- Simon Cowell broke his back two years ago.
- He was involved in a second crash earlier this year which resulted in a broken arm.
- The reality TV judge said he was “officially bonkers” for putting his life in danger.
Even after two life-threatening accidents, Simon Cowell couldn’t give up his habit of riding an e-bike without a helmet.
In a media interview, the music mogul replied, “Not yet, but I will,” when asked if he wore protective gear while riding his motorcycle.
The reality TV judge said he was ‘officially insane’ for putting his life in danger after he broke his spine in three places in a biking accident.
“I need to be healthy and I don’t like to walk,” Cowell explained of his decision not to wear a helmet. “I’m on it literally every day. I am exercising.
“I reduced it, let’s put it that way,” he added. “Everything in moderation.”
Two years ago, while biking outside his Malibu estate, Cowell broke his back and needed six-hour surgery to reconstruct his spine.
Then he was involved in a second crash earlier this year which resulted in a broken arm.
