Richard Simmons is suing American Media for claiming he was transitioning to become a woman.

In his lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, the fitness guru says The National Enquirer and Radar Online knew the story was false but figured Richard would never sue because it would make him appear unsympathetic to transgendered people.

He claims a former associate was selling the stories and that the person has been blackmailing, extorting and stalking him for years. Simmons says the extortion plot led him to retreat from the spotlight.

Kerry and Chris co-starred in the 2007 movie I Think I Love My Wife. The source said, “He was cheating on his wife with Kerry for like six months. Ironically, that’s when they were filming about Chris having fantasies of cheating on his wife.”
