Simon Cowell is certainly one of the greatest television stars to ever hit the screen, first coming to prominence on a large scale in the early 2000s with his co-starring role on American idol. Cowell has done many shows and has also served as an executive producer, but that doesn’t mean he’s infallible for tragedies and other mishaps.
Simon fans know that he recently had a serious accident on an e-bike. The reality TV show host even broke his spine in several places and had to undergo extensive surgery on it so that he could walk again.
Page six says there is a new photo that clearly shows Simon’s scars. According to the outlet, Simon was spotted on a yacht in Barbados this week, just a few months after the bicycle accident that left him almost paralyzed. Page six says that Simon bit his back in not one but three places.
Simon reportedly had to undergo a six-hour surgical procedure in which doctors nearly cut his spinal cord. The experience made Simon almost in a wheelchair, but he managed to get better with a rigorous exercise routine, including walking 10,000 steps a day coupled with frequent swimming sessions.
The American Idol star is reportedly considering filing a lawsuit against the e-bike manufacturer, Swind. Sources previously explained how Simon was injured while showing off the bike to some of his children.
Insiders said the e-bike manufacturer was more than aware of the dangers of their product, but they never bothered to show Simon how to drive the vehicle which is said to be able to travel 60 miles per hour.
In other words, the e-bike is not just any e-bike; it has a lot of power and torque, and it’s supposedly very easy for someone to get hurt on it if they don’t know what they’re doing. As for his role in the hit series, America’s Got Talent, Howie Mandel said earlier this year that Simon would be back on the show in no time.
