Sinitta: 'Lauren has made my best friend extremely happy"

So Macho singer Sinitta is delighted that she and music mogul Simon Cowell will never be subjected to romance rumours again now that he has started a family.

The 45-year-old star who is godmother to his newborn son, Eric, is happy to be friends with the X Factor boss.

Speaking to OK! Magazine, Sinitta said: ''The whole are-we-or-aren't-we thing with Simon and I ... Being a bit stuck or hung-up on each other, but not being able to fully commit to each other and equally not being able to fully move on ... In recent times we've finally been able to do that and him having a baby with Lauren certainly stops the yo-yo situation forever.''

Sinitta also praised Simon's girlfriend and mother of his child Lauren Silverman, saying: ''Lauren has made my best friend extremely happy and he's finally found the woman he truly loves.''

The singer, who dated Simon in the 1980s, also addressed claims that Simon gives her a wage.

She added: ''When I was mentoring [on The X Factor] he paid me the going rate. As godfather he pays towards my children's school fees and he buys us lovely birthday and Christmas presents. He's a generous friend but I earn my own money.''
