The interview we all waited for finally arrived tonight. The iconic Olympian and Patriarch of the Kardashian/Jenner clan Bruce Jenner tells Diane Sawyer he is indeed a woman now.
Sawyer immediately asks the burning question everyone wants to know the answer too, is Bruce a woman? Peep the video below:
You can easily see the relief on Jenner’s face as he revealed a secret he has been keeping for 65 years. Jenner revealed to Diane that he started having these feelings at the age of 8 or 9. Bruce would sneak in his mother’s or sisters’ closet for dresses while they were out.
Bruce told Diane “I marked the closet so when I put it back I could put it all back, everything back in the exact same spot so I wouldn’t get caught”
“And, at the time, I didn’t know why I was doing it besides it just made me feel good”
Wow. Bruce also spoke on the fact that he felt while filming Keeping Up With The Kardashians that “he had the story”. Watch the video below:
Bruce also revealed in the candid sit down that the first person he told was his first wife Chrystie.
Chrystie Scott reached out to ABC News and gave them this statement:
Someone who has lived 65 years of his life as the wrong gender has every right to live the last quarter of his life as his authentic self. I support him and so hope the world can too. I pray for his happiness for the rest of his journey.
Linda Thompson, Bruce’s second wife also reached out to ABC and left a statement:
Bruce has always had my loyalty, even if he wasn’t aware of it. I support his courage and commitment to this new chapter of his life. My hope is that his transition will inspire others who struggle with their identities, and my prayer is that humanity has evolved and been educated enough to exercise kindness toward those we may perceive as ‘different.
According to ABC Kris Jenner declined to leave a comment, BUT she did send off this tweet in response to Perez Hilton.
She has since deleted that tweet, but has tweeted some encouraging words for Bruce.
Jenner eventually told all 10 of his children and his mother about who he really is. Jenner revealed “they all cried, because they didn’t want anyone to hurt dad.” In a shocking revelation Jenner told Sawyer that Kanye West helped Kim understand what he was going through. Peep the video below:
Wow that was really dope of Kanye of to do. Also if you’re wondering Bruce does have a female name which he did not reveal. He did jokingly say the name did not begin with the letter K.
