Bruce Jenner sex change claims ‘absurd’

Bruce Jenner

Bruce Jenner’s friends reportedly believe rumours he wants to transform into a woman are completely “absurd”.

The 64-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star underwent surgery to reduce the size of his Adam’s apple a few months ago, which is a procedure many transgender people have performed before a sex change.

But friends close to Bruce don’t believe he’s at all concerned with transforming his sex.

"[Sex change claims are] absurd," a source told People magazine, with another insider adding: "Bruce has never expressed interest in becoming a woman.”

The Olympic athlete split from wife Kris Jenner late last year, and apparently his physical alterations are related to heartbreak.

Loved ones purportedly believe he is “having an identity crisis”.

"Bruce is definitely concerned with his looks and always has been," the insider claimed, noting being on TV for several years "made him even more hyper aware” of his appearance.

"The guy is getting older and doing what he can to keep a youthful look. If that means plastic surgery, so be it,” a family friend added.

Bruce and Kris were married for 22 years and they share two children together, Kendall and Kylie.

And Bruce’s recent drastic change in appearance is said to be confusing his daughters.

“Kylie and Kendall just don’t know what to think. It’s extremely confusing for them to grasp,” a source told Radar Online previously.

“There is just no denying Bruce’s recent physical changes, and he does look more feminine.”

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
