Simon Cowell undergoes a six hour surgery after cycle accident

Following an accident on his electric bike on Saturday, it has been revealed that Simon Cowell was in surgery for six hours on Saturday.

Sources have revealed Simon is now in “recovery and asleep.”

“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 the New York Post.

“When he fell off the bike he landed right on his back which broke in a number of places,”

Simon enjoyed cycling around his Malibu neighbourhood

The surgery took place on Saturday evening and Simon will now have a period of recovery ahead of him.

Sharing further details of Simon’s nasty accident, a source said: “Simon 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.

Two weeks make a huge difference in what may seem impossible or slow today. Much love to you from me in New Hampshire.💕

  64. Mr Cowell, I was so dad to hear of your accident. Please listen to the dr. If you have to go to physical therapy, as you say “it will be bloody hell”.
    I too had back surgery, and had hardware put in. I will tell you this, you will be able to tell when the weather changes from hot to cold, and you will know when it will rain. My husband thought I was crazy, but the dr told him I would be able to tell the changes. My back hurts like hell. Take care of your self, you are in my prayers.

  68. Get well soon Simon and look after yourself. Hey all the help you need. My mum (64) fractured her T12 3 years ago and had literally been diagnosed with dementia the year before and it sent her dementia downhill rapidly and now she’s forgotten how to walk and has to live in a nursing home as it was so hard for Dad and I to look after her at home. Which we still would should the facilities and adaptions to the house be affordable. We’ve not seen her for 21 weeks due to lockdown and would give anything to go in and hug her but COVID-19 rules won’t allow it.

    Please take time to recover your health is so important and your family.

    Lots of love
