Andrew Silverman was allegedly well aware of his wife Lauren’s relationship with Simon Cowell.

According to TMZ, Lauren Silverman is “outraged” that he is “feigning shock” at pictures of her kissing Simon Cowell on a yacht last year.

The website reports that Lauren Silverman has alleged to close friends that Andrew “knew what was going on the whole time and he was doing the same thing”.

In contrast to Andrew Silverman’s claims, sources close to Lauren told TMZ she alleges she partly got together with Simon Cowell because Andrew “was cavorting around the world and partying with girls on various continents”.

TMZ report Lauren Silverman, 36, states their relationship was a “tactic mutual understanding”, and according to Lauren, her husband “never had a problem with it”.

Andrew Silverman, 37, was also apparently aware that Lauren spoke to Simon Cowell on the telephone “several times a day”, and allegedly also took no issue with her trips to the UK to visit the millionaire music mogul, report the website.

With all parties reportedly wanting a divorce as soon as possible, real estate mogul Andrew Silverman is said to be gunning for sole custody of their child, Adam, seven.

However, Lauren Silverman is unlikely to grant that request, according to TMZ and will “fight tooth and nail to get primary custody”.

In contrast, Andrew Silverman was reported to be so oblivious to the affair, “he recently upgraded Lauren’s engagement ring with a 10-karat diamond”, a friend told The New York Post.

The newspaper reported a “livid” Andrew Silverman named Simon Cowell as a co-respondent in divorce papers, which were filed in Manhattan Supreme Court two weeks ago.

New York is a no-fault divorce state, but Andrew Silverman has filed for a fault divorce based on adultery.

He returned to his $4 million Hamptons home Thursday to “preserve normality” for his seven-year-old son and stayed the night.

But according to reports, the “crisis talks” with wife Lauren did not happen as the former couple decided not to discuss their impending divorce amid a frosty atmosphere.

But far from trying to build bridges, it seems that Andrew and Lauren Silverman had “minimal conversation” as the atmosphere was too frosty.

“Andrew stayed at the house to create some normalcy for their son,” a source told The New York Post.

“There was no talk about the divorce settlement. That is being handled by the lawyers. There was minimal conversation between them. It was done purely for their child.”

According to TMZ, Simon Cowell still has plans to be a financial figure for the child.

“He will gladly provide for the child, and not just financially,” the source said.

“Simon is saying he will be a committed, fully-involved parent and says he wants a big role in raising the child.
In divorce papers filed two weeks ago by her estranged spouse Andrew, Lauren Silverman was accused of being “cruel and inhuman” towards her husband.

Despite the controversy surrounding her, Lauren Silverman looked in good spirits and smiled for the cameras as she made her first public appearance since news of the unplanned pregnancy broke on Wednesday morning.

In an official statement later that day, Lauren Silverman said: “I am committed to sorting things out with Andrew as amicably as possible to ensure the well-being of our son. I would hope for some space and privacy in order to work through this.”

Rupert Murdoch has filed for divorce from Wendi Deng because their marriage has “irretrievably broken down”, his spokesman announced today.

The divorce papers were filed at the New York State Supreme Court.

The News Corp boss and Wendi Deng, married in 1999 aboard a private yacht in New York, have two daughters together, Grace and Chloe.

In 2011, Wendi Deng famously leapt to her husband’s defense to slap a protester who threw a pie at him as British MPs quizzed him over phone-hacking.

Rupert Murdoch, 82, met his Chinese-born third wife in 1997 at a cocktail party in Hong Kong. They were married two years later, weeks after his second divorce.

Wendi Deng, 44, is 38 years younger than the Australian-born media mogul, who is said by Forbes to be worth $9.4 billion.

“I can confirm for the record that Rupert filed in New York State Supreme Court this morning for divorce,” Rupert Murdoch spokesman Steven Rubenstein told AFP news agency on Thursday.

The couple had a pre-nuptial agreement and have held shares in trust for their children.

So our business editor believes the divorce is not likely to lessen the magnate’s grip on his media empire.

Rupert Murdoch, now a US citizen, reportedly paid $1.7 billion in his divorce settlement from his last wife.

Wendi Deng, said to be the daughter of a factory director, was born in 1968 and grew up in the eastern Chinese city of Xuzhou before leaving for the US at 19 to study.

She worked in a Chinese restaurant in California before going on to graduate from Yale University in 1996.

Wendi Deng was later employed by Star TV, News Corp’s Asian satellite-television operation in Hong Kong, where she met Rupert Murdoch during one of his visits.

The divorce filing comes two days before News Corp is to be split into two companies, one for its entertainment assets and the other for its publishing business. Rupert Murdoch is to be chairman of both firms.

His global media portfolio includes the Wall Street Journal, television channels such as Fox News and Sky, and the 20th Century Fox movie studio.

Two years ago, his UK newspaper division became embroiled in a phone-hacking scandal, which led Rupert Murdoch to close one of the titles, the News of the World.

In July 2011, Wendi Deng jumped from her seat during a UK parliamentary hearing to slap a prankster who tried to shove a shaving-cream pie into Rupert Murdoch’s face.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Porsha Williams has reportedly submitted her own divorce papers via her attorney.

Porsha Williams was blindsided earlier this week when she discovered her husband, Kordell Stewart, had filed for divorce without her knowledge.

According to TMZ, Porsha Williams, 31, is seeking two major assets: alimony and the use of their Atlanta mansion.

In Kordell Stewart’s initial filing, the former NFL star had claimed that his wife did not need spousal support.

Conversely, Porsha Williams’ attorney argued that she paused her own career in order to be the wife and mother to Kordell Stewart’s child from a previous relationship that he needed.

“Mrs. Stewart had held off on filing for a divorce herself and remained committed to the marriage because Mr. Stewart promised to work on the marriage with her,” Porsha Williams’ rep told Us Weekly.

But Kordell Stewart’s decision to file for divorce without his wife’s knowing shows no signs that he was dedicated to working on the marriage.

“[Kordell Stewart] misled her and she found out about the filing in the media,” said Porsha Williams’ rep.

“Mrs. Stewart hopes to resolve these personal issues privately with the support of her family, friends and strong faith,” the spokesperson added.

The former NFL quarterback lodged legal papers at Fulton County Superior Court in Georgia on March 22, reports.

Kordell Stewart, 40, who went by the nickname Slash during his days on the field, and Porsha Williams have no children together, although he does have a child from a previous relationship.

Donald Trump has challenged President Barack Obama to release his college records and passport application – and has promised to donate $5 million to a charity of the President’s choice if he does so.

Donald Trump made his offer in a YouTube video released at noon today, two days after promising to make a “gigantic” announcement about Barack Obama which could change the course of the presidential race.

The tycoon previously denied staging a publicity stunt, insisting the announcement is “not a media event”, but instead is “about the United States of America”.

A number of sensational claims about the content of the message had been swirling around the web for three days – one pundit with links to the billionaire even suggested that he was set to unearth divorce papers between Barack Obama and his wife Michelle.

However, the man himself tweeted: “All predictions re: my 12 o’clock release are totally incorrect. Stay tuned!” – and some may be disappointed by the relatively tame nature of the announcement.

Donald Trump set the hare running on Monday by claiming that he was set to make an announcement today that would be “bordering on gigantic” and that it would “possibly” change the presidential race.

But when the announcement finally came, in the form of a YouTube video and accompanying Facebook post, it was somewhat less explosive than promised.

Donald Trump started the announcement by saying: “President Obama is the least transparent President in the history of this country.”

He added: “I’m very honored to have gotten him to release his long-form birth certificate… or whatever it may be.”

The meat of the message ran: “If Barack Obama opens up and gives his college records and applications, and if he gives his passport applications and records, I will give to a charity of his choice – inner-city kids in Chicago, American Cancer Society, AIDS research, anything he wants – a cheque, immediately, for $5 million.”

Donald Trump went on to say that the records had to be released by 5:00 p.m. on October 31, and that his donation would be given within an hour of Barack Obama releasing the records “to my satisfaction, if it’s complete”.

The video concluded: “Mr. President, not only will I be happy – and, by the way, totally satisfied – but the American people will be happy, and those charities will be very, very happy.”

There are a number of conspiracy theories surrounding Barack Obama’s records from his time at Occidental College, Yale University and Harvard Law School.

Most common is the assertion that the future President’s grades were weak, which would undermine his intellectual reputation, but some go further and argue that he might have taken “anti-American” courses or even have attended college as a foreign exchange student.

Donald Trump’s appeal for passport records, meanwhile, appears to be linked to the “birther” conspiracy theory which holds that Barack Obama was not born in the U.S. and in which the businessman has been a leading voice.

The White House has not yet responded to Donald Trump’s offer, and is unlikely to do so.

On Tuesday, Donald Trump defended himself against claims that he was focused more on self-publicizing than serving the American people, as he tweeted: “This is not a media event or about Donald J. Trump – this is about the United States of America.”

The billionaire followed that up with a quotation from Chinese author Sun Tzu reading: “Invincibility lies in the defence; the possibility of victory in the attack.”

Donald Trump told Fox & Friends on Monday that he had “something very, very big concerning the President of the United States”.

“It’s going to be very big. I know one thing – you will cover it in a very big fashion.”

Donald Trump declined to elaborate, but yesterday an investor who appears on the same business talk show as him claimed to have more details.

Douglas Kass, a Florida-based investor who appears on CNBC’s talkshow Squawkbox where Donald Trump is often a commentator, tweeted to his 48,000 followers: “High above the Alps my Gnome has heard that Donald Trump will announce that he has unearthed divorce papers between the Prez and his wife.”

The claims about divorce papers have previously been made in a book released earlier this year by author Ed Klein. The White House rubbished the allegations then and claimed Ed Klein had a history of making things up.

Donald Trump is to claim that he has unearthed divorce papers of Michelle and Barack Obama, according to a respected financial pundit with links to the tycoon.

It is alleged that Donald Trump will claim that the documents show Michelle and Barack Obama were at one point in their two decades of marriage seriously considering splitting up.

When asked about the Tweet, Donald Trump spokeswoman Holly Lorenzo said: “All we know is that he is going to announce it on his Twitter and Facebook accounts tomorrow. I don’t know what time it will be, that’s all I know.”

Interviews with both Douglas Kass and Donald Trump appeared on the show’s website this morning.

Douglas Kass is an author, the founder and President of Seabreeze Partners Management and has also appeared in newspapers including the Wall St Journal and the New York Times.

The claims about divorce papers have previously been made in a book released earlier this year by author Ed Klein. The White House rubbished the allegations then and claimed Ed Klein had a history of making things up.

Donald Trump also has a questionable record when it comes to his own allegations, most notably being a leading “birther”, so-called because he believes Barack Obama was born in Kenya and not Hawaii, thus disqualifying him from being President of the United States.

Donald Trump even claimed to have sent investigators to Hawaii in his failed attempt to prove the theory.

Despite the support of the Tea Party the issue went away when the President released the long form of his birth certificate last year.

Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli’s joint statement to press revealing they had decided to end their marriage appeared like the decision was mutual.

But yesterday Peter Facinelli has filed divorce papers on the same day a new interview was published with Jennie Garth saying she never wanted to split up.

Peter Facinelli cited “irreconcilable differences” in the papers filed at L.A. County Superior Court yesterday.

The actor has made the first steps to end their marriage legally on the very day Jennie Garth has said she “won’t give up on him”.

Speaking to People magazine about the split, Jennie Garth said: “I was very resistant. I didn’t want it to happen.

“He did what he needed to do. I don’t want to walk for him. Or Do I? Of course I wish he had wanted to try harder, try again, try something else.”

At the time of the split earlier this month reports claimed that Peter Facinelli was having an affair although the pair strongly denied that there was a third party involved branding the claims “hurtful”.

But there’s no doubt that the split took its toll on Jennie Garth who said she was shocked when her husband told her their marriage was over.

While Jennie Garth admits that the couple had been in counseling several times and also reveals that there was “jealously” within the relationship the split hit her hard.

Jennie Garth told People magazine: “You get the rug pulled from under you.”

The actress added: “I would take the girls to school, then go back and get into bed and not get up again until it was time to pick them up from school, and I had to pretend everything was fine.”

After Peter Facinelli told Jennie Garth he wanted a divorce there didn’t seem a right time to reveal the news – the pair kept the information to themselves until it became too much to bear.

In the end, Jennie Garth told the magazine, she couldn’t face telling the children herself and left Peter and her therapist to break the news to their three daughters Luca Bella, 14, Lola Ray, 9, and Fiona Eve, 5.

“I just held them. They cried. I cried. It was really hard,” Jennie Garth explained.

Jennie Garth met Peter Facinelli while filming An Unfinished Affair in 1996 and the couple had Luca Bella the following year.

Earlier this week Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli were seen taking their daughters out on a shopping trip – but the awkward situation was obvious given their body language.

After five years together, Jennie Garth and Peter Facinelli married and went on to have two more daughters.

This is Jennie Garth’s second marriage to end in divorce – from 1994 to 1996 the actress was married to Daniel Clark.

 

German supermodel Heidi Klum and London-born crooner Seal are to file for divorce after six years of marriage, according to reports.

Heidi Klum, 38, and Seal, 48, will apparently file divorce papers in the LA County Superior Court early next week, TMZ reported.

According to TMZ, Heidi Klum will cite “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split.

The reports have shocked fans of the couple who often make public displays of affection at red carpet events, and are a picture of happiness with their four children.

Heidi Klum, Seal or their management are yet to comment on the reports.

They were last seen together on December 27, with Heidi Klum tweeting a picture of her and her husband smiling against the backdrop of mountains in Aspen, Colorado.

Heidi Klum and Seal met in 2004 while she was pregnant with her daughter Leni, now seven, with Italian businessman Flavio Briatore.

Seal was present for Leni’s birth and later adopted her.

He proposed on December 23, 2004, in an igloo he had built on a glacier in Whistler, British Columbia.

Seal and Heidi Klum married on the beach on May 10, 2005 in Mexico, near Seal’s home on Mexico’s Costa Careyes.

They have three children, Henry, six, Johan, five, and Lou, two.

Heidi Klum and seal are famous for renewing their vows every year on their anniversary in a lavish ceremony.

In 2010, Seal gushed about the tradition.

“Each year, Heidi and I get remarried,” Seal said.

“It’s a great party, but for about an hour, we go off on our own down to a private beach. We sit there with the kids and read vows to each other as the sun sets. It’s a very special moment to us.”

Splitting up their assets may prove to be a lengthy process.

According to Forbes, Heidi Klum raked in $20 million last year. It’s unclear how much Seal made.

Heidi Klum was previously married to stylist Ric Pipino in 1997, but the couple divorced in 2002.

Seal was spotted arriving at LAX yesterday morning, after promoting his new album in London.

Heidi Klum attended the Golden Globes alone on Sunday.
