Now before we go on, lets just say ‘from the off’ that neither Bruce nor a member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan has said ANYTHING about this yet, so let’s all calm down a little before we work ourselves into a tizzy over all of this.
After months of speculation, it’s been reportedly ‘confirmed’ that Bruce Jenner will be transitioning to life as a woman.
According to the bastions of truth at People Magazine, a source close to the family confirmed that the former Olympian and star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians was now looking forward to living life as a woman, and that the family are right behind him.
“Bruce is transitioning to a woman,” said the elusive source, “He is finally happy and his family is accepting of what he’s doing. He’s in such a great space. That’s why it’s the perfect time to do something like this.”
“He has come out to those closest to him”.
As we reported earlier this week, Bruce’s new docu-series will explore his new ‘journey’ – and according to another source (jeez, how many are there?) it will focus on his progression through transition:
“It will air when he is ready to be open about his transition, butt he’s acting more and more confident and seems very happy.”
The remarkably candid source went on to say that: “It is an intense thing. Of course not everyone is 100 percent on board. Different people have different reactions. But everybody loves him.”
“He’s being very smart about and also respectful about his transition. Instead of completely shocking everyone, his changes have been subtle, and his family has had the chance to slowly get used to his new looks and life.”
Well, if this is all true – then go you, Bruce – we’d all be right behind you. However, before we throw Bruce a massive party and send a hamper of treats, shouldn’t we all wait a minute before we start sending our congratulations? Shouldn’t these sort of things come direct from the horse’s mouth?
Of course, Kim Kardashian‘s comments on telly last week have only added fuel to the fire of speculation.
Speaking on ET, the little-known reality star said of the recent stories about her step-father: “I think Bruce is very happy, the happiest I’ve ever seen him…He’s our dad so we support him no matter what, and I think when the time is right, he’ll talk about whatever he wants to talk about.”
Oh Kim, you’re so cryptic.
But according to the magazine, the family want Bruce – who was married to Kris Jenner for 23 years - to tell his story in his own time, and that hopefully he’ll be able to inspire others with it:
“The family is really giving this space and time to Bruce. This is his story and they want him to tell the world the way he wants,” the source close to the family says. “They really want to empower him to tell his story so that hopefully he can help other people too. That’s the goal.”
Well Bruce, regardless of whether all of this is true or not, we think you’re a pretty cool person – you keep doing you, boo.
