Simon Cowell back home from hospital after fall in London
LONDON — Entertainment mogul Simon Cowell was briefly hospitalized Friday after a fall at his London home.
The Sun newspaper reported that Cowell was taken from his house on a stretcher and wearing a neck brace on Friday morning. It said the 58-year-old TV presenter is thought to have fainted and fallen down the stairs.
Cowell was photographed giving a thumbs-up sign as he returned to his west London home on Friday afternoon wearing tracksuit bottoms and a dark sweater.
His representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Cowell, creator of “America’s Got Talent,” is due to appear as a judge on the new series of U.K. TV talent show “The X Factor” on Saturday.
He told the Daily Mirror he had “a bit of concussion” but was feeling better, adding: “I will be back, but I don’t know about tomorrow.”
