Simon and Lauren have made the trip to Barbados many times before for the winter season, and this marks the first since his bike accident in 2020.

His surgery reportedly went for six hours and surgeons had to fuse his bones and implant a rod during the operation.

He showed off the scar from his back surgery during a recent outing.

Simon Cowell Could Remain on Bed Rest for Another Six Months After Spinal Surgery

Simon Cowell is still recovering from spinal surgery after suffering an injury from a biking accident over the summer.

The 61-year-old America’s Got Talent star broke his back in three places and his been resting in bed for most of the last two months.

A source told The Sun that Simon‘s recovery is taking longer than expected and he could be bedridden for up to another six months.

“It’s been a rough few weeks,” a friend told the outlet. “Simon’s a fighter and fairly gung-ho. Naturally, he thought he’d be out of action for a few weeks and then, if not doing iron man contests, at least be back on the showbiz circuit. Instead, he’s had a setback from surgery to fuse two vertebrae and it has proven more complicated than a standard break.”

Simon is currently at home in Malibu with longtime girlfriend Lauren Silverman and their six-year-old son Eric.
