(Newser) – More evidence that Simon Cowell really is expecting a love child with a (presumably former) friend's wife? In divorce papers filed two weeks ago, Andrew Silverman names Cowell as a co-respondent and says the divorce from wife Lauren is based on adultery, the New York Post reports. What exactly does that mean? "It’s really a signal to the spouse who cheated that the wronged spouse is very angry and that it’s going to be a very nasty, scorched-earth, high-profile litigation," says a divorce attorney. Another top attorney agrees that the move is "very nasty," so expect this story to drag on for a while yet.

Lauren "is a total gold digger," one friend tells the Post; another adds that her pregnancy by Cowell "was by design." Contrary to initial reports, she was not estranged from her husband when she started seeing Cowell, friends say; in fact, Andrew had just upgraded her engagement ring with a 10-karat diamond. All the dirty details could end up being aired on the witness stand, as Cowell might be forced to testify. Sources tell the Daily Mail he's hired top LA attorney Marty Singer, and in case you were wondering about his mental state regarding impending fatherhood, he's reportedly "freaked out." Unless you trust the Post's sources more, in which case he's "thrilled."
