Simon Cowell Broke His Back on a Stupid E-Bike but is Recovering

I have an idea for you: if you want to ride a bike, just get a normal ten-speed like everyone else. You don’t need a bike with a motor that turns the pedals for you. People who ride e-bikes with motors are more likely to be seriously injured than people who ride regular bikes or even those dumbass electric scooters that companies litter big cities with.

Simon Cowell learned this the hard way as the producer broke his back riding an e-bike, apparently for the first time as Page Six reported a rep for Cowell told the tabloid “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.”

Cowell was in surgery for six hours and is resting, but the information relayed to Page Six sounds like it is going to take him quite a while to fully recover.

“He had to have a big surgery, he’s got a number of breaks and has had to have a metal rod put into his back,” a source told us.

“When he fell off the bike he landed right on his back which broke in a number of places,” noting it “was six-hour surgery overnight on Saturday.”

I’m glad Cowell is okay, relatively, because it lets me say this; that accident was absolute s**t. I had better accidents in my bed when I was three years old. Christopher Reeve had an excellent accident and this isn’t even close. Cowell’s parents should be ashamed they even gave birth to someone who has an accident like that.
