He is on the mend! On Saturday August 8, 2020, Simon Cowell was taken to hospital after falling while testing his new electric bike. If the music producer is taking time to recover from his latter, and he should be operated on in the coming days, it is one of his representatives, who revealed to the American site People: “Simon fell riding his bike on Saturday afternoon as he tested his new electric bike in the yard of his Malibu home with his family. He injured his back and was taken to hospital. He is fine, he is under observation and is in good hands. ”
In recent years, the man who notably formed the groups of One Direction and Fifth Harmony has been regularly seen cycling with his wife and son, near their home in Malibu, California. Indeed, the star has embarked on a healthier diet in recent years in order to lose weight. Result: no less than 27 kilos less! The secret ? The one who has appeared as a judge on America’s Got Talent since 2016 eats white meat, seasonal fruits and vegetables, and exercises regularly. It was in 2017, after falling down the stairs of his home in London that Simon Cowell decided to take charge. Taken to hospital, he later explained that he passed out due to low blood pressure.
Becoming a father was a trigger for the star
Aware that his lifestyle was not healthy – he revealed as he “lived like a vampire”, stayed awake until 8 am every day – Simon Cowell thus vowed to take better care of him. Asked by the Sun at the time, he declared that this famous fall had reminded him that he was not invincible and that he had the responsibility to take control of his health now that he was a father: “Sometimes , we get a reminder that we are not invincible, and that was certainly mine. It was a huge shock. ” Having become the father of a little boy on February 14, 2014, he explained: “I am a dad and I have more responsibilities than ever before.”
