Simon Cowell, music mogul and judge on "America's Got Talent," reportedly fell down stairs after fainting.

The Associated Press says the 58-year-old, a former judge on "American Idol," was transported by medics to the hospital after the fall at his London, England home. A neck brace was put on him when medics arrived.

After spending "a few hours" in the hospital, Cowell was released and is expected to recover, according to TMZ.

Cowell has a live "X Factor UK" event slated for Saturday, but it's not clear whether he will be well enough to attend.
