Kim Kardashian's step-dad Bruce Jenner reportedly wants to become a woman named Brigitte, and finally feels free to do so now he has split from Kris Jenner
He’s been seen with painted nails, has grown his hair
long, and now Bruce
Jenner is reportedly finally ready to come out as a woman.
It’s believed the 65-year-old – who filed for divorce from wife Kris
Jenner after 23 years of marriage in September – wants to be known as
Brigitte and is looking for an opportunity to chat with Oprah Winfrey about his
transformation from male to female.
However, one person who does not approve is his mother
Esther, and it’s the former Olympic athlete’s long hair that upsets her the most.
‘I hate his hair. I tell him it’s ugly. That it’s
ridiculous. I told him on the phone the other day, we were talking about it and
I said, “You know Bruce, you just turned 65 and you’re wearing your hair like a
teenage rebel”. He laughed. He’s always been single-minded and independent,’ she told MailOnline.
The 88-year-old – who had a famously difficult relationship with Bruce’s estranged wife Kris – is happy, however, for him to live his life
however he chooses.
Meanwhile Kim Kardashian’s step-dad has been denying the gossip to his parent.
‘I love him, no matter what. There’s such raunchy
publicity all the time. I don’t know,’ she continued.
‘I’ve brought this up to him on the phone when we’ve talked and he says “mum you can’t believe this stuff”, he said you can’t pay any attention to this
stuff and I said “well I want to tell you one thing Bruce, I don’t care if what
they’re putting out is true or false, it’s not going to change my love for
you”, and it’s true that’s exactly how I feel.’
It’s been reported recently that Bruce IS on the path to becoming a woman though.
A source told Us Magazine: ‘Bruce’s goal is to live as a
woman and look as much like one. [He’s been] struggling for a long time with
his feelings about being a woman inside.’
Apparently his daughters Kylie and Kendall Jenner
are happy to let him do as he wishes, while step-daughter Khloe Kardashian has is ‘symapthetic’ to his needs and in constant touch with him.
