Bruce Jenner, the “Keeping up with the Kardashians” star, is already living as a woman in his private life. Bruce is yet to confirm or deny the claims that he is undergoing a gender transition, but a source close to him reveals that he has been living as a woman in his private life.
“The former Olympian has been getting very nervous because he is afraid of backlash from his fans,” the source revealed. “Bruce has been wearing women’s clothes and lingerie at home almost full-time now, with sons Brandon and Brody visiting and not having any problem with their dad’s changing appearance.”
Jenner’s sons have been very supportive of him, but he reportedly fears that not everyone will be as supportive as his sons.
“This is a very, very confusing time for Bruce, and he has been living two lives. Bruce just doesn’t think the world is ready to see him wearing the women’s silk shirts that he prefers to wear.”
Apart from his sons, there’s also another person who has his back, and that is none other than his high school sweetheart, Michele Rosenthal. According to reports, Michele says she was taken aback when she heard of Jenner’s alleged transition, but she wishes him the best.
“I would have never thought that in a million years from knowing him in high school. When it came out in the papers that he was thinking of this, I think everyone was shocked,” she says.
“I hope he figures out what it is that he would like for his life. I hope that he finds happiness.”
Jenner is already receiving backlash from some quarters. Dr. Phil McGraw says, at 65, Jenner is too old to make such a change. Dr. Phil says he found Jenner’s transition quite boring and with no point. “You’re almost 80! What’s the point?” Dr. Phil asked.
McGraw blatantly questioned the reasons behind Jenner’s sex change, indicating that he thinks Jenner is too old for sex. “I don’t know. He’s kind of like past prime, for that right?” he joked.
But Dr. Harold Reed, M.D., a leading sex change doctor, disagrees. He has that it is never too late to be happy, adding that his oldest patient is 93 years of age! Dr. Reed even produced a letter of medical clearance from his patient’s doctor saying the transition is possible even at the age of 93, so there’s no wrong age.
Naturally, the most typical age is the 20’s to 40’s. But Dr. Reed, who has performed more than 2,000 gender reassignment surgeries, says there are many patients over 60 years of age who go for reassignment surgeries.
Kimmel also came to Jenner’s defense, saying, “He’s an Olympic Gold Medalist! I wouldn’t put anything past him. He may be a champion in the bed.”
