next week Simon will be out of this.”
In addition, the 53-year-old is said to be smitten with Lauren and also excited about the prospect of becoming a first-time dad.
“They’re totally in love,” the source said. “They speak multiple times a day. Simon was surprised, but he’s very excited about the baby. He wants to have a girl, but they won’t know until the amniocentesis” in the fourth month.
The only public comment on the situation coming from Cowell so far was at FOX’s Television Critics Association panel on Thursday: “I have to keep this private.”
