The couple wanted to reach a settle as quickly as possible, for the sake of their son.

"Lauren and I both love him very much and I’m looking forward to starting a new chapter in our lives."
According to TMZ

Her property mogul husband filed for divorce last month, shortly after the news broke of his wife's infidelity with his close friend.
Simon - whose fortune is estimated at $368million - was cited as a "co-respondent" in the court papers for adultery.
He is currently keeping a low-key profile as he unwinds with his former flame Sinitta, close friend Kelly Bergantz and her sister Jamie, in the French Riviera.
