Where the heck has Richard Simmons been? It’s been years since the fitness guru has been seen out in public, and a shocking new report claims it’s because he’s been living a very secret life…as a transgender woman!
Family and friends have reportedly been worried about Richard Simmons, 67, for months, but during that time, he’s been in seclusion, transforming into a woman, according to a bombshell new report. Get the details about his alleged secret life as “Fiona” here!
Richard was photographed in fur-trimmed lingerie, with flowing hair and red lipstick, and the image appears on this week’s National Enquirer cover. “[It’s not] just Richard Simmons in drag,” a source claims. “This is Richard dressed as a softly spoken woman named Fiona.”
The 67-year-old has been MIA for months, and according to the source, that’s because he’s been undergoing his change into Fiona. “He had a boob job and his breasts are like he had been taking hormones to make them grow,” the mag’s insider reports. “He had huge mood swings, too, which we had attributed to hormone therapy.”
And, really, he hasn’t even disappeared completely — he’s actually been out and about as Fiona plenty of times, according to a pal. “He didn’t seem worried about being recognized as Richard Simmons,” one friend admitted.
Richard has not commented on this story yet, but when he was briefly hospitalized over the weekend, he did take to Facebook to let fans know he was okay. “Thank you to everyone who has reached out with love and concern after hearing I was in the hospital,” he wrote. “I was dehydrated and needed some fluids and now I am feeling great!”
Interestingly, he decided to share a close-up shot of himself along with the message, so any evidence of this alleged sex change is not evident. Plus, it could also be a throwback photo, of course.
