EXCLUSIVE: Richard Simmons’s Rep Speaks Out About Richard’s Condition, Says He’s Fine
Since 2014, Richard Simmons has been missing from the spotlight and hasn’t been seen. While many have wondered where he went, a new Podcast entitled Missing Richard Simmons has been garnering a lot of attention. Specifically, the Podcast has called into question where Simmons has gone, if he’s being held hostage by his maid, why he vanished, and more.
The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) recently was called to Simmons’s home to do a welfare check, after reportedly being informed that he was being held hostage, and they claimed he was fine.
Regardless, that hasn’t stopped the stories about him and his disappearance from continuing to be a hot topic in the press.
We spoke exclusively to Thomas Estey, Simmons’s representative this morning, to see what he could share with us.
“As I have stated to countless media outlets worldwide, Richard Simmons is fine,” he exclusively shared.
“It’s unfortunate that we live in a world that the truth holds little power and that good news is bad news,” he added.
While the diehard Simmons fans continue to miss him- and likely will continue to question why he suddenly went away- talking, collectively, the LAPD report in conjunction with what Estey is saying, it sounds like Simmons is just choosing to live a life out of the public eye. And, at the end of the day, if that’s the choice he’s making, who are we to judge?
