“He had to have a big surgery, he’s got a number of breaks and has had to have a metal rod put into his back,” a source told us.

“When he fell off the bike he landed right on his back which broke in a number of places,” noting it “was six-hour surgery overnight on Saturday.”

Cowell was at home in LA with his girlfriend, Lauren Silverman, their 6-year-old son, Eric, and her 14-year-old son, Adam, trying out an electric bike.

The source said Cowell was “outside in the courtyard in Malibu with Eric and Adam trying this new bike” when he fell flat on his back.

“He was in shock and in massive amounts of pain.

“Lauren went with him to the hospital and has been allowed in briefly to see him. He’s doing OK in the circumstances,” the source continued.

Lauren stayed at the hospital for the night, a source noted.

The caustic television personality addressed his accident in a tweet Sunday night.

“Some good advice… If you buy an electric trail bike, read the manual before you ride it for the first time,” Cowell wrote. “I have broken part of my back. Thank you to everyone for your kind messages.”

Cowell has spent lockdown with Lauren and the kids.

He turned to biking after embracing a get-fit regimen that saw him lose 60 pounds over the past few years.

He recently told Extra: “I think I have dropped, since I started this diet a year ago, 60 pounds.”

  14. Simon Cowell is a liberal pedophile dickhead he got what he deserves finally karma is catching up to him

    • If we all got what we deserved we would be heading for hell …not a good place. We are only justified by the blood of Jesus the Christ…

    • You are really an ass just prove what you wrote and said if its wrong about Simon may God have mercy on your soul

    • catherine siderakis

      only disgruntled people will kick a person when they are down. you sir, and I use that term loosely are a despicable and disgusting piece of flotsam….go back to the hole you crawled out of and leave decent humans alone.

  15. Get well fast Simon, just take it easy and do what the Drs. Tell you! Trust in the Master!

  16. Simon, you have helped so many reach their goals and dreams, it’s only fair and right that God will heal you so you can continue to be a guiding light for those that need your help to reach their goals. The Boy scout motto from my childhood was “always do your best”, DYB, I have had three back surgeries in my lifetime, so I know your pain, but we’ve reached 78, so you have a bit to catch up to me, I wish you my best thoughts of a complete and speedy recovery, just DYB and know there are many who are rooting for you.
    Sincerely Michael Hoffman, Florida

  17. I don’t know what qualifies you to judge talent.What on earth have you done in show business, you’re a joke

    • catherine siderakis

      you have done nothing to qualify your taking up space on this earth….I can tell that just by your remarks about a giving man such as Simon Cowell who endeavors to make life for others a little better. follow your counterpart mike (from 4 remarks back ) into the hole he crawled out of.

  18. my gosh Robet and Mike the poor man has just had a traumatic experience why on earth would you say such things?
    Simon, Please ignore these two idoiots for their comments. The entire world does not see you this way. Praying for a quick healing and recovery for you. Thank you for America’s got talent and the other countries that have it under their names; very enjoyable. Thank you for taking interest in those who come and perform on these shows that appeal to your sense of expertise in the music industry. So sorry you’re going through this right now but just know there is a reason for it (though you may not know what it is and it’s not Karma… there is a reason for all things that happen). God will reveal the purpose in His timing. God bless and listen to and obey your dr’s lol

  19. Hoping you have a speedy recovery. So sorry for your injury and pain. Prayers and God bless.

  20. Praying for a smooth recovery!

  21. Simon,
    I love your shows, and the talent that you expose to the people. It is a blessing for us all! My dad had back problems, but was able to live all right in spite of them. Rest well, and do not let the jealous nasties get you down.
    With love and prayers,

  22. my very best wishes for a speedy recovery Simon Cowell…. we miss you on AGT… my prayers are with you

  27. a dam shame you survived you arrogant vile piece of shit

  28. I feel for you Simon. I also have had back surgery many years ago and it took me three years just to get the strength back in my back. On another note though, this pas winter I had to major accidents on my pedal bicycle that left me laid-up for months. I haven’t ridden my mountain bike for the last six months, and just now felt confident enough to get back on it to continue my exercise program.

    If you bones are that easily broken then you have more problems than just falling off a bike. Have you been diagnosed with Osteoporosis by any chance?
