With an emotional Insta-Post the moderator announced on Tuesday that he has been struggling with health problems for weeks and is currently in the hospital.
An unusual sight: none Make-up, with puffy eyes and in a hospital gown, Riccardo Simonelli reported from the hospital on Tuesday.
The influencer has been suffering from health problems for weeks and therefore has to be treated regularly by doctors, as the 28-year-old announced in an emotional Instagram post.
Usually the entertainer is known for his posh manner – and for his interest in unusual looks and fashion accessories.
That's what it's about
It is a shock for many fans: The otherwise so prepared presenter Riccardo Simonetti is in the hospital.
The 28-year-old announced this on Instagram on Tuesday and said that he was struggling with serious health problems.
Now the influencer seems to be feeling a little better again – he can go home to his family over the holidays.
Riccardo Simonetti (28) is known for his funny and open manner. The entertainer regularly posts private insights from his everyday life on Instagram, thus amusing his 326,000 followers. In the past few weeks, however, it has been quiet about the influencer. He barely spoke up on Instagram. Now it is finally clear why.
The 28-year-old is in the hospital. To a photo that Riccardo posted on Tuesday and on which he looks sadly into the camera in a hospital gown and mask, he writes: “All I wish for Christmas is that I will be happy and healthy again.” But what happened?
«Exhausting and scary»
The entertainer explains: «The truth is, I had a couple of health problems that I had to deal with that were not without it and that took care of them that I spent most of the time at the doctor or in the hospital. The whole thing was not only physically challenging, but also scary. ”
Riccardo leaves open what exactly he is suffering from. However, he makes it clear that his hospital stay has nothing to do with the corona virus. “In this whole pandemic you read so much about Corona that you almost forget that there are other things that can put you out of action,” said the 28-year-old.
«My very personal Christmas present»
In his emotional post he explains why he kept the truth about his health a secret from his fans for so long: “Since I didn't know how long I would feel like this, I thought it was best to do it all for myself to keep », says Riccardo. He did not intend to discuss any of it at all. «I wanted to go back to normal as soon as I felt better. But then I thought to myself – why not show if you are not feeling well? »
The good news is: Riccardo already seems to be doing better. He concludes: “That my treatment was successfully completed so shortly before Christmas and that I can spend the holidays with my family at home is my very own Christmas present and I can't tell you how grateful I am for it. »
