Over the weekend it was reported that fitness mogul Richard Simmons was being held captive in his home by some of his staff members, including a maid who has worked for him for years.
Since then, Richardm’s rep has shut down the rumours saying that the icon is simply taking a break from the public eye.
According to People magazine, Tom Estey, Richards rep, says, “As I have stated in the past, these claims are untrue and preposterous. Richard, after 40 years of being in the spotlight, is now simply taking a break from the public eye and working behind the scenes to continue to help those millions of people worldwide in need of his assistance and on several projects to be announced soon.”
The rumour started because Richard has not been seen in two years and his latest Instagram photo is from 112 weeks ago.
