Richard Simmons Breaks His Silence About Transition Rumors

By: Annie Scaramuzzino

Following the rumors that Richard Simmons had transitioned and was living as a woman named Fiona, the fitness guru’s rep released a statement denying the reports.

However, given the recent tragedy in Orlando, Simmons himself has taken to Facebook to address the situation.

“Some tabloids have recently falsely reported that I am transitioning,” he wrote in a post yesterday. “In response, I feel compelled to set the record straight and refute these lies. Although I am not transitioning, I have and always will be supportive of those who are going through their journey.”

“We should not lose focus on showing love, strength and compassion to all of the LGBT community during these tragic times,” Simmons continued. “My broken heart and healing thoughts are with the people of Orlando and all other victims of prejudice, bigotry and hate.”
