Simon Cowell was in surgery for nearly six hours on Saturday after breaking his back in a horrible bike crash.
Sources told Page Six that the “America’s Got Talent” star is now recovering at his Malibu, California, home following the accident.
A source said: “It was a long surgery, they had to fuse his bones and implant a rod.
“But thank goodness he’s going to be okay and will have a few months of recovery.”
Cowell, 60, was rushed to hospital after falling straight on his back as he tested out a new electric bike in the courtyard of his home, the source added.
“Simon has broken his back and will be having surgery this evening,” a rep for Cowell confirmed on Saturday night.
“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,” the rep added.
Cowell has spent lockdown with his girlfriend Lauren Silverman and their 6-year-old son Eric, as well as her 14-year-old son Adam from a previous relationship.
He turned to biking after embracing a get-fit regimen that saw him lose 60 pounds over the past few years.
He recently told Extra: “I think I have dropped, since I started this diet a year ago, 60 pounds.”
