Simon Cowell is hating all the bad publicity!

Last week, the world found out that Simon Cowell impregnated his friend and real estate mogul Andrew Silverman‘s wife because, well, when the cause of your divorce is celebrity sperm fertilizing your ova, people invariably hear about it. Anyway, Simon is pretty pissed about it and is demanding his baby mama, New York socialite Lauren Silverman, quickly and quietly finalize the divorce so everyone just forgets about the whole “knocking up a married lady” thing. TMZ reports …

Simon Cowell is upset … very upset he’s in the middle of what is becoming a bitter divorce between Andrew Silverman and Simon’s soon-to-be baby mama Lauren Silverman, and he’s pressuring her to settle … sources with direct knowledge of the situation tell TMZ. We’re told Simon HATES the bad publicity, which he feels is making him look like an underhanded cad. Our sources say Simon has painted a clear picture to Lauren — the money she’ll get from Andrew is minimal because of their prenup, so any significant cash will come from Mr. X Factor himself. We’re told Lauren is nervous and doesn’t want to upset Simon, so she’s feeling the heat. Her problem — she and Andrew are at odds over custody of their 7-year-old son, and she feels she may have to give too much in order to end things and appease Simon.

Once again, not that I’m an expert on these sorts of things, but I just feel like a better way to make all this go away is maybe don’t sleep with your best friend’s wife? I’m just saying, when you consider how many people out there DON’T have sex with their best friend’s wife and impregnate them, I feel like this one is kind of a no-brainer.
