Simmons called the report very hurtful. I love all the people who worry about me, Simmons said. But it was time for me to take some time to be by myself.

According to Simmons, he's been keeping in shape despite concern that he might need another knee replacement. In response to speculation he has avoided going out because he has gained weight, Simmons said, I still weigh 150. I work out every day. I have a gym at the house, and I am very healthy. Simmons was last photographed in January 2014 by TMZ. In November 2014, reports of Simmons' knee injury surfaced. Simmons took to Facebook then to thank his fans for their outpouring of love and concern. 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, he wrote. Make sure you keep Sweatin'!
