Earlier this season, Simon Cowell had a cast on his hand at the America’s Got Talent judging panel. After months of fan speculation, the talent show mogul has revealed how he sustained the injury.

It’s no secret that Simon Cowell has a history of breaking bones on electronic bikes. Although it was public knowledge that he sustained injuries from yet another accident, the talent show judge has finally revealed the reason he was in a wrist brace on this season of America’s Got Talent.

“Well I fell off my bike and I broke my arm, or my wrist,” he said. “You know me, I’m always breaking bones so just another day on my bike.”

Cowell is happy to share that he’s gotten back on his bike since his second electronic bike accident. No matter how many accidents, Cowell has made it clear that he will continue to ride his bike.

“I love riding my bike and the trouble with bikes is, you fall off,” he said.


Simon Cowell Has a History of Electronic Bike Accidents

For those who may not remember, Cowell’s history with bicycle accidents began in August 2020, when the talent show judge was riding his electric bike in Malibu. Following the accident, Cowell broke his back in several places and had to undergo a six hour surgery. Reportedly, the talent show judge was “a millimeter away from breaking my spine.”

In 2021, Cowell was open on how much his injury changed him as a person. Sources have reported that this injury was ultimately part of the reason he decided to change his stance on marriage.

“Whilst Simon never thought he was the marrying type, he’s realized he’s met the woman of his dreams — and couldn’t be happier,” the source said

In early 2022, Cowell sustained yet another electronic bike injury. Soon after the accident, it was revealed that he broke his wrist and had to wear a cast, then later a wrist brace. At the time, news outlets also reported that he brushed his cheek and may have suffered a concussion. Months after the accident, Cowell also revealed that he wasn’t wearing a helmet during his second accident. Fans hope that Cowell is staying safe on his e-bike.
