Flamboyant 1980s TV fitness guru Richard Simmons has been hospitalised in California for “severe indigestion” according to US reports.
“After a few days of battling severe indigestion and discomfort while eating, we agreed it was best for him to seek treatment,” spokesperson Michael Catalano said.
Simmons, 68, has been out of the public eye since 2014 which led to a popular podcast Missing Richard Simmons with wild theories about possibly being held against his will by his housekeeper.
Earlier this month, however, Simmons signed a merchandising deal after the podcast brought his story back into the public eye.
He is expected to make a full recovery, according to his spokesperson.
