The model is glad her pal Simon has found happiness

Katie Price reckons Simon Cowell, 54, shouldn’t bothered about falling for Lauren Silverman while she was still married. 

‘People have affairs for all sorts of reasons – because they’re bored, crave taking a risk or want to inject some spice in their life,’ says Now’s outspoken columnist, 35.

‘Some can be short lived, some are secrets taken to the grave and others become the beginnings of a new relationship.

‘My mate Simon Cowell has spoken of his “regret” regarding the media frenzy after he started a romance with Lauren Silverman while she was still married to his former friend Andrew.

Simon says: “It’s not something I’m proud of or wanted to happen in terms of hurting anyone. It just happened.”

‘These things can and do happen – and they’ll continue to happen. But from their own relationship, Simon and Lauren have brought a baby, Eric, into the world. 

‘Many believe life should be lived by the rules set by society but sometimes it just doesn’t happen – people change over time; relationships don’t always continue as they first began. So don’t have any regrets, Simon.

‘Live your own life with your family and don’t worry about what others think!’
