Is Richard Simmons Still Alive? What Really Happened To Him?

People who like fitness and know about Richard Simmons can’t help but wonder if he’s still alive in 2022 after he suddenly vanished.

No one from the media or paparazzi has been able to find him in the last eight years. The latest documentary from Fox, Tmz Investigates: What Happened to Richard Simmons?, looks closely at his life before and after he became famous.

So, this is what happened to him.

Who is Richard Simmons?

richard simmonshard Simmons is an American celebrity and public figure who is known for being a fitness fanatic with a lot of personality and passion. He became famous after hosting his own talk show, “The Richard Simmons Show.” He is an unusual superstar. Simmons mostly tries to help people who are overweight lose weight in a healthy way.

He grew up as an overweight child, so he knows all about the problems that come with being overweight. Slimmons, his own gym in Beverly Hills, was made just for people who are overweight. The gym’s creative side caught the attention of the media, and as a result, he became a celebrity.

Is Richard Simmons Still Alive?

Yes, Richard is still alive and well in 2022, but he has been hiding for the past few years.

Harvey Levin, the founder of Tmz, says that the Fitness Guru does leave his house to go shopping or for a walk on the beach, but he has been able to avoid the cameras.

He hasn’t said who he is, but his YouTube channel has made it clear that he’s there by continuing to post fitness class videos after a nearly eight-year break.

He did his last workout at his studio, Slimmons, in 2016. After that, he left the public eye. But he’s doing just fine in 2022.

What Really Happened To Him?

In March 2016, rumours began to spread that his housekeeper was holding him hostage. During an audio appearance on the Today show on March 14, 2016, Simmons denied the rumors. Simmons didn’t tell anyone that the Slimmons Fitness gym closed in November.

In 2017, he went to the hospital because he had severe heartburn. Later, a picture of him with the caption “I’m not “missing,” just a little under the weather” was posted online. But people were quick to say that the photo was taken in 2013.

This made people wonder if that was even Richard. He sued the National Enquirer and Radar Online for making up fake stories that he was changing his gender. But he likes to stay out of the public eye, and no one knows why.

Richard is now 73 years old now.

The documentary dropped on FOX on August 22 at 8/7 C.
