Simon Cowell Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell has never been one to stay silent, but for once The X Factor judge is watching his words. Cowell evaded questions at the Television Critics Association on Thursdayregarding the news that he impregnated his friend Andrew Silverman's wife Lauren.

He later explained to People that this is a matter he'd like to keep private for now. "There are a lot of things I will eventually clear up when the time is right, but I really have to be sensitive because there's a lot of people's feelings involved here," Cowell said.
