Bruce Jenner, the 1976 Olympic Decathlon gold medal champion best known to today's generation of TV viewers as Kim Kardashian's now-former stepfather and co-star of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians reality TV show, has long been rumored to harbor desires to undergo gender reassignment and live out the remainder of his life as a woman.
While those rumors have been frequently denied or brushed off by members of the Kardashian/Jenner inner circle, a new report from the celebrity tabloid Us Weekly claims that not only are the rumors 100 percent true, but that the former decathlon world record holder will reveal details of his transgender transition in " a major sit down interview" with an unspecified television network — and the interview has already been taped.
Us Weekly previously reported that the alleged Bruce Jenner sex change would comprise a major storyline on the upcoming season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but in its new issue, the tabloid claims that Jenner will become the star of a new, spinoff reality series of his own, and the focus of that entire series will be the now-65-year-old Olympic hero's transition from male to female.
The tabloid even ran a photo of Jenner snapped on Tuesday, in which the reality star is said to be sporting "new plump lips."
Also on Tuesday, Jenner's former stepdaughter, Kim Kardashian, appeared on Entertainment Tonight to promote her upcoming Super Bowl advertisement for T-Mobile, but found herself answering questions about the Bruce Jenner gender reassignment issue instead.
"I think everyone goes through things in life, and I think that story and what Bruce is going through, I think he'll share whenever the time is right... I feel like that's his journey to talk about."The Inquisitr previously reported on the unveiling of the Kim Kardashian Super Bowl ad, which can be viewed at this link.
The online site Gossip Cop is normally in the business of debunking various outrageous tabloid celebrity rumors. But when Gossip Cop reported on the supposed upcoming Bruce Jenner TV interview, in which Jenner allegedly announces his new gender preference, the site found nothing to contradict the report.
Gossip Cop did report that its sources at E! Network, which airs Keeping Up With The Kardashians, had denied that a Bruce Jenner spinoff series was on its slate. But in response to the Us Weekly report about the upcoming "docuseries," Gossip Cop could promise only "updates" to come.
