LOS ANGELES– Richard Simmons was reportedly taken to the hospital for bizarre behavior.

TMZ reports that the fitness guru was acting in an unusually strange manner late Friday evening so someone at his home in Hollywood Hills called 911 and paramedics recommended that he should get checked out.

Simmons reportedly agreed to go to the hospital and was taken to Cedars-Sinai.

A few months ago, friends worried that Simmons was being held against his will, but he said that was not true.  He has been out of the public eye for a couple years now,  and says he’s just taking a break from life in the spotlight.
