Bruce Jenner recently announced [via tabloids, no less] his intention to get a sex change, something that had been rumored for a very, very long time but never confirmed. We saw Bruce Jenner get a divorce from Kris Jenner amid rumors that he wanted a sex change and more freedom, and we slowly saw Bruce’s looks change over the past year. He had his Adam’s Apple shaved down, he grew out his hair, he got lip injections, his facial features grew more feminine, and he started cross-dressing. And throughout it all, Bruce Jenner still refused to publicly confirm the sex change, but the media isn’t stupid – by that point, everyone was onto him.
Now, there have been conflicting reports about how aware or unaware his family was of his desire to receive a transgender sex change. Kris Jenner and Co. claim that they didn’t know until recently, but sources close to the family revealed that Bruce knew for a very, VERY long time – and so did Kris Jenner and the entire family. Kris apparently knew that Bruce struggled with his sexuality from the moment they got married, but she didn’t care. It’s always been obvious that Kris Jenner puts fame first, happiness second – and with Bruce, she didn’t think that him coming out and telling the truth would be beneficial to their family ‘brand’.
Another recent report from TMZ claims that Bruce Jenner actually knew he was transgender at the tender age of five years old, and he just kept his true identity hidden all these years because of societal pressure. In fact, Bruce still hasn’t technically confirmed anything by this point, nor has he revealed the date of his gender reassignment surgery or the female name he’ll take post-surgery. Thus far, it’s just been rampant speculation, even if the speculation is all being navigated by Bruce’s PR people.
