Is Caitlyn Jenner regretting her decision to transition from a man to a woman? New rumors are surfacing about the gold medal Olympian, and fans want to know if Caitlyn will go back to being Bruce Jenner in the near future.
According to the Dishh, author Ian Halperin, the man who literally wrote the book on the Kardashians, titled, “Kardashian Dynasty: The Controversial Rise of America’s Royal Family,” he has multiple sources revealing that Caitlyn Jenner isn’t happy living as a woman and may want to revert to her old life as Bruce Jenner.
“One source confirmed to me Caitlyn has made whispers of ‘sex change regret,’ hinting she might go back to being Bruce Jenner. It hasn’t been easy for Caitlyn, it’s been very hard. She’s thrilled she has raised awareness about how transgender people have long been discriminated against but I think there’s a chance she’ll de-transition in the next couple years. I don’t think it would surprise anybody in her inner circle. It has been much harder than she anticipated. My heart goes out to her and I know her true friends will be there to support her on whatever path she chooses.”
What doesn’t make sense is that Caitlyn Jenner waited for so long to finally become the woman she always wanted to be. As Bruce Jenner, Caitlyn was forced to keep secrets and bury feelings for decades, but as Caitlyn, she is free to live as the person she’s always felt she’s been inside. Jenner also told her family members that she was completely sure she wanted to transition before having any surgery and also spoke with a therapist about her decision to do so. Wouldn’t she have been 100 percent sure before transitioning? Not necessarily.
The feeling, known as sex change regret, is not as uncommon as many would think. There are a lot of resources online about men and woman who have transitioned into the opposite sex, only to want to revert back to their original gender.
However, Caitlyn Jenner’s rep has slammed the initial reports of Cait wanting to de-transition and go back to living life as Bruce Jenner. The rep claims that rumors and reports are not true.
“Not worth commenting on such an idiotic report. Of course it’s not true.”
Since her transition last year, Caitlyn has been a champion for transgender rights and has done a lot of work in the community, much of which has been documented on her reality TV series, I Am Cait. Jenner reportedly would still fight for those same rights even if she de-transitioned back to Bruce Jenner.
After the media circus that surrounded Caitlyn Jenner before, during, and after her transition, it seems that a de-transition would be even crazier for Cait, who has already been the subject of so much media scrutiny. Perhaps she’ll address the rumors and reports on an upcoming episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians or I Am Cait.
Meanwhile, Caitlyn’s daughter, Kylie Jenner, is going through a rough time as well. The teenager and her boyfriend, Tyga, have reportedly split, and it’s getting ugly. Kylie and Tyga are not on speaking terms, and rumors that the rapper has already moved on to a new woman have surfaced. Jenner is also allegedly scared that Tyga could possibly spill Kardashian/Jenner family secrets in the form of a book or his music, as he’s been on the inside for a lot of family drama since beginning to date Kylie. He was even there for Caitlyn’s transition, so he likely knows much about how the family really reacted to their dad’s sex change.
What are your thoughts on the rumors that Caitlyn Jenner is unhappy and may go back to living as Bruce Jenner?
