Did Simon Cowell knock up his friend’s wife BEFORE they split?

Since the buzz around The Royal Baby and Kim Kardashian and Kanye West‘s fame spawn has died down, the big story this week is that Simon Cowell knocked up his best friend’s wife. Seriously, the guy was on American Idol for almost a decade, are you telling me he couldn’t afford to pick up some condoms? Maybe get a vasectomy? Either way, despite the fact that Simon’s baby mama Lauren Silverman and her hubby Andrew Silverman are separated right now, it turns out Simon may have knocked her up while she and Andrew were still together. TMZ reports …

There’s some proof to back Andrew — photos of Lauren and Simon kissing during a yacht vacation a year ago. By the way, Andrew was also on that trip. Andrew, we’re told, just wants out of the marriage and away from Lauren and Simon, and he’s willing to settle custody and financial issues quickly. For now, he’s asking for full custody of their 7-year-old son, but it appears from what we know that’s a negotiable point. A source close to Lauren tells TMZ … Lauren and her husband were over before she and Simon entered into any kind of relationship.

For some reason, all I can think about right now is that episode of Friends where Ross goes, “We were on a break!” I’m not sure how the specifics of knocking up your best friend’s estranged wife works, but I’m guessing there’s some window after they break up where you totally shouldn’t be doing that. Once again: Not an expert on impregnating other people’s wives, but that just seems like a no-brainer.
