More information has been revealed about Bruce Jenner’s journey as a transwoman and finally becoming physically female after 65 years.
Sources claim, after the sex change operation, Bruce will choose a new name. “Inside, he has always been Belinda,” an insider tells Star Magazine. “He has been planning this transformation for such a long time.”
The magazine notes the admitted laryngeal shave to smooth the adam’s apple, the long hair, the painted nails, and alleged medical procedures to “make his shape curvier”. The insider says of ex-wife Kris Jenner: “She knew what he was all about [back in the 80s-90s] but he was her trophy husband… He had told people before he even met Kris that he wanted to undergo the process of transitioning, but she talked him out of it.”
“He has such a sense of freedom now,” admits the source of the 65-year-old. Even Bruce’s mother is publicly on the Olympian’s side. “He doesn’t need to hide anymore.”
PEOPLE insiders also reveal how Kris is coping with this going public. Considering that she’s known and joked about it (as a way of dismissing it) for decades. “It’s really a hard adjustment for her,” says the PEOPLE source. “Kris had the most difficult time in the family. She’s looking back at their entire marriage, and a lot of things are suddenly making sense. She’s had a lot to process.”
Bruce’s children and (ex) stepchildren are also supportive. “Bruce told them everything — where things stood and what his plans were for the future, what everyone could expect… The kids came around pretty quickly, but each of them had to process it in their own way. They are trying to show him love and acceptance. All they want is for him to be happy.”
Moreover, “No one feels deceived by Bruce. He was going through his change slowly. It’s not like he woke up one day and was like, ‘Surprise!’ He moved through his own feelings and his own changes at his own pace.”
