As photos of Bruce Jenner in a dress circulate prior to his highly anticipated interview with Diane Sawyer, ex-wife Kris Jenner is worried about how daughters Kendall and Kylie Jenner will handle the escalating publicity surrounding their father. In particular, Kris is concerned about Kylie, whose presence on social media and feud with Blac Chyna also has become more public, reported Hollywood Take.
Those photos showed Jenner wearing a striped dress. His hair appeared longer, and the size of his chest also support previous reports that the former Olympic gold medal winner had breast implant surgery.
As more indications that Jenner was transitioning into a woman become public, both the Kardashians and Jenner family members have shown their support, with the exception of Kris. But she is highly anxious about the interview, which remains a smoking gun in her mind.
“Initially, she was really upset about it; the fact that he was going to address anything publicly,” revealed an insider. “So the momager part of her, was like, ‘Hell, no.'”
But to Bruce, this interview represents his chance to speak his own truth and reveal his authentic self, added that source.
“Bruce has never been allowed to say anything. For him this is an ‘Eff you — this is my life!’ moment.”
As the Inquisitr reported, Kris Jenner initially tried to deny reports that Bruce was transitioning.
“I’m not even answering that. It’s just dumb,” she sniffed at questions about her ex-husband’s transgender rumors.
One of her friends even described Kris as being in denial.
“Kris is in complete denial about what’s going on with Bruce,” said Kris’ pal. “She doesn’t talk about it at all and refuses to acknowledge it.”
But not all sources agree on whether Kris Jenner knew about Bruce’s plans to transition, reported TMZ. Some insiders report that she only knew of Bruce’s desire to dress in women’s attire, and that Kris never saw him in the way shown in the new photos.
But sources close to Bruce insist that Kris did know about his transition. However, he told his daughters prior to breaking the news to his ex-wife. As far as any indication that Kris might sue after the interview with Diane Sawyer airs? Wrong, said the insiders.
For young Kylie Jenner, however, the interview comes at a tumultuous time in her life, reported MSN. Kylie reportedly is dating Tyga, who is Blac Chyna’s ex-girlfriend.
With extensive publicity surrounding Kylie’s famous pout, Chyna took a selfie wearing enormous wax red lips to mock Kylie.
“Will be available on @88_fin,” she wrote for her caption.
