“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.
Something has just happened ..half miracle, half nightmare! #WakeMeUpIWantToGetOff!!

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.”
