Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman on the set of The X Factor in L.A. (9/7)
Even though she’s a confirmed gold digger, Simon Cowell’s baby mama Lauren Silverman doesn’t want people to think she’s a gold digger so she’s devised an ingenious plan to actually be photographed with Simon in public. My god. How brilliant. From the :
We hear [Lauren Silverman] begged Cowell to be photographed with her publicly when the duo took a romantic trip to the South of France in August. Silverman, a snitch tells us, wanted to prove the pair are a happy couple and is desperate to shed her gold-digger image.
“Lauren doesn’t like it when you guys write she is a gold-digger, so she got Simon to arrange for all these photos where he appears to be really into her,” said a source close to Cowell. “Haven’t you noticed it has been a PDA overload? It is a sham. It works for Simon, though, as he doesn’t want people thinking he is this playboy who isn’t going to be a good dad.”
Definition of “gold digger” (from merriam-webster.com):
1: one who digs for gold
2: a person who uses charm to extract money or gifts from others (see: Silverman, Lauren; Loeb, Nick; Fed, K)
OK, just so we’re all on the same page, Lauren Silverman trapped her rich husband’s much richer and more famouser best friend with her taco, but we’re to understand that she’s not a gold digger? I guess I’d better fire off a complaint to the Merriam-Webster nerds, because the online definition of gold digger is way off. I sure would like to know what Lauren thinks a gold digger is because for someone who claims not to be one, there sure is a lot of sparkling yellow on her shovel (stand down, Kardashian — I’m talking about ore, not showers).
