Kris ‘pressuring Bruce to deny sex change’
Kris Jenner believes her ex-husband putting out a statement would stop “ongoing rumours” about gender realignment surgery, according to reports.
The speculation has surrounded the reality show family for months following pictures of the former athlete sporting nail polish and growing out his hair. Despite the couple separating in October 2013, the 59-year-old is reportedly keen for her former spouse to vehemently deny the claims but Bruce isn’t going along with the plan.
“Kris has been pressuring Bruce to issue a statement about ongoing sex change rumours, and she wants it to be a very strong denial,” an insider told Radar Online. “She believes that putting out a statement would stop these ongoing rumours, and doesn’t understand why Bruce won’t do it.”
The strain has increased on the family after a celebrity magazine featured a picture of him as a woman, superimposed over former Dynasty star, Stephanie Beacham, last week.
But despite Kris’ eagerness, Bruce, 65, allegedly doesn’t want to consider speaking to the press about it.
“Whenever the subject comes up, Bruce just shuts her down,” the source continued. “This is extremely sensitive for Bruce, and it’s his choice not to address it.”
Bruce has the full support of his children, including sons Brandon and Brody from his second marriage to Linda Thompson.
“The magazine cover didn’t come as a surprise to the brothers, but they both feel it’s very insensitive to the LGBT community,” the family source previously revealed. “Both Brandon and Brody are both very strong supporters of LGBT people. They’re standing by their dad through this.”
