In the rare photo of Simon, 62, he had a noticeably bigger cast than in Sofia’s photo, with the bandage reaching his elbow – so fingers crossed his wrist is on the mend now that he’s got more support small.

Simon recently opened up to The sun on the impact his e-bike injuries have had on his physical and mental health. The accident left him with a steel rod through his back after being bedridden for a month at his Malibu home. “I first considered therapy when I broke my back because I was very, very, very, very low,” he told the newspaper. I felt very depressed because I didn’t know how to explain it to Eric. I couldn’t do everything I wanted with him. I didn’t know if I was going to be able to walk again, play football with him.”


Simon looked relaxed despite his injuries

“It was a low point. I was taking a lot of painkillers but I stopped them very quickly. I didn’t want to go down that road,” he continued. “In the end I decided not to go to therapy because I had great doctors, Lauren was amazing and Eric was amazing.

“I always wear a back brace that I have to wear when I go out on my bike, and there are big screws in my back, and that’s for life.”
