Actor and TV personality Montel Williams was hospitalized Wednesday as the result of an injury he suffered while working out at a New York City gym, according to TMZ.

After performing a set of dumbbell squats, the former U.S. Marine reportedly felt that something was wrong and checked in for treatment “out of an abundance of caution,”

Williams’ spokesman Jonathan Franks issued a statement on Williams’ injury on social media.

“Anyone who knows Montel knows that he is an exercise enthusiast,” Franks said on Instagram 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.”

Franks told TMZ that because Williams was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1999, they didn’t want to leave anything to chance.

"He's doing well," Franks added. "We just had to cancel a speech and he's extremely unhappy he won't be able to give his speech tomorrow."

The statement continued:

“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 Williams family will be forever grateful for the quick response from (New York City Fire Department) and the excellent care he has received.”

Fans offered their best wishes.

One quipped that Williams’ injury offered the perfect excuse to stay out of shape.
