There is much speculation, which has sometimes even been alleged in high school and college biology and psychology courses, that Curtis was born an intersexual (specifically, that she was born with androgen insensitivity syndrome); but it is unknown whether this is an urban legend or fact. Facts that support the rumor's claim to truth are that Curtis is reported to have undergone mysterious surgeries and "complications" shortly after her birth, her unisex name, and that she has adopted children but not given birth. On the other hand, her mother claimed to have chosen the unisex name before birth, not knowing the sex of her unborn child, and the media had reason to tarnish Leigh and Curtis' reputations at the time of Jamie Lee's birth, since their careers were no longer hugely successful.
