Simmons will turn 35 on Sept. 18. Although Simmons didn’t disclose what she plans to do on her special day, she did, however inform her followers in the post that they would be viewing all the action from Sept. 16 to Sept. 20.
She wrote, “Close friends !!! Less than 48 hours more and the list will be closed link in bio Birthday Access Sept 16 thru 20th.” As the upload circulated online, many expressed how celebrities are finding new ways to profit from their fans.
