So, Lauren Silverman and Simon Cowell are having a baby apparently.

Who saw that coming? Not The X Factor judge, a new report claims.

The 53-year-old was completely blindsided by the news that his good friend’s wife was pregnant with his baby, according to the New York Daily News.

“The pregnancy took him by surprise. He assumed she was using birth control,” a source said. “Simon thought it was a casual relationship. Friends with benefits."

"The pregnancy was not planned. He is feeling tricked. No question Simon will want to be part of the baby’s life, but I’m not so sure he wants to be part of Lauren’s.”

The New York socialite is "around 10 weeks along," an insider shares.

Silverman, 36, is married to Andrew Silverman, a real estate mogul in New York and a close friend of Simon, 53, but they have been estranged.

She reportedly plans to leave her husband to be with Cowell.

"Lauren and Andrew have been unhappy in their marriage for some time, and their divorce has been in the works for a while," a source dished.

"As their marriage deteriorated, she and Simon became close."

Simon Cowell has often egged on contestants to do better... but this is ridiculous!

On last night's Britain's Got Talent finale, Richard and Adam Johnson took to the stage for a version of “The Impossible Dream" when a viola player named Natalie Holt sprung from her spot, ran in front of the brothers and fired eggs at the famous judge.

And the crazy incident was caught on camera! Watch it take place around the two-minute mark now:

Simon Cowell has more important things to worry about than your thoughts on his sexuality.

To wit: Who will be joining Demi Lovato as a judge on The X Factor this fall? And how can he stop that show from sucking?

So when asked by Great Britain's Radio Times about rumors that he's gay, the TV and music producer gave a classic, Cowell-like response: No, but think whatever the heck you want!

"I couldn't care less because it's nothing to be ashamed of," Cowell said. "It feels like such an antiquated question now. If I was living 200 years ago in a coal mine, maybe, but I work in possibly the gayest industry in the world."

Nothing is official yet, but Simon Cowell made it clear in an interview this week:

He'd love to have Demi Lovato back as an X Factor panelist.

“I liked having Demi on the show," producer Simon Cowell said Monday on Ryan Seacrest's radio show. "She’s fun to work with."

Of course, even if/when Lovato does return, L.A. Reid and Britney Spears have departed as panelists, while it's impossible to believe Khloe Kardashian will return as co-host.

Simon Cowell often comes across as gruff as a judge on The X Factor, and we really have no idea why:

He's dating Carmen Electra!

Cowell confirmed this long-gestating rumor yesterday in an interview with good friend Ryan Seacrest, stopping short of referring to the former Playboy centerfold as his "girlfriend," but admitting:

"We're people who date. She's adorable, isn't she?"

If Rihanna can find time to stop Tweeting photos of herself pantsless, Simon Cowell may have a job for her.

With L.A. Reid announcing his departure from The X Factor, at least one spot on next season's judging table will be vacant - and The Sun says Cowell hopes it can be filled by Rihanna.

"Simon is a huge admirer of Rihanna and knows she’s star quality," a source tells the newspaper. "As well as bringing an aura to the panel thanks to her current standing in music, she is also feisty and will make great TV. Simon loves these sort of characters.”

Rihanna is a Barbados native and Cowell often vacations there around the holidays, the insider adds. Expect a meeting to take place over the next few weeks.

But should it? Do you think Rihanna would make a strong X Factor judge?

With Nicki Minaj taking the Twitter fight to Steven Tyler, another random music feud has now cropped up.

Following Depeche Mode's Martin Gore recently telling Music Week that "somebody should shoot" Simon Cowell, The X Factor judge has fired back in a series of online digs.

Cool Simon Cowell

"I read Martin gore wants to shoot me," Simon Tweeted yesterday. "He is in depeche mode. Do you realise how weird and stupid that makes you. Go and watch the news."

Cowell was referencing the Aurora Colorado shooting in his response, along with other recent incidents involving gun use.

A few days prior to their season premieres, the rivalry between The Voice and The X Factor is growing seriously intense.

First, the NBC competition announced it would air a special Wednesday installment next week, a programming decision clearly aimed at hurting the opening edition of The X Factor Season 2, which kicks off September 12.

Simon Cowell's response? Citing a "gentleman's agreement" between programs, he blasted the move as "cynical, cold-hearted" and an "unprofessional way of doing business."

The X Factor Team

Going off to TMZ, Cowell said this is a "dirty" last second trick by NBC and added that one of his new judges will be especially angry over the counter-programming.

"Britney's not going to appreciate the fact that Christina - who has been a bit of a rival - isn't allowing Britney to have a night of her own."

Why does Simon think The Voice is going up against The X Factor's premier? Because it's scared, of course.

"The reason they've done this is they don't want people to see X Factor because they've heard how good the series is. They don't want their audience to see Britney Spears. They don't want their audience to see Demi Lovato."

Ummm... of course NBC doesn't want its audience to watch a Fox program. Not exactly breaking news there, Simon.

Which of these competitions will you tune in for next week?

Fox has one question for viewers: Are you ready?

During last night's American Idol finale, the network aired its first promo for season two of The X Factor. It included, of course, shots of the show's two new judges: Britney Spears and Demi Lovato. It also featured a cackling Simon Cowell asking folks, what the heck was I thinking?

We have no idea, as neither Britney nor Demi seem like ideal choices for a live competition that involves banter, quick wit and the ability to actually critique others. But, hey, we'll be happy to be proven wrong.

Watch the trailer now:
