Lauren Silverman is expected to reach a divorce agreement this week, after Simon Cowell secretly met her estranged husband.
It was recently revealed that socialite Lauren is expecting a child with the music mogul, who is good friends with her spouse Andrew. Simon was named by Andrew in divorce papers, and the TV star is apparently pushing to keep his name out of legal proceedings.
Speculation has surfaced that the two men held a covert meeting in the Hamptons earlier this month to discuss the situation. The chat is believed to have helped Andrew consider a divorce agreement, and a deal is expected to be reached before the end of the week.
“Everyone is trying to resolve this amicably. Andrew and Simon have been friends for six years so there is a lot of history there,” a source explained to New York Daily News’ Confidenti@l column.
“They met in private because so much about this story has leaked out to the press and they really wanted this to be between them…
“Everyone is trying to sort this out fairly and quickly. We all expect it to be wrapped up by the end of the week.”
The sit-down reportedly took place at Francis S. Gabreski Airport over the weekend of August 2 and was the first time the men had spoken since the scandal broke. Simon is believed to have flown there after watching a One Direction concert in Las Vegas on the Friday.
The location for the meet up is close to where 36-year-old Lauren has been staying with her young son Adam on Long Island.
“Everyone is conscious that there is a seven-year-old boy that is the priority here,” the source added. “Lauren and Simon are together and they are working everything out as best they can. Simon is happy and excited and in a great place. He is supportive of Lauren and looking forward to becoming a dad.”
Simon is currently enjoying a holiday in the South of France. The 53-year-old is apparently planning to rent an apartment for Lauren in Manhattan while the divorce is being finalised.
Last week it was reported Simon will hand over the key to a $15 million mansion in Beverly Hills, so he will be nearby Lauren when the baby arrives early next year.
