Richard Simmons is sorry if he set off some alarms.

The aerobics icon is apologizing to fans after confusion arose about his well-being over a March 18 message he wrote about health that said he’s “dying.”

“Sorry many of you have gotten upset about my message today,” the Simmons wrote on X (formerly known as Twitter) March 18. “Even the press has gotten in touch with me. I am not dying.”

Instead, Simmons said his original message was “about saying how we should embrace every day that we have” and apologized for the confusion, signing off with, “Love, Richard.”
