Simon Cowell was rushed to a hospital this morning after falling down a staircase at his London home.

The former American Idol host is believed to be in “stable condition.”

A source close to Cowell 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. He fainted and is thought to have fallen down the stairs. An ambulance was called and he was stretchered out of the house in a neck brace surrounded by worried aides.”

Cowell apparently spent his Thursday night at a Little Mix concert, a British pop group. The girl band became popular thanks to the X Factor, the British TV talent show hosted by Cowell.

The 58-year-old does have a history of health concerns. Most recently this summer, when he couldn’t judge a round of X Factor auditions due to an unknown condition. And in 2012, Cowell said he was “paralyzed with tiredness” and his “immune system was failing” after taking on many TV roles in both England and America.

Get well soon, Simon. In the meantime, here’s a video to remind us all why wearing a plain white v-neck is a major power move.
