Simon Cowell's ripped physique steals the show at 'America's Got Talent' filming in California
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: At 'America's Got Talent' filming in California on Thursday, Simon Cowell flaunted his muscular biceps, indicating his dedication to fitness. The 63-year-old music mogul, who recently shed over three stone, chose to keep it casual with a distressed white t-shirt and trendy leather Cuban heels, accessorized with a stylish Prada bag. His light-wash jeans and aviator sunglasses completed the look.
Simon has been using a surgical back brace to support his recovery after a bike accident almost paralyzed him in 2020. While the corset may have made his figure appear slimmer, it is unclear whether he was still wearing it when he stepped out this week. Nevertheless, Simon looked sharp and carried a transparent carrying case and a large black leather tote. The businessman had suffered a back injury after falling from an electric bike he was testing at his home in Malibu. After six hours of surgery, he revealed in an interview, "It was a lot worse than people thought. I had a lot of long-term nerve damage as well."

Cowell's E-bike injuries
In January 2022, Cowell, the former American Idol judge, was hospitalized with a broken arm, severe facial wounds, and a possible concussion after a crash on his e-bike. Despite being discharged the same day, this was not his first experience with e-bike injuries. A year and a half prior, Cowell suffered a broken back after testing out a new e-bike in front of his family. After undergoing a six-hour spinal surgery and months of recovery, he bravely decided to take up e-biking again, only to end up with further injuries. He now wears a wrist splint and faces difficulty playing with his children. However, the music mogul insists that he will not give up riding, but will make safety a top priority.
As Cowell shared, “I’ve had some good news. I’ve broken part of my back, and thank God I’m wearing this [a helmet] or it would have been a lot worse. Some good advice: If you buy an electric trail bike, read the manual before you ride it for the first time. I have broken my back in a number of places. It's like the very first time you ski, you expect to fall over, and you do. But it was a sudden jolt. I was in massive pain." Despite the dangers, Cowell remains determined to continue riding his e-bike, but with a newfound emphasis on safety, saying, "I will never, ever ride without a helmet. Ride carefully and read the instructions."
Cowell's slimmed-down look
Cowell, the renowned music mogul, recently arrived in Los Angeles for the latest round of 'America's Got Talent' tryouts looking almost unrecognizable after losing a significant amount of weight. Rumors of him undergoing cosmetic procedures such as fillers and Botox have sparked concerns among his fans and cosmetic surgeons alike. In a recent sighting, Simon was captured donning a dark blue top that hugged his now-slimmer frame, paired with denim and short sleeves that accentuated his toned biceps. He carried a black briefcase and completed his look with matching aviator shades, exuding a professional and business-like vibe. Upon spotting a nearby photographer, the doting father-of-one gestured a peace sign, showcasing his charismatic persona.
