Simon Cowell is at home recovering after he was hospitalized following a crash on his electric bicycle last week, Fox News Digital has confirmed.

The accident occurred last Thursday near his home in West London as the “America’s Got Talent” judge, 62, was riding his bike when he “crashed to the ground” and “broke his arm.”

A source told Fox News Digital that Cowell is “doing well and is healing at home.”

Per TMZ, citing sources, the accident occurred when Cowell “turned a sharp corner” on a road that was wet. The tires reportedly “went out from under him, and he crashed to the ground.” 

Meanwhile, a report from The Sun indicated that the music and TV executive is “lucky to be alive” since he was thrown from the bike after riding around 20 mph without a helmet. 

“He was pedaling along, with his electric motor on, when the wheels suddenly went from under him after hitting a wet patch,” an insider told The Sun on Monday night.

“He slipped and went flying over the handlebars into the middle of the road,” the source maintained, adding that Cowell was bleeding profusely from his face and likened the bloody mess to “something from Phantom of the Opera.” The outlet reported that in addition to suffering a broken arm, Cowell was rushed to the hospital with a “suspected concussion.”
