Simon Cowell is enjoying a guys’ holiday amid his baby news scandal.
Last month it was revealed the music mogul is expecting a child with Lauren Silverman, the wife of Simon’s friend Andrew.
Despite the ensuing media frenzy, the father-to-be has taken time off to enjoy a vacation on a speedboat in the South of France.
The star is usually known for taking trips with his ‘harem’ of women pals, but this time around he chose a group of male friends to accompany him.
Simon was seen laughing and joking with his pals as they boarded a Van Dutch boat in St Tropez, which then delivered them to the nearby yacht.
Meanwhile, Lauren has remained in New York, where she was spotted keeping her baby bump covered up in the Hamptons area.
Simon has been known to spend luxurious holidays with female friends including his ex-fiancée Mezhgan Hussainy and former flames Sinitta and Jackie St Clair, but the ladies were nowhere to be seen.
Lauren and Andrew are currently in the process of getting a divorce and it’s thought Simon will stay away from the socialite until things have been finalized.
Apparently their affair had been going on for some time and Andrew is said to be citing adultery and the 53-year-old’s name as reasons for a divorce.
Simon is reportedly worried about the court case “humiliating” him and is allegedly prepared to pay a great deal to keep intimate details private during the proceedings.
