Carmen Electra ‘saw Simon with lover’

Carmen Electra

Carmen Electra “high-tailed” out of Simon Cowell’s home when she discovered his affair with Lauren Silverman.

Carmen and music mogul Simon briefly dated for around six months. But the pair allegedly called time on their romance when the actress-and-model became aware of his illicit affair with his friend Andrew Silverman’s wife Lauren.

Carmen, 41, was said to be “shocked and livid” when she found out that he was dating Lauren, who is now pregnant with his child.

“Carmen was at Simon’s house in L.A. when she literally busted him with Lauren. Simon called her a friend, but there was nothing platonic about what was going on, if you know what I mean,” a source told E! News.

“[Electra] high-tailed it out of there. There was no way she was going to stick around and be a third wheel.”

There seemingly isn’t any bad blood between Carmen and Simon though. When asked about the baby reports surrounding him recently, Carmen gushed about the joyful news.

“I’m so happy for him! What I witnessed working with him on Britain’s Got Talent and coming to see him during X Factor is that the people he truly believes in, he stands up for them and supports them. So I obviously think that his child will be very well taken care and very, very loved,” she said.

“I want to know if it’s a boy or a girl. It’s awesome, I’m super happy for him.”

Meanwhile, former classmates have come forward to paint Lauren in a negative light. Aaron Boros has revealed the 36-year-old American socialite longed to be famous.

“Lauren always wanted to be the center of attention. If ever there was a girl who would find herself in the middle of a scandal, it was Lauren. She said she was going to make a name for herself,” he told British newspaper The Sun.

“She was very confident, very sexy. She knew from the get-go what she wanted — and would get it.”

Lauren was best friends with Brooke Mueller at school. The star went on to marry actor Charlie Sheen, which classmates claim would have angered the attention-seeking brunette.

“We used to call Lauren a sl**ty princess behind her back. She was so in-your-face, with an ‘I’m better than you’ attitude. She and Brooke were close. They knew they were attractive to boys and thought that made them superior. They attracted the jocks, those on the football team. If you were not in their clique you just stayed clear of them,” one former female classmate said. “They had all the boys hanging round them.”

Another added: “Lauren was very aware of her sexuality and knew how to use it to get the boys she wanted. I wouldn’t say she was sleeping with all the boys, but Lauren was never short of male company. I’m sure Lauren was very jealous when Brooke hooked up with Charlie Sheen. That would have annoyed her, as it meant she was more famous.”
