49-year-old Sinitta dated music mogul Simon on and off for 20 years, but they never managed to make it work. She's now said to be distraught and stunned that Simon will be starting a family with someone else.
The news follows allegations that Simon had an affair with his best friend Andrew Silverman's wife Lauren. Reports suggest that Andrew filed papers in the Manhattan Supreme Court two weeks ago, naming Cowell as a co-respondent and citing adultery as the main reason for ending his marriage.
Sinitta posted this cryptic Tweet two days before news of Simon's love child emerged. Perhaps suggesting she knew the news was about to break...

The rest of Simon's circle of close female friends, including former flames Mezhgan Hussainy, Terri Seymour and Jackie St Clair, seem equally unimpressed with his big baby news according to reports.
A friend close to Simon told the Daily Mail, "Simon is in no doubt the child is his. The other girls can't believe that she is the one who has [got his baby]. They've all met her, they know who she is and they have been reduced to tears by this.
"She has apparently been going around telling people for the last three to six months that she is going to have his baby. In the harem hierarchy, Lauren is regarded as the fun, party girl. Simon is [said to be] freaked out by this but there is no question that he will not support the child."
