Simon Cowell breaks his back in a bicycle accident
Simon Cowell has broken his back in an accident with an electric bicycle, his spokesman reports to People.
The record executive and judge of America’s Got Talent and X-Factor was testing his new electric bike on Saturday afternoon when he crashed unhappily. The accident occurred on the patio of his home in Malibu, in front of his family.
The spokesperson initially reported that Cowell had only “hurt” his back, that he was fine and that just for observation he was being kept in hospital. A little later it was reported that his back had been broken and that Cowell would be operated on Saturday evening.
