Simon Cowell talks about a terrible accident for the first time. ‘I almost shattered my spine’

Simon Cowell spoke honestly about the terrible accident he fell off his bike at his Malibu home last August.

X-factor and British fresh talent star Simon, 61, broke his back in three places and had to undergo emergency surgery after the accident.

After months of recovery, Simon has now stepped back and recently witnessed a walk in London with his partner Lauren Silverman and son Eric.

Now, speaking of the traumatic accident, he said, “My spine was almost shattered!”

On the American TV show Extra, Simon said, “First things could have been a lot worse. When I looked at the x-ray, I would have literally been unable to walk because I almost shattered my spine!

“When I woke up that day – you shouldn’t move – and it was really, really sudden and painful, and at the moment that happened, I knew I had broken my back.

“I saw their faces, so I thought,’I have to go home because I can’t lie there’. You shouldn’t have gotten up, and I moved to my bedroom at the end of the house. And I’m lying there, I’m a bit fainting and it was just surreal.”

When he appeared on the show, he beckoned to host Terri Seymour and said: “Actually, you and Lauren were out of the hospital all night. I remember.”

British Got Talent star Simon said he broke his back as soon as the accident happened.

Simon handed over his partner Lauren, 43, for the support and care she provided for his recovery.

“She was really great.” “Both she and Eric were like my support. I got closer because I couldn’t stand without them.”

Simon, who recently sent Amanda Holden a fun 50th birthday gift, admitted that he was “ashamed” to be discharged from the hospital: “I couldn’t walk so it was too embarrassing to come home and see around 100 people. And I put this metal rod and all these screws on my back and told Lauren. ‘I don’t know how to explain to him. [Eric]’.

Simon said the incident made the bond with partner Lauren and their son Eric stronger.

“And she definitely said something to him because he came in and came in and went when I was in bed. I thought’Dad you’re like an iron man,’ but I thought it was the sweetest thing and I thought it meant a lot.”

Simon also confessed that the most difficult thing he found about his recovery was “helplessness.” He said: “You know, I’ve never been in a situation like this in my life where you literally can’t move and the pain likes charts and everything else. But you have to take a positive attitude.

“I promised myself that I would be healthier than before I had an accident.”
