Simon Cowell ‘lied’ about quitting cigarrettes before baby birth

Simon Cowell has said that he “lied” when he claimed he’d give up cigarettes when his first baby is born early next year.

The music mogul and X Factor boss had previously gone on record implying he would quit smoking when Lauren Silverman gave birth – but now he says he’ll simply designate a room in house specifically for sneaking a cigarette.

Telling People that electronic alternatives “don’t work” for him, he said bluntly of his previous promise: “I lied.”

He added:

“There are a lot of boring things that happen when you have a baby. [You have to get rid of] sharp edges, cigarettes, alcohol… then there’s [baby-proofing] the toilet. But I’ll have a smoking room!”

He also said that Silverman is getting pretty hands-on in terms of contributing ideas to The X Factor USA.

“She is really interested [in The X Factor]. We work on some ideas together and it is good,” he said.

“She really gets into the song choices. She came up with a very good idea for [one of my acts] Alex & Sierra, which I think they might do next week.”
