Pop mogul Simon Cowell has broken his back after falling off an electric bike. The X Factor judge was believed
to be facing surgery after being rushed to hospital in LA last night. The 60-year-old is said to have been on a test-ride
in the courtyard of his Malibu mansion when the accident occurred.
Simon Cowell ‘s representative told People: “Simon has broken his back and will be having surgery this evening.”
They went on: “Simon had a fall from his bike on Saturday afternoon whilst testing his new electric bike in the courtyard at his house in Malibu with his family.
“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.”
Simon’s girlfriend Lauren Silverman was also spotted on her non-electric bicycle in Malibu just hours earlier.
Simon is due to return to America’s Got Talent next week, with the first live show set to air on Tuesday, August 11.
