Simon Cowell's ex-girlfriend and close friend Sinitta reportedly admitted that she felt betrayed by him when she heard he was in love with Lauren Silverman.

Contact Music reports that Sinitta was "utterly stunned" when she heard the couple are expecting a baby.

She said, "We knew we were all close friends but I didn't realise he and Lauren were falling in love and, when I found out, I will admit I was taken aback and did feel a sense of betrayal."

"I was completely and utterly stunned. I was in such a daze to the point where I wondered if I was dreaming it."

She added, "He sounded odd, calm, strange, which threw me. I don't mind admitting all sorts of emotions were running around inside me."

"To discover he is going to have a child, only with someone else and they're building this life together... All those crazy things were going through my head and it's not fair and it's not pertinent to Simon and Lauren's situation and I don't have a right to feel that way. But I'm being honest."
