Lauren Silverman is set to get a share of $4 million of the multi-million dollar pre-nup she signed before marrying Andrew Silverman – despite breaking a cheating clause.
Lauren Silverman, who is expecting a baby with Simon Cowell, has held “productive conversations” with her estranged husband as they continue to thrash out their divorce agreement.
Andrew and Lauren Silverman – who spent the weekend locked in talks at their rental home in the Hamptons – are also working on plans to share custody of their seven-year-old son Adam.
Meanwhile, Simon Cowell, 53, jetted out of Los Angeles on Friday, watching his band One Direction in concert in Las Vegas on Saturday night before heading to Europe, where he will spend the month on board the Slipstream yacht, touring St Tropez.
Simon Cowell is believed to want to give his lover Lauren Silverman space in order to work out her divorce case. If the case is settled somewhat amicably, then it will avoid an ugly court battle, in which Simon Cowell could be dragged into – and any embarrassing secrets exposed.
The New York Post reported that Lauren Silverman, 36, waited until her 10th wedding anniversary to break the news of her affair with Simon Cowell to her husband so the terms of her pre-nup would kick in.
And a source again insisted today that Lauren Silverman tried to “max out her return by stringing things along past the 10 year mark to increase what she would be eligible to receive”.
