Raw Story claims Richard Simmons is suing the National Enquirer and Radar Online for claiming he is transitioning from a man to a woman. The Enquirer allegedly posted a headline that read ”He’s Now A Woman.” The tabloids also claim he was living as a woman named Fiona.
The Enquirer says; ”Richard Simmons’ lawsuit is ironic … since he claims to support LGBTQ rights, and is now claiming he was defamed by its story he was transitioning to a woman. What’s really ironic is … Simmons said exactly that in his lawsuit — that the Enquirer was gambling he wouldn’t sue because it would make it seem like he thinks there’s something wrong with people who transition. We stand by our reporting about Mr. Simmons, and intend to vigorously defend this lawsuit and win public vindication of our reports.”
