With the public still reeling from news that he was expecting a child with his friend's wife, Simon Cowell went back to work on Thursday to promote X Factor.

Question: who was at his side while he faced the press?

Answer: His ex-fiance Mezghan Hussainy.

Hussainy, who is also Cowell's makeup artist, was on hand at the Television Critics Association panel in Beverly Hills while he addressed television reports alongside his fellow judges. She was also spotted arriving at his Los Angeles home earlier in the day.

"You'd never know if there was any tension from them being engaged to be married and then things being broken off," a source tells PEOPLE. "They get along great."

Meanwhile, Lauren Silverman – who is pregnant with Cowell's child – was across the country in the Hamptons, where she was photographed with her 7-year-old son. She and her estranged husband Andrew Silverman both released statements Thursday asking for privacy as they deal with their divorce. They reportedly had a crisis meeting at their Long Island vacation home on Thursday night.
