AceShowbiz - Simon Cowell is currently on the mend after being rushed to a hospital in London following another terrifying electric bike accident. The "America's Got Talent" judge is reported to be "absolutely fine."
"He fell off his bike and broke his arm. He's absolutely fine," a source confirmed to PEOPLE on Tuesday, February 1. The insider also added that the 62-year-old music mogul is already back at home.
A separate source informed The Sun that Simon "is lucky to be alive" after he was propelled over the handlebars and onto the road at 20mph while not wearing a helmet. "The X Factor" judge was rushed to hospital with a suspected concussion and a broken arm.
"He was pedaling along, with his electric motor on, when the wheels suddenly went from under him after hitting a wet patch," the informant detailed. "He slipped and went flying over the handlebars into the middle of the road."
The so-called inside source went on saying, "Stupidly, Simon wasn't wearing a helmet, and blood was pouring from his face. He looked like something from 'Phantom of the Opera'." The insider added, "Three kindly passers-by jumped into action, and stopped the traffic so he wouldn't be run over."
"After being ambulanced to hospital and given an X-ray, Simon was eventually released that evening. His arm in a yellow cast all the way up to the shoulder. He was told to rest," the source explained further. "Despite this being his second great escape, Simon insists he's not ditching the bike but he will start wearing a helmet."
This was not the first time Simon has been hospitalized for an accident involving an electric bike. In August 2020, the "American Idol" judge underwent surgery after he fell while testing out a bike in the courtyard of his Malibu, California home.
"He hurt his back and was taken to the hospital. He's doing fine, he's under observation and is in the best possible hands," Simon's rep explained at the time. A metal rod was inserted in his back during six hours of surgery.
