Simon Cowell’s ex-girlfriend, Sinitta, opens up after hearing baby news: Felt ‘a sense of betrayal’

sinitta-at-caudwell-children-butterfly-ball-pic-getty-862563722“X Factor” mentor and former singer Sinitta, tells Hello! magazine that she was “shocked” after hearing Simon Cowell, 53, was expecting a baby with Lauren Silverman, 36. “I was completely and utterly stunned. I was in such a daze, to the point where I wondered if I was dreaming it.

When she found out the news in the middle of the night, she made her disappointment known on Twitter.



She dated both Cowell and Brad Pitt in the 1980s. The 49-year-old admits, “We knew we were all close friends but I didn’t realize he and Lauren were falling in love and, when I found out, I will admit I was taken aback and did feel a sense of betrayal. I suppose there has been a certain amount of comfort for me in my not having a child with Simon as he never wanted to have children. That’s who he was. You accepted it. Then to discover that he is going to have a child, only with someone else and they’re building this life together. … All those crazy things were going through my head and it’s not fair and it’s not pertinent to Simon and Lauren’s situation and I don’t have a right to feel that way. But I’m being honest.”
