Simon Cowell may seem like a tough guy on TV, but in reality, the X Factor judge is a big softy at heart. Us Weekly recently revealed that the media magnate is expecting his first child with New York socialite Lauren Silverman, and, a source tells Us Weekly, he is determined to "take care of everything."
"Simon told Lauren not to worry and he will take care of everything," the source tells Us. "He always takes care of his women. He gave Mezghan a salary and bought her a house. He bought Terry tons of fancy clothes and cars. He's very generous to his ladies."
"He told her whatever Andrew throws at her or says about her he will take care of her so not to worry and not to let it bother her," the source continued.
As Us Weekly exclusively revealed on Wednesday, Silverman, 36, is about 10 weeks pregnant with Cowell's baby. She is already a mother to a 7-year-old son with estranged husband Andrew Silverman, who happens to be close friends with Cowell, 53.
And although insiders told Us that the Silvermans had been "unhappy in their marriage for some time," Andrew's divorce papers claim that wasn't the case, with Andrew even naming Cowell as a co-respondent in the filings.
"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," divorce attorney Martha Cohen Stine explained to the Post.
Lauren's mother, Carole Saland, told Us that her daughter "doesn't deserve all of this bad publicity," calling the socialite "a nice girl from Miami Beach."
"Things happen in life," she told Us. "[We are] living in 2013. Her marriage was not a marriage made in heaven and life goes on, people go on."
