Is Richard Simmons OK or not??
That's what fans wanted to know after friend Mauro Oliveira said once again on this week's episode of the Missing Richard Simmons podcast that the 68-year-old is being held captive by his housekeeper (a claim which Simmons' rep has denied).
Seeing as this is a serious allegation, the LAPD actually took the time to pay the fitness guru a visit. According to TMZ, after a long conversation with Simmons, they determined the Sweatin' To The Oldies star is "of sound mind and perfectly fine."

These kidnapping rumors have been swirling for over two years now, but it seems Simmons honestly just wants to live his life in privacy.
We understand if his friends are concerned, but if the cops are satisfied there's nothing untoward going on, what else do they want??
Does this settle the case for YOU, Perezcious Readers??
