Simon Cowell has broken his silence after back surgery following a fall from an electric bike at his home in Malibu.

The “America’s Got Talent” star and “American Idol” vet, 60, addressed the public and worried fans in a tweet on Sunday night.

“Some good advice,” the music mogul started the tweet. “If you buy an electric trail bike, read the manual before you ride it for the first time. I have broken part of my back. Thank you to everyone for your kind messages.”

He followed up his good-humored update with a special note to nurses and doctors who treated him at a hospital in Los Angeles, where he underwent surgery following his fall.

“And a massive thank you to all the nurses and doctors,” Cowell wrote. “Some of the nicest people I have ever met. Stay safe everyone. Simon.”

Cowell broke his back on Saturday afternoon after falling off an electric bike in the courtyard of his Malibu home.

He was rushed to the hospital following the accident, where he underwent surgery.

“It was a long surgery, they had to fuse his bones and implant a rod," a source told Page Six.

Cowell’s buddy Piers Morgan wished his friend well in a tweet on Sunday after news of the accident broke.

“So sorry to hear this,” the former “Piers Morgan LIve” host wrote. “Sounds a very nasty accident. I wish Simon a successful operation and a full & speedy recovery.”
