Bruce Jenner has been generating a lot of rumors about his appearance since his split from longtime wife Kris Jenner. The patriarch of the Kardashian reality TV family has become distinctly more feminine in his look of late, undergoing everything from plastic surgery to manicures. After a recent insensitive magazine cover mocked his appearance (along with the entire trans community), Bruce is said to be getting ready to talk about what he’s up to.
65-year old Bruce Jenner was the cover story for an InTouch Weekly magazine piece that photoshopped the former Olympian turned reality star to have lipstick and the body of female star Stephanie Beacham.
UsWeekly reports that Bruce was upset by the insensitive cover and will discuss his changed appearance on Season 10 of the family reality show Keeping up with the Kardashians, alongside his now ex-wife, 59-year old Kris Jenner.
“Bruce and Kris address his changing appearance in a scene they shot together,” the source explains. “It will be a plotline.”
There has been a lot of speculation about Bruce’s feminizing his appearance, with reports of the star using hair extensions to boost his thin ponytail, plastic surgery, pink nail polish and Spanx.
Bruce is said to be exploring his feminine side and since the insensitive cover came out, his family has been urging him to make a statement.
Bruce Jenner has been a fan of plastic surgery for several decades, undergoing facelift procedures that many fans deemed unnecessary and that gave him a more feminine appearance than a typical male would want. However, since splitting up with his wife, Bruce has becoming even more feminine growing out his hair and shaving down his Adam’s apple with plastic surgery.
Frequently a laryngeal shave is the first step in a male to female transition for transgender patients. However, Bruce said he was interested in having because “I just never liked my trachea.”
In an interview last year, Kris was asked by ET’s Nancy O’Dell and Kevin Frazier about the rumors swirling that her husband is transgender.
“They’ve been saying that since 1976,” she said candidly. “For me, that’s not my experience with Bruce. He’s a great guy. I love him. I don’t know what he’s going through right now. I think he’s just very happy and I think every time he makes a change in his life — whether it’s emotional or physical or whatever he’s doing — somebody’s going to comment on whatever look you have going on for the day.”
She then revealed that some people are so bothered by Bruce’s new hairstyle, that they have asked her about just that.
“You know, people often ask me you know what’s going on with just his hair alone,” she said. “That’s where they’re getting part of it, and I say, ‘Look, I love to control everything I can because I am a control freak but I had to let that one go.’ … So yeah, he’s great though, he’s doing good.”
