Rumors are swirling.
Just days after Richard Simmons‘ brief hospitalization due to dehydration, word has surfaced that the fitness guru has already begun sex reassignment surgery. National Enquirer is reporting that the 67-year-old has always felt there is a woman “trapped inside of him” as a source tells the publication that Simmons “had a boob job, and his breasts are like he had been taking hormones to make them grow.”
However, a rep for Simmons denies those claims, telling Gossip Cop that the report is “complete fabrication” and simply “not true.”
In March, Simmons was rumored to have been kept a prisoner in his own home by his housekeeper. Simmons, who has been away from the public eye for the past two years, later refuted those allegations, explaining, “No one is holding me in my house as a hostage.”
“I wanted to be a little bit of a longer for a while,” he told Today’s Savannah Guthrie in a phone interview. “I just sort of want to take care of me. I just really don’t want to do anything. I just don’t want to be traveling anymore. It certainly has taken its toll on me.”
The police since backed up Simmons and claimed he’s doing fine.
