Simon Cowell's personal life became the factor at the Television Critics Association conference in Los Angeles. The "X Factor" and "American Idol" creator is embroiled in his friends' divorce proceedings. Court documents cite Cowell as a co-respondent in a divorce complaint filed by Andrew Silverman against his estranged wife, Lauren. The reasons for the break up are cited as acts of adultery by the defendant, Lauren, and well as cruel and inhuman treatment. It has been reported that Cowell is expecting a child with her. Reacting to questions about his impending fatherhood, Cowell deflected with a joke and then cited privacy concerns, by saying: "Unfortunately, I have to keep this for the moment private, it's just one of those things. There are a lot of things I will eventually clear up when the time is right, but I really have to be sensitive because there's a lot of people's feelings involved."
