Richard Simmons: Internet working out the mystery – CNN International

The Internet loves a good mystery, and theories — and concerns for the beloved Simmons — have abounded.

While his Facebook and Twitter accounts have been pretty active, an Instagram account which links to his website had its last posting, a picture of Simmons at a YouTube event, more than two years ago.

I’m at @YouTube Space #LA today for a live event with Covered California. Tune in! #getcovered #behealthy

A posting in 2014 on his official Facebook page after TMZ speculated about his absence referenced a reported knee injury and assured fans that Simmons would return.

“I am so touched by the outpouring of love and concern I have received today,” the posting read. “I have had a tough time dealing with this injury, as it is keeping me from doing what I truly love to do and that is to teach classes around the world. Make sure you keep Sweatin’!”
