The fact that he’s fathering his friend’s ex-wife’s baby is strange enough, but now it seems Simon Cowell's secret relationship with Lauren Silverman is what ended his romance with Carmen Electra.

According to an insider, the “Baywatch” babe caught Cowell and Silverman in the throes of passion and never looked back.

"Carmen was at Simon's house in L.A. when she literally busted him with Lauren. Simon called her a friend, but there was nothing platonic about what was going on, if you know what I mean. [Carmen] high-tailed it out of there … There was no way she was going to stick around and be a third wheel."

However, Ms. Electra sounded much more affable during a recent interview. "I'm so happy for him! I obviously think that his child will be very well taken care and very, very loved. I want to know if it's a boy or a girl. It's awesome, I'm super happy for him."
