Simon Cowell hospitalized after ‘breaking his back’ during bike accident


Simon Cowell was hospitalized on Saturday (August 8, 2020) after falling off his bike at his home in Malibu, California.

The 60-year-old America’s Got Talent judge and producer was “testing his new electric bike in the courtyard at his house in Malibu with his family,” a representative for the star told People, when he suffered a nasty fall.

“Simon has broken his back and will be having surgery this evening,” they explained shortly after the incident occurred. “He hurt his back and was taken to the hospital. He’s doing fine, he’s under observation and is in the best possible hands.”

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Cowell has been spending quality family time with his girlfriend Lauren Silverman, their six-year-old son Eric, and her 14-year-old son Adam from a previous relationship.
