Simon Cowell fell down a flight of stairs at his London home early Friday and was rushed to the hospital, TMZ reports. Sources say the former American Idol judge woke up in the middle of the night and was dizzy; as he was trying to get to the kitchen for milk, he fainted and fell down the stairs. Doctors performed a CAT scan and other tests, sources say. The Sun reports that Cowell returned home Friday afternoon and gave a thumbs-up as he arrived. (More Simon Cowell stories.)
