The world can’t just leave Bruce Jenner alone. Is he transitioning to be a woman? Is he “on a journey”? Ever since he started growing his hair a bit longer, the world has been going nuts speculating about what’s going on in his private life, and now it seems like People has got the REAL SCOOP (yes, that’s sarcasm).
“Bruce is transitioning to a woman,” says a source close to the family. “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.”
“He’s being very smart about and also respectful about his transition,” the insider says. “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.”
And his family, including children Cassandra, 34, Burt, 36 (with ex wife Chrystie Crownover ) and sons Brandon, 33 and Brody, 31 (with ex wife Linda Thompson), as well as daughters Kendall, 19 and Kylie, 17 (with Kris Jenner) are adjusting to the new Bruce. “The [kids'] concern seems to be Bruce’s happiness, and he acts very pleased with his new life,” says the insider.
Admits the family source: “It is an intense thing. Of course not everyone is 100 percent on board. Different people have different reactions. But everybody loves him.”
“The family is really giving this space and time to Bruce. This is his story and they want him to tell the world the way he wants,” the source close to the family says. “They really want to empower him to tell his story so that hopefully he can help other people too. That’s the goal.”
Now it appears that Jenner, finally happy in his own skin, will soon be ready to live life out in the open. “He has come out to those closest to him,” says the family source. “He’s so happy and excited. He gets to lay down a huge bag of bricks. He’s been through a dark period and is coming out on the other side.”
So basically, People feels okay paying an intern to make up quotes from a “source” to make another headline about Bruce’s gender identity? That, or the Kardashian/Jenner clans know some really shitty people who are quite happy to give over private details about their lives in exchange for a hundred bucks… which seems just as likely, now that I think about it.
