Simon Cowell, a famous entertainment star, is known for being one of the most stringent and critical judges on reality programs that include talent competitions.
When Simon Cowell is not busy judging people on television or working with different musical talents, he enjoys spending time with his family, which comprises of his longtime wife Lauren Silverman and their lovely son Eric.
Because Cowell is of the opinion that children who get a family inheritance do not work as hard to acquire their own wealth, he has made it public knowledge that he does not want to leave his money to Eric when he passes away.
Cowell held the notion that parenthood wasn’t for him in the past, but when he and Lauren had their son Eric in 2014, his perspective has changed significantly.
Even more surprising was the news that Lauren, one of Simon Cowell’s closest friends at the time, was expecting a child while she was still married to Andrew Silverman.
Reportedly, the first time Simon Cowell met Lauren and her now-ex-husband was in 2004, while he was on holiday at the Sandy Lane resort in Barbados. Almost immediately, the three of them forged a bond that would continue to last long after their journey was ended.
Immediately after the news surfaced, her then-husband filed for a “at-fault” divorce, alleging her adultery with Cowell as the sole grounds.
He was given the name Eric and, despite the significant media attention and the early bad headlines, the pair has persevered and is still together today.
The two individuals give off the impression that they are very supportive of one another and have been there for one another through all of the ups and downs in each other’s lives.
Speaking of his son, Simon says, “he is the most amazing thing that has ever taken place in my life. The guy is very dear to me,” though, despite the fact that Cowell has nothing but utmost affection for Eric, he has made the decision not to leave any of his wealth to him in his will.
Cowell said that he was going to give it away, saying, “I’m going to give someone my money; very likely a charitable organization.”
