Simon Cowell was stretchered out of his London house in a neck brace after falling down the stairs. Cowell was taken to hospital in an ambulance after the accident between 7:30 and 8.30 AM London time today.
According to reports, it is not known if his partner Lauren or his son Eric were at home at the time of the accident. While Cowell is currently in hospital undergoing tests at the hospital, his injuries are not believed to be serious.
A representative for Cowell said that he fainted and then fell.
“It’s been a scary morning,” the rep told The Sun, which first reported the news. “It was very early and Simon was going down his stairs to get some hot milk because he couldn’t sleep.”
The rep added: “He fainted and is thought to have fallen down the stairs.”
Cowell remained in the hospital Friday afternoon but was in stable condition. A source says Cowell is undergoing tests but is concerned about Saturday night’s live X Factor show on ITV and may have to pull out.
