Richard Simmons Forced to Pay Enquirer’s Legal Expenses

September 26, 2017 | celebrity | Lex Jurgen | 0 Comments

Richard Simmons sued the National Enquirer and their satellite outlets last year for claiming he’d become a woman. As per the headline, “He’s Now a Woman!”. Fairly definitive. The June 2016 cover story more than suggested Simmons absence from the public eye was explained by his transition into a full fledged hormonal busty female named Fiona. Minus the castration, which they suggested he was still considering. Reliable insider sources and all.

Simmons sued the National Enquirer claiming defamation over the tranny transition claim, which he insisted was entirely untrue. In deed, if not in spirit. The Enquire published a whole bunch of twisted logic bullshit that kind of stuck:

…it is ironic that Mr. Simmons claims to be an avid supporter of the LGBTQ community while at the same time alleges that he was defamed by The ENQUIRER report that he had transitioned into a female.

The judge in the case agreed with the defense that since trannies are amazingly lauded and beloved figures in modern America, it’s not defamatory to suggest somebody switched genders. Sort of a Catch-22 for the tranny public relations department. You’ve arrived. There goes de facto victim status.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Gregory Keosian agreed to kick the case based on the lack of actionable cause. He insisted that the Plaintiff pay all the legal expenses of the defense since the case never met basic legal standing. The Enquirer used some very expensive attorneys in their preliminary case. Pray for only high six figures, Fiona. Those final eight surgeries are where the real expenses add up.
