Simon Cowell to Face $50,000 Penalty

Simon CowellSimon Cowell will face a $50,000 penalty if he goes near Lauren Silverman's son Adam.

The 54-year-old music mogul will be subjected to a hefty fee if he is in contact with seven-year-old Adam - whom his girlfriend had with her former husband, Andrew Silverman - due to a clause in the brunette beauty's divorce agreement with property developer Andrew. According to TMZ.com, although the agreement will only last until January 2015 if Lauren - who is currently pregnant with her first child with Simon - violates the clause three times she will lose contact with the child until a court is able to intervene.

The settlement also states that Andrew has a legal obligation not to rubbish Simon - who had an adulterous relationship with Lauren - and must make sure other people don't trash the businessman in the presence of his son. In addition, Lauren and her former spouse both agree that Adam should only refer to either of them as "mother" and "father," and the wealthy real-estate owner agrees to pay Lauren $3,000 a month in child support.

Although Andrew had initially included Simon's name as co-respondent when he filed for divorce from Lauren on the grounds of adultery, they have now changed the cause of divorce to "broken down irretrievably."
