Simon Cowell has undergone surgery after having an accident involving an electric bike. The America’s Got Talent creator is said to have broken his back when trying out a new electric bike at his home in Malibu, California.
A rep released a statement saying that Cowell, 60, is “doing fine.” Cowell’s spokesperson said: “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 hospital. He’s doing fine, he’s under observation and is in the best possible hands.”
Cowell will be skipping America’s Got Talent‘s first two live shows this week as he recovers from surgery. Cowell will be MIA during AGT‘s inaugural live episodes on Tuesday Aug. 11 and Wednesday Aug. 12.
Cowell and his his partner Lauren Silverman have a six-year-old son named Eric together.
