Reports have emerged that Simon Cowell has been rushed to hospital following an accident in his London home.
According to The Sun, the X Factor UK and America’s Got Talent mogul was seen being stretchered out of his million-dollar mansion in a neck brace early this morning.
The 58-year-old is believed to have fainted and fallen down the stairs after fetching a cup of hot milk.
A source close to Cowell said: “It’s been a scary morning. It was very early and Simon was going down his stairs to get some hot milk because he couldn’t sleep.
“He fainted and is thought to have fallen down the stairs.
“An ambulance was called and he was stretchered out of the house in a neck brace surrounded by worried aides.”
It is unclear if his son Eric was at the home at the time. However, the former American Idol judge was in stable condition as he underwent tests in and has since returned to his London home and is resting.
The 58-year-old experienced health problems earlier this year when he was forced to pull out of X Factor's London auditions. He has previously talked about the stress of his TV work and his gruelling travel schedule.
