On Thursday (November 30), Simu took to his Instagram Story to share the unfortunate news.

“For those who were looking forward to seeing me, know that I was equally looking forward to be a part of your holidays,” he wrote, per People. “The health of myself and my family are of paramount importance to me.”

The Barbie actor added, “after some health scares I’ve made the difficult decision to stay at home. Something tells me this isn’t the last you’ve seen of me at Candlelight though… let’s all keep fingers crossed for 2024!”
