Mum’s the Word in Latest Simon Cowell Headlines

Thanks to Simon Cowell exiting the LA studios of The X Factor last night and refusing to comment on allegations that he has fathered a child with NYC socialite Lauren Silverman, a rash of “Mum” headlines are crossing the wire. Half are from his actual mom, saying he’ll make a great dad; the other pertain to his not-yet-commenting.

At WENN, contactmusic.com and elsewhere, the news is being passed on that Cowell “Keeps Mum.” However, on the same day of Ariel Castro‘s sentencing hearing (!), a TV station website in Cleveland (ABC 5) has stamped this rather unfortunate typo:
