Things are not looking good for Simon Cowell, who suffered a major back injury in August of 2020 when he fell off of an electric bike and broke his back in multiple different places, just missing his spinal cord. The America’s Got Talent star could have been left paralyzed if he had not been immediately transferred into a five-hour-long surgery that resulted in a metal rod being put into his back.
Simon Cowell to be bedridden from spinal surgery for six more months
Simon Cowell, the star and producer of “America’s Got Talent,” is taking longer to heal than expected from spinal surgery after he broke his back in three places this past summer. He is currently on a regimen of very strong painkillers and must remain confined largely to his bed, where he has round-the-clock care by nurses
He’s also required to wear a brace.
Despite initial good news and optimism — his co-star Howie Mandel reporting in August that Cowell was “doing spectacularly well, considering,” and confirming Cowell was already walking around — things have taken a turn for the worse.

Simon Cowell is being looked after at his Malibu spread by his girlfriend Lauren Silverman, the mother of their 6-year-old son Eric.
