The truth about Si­mon


I was as shocked as any­one when I heard the news that Si­mon had been taken to hos­pi­tal. By then, Si­mon’s part­ner Lauren (Sil­ver­man) was al­ready on a flight back from New York. We man­aged to get her on the phone and she im­me­di­ately brought us up to date with what hap­pened.

He did take a fall. He did faint, and he’s cur­rently un­der­go­ing tests. I think it’s come as a shock to Si­mon, as he him­self ad­mits, ‘It has been a wake-up call.’ He needs to look at his life, his work­load, and try putting fam­ily above work.

It’s well-known that he has vi­ta­min in­jec­tions, drinks spinach smooth­ies for break­fast and works out ev­ery day. But noth­ing works bet­ter than good old-fash­ioned sleep.

Ever since he first went to the US for Amer­i­can Idol, Si­mon has worked through the night, some­times till 4 or 5am. Yes, he does sleep late in the morn­ing, but a lack of sleep takes its toll over the years.

Our mum, Julie, was al­ways wor­ried about his health and des­per­ately tried to get him to ease off. Ba­si­cally, he’s a worka­holic. I know he won’t stop, but he can slow down. He has to for the sake of his son, Eric.
