The Web site ran an e-mail from a reader who claimed the Paris impersonator has performed in Canadian bars under the name "Tess Tickle." The reader goes on to say, "she grew her hair out and went on hormones and began to look amazing."
TMZ spoke with Reid today, who squarely denies she was ever a drag queen -- or, more fundamentally -- a man. Reid says she's been to one drag bar in her life, Lucky Cheng's in New York.
Reid, who was boarding a plane when we contacted her, said she would send up pictures of her as a baby and a 10-year-old to debunk the rumor. If we get the photos, you can judge for yourself.
