alexis houston sitting Matt Lauer's fake mistress Alexis Houston was a man?Matt Lauer did not sleep with that woman, er, man, um, person.

Confused? So are we. Alexis Houston, formerly known as Wellington Houston, is a singer who allegedly claimed to be related to  Whitney Houston.

She recently held a press conference with attorney Gloria Allred to squelch the rumored sexual affair with Matt Lauer. Of course, Rachel Uchitel and Gloria also denied her affair with Tiger Woods and we all know how that turned out. But here comes the best part. Alexis is a transsexual and was born a man, the NY Post reports.

Whitney Houston once sued the male version named Wellington (whose original name was Stuart) in 1996 because he was claiming to be her cousin. Whitney alleged that Wellington used her name to defraud an elderly New York doctor of $100,000 using credit cards and forged checks.

]]>The NY Post reports that Wellington allegedly had sex-change surgery three years ago after a male lover coughed up for the trans op. OK, this is just too weird for words. Check out her website and listen to her songs. How on earth did Matt’s name even get in the same sentence as this person?
