The 68-year-old was admitted into a hospital Monday after complaining of stomach problems. He subsequently addressed fans Wednesday for the first time in years, telling them he was fine and not "missing."

Also on Wednesday, the LAPD made a visit to his house, apparently because his housekeeper asked them for help dealing with paparazzi. According to TMZ, they were on hand Thursday to provide a police escort for Simmons as he entered his home.
