People reported later Friday that Cowell had been released from the hospital. He was photographed giving a thumbs0up to cameras when he returned home.
“I’ve got a bit of concussion. I feel better now,” he said, thanking fans for their support.
Cowell isn’t sure if he’ll be well enough to tape the “X Factor” on Saturday.
“I will be back, but I don’t know about tomorrow,” he said.
