A spokesman for weight-loss guru Richard Simmons has denied rumors that he's transitioning.

The National Enquirer featured Simmons on its cover under the headline: “He's now a woman!” “Why she's the new Caitlyn Jenner,” the tabloid added in a bullet point.

“It's not true,” Tom Estey told People.com.

“He is not transitioning into a woman. He has decided to live quietly the last few years. He had knee surgery a few years ago and has a bum knee. He is still on Twitter and Facebook and works behind the scenes continuing to inspire and motivate people to lose weight. When he decides to come back, he will come back.”

Simmons' absence from the public spotlight has fueled numerous rumors.

“He just needs a break,” Estey said of the 67-year-old Simmons.

In a Facebook post, Simmons said that he was felling “great” after a recent trip to the hospital: “Thank you to everyone who has reached out with love and concern after learning I was in the hospital. I was dehydrated and needed some fluids and now I am feeling great! Summer is here – drink plenty of liquids. Big hugs and kisses for caring.”
