Simon Cowell's partner Lauren Silverman has asked him to stop the dangerous activities
After Simon Cowell broke his back coming off his electric bike he has reluctantly agreed not to ride it again.
Simon is well known for his love of jet-skis, fast cars and quad bikes but he knows he has a son and partner to think of.
This latest accident will see him going through months of rehabilitation after breaking his back in three places.
A close family insider confirmed to The Sun: “Lauren doesn’t want him to ride one of those bikes again, so he’s agreed with his friends and family to get rid of them as soon as he’s out of hospital.
“The power of the bike was unbelievable when he changed the setting up to the second one. The bike just flew into the air.
“Thankfully he let go of the bike as he fell backwards and it didn’t land on him.”
Lauren has reportedly put her foot down about him returning to work too early. The friend added: “The hardest thing is stopping Simon from getting back to work too fast. He never wants to stop.”
“The whole thing was caught on CCTV and the footage is horrific to watch.
“He’d shipped the bike over from the UK to ride on off-road trails in the US. This accident has put him off that idea.”
Simon's friend and BGT fellow judge spoke out about his accident saying "I've not been able to stop thinking about them all," she said. "It's absolutely horrific. We're all devastated and worried about Simon, but the positive thing is that he's in good spirits, and Lauren says that slowly he's on the mend.
"I've got all my fingers and toes crossed that, come the live shows, for Britain's Got Talent we can hopefully have Simon on a live link because we love him."
