Simon Cowell claimed he didn’t want kids because they take up too much time. Too late!

The X Factor judge, 53, is expecting his first child with New York socialite Lauren Silverman, 36, multiple sources confirm to People. Silverman is divorcing Cowell’s friend real estate mogul Andrew Silverman.

Yowza.

Guess things with Carmen Electra didn’t work out. Cowell’s affair with Silverman has been pretty top secret.

Sweet victory

Rihanna has won a court case in Britain against retailer Topshop, which was selling T-shirts bearing her image without permission. High Court Justice Colin Birss ruled in favor of the singer, saying buyers were likely deceived by believing Rihanna had authorized its sale. Birss agreed that the sales caused a loss of control over Rihanna’s rep in the fashion realm; she has a clothing line in her name at a rival store.

Rehab news

Has it been 90 days already? Lindsay Lohan completes her court-ordered rehab Wednesday. The actress will transition into a sober living house on the property for a few days before guest hosting Chelsea Lately Monday. Then she’ll move in with dear old mom Dina in Long Island.

The judge who sent her into treatment earlier this year after she violated probation by lying to police ordered the 27-year-old to attend therapy sessions three times a week for the next 16 months to help avoid relapsing, the Associated Press reports.

And contrary to rumors, Jodie Sweetin is not in rehab, but she does work for a facility in L.A. “The owners said I could stay here as I got things figured out,” the onetime Full House star told TMZ. Sweetin, divorcing husband No. 3 Morty Coyle, has had a history with meth abuse. Her title: clinical logistics coordinator.

Remembering Cory

Lea Michele was photographed in public for the first time since the death of boyfriend Cory Monteith. The 26-year-old was spotted in the passenger seat of a car on Sunday in L.A. with sunglasses and wearing a “Cory” pendant necklace, reports The New York Daily News. It seems Glee cast members have been ordered to stay mum on the topic. Naya Rivera cut short an interview with The Miami Herald when her late costar was brought up. She did say production starts up again Monday.

Support for Leah

Director Paul Haggis congratulates Leah Remini for breaking free of Scientology in an open letter for The Hollywood Reporter. The ex church member praises the actress (who’s penning a tell-all) as “a class act.” A Scientologist spokesperson told THR that Haggis is “status-obsessed” and his letter is “a promotional gimmick.”

Across the pond

The Charles Saatchi and Nigella Lawson marriage is no more. The Guardian reports a judge granted them a divorce Wednesday.

Help wanted

Jeremy Renner wants his dog back, no questions asked. Hemi, one of his two French bulldogs, went missing near his L.A. home. The actor launched a Facebook campaign, offering a $5,000 reward for the neutered male. Renner also set up a hotline, at 310-954-9126 (but don’t crank the poor guy).

    Attack of Sharknado 2: Oh yeah, there’s another one

    The idea of making a movie about a tornado that scoops up thousands of sharks and sends them flying through the air to chomp their way through a bevy of people, places and things sounds totally ridiculous. That didn’t stop Syfy from moving ahead with Sharknado, a movie that became a pop culture phenomenon last year. The mania reached such a fevered level that a sequel, Sharknado 2: The Second One, was ordered. It premieres at 9 p.m. Wednesday on Syfy.
