The force behind TV smashes “American Idol,” “America’s Got Talent” and “The X Factor” has another major hit — to his head.
He awoke in the middle of the night and “felt dizzy before attempting to head down stairs for a glass of hot milk and then fainted and tumbled down the flight, a source close to Cowell told the Daily News.”
An ambulance fetched Cowell, 58, wearing a neck brace between 7:30 a.m. and 8 a.m., said reports cited by the Daily News.
“He underwent a CAT scan and does not appear to have a serious injury,” the tabloid said. “After spending a few hours in the hospital, Cowell was released and driven back to his London home where he gave the thumbs up before going inside.”

Everyone: Ah, you get used to that.
