Richard Simmons Denies Rumors He's Transitioning

Richard Simmons is speaking out in a statement to deny rumors that he is transitioning to a woman.

Reports have been surfacing after the 67-year-old former fitness guru was hospitalized recently for dehydration.

“Some tabloids have recently falsely reported that I am transitioning. In response, I feel compelled to set the record straight and refute these lies,” Richard wrote in a statement on Facebook. “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. My broken heart and healing thoughts are with the people of Orlando and all other victims of prejudice, bigotry and hate.”
