Simon Cowell has secretly met with Andrew Silverman, the estranged husband of socialite Lauren Silverman, who is reportedly pregnant with Cowell’s baby, asking Silverman to stop criticizing him in public, reports the New York Post’s Page Six.
The television producer met with Andrew Silverman a few weeks ago in an attempt to convince him to remove Cowell’s name from the divorce papers. The meeting ended with the two men shaking hands and agreeing their discussion would stay confidential, the story adds.
The men’s representatives issued a joint statement, saying the report was "completely untrue," the story adds.
Lauren Silverman, who is said to be about 12 weeks pregnant, arrived Wednesday in the south of France to join Cowell on his yacht.
