Lauren Silverman – the New York socialite who is having Simon Cowell’s baby – has settled her divorce from Andrew Silverman. Lauren’s attorneys, Robert Cohen and Bernard Clair stated, “The matter has been resolved and the parties have moved on.”
Andrew agreed in a statement saying, “As I’ve said all along, my priority was resolving this quickly for the sake of our son. Lauren and I both love him very much and I’m looking forward to starting a new chapter in our lives.”
The former couple who were married for ten years have a 7-year-old son named Adam.
An insider told Us, “They hate each other and it was in the works for a long time. Better to get it done now.”
Lauren will stay in New York and is reportedly getting around $2 million from the settlement.
The Daily News reports that Cowell met with Andrew at an airport in the Hamptons over the Aug. 2 weekend. It was the first time the men had spoken since news broke that Lauren, 36, was carrying the TV mogul’s child.
When Cowell was asked about the pregnancy news at the X Factor TCA panel on August 1 – he replied, “I would love to [talk], but I have to respect a lot of people’s feelings right now. There are a lot of things I will eventually clear up when the time is right, but I really have to be sensitive because there’s a lot of people’s feelings involved here.”
