Is Bruce Jenner Transgender?
There’s perks to living in a house filled with estrogen: An uncanny knowledge about chick flicks, immaculate closets…unlimited access to the contents of those immaculate closets.
Depending on who’s telling the story, Bruce Jenner’s been a closeted crossdresser for decades. But, if a new scoop from The National Enquirer (yeah, we know) is to be believed, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians is taking a major step in owning his sexual identity and becoming a woman: He’s having his Adam’s apple surgically shaved.
The Enquirer claims the Olympic runner, now 64, checked into The Beverly Hills Surgical Center for a “laryngeal shave” earlier this month — this after meeting with noted plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen J. Pincus to discuss sex reassignment surgery.
“Bruce says he is finally doing what he wants to do. He knows he will be the butt of a ton of jokes, but he was tired of living his life to make other people happy.”
Bruce and wife Kris Jenner announced their separation in October. Rumors about Bruce’s gender identity issues date back to 2012. That’s when Ellen Kardashian — the widow of O.J. Simpson defense attorney Robert Kardashian — publicly accused the Kardashian steppop of hiding a secret collection of wigs, dresses, high heels and lacy lingerie that he routinely pranced around in just for kicks.
In an explosive chat with Star magazine, Ellen, 63, claimed she first learned of Bruce’s penchant for crossdressing while having drinks with his ex-wife, Chrystie.
“‘Of course Bruce was every woman’s heartthrob when he was that age, right?’ Ellen had asked Chrystie. But Chrystie said, ‘Yeah, until I went on a trip and I came back and he had gone through all my clothes. And I found my bras…He’d clip them together and wear them. I couldn’t live with that,’ she confessed.”
Chrystie divorced Bruce soon after. The father of four married the former Kris Kardashian in 1990. The second wife was more than accepting of her husband’s unusual hobby.
…Her daughters: Well, not really..
Ellen recalled the time Khloe discovered her stepdad’s stash of “wigs and size 13 shoes.”
“Khloe called her dad and she was very upset, crying and screaming about it…Robert did confirm to Khloe that those were not her mother’s clothing and that they belonged to Bruce. “
