Simon Cowell and married New York socialite Lauren Silverman are reportedly expecting a baby together.

The furious version is juicier, of course, and makes poor Mezhgan look like a psycho ex: "Mezhgan stormed round to the X Factor chief’s £15million Beverly Hills mansion at 3pm on Thursday," the paper wrote, "to confront him after ­he ignored her desperate calls for nearly two days. She demanded to know if he had been seeing married Lauren Silverman during their time together after hearing the 36-year-old was carrying his first child."

Hey, at least it wasn't 3 a.m. Because that's way more psycho. 

On the "thrilled" side of the coin, in a report debunking the one just cited, TMZ said, "Simon told Mezhgan about the baby weeks ago — and she immediately called Lauren, who she's also friends with, to offer her congrats and support ... knowing how stressful the media attention can be." The site even dubbed the situation "refreshing." Ahhh.

And to wrap things up, we simply can't ignore what Cowell himself said about the whole situation during an "X Factor" panel at a TV-industry event in L.A. last week:

"I haven’t read the newspapers," he quipped. "Am I missing anything?"

He later added, "Unfortunately, I have to keep this private."

Good luck with that, Simon.
