Female Impersonator Sues Simon Cowell

A female impersonator who claims he was portrayed as a transvestite on Britain's Got Talent wants Simon Cowell and other producers of the U.K.-based reality show to pay up for defaming him.

Philip Grimmer made it to the semifinals of the show with a tribute to Madonna. He says he was made a laughingstock by Cowell when he appeared on the show last December and that producers made it appear to audiences that he is gay.

"I'm a female impersonator, that's what I put on my application.," Grimmer told The Sun. "It's my niche, I'm not gay or a transvestite."

A producer for Britain's Got Talent's production company says the show's executives are unaware of any pending suit.
