Simon Cowell was taken to the hospital early Friday morning after he fainted and fell down the stairs at his London home, according to media reports.

According to People, the “America’s Got Talent” judge and “American Idol” alum was seen wearing a neck brace and was loaded into a stretcher early Friday morning.

While Cowell’s spokesperson has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment, the rep told The Sun, “It’s been a scary morning. It was very early and Simon was going down his stairs to get some hot milk because he couldn’t sleep.”

The rep added, “He fainted and is thought to have fallen down the stairs.”

According to People, the 58-year-old stayed in the hospital Friday afternoon but was in stable condition.

It is unclear if Cowell will still be able to tape Saturday’s live broadcast of the British reality-competition series “X Factor.”

The television personality was named one of the most influential people in the world by Time in 2004 and 2010.

In the past, he also served as a judge on “Pop Idol” and “Britain’s Got Talent.”

He is represented by Syco and WME.
