Not all of the Kardashians are on board with Bruce Jenner’s rumored gender transition, according to a new report from Us. Just over a week before Jenner’s much-hyped sit down with Diane Sawyer is broadcast, the magazine reports that only Khloe Kardashian was supporting Bruce. Bruce believes the remaining Kardashian women are expressing approval just for the publicity.
Two of Bruce’s sons, Brandon and Brody, do support him. Brandon Jenner reportedly even participated in the Diane Swayer interview. Brody and Brandon are Jenner’s sons from his marriage to Linda Thompson.
Brandon Jenner is married to Leah Jenner, and the couple also perform music together. The couple announced only a few weeks ago that they are expecting their first child. They married in 2012.
Brandon and Leah have in the past made frequent appearances on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Brandon has been open about his good relationship with his father. Only a few months ago he posted a picture with Bruce on Instagram as father and son were enjoying a helicopter ride.

Leah is the daughter of Eagles member Don Felder, who wrote their classic song “Hotel California” with Don Henley and Glenn Frey.
Back in January, Kim Kardashian told Entertainment Tonight that she and her family support Bruce, while still refusing to confirm he is in the midst of a gender transition. Kim also discussed an Instagram picture that showed Bruce surrounded by his three stepdaughters and daughters with Kris Jenner, Kendall and Kylie.
“Well we support Bruce no matter what, so we were just at his house hanging out and we wanted to take a picture, that was not like a secret message like, ‘We support Bruce.’ Of course we support Bruce 100 percent.
“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. I just think it’s his story to talk about, not really mine.”
Bruce Jenner’s story has elicited praise and support from Hollywood notables such as Oscar winner Patricia Arquette and “Transparent” star Jeffrey Tambor. Some transgender advocates, however, have expressed fear that the publicity surrounding Jenner’s story may work against further acceptance for members of the transgender community.
A report that Kendall Jenner had spoken with Us and said she supports Bruce regardless of gender was retracted after Kendall Jenner denied speaking with anyone from the magazine.
Diane Sawyer’s interview with Bruce Jenner airs April 24th at 9 p.m. and will be two hours in length.
