Simon Cowell’s Baby, Cheating Scandal: His Ex Calls It a “Nightmare”?!

You think your Monday was tough? Imagine finding out that your ex with whom you’re still close had gotten one of your mutual friends pregnant. Oh, and did we mention that this mutual friend is married to another friend of yours? Talk about awkward.

No, this isn’t some weird soap opera or new reality show. This is real life. In fact, it’s the life of ‘80s British pop star Sinitta, who just found out earlier this week that her ex, Simon Cowell, had knocked up their mutual friend, Lauren Silverman. Lauren is currently married to NYC real estate mogul Andrew Silverman — though probably not for long. He just filed for divorce, and the paperwork specifically calls out Simon and Lauren’s adultery as grounds for the split.

Sinitta hasn’t officially addressed the baby mama cheating scandal yet, but she did tweet something on Monday — and plenty of people are convinced she’s talking about Simon and Lauren’s pregnancy.

“Something has just happened ..half miracle, half nightmare! #WakeMeUpIWantToGetOff!!” Sinitta tweeted on July 29.

Why do we think this is related? Pregnancies are often referred to as "miracles," while the emotional turmoil of the whole episode could definitely feel like a nightmare for the singer. Simon and Sinitta are still friends, and they even went on a luxurious yacht vacation back in Summer 2011... with Lauren and Andrew! Who knows if Lauren and Simon were a thing back then or not. But if they were: awkward.

This real life drama is even crazier than most TV shows. Somebody get these four their own reality series stat.
