Bruce Jenner is reportedly ‘transitioning to a woman’ and the whole transition process will air on TV as a docuseries, it has been reported.
According to People, Jenner ‘is transitioning to a woman. He is finally happy and his family is accepting of what he’s doing. He’s in such a great space. That’s why it’s the perfect time to do something like this.’
The Olympian has been the subject of transgender rumors for the past year, beginning from the time when he underwent surgery to flatten his Adam’s apple. Back then, he had denied the rumor, saying that he simply never liked his Adam’s apple. Ever since then, he has been spotted with longer hair, manicured, painted nails and wearing makeup … and so the rumors kept swirling.
Now both TMZ and People report that the denial was part of a ‘smart’ plan to gradually break the news to the public. As People‘s source put it, ‘Instead of completely shocking everyone, his changes have been subtle, and his family has had the chance to slowly get used to his new looks and life.’
According to TMZ, an unnamed leader in the transgender community said they had known about the transformation for ‘way more than a year.’ In fact, the Kardashian patriarch has gone so far in his transition procedure that he has already filmed the official announcement … and part of the plan is to get the Kardashian family to gradually leak the story to the press, just like People got theirs. This week, Kim Kardashian had told Entertainment Tonight that her stepfather is on a ‘journey’ and will tell his story ‘whenever the time is right.’
The said time, TMZ reports, is around May, when the docuseries will begin airing on E!.
