The friends started dating in the 1980s
The So Macho singer dated Simon, 53, when they met in the 1980s and, following speculation that she once had a termination, Sinitta has confirmed that she was forced to abort Simon‘s child as she was unable to carry a baby to full term.
People are saying I aborted Simon’s baby in 2009 and that he only found out the other day. That’s all lies – I’d never do that to him,’ Sinitta, 49, declares.
It was in the 1980s, not 2009, as by then I was already aware that I couldn’t carry a child full term.
It was a long time ago when we were both young. Simon was very concerned and by my side.
It was very upsetting. It’s such a heartbreaking thing to go through.’
The pair have remained friends, though Sinitta says that they have rarely discussed the abortion.
The singer went on to adopt two children with ex-husband Andy Willner, while Simon is expecting a baby with Lauren Silverman.
But Sinitta confesses that she’s always wanted to be the mother of the X Factor mogul’s children.
I have always admitted I wanted to marry him and have children with him,’ she tells The Sun. ‘Not just because I love him, but because I thought it would be good for him.’
