Tabloids all over the world are publishing covers of Bruce Jenner’s transition to becoming a woman. “InTouch”, an Australian gossip magazine, even photoshopped Jenner’s head onto actress Stephanie Beacham. In other words, Jenner is at the center of the gossip circle and the press is buzzing about his new life.
Bruce Jenner revealed to his family that he has been a female since the age of five. However, Jenner has never acted as a female in front of his family by wearing feminine clothes and makeup.
According to the “New York Times”, Jenner’s mother gave an interview with “The National Enquirer” in early February. She reported that this is the “happiest” she has ever seen her son.
Jenner, who is considered one of the best Olympic male athletes of all time, has yet to
have a recorded interview regarding this topic. An interview with Diane Sawyer is expected to air in early March discussing Jenner’s transition and his family’s reactions.
Earlier this month, Jenner was also part of a fatal car crash that left one woman dead. Jenner was driving his Lexus when it collided with another vehicle. This crash added more stress to Jenner’s life.
A recent source talked about Jenner’s coping with the investigation. “Everybody feels for him. He has been fighting a private battle and has come so far. Now he is really shaken up,” the source said. “This couldn’t have come at a worse time for him. He is in a state of shock.”
