Simon Cowell, former “American Idol” judge, was spotted wearing a yellow cast on his left arm after a motorbike accident. Cowell was contemplating giving up his hobby as this was his second crash just in under last 2 years.

The 62-year-old media mogul said, “I’m bit of a nutter,” as reported by Daily Mail, Wednesday. “I’ll definitely wear a helmet next time,” he went on to add.

This accident seemed to have happened just around the corner from his house in London. “I’m feeling much better, thank you” he said and assured the photographer that he was “OK” while walking with Lauren Silverman, his new fiancé.

He was pedaling along, with his electric motor on, when the wheels suddenly went from under him after hitting a wet patch,” an insider told The Sun, which was first to report the news Monday. “He slipped and went flying over the handlebars into the middle of the road.”


The X Factor star was hospitalized last Thursday after he “slipped off” and fell from his electric bike and is now recovering well, as reported by the source.

It seems that Simon Cowell’s days without a helmet are over.
