The source exclusively told MailOnline: ‘Clearly this story is utterly ridiculous and completely pointless – because there was no affair.
‘Simon and Lauren are very happy together as a couple. They have been in lockdown together in LA for more than six weeks now.’
It comes following reports that Lauren had furiously confronted Simon about his friendship with Mel in a series of angry messages.

Simon and Mel had worked together on The X Factor in 2014, and America’s Got Talent in 2016.
A source told The Sun: ‘Simon obviously gets on well with Mel and all his female co-stars, but that’s all there’s ever been to it; absolutely no hint of romance.
‘They were both pretty livid – and mortified – when Lauren accused them of a ridiculous affair which never, ever happened.
‘Things have been resolved now, and everyone is on good speaking terms – but, for a while, it was obviously extremely awkward.’
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Mel B for comment.

It comes after Amanda’s daughter sparked confusion by claiming that Simon and Lauren had split during an Instagram Live.
Amanda, 49, had been reminiscing about the moment she played her charity single to Simon, before going onto mention Lauren, who had sent her pictures of the family cooking.
Speaking to her 1.4 million followers, Amanda said: ‘I did play the album to Simon because Simon was very kind and he invited me to come and sing on Britain’s Got Talent live shows, which I still will do whenever that is.
‘But I thought I’ll take it round and have a cup of tea and see what he thinks, I don’t know why I did that – it was one of the most nerve-wracking things I have ever done in my whole of my life. It was like the opening night of a West End show.
‘I was sat in his lounge; I had some lovely homemade biscuits from Geoff the chef. I don’t think they have a chef in lockdown.
‘In fact, lovely Lauren, Simon’s girlfriend, sent me some lovely pictures of them cooking the other day. Simon’s quite good at cooking, I think.’

Hollie said: ‘I thought they broke up?’
Amanda replied: ‘Simon and Lauren?’ Before Hollie said: ‘Yeah.’
In a panic Amanda replied: ‘Don’t be stupid.’
During the broadcast, Amanda then appeared to nudge her daughter in an attempt to silence her from revealing any more details – with Hollie flinching and letting out a noise indicating she was in pain.
The live took place at Amanda’s home in her lounge and she wore matching floral silk pyjamas to Hollie.

A spokesman for Simon told MailOnline: ‘Simon and Lauren are very much still together and are in lockdown together in California.’
Simon has been isolating in the States along with longterm partner Lauren, their son Eric, six, and Adam, 14, who Lauren’s a mum to from a previous relationship.
The family has been pictured together throughout lockdown – wearing protective masks and going on bike rides to keep fit.
X Factor boss Simon was last pictured on his own during a shopping trip on Sunday.
Simon and New Yorker Lauren started dating in 2013 but the pair still haven’t commented on whether they plan to marry.
Heart presenter Amanda has been celebrating her charity single Somewhere Over The Rainbow topping the iTunes charts, with all proceeds going to the NHS.
The TV star told MailOnline she was excited to tell Simon about her achievement, saying: ‘Simon doesn’t know yet.
‘As soon as LA wakes up I’m going to be straight on the phone to Lauren because Simon doesn’t use a mobile phone.’
A spokesperson for Amanda declined to comment.
