Cowell, 54, has been unwinding since the final of Britain’s Got Talent.
The show’s head judge was pictured slipping out of the wrap party in London on Saturday night with a box of cigarettes, a bottle of beer and anti-bad breath chewing gum in his chauffeur-driven car.
The record label boss and his 36-year-old partner dined with Morgan, a former Britain’s Got Talent judge, at an undisclosed location last night.
Cowell is said to have mellowed since Lauren gave birth to their son Eric in February, saying the new arrival has changed his life for the better.
