Remember when Simon Cowell had an affair with his best friends wife – and then knocked her up? Apparently he feels pretty torn up about all that, but at the same time…. he doesn’t. In a new interview with the Mirror UK, he talks about becoming a father, stealing his best friends wife, and where his life is now.
On becoming a father:
“In a weird way I probably needed that, I really did. You can start to live a slightly abnormal life and there is no question of doubt I was heading down that path. Too many late-night phone calls. Too obsessed with things.”
On hooking up with his friend’s wife:
“I regret that part. But then of course you have a baby and you look at the baby and you kinda go ‘this is what happened from it.’ In this situation you are not going to come out of this well because of the circumstances. It is not something I am proud of or wanted to happen in terms of hurting anyone. It just happened. You have to deal with it and man up to it. You have to accept the responsibility and the criticism. All I can say is, my advice to you is if it happens to you, you just have to deal with it a day at a time and own up to your responsibilities.”
On how his life has changed:
“My life has changed, but I am probably more focused on what I am doing now than I was a year ago. Maybe because it puts things in perspective having two people in my life who I am responsible for. There were times last year when I would live in two rooms, y’know kitchen and bedroom in your house. It is a weird existence when you live on your own. On the phone all night, blah blah blah. Now the house is full of people, it has become a home rather than a house.”
He still hangs out with his exes though:
“They probably thought I was going to become a different person, but the truth is nothing changed. We are still friends, Sinitta is a godmother, Mezhgan came over recently. Terri was there the other night. Can we all go on holiday on the yacht? Why not.”
You can’t really defend yourself for stealing your best friend’s wife. Can you imagine if that happened to you? You’d see me on the news!
