. The last we checked, Cowell made about £50 million a year, so it seemed odd that he would somehow pay more than he earns towards child support. A little digging and it emerges that the gaffe is a multiplication mess-up: the fact is that Cowell is likely to pay £3 million a year until his love child turns 21, putting his full pay-out (over 21 long years) at £63 million. This is, of course, only after taking legal and financial advice over the “messy” situation, so nothing is set in stone yet. With Andrew Silverman alleging adultery and ex-wife Lauren hoping for a wedding ring from Simon (that will be far more valuable over time), one would think Cowell feels cornered at the moment. But millionaires deal with “messy” situations in the most amazing ways and, from what we hear, Simon has shimmied off to St. Tropez for a month-long sojourn! Perhaps France will help him forget this freaky business.
