Slow down, my Simon
Partner makes X Factor fainter rest
SIMON Cowell’s partner Lauren Silverman has ordered him to rest after being left “terribly shocked” by his 999 scare.
The X Factor supremo, 58, was forced to miss last night’s first live show after he fainted and fell down stairs at his London home on Friday morning. Security guards found him out cold.
Lauren, 40, was 4,000 miles away in New York at the time but was back by his side last night.
A source told us yesterday: “Lauren was terribly shocked when she got the call. She is very concerned. Doctors have told
Simon he must rest and
Lauren is making sure that is exactly what he does. It gave her a real scare, as it did everyone.
“She was desperately worried about him, like any partner would be. She went straight to the house and hasn’t left his side. She’s caring for him and really fussing over Simon, making sure he is comfortable, eating regularly and resting.” The music mogul was stretchered out of his London mansion to Chelsea and Westminster hospital in a neck brace at 7.30am after the accident, and was checked for spinal and brain injuries after complaining of back pain.
It is thought he had a dizzy spell as a result of low blood pressure. Our source said: “They’ve run tests and it’s nothing to do with his heart. They think his blood pressure reduced and we need to know why. If you have low blood pressure you can have dizzy spells.” Speaking at his front door on Friday night, Simon said: “I fainted and fell down the stairs.
“I’ve got a bit of concussion but I feel better now.”
Simon, who has a three-year-old son Eric with Lauren, watched The X Factor from home last night but was hoping to be back in his judging seat tonight.
