Simon Cowell was today sensationally named a 'betrayer' by Alexander Silverman, brother to Lauren Silverman's husband Andrew.
Alexander insisted that the news of Lauren's pregnancy constituted a breach of trust by Cowell, as he had been close friends with both Lauren and millionaire casino owner Andrew.
He told the New York Post: 'It is an unbelievable story of betrayal. It is a sad story and a tragic story.'
Alexander made these comments in reaction to a report that Andrew, his brother, had made the unusual choice to name Cowell as a co-respondent in the divorce papers he filed in the Manhattan Supreme Court two weeks ago, citing adultery as the reason for ending the marriage.
Meanwhile Cowell, who is said to be 'freaked out' by the news he is to become a father for the first time, after sexing his friend’s wife, remained silent as he was quizzed about the baby news, but did not deny the reports.
Close friend say he is under immenses pressure at the moment and has engaged the services of a top L.A lawyer to help handle this crises.
