Simon has had a host of glamorous girlfriends since his rise to fame made him a household name.
He dated singer Sinitta in the 80s after they met through the music industry.
They have had a famous “on off” relationship for years and even now remain firm, but platonic friends!
Simon was then linked with English television host Terri Seymour from 2002 to 2008. Again, they have remained close friends since they split and frequently meet with their families.
Simon was engaged to make-up artist Mezhgan Hussainy from 2010 to 2011 after they met on American Idol.
In a “tell all” biography by Tom Bower, Simon admitted to a brief liason with fellow X Factor Judge, Dannii Minogue.
In 2013, Simon allegedly began dating an American woman named Lauren Silverman, the wife of Simon’s friend, Andrew Silverman. The Silverman’s filed for divorce and shortly after it was widely reported that Lauren and Simon were expecting a baby together. Simon subsequently confirmed that Lauren was pregnant with his child, and she gave birth to their son on Eric on February 14, 2014.
Eric has been following in his dad’s footsteps by already launching a single (Baby Shark in 2018) and writing a book called Wishfits due for release in 2021.
Simon, Lauren and Eric split their time between homes in London and Los Angeles.
They share their homes with four furry friends! Yorkshire Terrier rescues Sqiddly and Diddly joined the family in 2013. Simon took on his mum’s Yorkie, Freddy after her sad passing. Most recently, Simon and Lauren adopted Daisy, a rescue pup from Barbados.
