Lauren Silverman seen on bike ride before Simon Cowell was hospitalised

Lauren Silverman was spotted enjoying a bike ride with her son Eric on the same day her partner, Simon Cowell, was rushed to hospital after falling off an electric bike. 

X Factor boss Simon, 60, was set to undergo surgery on Saturday evening after breaking his back during the accident, his reps confirmed. 

Earlier in the day, his partner Lauren was pictured cycling in Malibu, California with her and Simon’s son Eric, six, trailing behind her with a helmet and face mask on. Her 14-year-old son Adam, from a previous relationship, was also said to be with them. 

Lauren appeared to be in good spirits and smiled as she enjoyed the sunny afternoon cycle, obviously unable to predict Simon would suffer an accident later that day. 

The America’s Got Talent judge was said to have been testing out his new electric bike in the courtyard of his home in Malibu. 

A rep for the TV honcho told People: ‘Simon has broken his back and will be having surgery this evening… 



‘He hurt his back and was taken to the hospital. He’s doing fine, he’s under observation and is in the best possible hands.’  

Simon has been based in California during the coronavirus pandemic with his partner, Lauren Silverman, their son Eric, six, and Lauren’s 14-year-old son Adam from her previous marriage to Andrew Silverman. 

He and Lauren began dating in 2013 and welcomed their son Eric in February 2014. 

But it was recently reported that the TV star wants to sell his £18 million LA mansion for a ‘quieter life’ away from Hollywood’s hustle and bustle. 

A source told The Sun newspaper: ‘Simon absolutely loves this house, and for a while it was his dream home. 

‘But also it holds one too many showbiz memory – now that he has a son and long-term partner, he wants to lead a simpler life and create new memories not revolving around rock n’ roll, TV or parties.  ‘It’s certainly the end of an era – but Simon is excited for a new chapter’.
