Montel Williams, 61, was rushed to the hospital in an ambulance on Wednesday after he “overdid it” at the gym. This is according to his spokesperson.
“Anyone who knows Montel knows that he is an exercise enthusiast,” his rep said in a statement on Thursday. “Yesterday, he overdid it, and has been admitted to the hospital out of an abundance of caution. He is doing well and anticipates being discharged soon.”
The former talk show host — who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1999 — is expected to be discharged from the hospital “in the coming days,” his rep said. Williams’ Instagram feed reflects his active lifestyle and buff bod.
“In the coming days, as he always has, Montel will tell his story himself. Until then, we respectfully ask that his family’s privacy be respected,” the statement continued. “The Williams family will be forever grateful for the quick response from [New York City Fire Department] and the excellent care he has received.”
Williams recently posted about his line of cannabidiol capsules that have helped him with his MS struggle.
“I’ve been on a wellness journey since my diagnosis and @LenitivLabs is the culmination of everything I’ve learned about cannaboids along the way,” he wrote.
It is unclear at which New York hospital Williams was admitted.
