Richard Simmons addresses fans in Facebook statement

Simmons has spoken out for the first time in three years to assure fans he is not'missing after he was hospitalized for severe indigestion on Monday

Simmons went on to say that he had "reached out" and hoped his fans would do the same. The former fitness guru hasn't been seen in public since February 2014 and finally made a decision to speak out after being hospitalized for gastrointestinal issues this week.

He also says that "by now you know that I'm not 'missing, ' just a little under the weather". TODAY's Hoda Kotb reports. "I'm sure I will be feeling good and back home in a couple of days".

The report said that there was a vehicle accident earlier in the week in the same area, but it's unlikely that this had anything to do with Simmons' property since the wreck had already been taken care of. It is not always possible for people to solve problems themselves as "sometimes it's [the problems] just bigger than we are". For all we know he'll pop up on Howard Stern's show again one day soon, as if he's never left, and talk Stern into a vigorous aerobics session set to hits like "It's Raining Men". "Hope to see you again soon!" he concluded.

"After a few days of battling severe indigestion and discomfort while eating, we agreed it was best for him to seek treatment", he said.

Prominent reportedly has gained the rights to represent Richard Simmons for endorsement, licensing and merchandising opportunities around the world.

Although Simmons has retreated from the spotlight in recent years, he was thrust back into the public eye with the rise of the extremely popular podcast, Missing Richard Simmons. Amazingly, Simmons decided this was the time to speak up.

'But it is yet to be determined, I would say'.
