Fritz and Wolfe had starred on American Pickers since it debuted in 2010, though fans were surprised last July when it was announced he was leaving the show.

Wolfe hasn’t spoken about Fritz’s departure since then, though he acknowledged there has been much speculation about their friendship since then in an Instagram message on Thursday afternoon, which featured a smiling photo of Fritz. 

‘I have been very private in the past year in regards to Franks life and the journey he’s been on,’ Wolfe began.

‘There has been lots of opinions in regards to mine and Frank’s friendship and the show but now is not the time to set the record straight. Now is the time to pray for my friend,’ he added.

‘Frank has suffered a stroke and is in the hospital. Please keep him in your hearts and thoughts,’ Wolfe said, before concluding with a direct message to Fritz.

‘Frank I pray more than anything that you make it through this okay. I love you buddy,’ Wolfe concluded.

American Pickers debuted on History Channel in 2010, following Wolfe, Fritz and their co-worker Danielle Colby-Cushman, who run an antique store in Iowa.

Wolfe and Fritz are seen travelling the country, in search of all sorts of collectibles from collectors of all kind.

It was revealed last June that Fritz was leaving the show, as a culmination of many health problems, including a back surgery and suffering from Crohn’s Disease.

Wolfe released a statement that said Fritz, ‘is like a brother to me,’ adding he will, ‘pray for the very best and all good things for him on the next part of his journey.’

Fritz, however, painted a much different picture in an interview with The Sun.

‘Mike’s statement was bullshit, somebody wrote it out for him. We never were friends in grade school. I don’t believe in ten years he’s said five nice things to me, you know? Unless he was cutting somebody else down and we were both laughing,’ Fritz said.
