So tell me how you planned on making that happen without hurting your so-called BFF at the time.
Simon clearly didn’t know how strange he came off in this interview with The Mirror because what he’s saying is just so absurd that you can’t even take his words seriously.
So the backstory to this all is that Simon and Lauren were having sex behind Andrew’s back. Lauren clearly has no class seeing that not only was she married, she also had a child by her hubby who was also shocked to learn mommy was sleeping with the guy from X Factor.
The self-proclaimed music mogul has now said that he’s sorry how things went down, but then went on to say that something beautiful came out of it… which is his baby boy, of course.
“I regret that part,” Cowell said when talking about the cheating affair. But then of course you have a baby and you look at the baby and you kinda go, ‘This is what happened from it.’”
Oh, and that makes it right, does it?
“In this situation you are not going to come out of this well because of the circumstances. It is not something I am proud of or wanted to happen in terms of hurting anyone. It just happened. “You have to deal with it and man up to it. You have to accept the responsibility and the criticism.”
Simon Cowell had said in the past that he would never want to have kids; he couldn’t see himself being a father, especially not around babies who cry throughout the night and can become “difficult to deal with” when they grow up.
Cowell went on to tell the British newspaper that throughout the time he was sleeping with Lauren in 2013, he was depressed and alone. He had immensely failed at reviving X Factor — well actually, it’s not called “reviving” when the show was never a hit.
He was “attempting” to make X Factor a hit but just like Regina George said in Mean Girls: “Stop trying to make it happen,” were the words the nation screamed back as ratings proved to be horrible week on week and the show eventually got pulled.
“Did a doctor say I was depressed? Yeah. I mean I knew it myself.”
“You are always looking for the next high from the show and then actually if you haven’t got anyone to share it with per se, or if you haven’t got a family around you, you can go a bit nuts.”
What do you make of Simon’s chitty chat?
