Last week, former Olympian Bruce Jenner opened up about his gender transition on a Diane Sawyer special. With his transformation out in the open, several family issues surfaced, particularly the feud between son Brody and stepdaughter Kim.
Despite accusations that she is “nothing but evil,” Kim recently came forward to the media to express her full support for Bruce. Last Monday, she made an appearance on the Today show and opened up about Bruce’s gender transition.
During the interview, Kim admitted that the family had a hard time adjusting to Bruce’s decision. Nonetheless, they are all on board in supporting him in his transformation. She confessed that she could never fully understand her stepfather but that doesn’t stop her from being there for him. She then expressed her feelings.

“I don’t know what life would be like if you always felt like you weren’t yourself and I know it’s not something that you or I could ever fully understand, but I don’t even think we have to.
“As long as he is happy, and he wants to live his life however he wants to live it, that just makes me happy and I support him 100 percent.”
The reality star also expressed how upset she was with the rumors that followed Bruce’s revealing interview. Kim denied the allegations raised against her and her mother, Kris.
She said, “I see reports that say, you know, ‘This one doesn’t support him,’ and ‘This one’s over here,’ and my mum feels this way and it’s all really so made up.”
To prove her point, Kim shared several measures that the family took to show their support for Bruce’s transformation. According to her, the family turned to LGBT organization GLAAD, which educated them on how to treat Bruce as he goes through his transition. From the organization, the family learned to use male pronouns when referring to Bruce until his transformation is complete.
Last week, sources related that Brody banned Kim from seeing Bruce based on the suspicions that she was spying for Kris.
An insider claimed, “With Kim, nothing feels sincere, or real.”
However, during the former Olympian’s dialogue with Sawyer, Bruce countered the false revelations against his stepdaughter. He claimed that Kim had been the “most accepting” of his transformation.
While many remain unconvinced, it seems like Kim has more pressing issues to deal with. Latest reports reveal that the reality star was advised to get a surrogate for her next child.
