Simon Cowell, Lauren Silverman buy New York house

New York: TV mogul Simon Cowell and girlfriend Lauren Silverman have reportedly bought a house in Manhattan to raise their child.

Cowell, 54, who has four-month-old son Eric with Silverman, shelled out at least USD 10 million for the new three-bedroom suite on East 78th Street, reportedly..

"They closed on a luxury apartment on the Upper East Side, close to where Silverman`s other son, Adam, 7, lives with his father, Andrew Silverman," a source said.

It is not clear which apartment the couple bought, but a three-bedroom in the building was recently listed for USD 10.8 million.

Cowell and Silverman have been house-hunting for several months. With him recently returning to the judging panel on the UK`s `X Factor`, it is expected the couple plan to divide their time between New York and London.
