Simon Cowell has reportedly vowed to ‘slow down’ and ‘edge into semi-retirement’ as he will take on less work commitments going forward.  

The music mogul, 62, will still appear on his television shows but will be taking more time out to spend with his fiancée Lauren Silverman, 44, and their son, Eric, eight. 

According to The Mirror, Simon will take a ‘less hands on approach’ and ‘working until 3am’ will be a thing of the past.

Speaking to the publication a source detailed: ‘His back injury from the bike accident in 2020 and the pandemic have made him refocus his life and at 62 Simon knows he is not getting any younger.

‘The days of staying up working until 3am and constantly being on his phone trying to make deals are gone forever. 

‘Someone like Simon will find it hard to let go and not work but for him this is like edging into a kind of semi-retirement. He won’t be working every day and will pick and choose his work a lot more going forward.’ 

MailOnline has contacted Simon’s representative for comment.

Simon’s plan to take life at a slower pace comes after he broke his arm in ‘horror’ e-bike accident in London in February. 

The smiling music mogul told MailOnline at the time that he was ‘a bit of a nutter’ while stepping out for a stroll with his fiancée, having narrowly avoided serious injury during the accident, when he wasn’t wearing a helmet. 

Friends claimed Simon, who added he’s ‘feeling better’ since the crash, is ready to give up cycling despite being an enthusiastic rider, given that this is his second biking accident.

As the couple set off for their walk, Simon exclusively told MailOnline: ‘I’m OK. I’m feeling much better thank you. It happened just round the corner.’

After being told that locals had seen him whizzing around the local streets at high speed on a number of occasions before the crash, he admitted: ‘I’m a bit of a nutter. I’ll definitely wear a helmet next time.’ 

In August 2020, Cowell fell off his e-bike in Malibu and had to undergo back surgery.

The media mogul was said to be considering suing the manufacturers, Swindon Powertrain. 

A spokesperson for the star told MailOnline at the time: ‘Simon is understandably extremely concerned for other peoples’ safety in relation to this bike.

‘We have been pressing the manufacturers about this and will continue to press them, including in relation to the claims of the former member of staff.’ 

Simon did not follow through with the legal action and later revealed the ordeal only encouraged him to exercise even more.
