"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," a source told The Sun. "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," the source added.

It is unclear at this time if Cowell's son, Eric was home at the time. His girlfriend, Lauren Silverman is currently en route from New York to London, PEOPLE reports.
