Simon Cowell often seems to be all over the place as the undeclared king of television talent shows. Sadly, the X-Factor, American Idol, and America’s Got Talent host went even further than his typical territory by falling in his London home.
According to The Sun, the English mogul was taken by ambulance on Friday to a hospital in London as a result. At about 8 a.m., he was reportedly transported on a stretcher while wearing a neck brace.
Apparently, Simon took a bad spill down the stairs of his mansion after fainting. The 58-year-old was tested at the hospital and was released later in the day, giving the paparazzi a thumbs up upon returning to home.
This incident happened the day before the X-Factor UK live shows are set to begin. Cowell will reportedly be missing for this part of the competition.
Simon Cowell has long been considered a workaholic who has often been quoted as being saying he’s exhausted due to a packed schedule.
