Friends of Carmen Electra say the reason she broke up with Simon Cowell at the beginning of this year is because the TV star walked in on Simon with Lauren Silverman.
“Carmen was at Simon's house in L.A. when she literally busted him with Lauren,” the insider told E! News. “Simon called her a friend, but there was nothing platonic about what was going on, if you know what I mean.”
The source added that after discovering the affair Carmen (41), who was once married Jane's Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro, immediately broke things off with Simon and left the scene. “
[Carmen] high-tailed it out of there. There was no way she was going to stick around and be a third wheel,” adds the source.
