Simon Cowell had back surgery on Saturday night after a terrible bicycle accident, Page Six said.
The “America’s Got Talent” star, 60, was hospitalized shortly after the accident at her home in Malibu, California.
Sources said he was testing a new electric bicycle in the yard when the accident happened.
“Simon had a broken back and will have surgery tonight,” a Cowell representative confirmed on Saturday night.
“Simon fell off his bicycle on Saturday afternoon while testing his new electric bike in the yard at his home in Malibu with his family,” the representative added.
Cowell has spent some time with girlfriend Lauren Silverman and their 6-year-old son Eric, as well as her 14-year-old son Adam from a previous relationship.
He’s switched to cycling after adopting an exercise regimen that has helped him lose 60 pounds in the past few years.
He recently told Extra: “I think I’ve lost, since I started this diet a year ago, 60 pounds.”
The music mogul said his detention made adhering to his healthy lifestyle much easier, except for the temptations brought by Eric.
“I’m cooking a little. I am exercising. It’s funny, much more during this time, please stick to the diet, ”he said.
