Megan Fox and husband Brian Austin Green are expecting another baby. The father is believed to be Simon Cowell.
A war of words has erupted between SIMON COWELL'S baby mama and her estranged husband. Lauren Silverman is supposedly telling friends she's outraged at her estranged husband Andrew saying he was shocked to find out she and Simon were getting horizontal behind his back. Lauren claims that he not only knew what was going on, but that they had a mutual understanding and that he was also fooling around with a number of women on several continents. Photos have also surfaced from last August showing Simon and Lauren sucking face on their yacht while Andrew was on board. In any case, the divorce doesn't seem to be about money, but custody of their 7-year-old son. Andrew wants full custody, but Lauren won't go along with that. Lauren's lawyer says the parties are trying to settle the case on a "private basis," but they can forget about any privacy at this point.
