Bruce Jenner Sex Change Update: Refuses Kris Jenner’s Demands to Deny Transgender Rumors.

On his daily YouTube show The Trews (which stands for “true news”) on Friday, Brand stood up for the former Olympian and Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, saying the constant media attention focused on his physical appearance is akin to bullying and “transphobia.” “Transphobia seems to be the most recent and encouraged form of prejudice, now that racism and homophobia are not tolerated,” Brand said, referring to a TMZ show focused on dissecting Jenner’s new look – and that now infamous InTouch cover where Jenner was photoshopped wearing lipstick and blush. “It’s such a celebration of the worst aspects of human values,” Brand said. “What this does is it sanctions people being judgmental and cruel toward transgender folks.” In response to a TV quiz where the host asked “Do you think Bruce wants to be a woman? The star took umbrage with InTouch magazine’s latest cover which features Bruce as a woman in his latest episode of The Trews – the YouTube show in which he “provides true news”.

For the last few months, Bruce Jenner has been subject to a long list of claims he is undergoing a transition from male to female – none of which have been confirmed. The irony is that while Kris is busy demanding that Bruce deny the rumors regarding his identity it is she who is drawing the most attention to the topic.

Let us know!” “Bruce has really no interest in responding to everything that comes out in the media about him,” the friend says. “He’s much more private than people think.” His comments come after reports that Jenner’s separated wife Kris Jenner (Kim Kardashian West’s mother) has severed ties with all Bauer publications in the wake of the In Touch cover. “They won’t get any ‘real’ quotes from the family, and will be banned from Kardashian-Jenner red carpets, events, premieres and fashion events,” a source told New York Daily News.

Bruce, 65, who officially divorced Kris Jenner last month after 23 years of marriage, has never said that he was going to change his sex but speculation has rumbled on. Bruce’s sons – Brody and Brandon – were also taken back by magazine: “[It] didn’t come as a surprise to the brothers, but they both feel it’s very insensitive to the LGBT community,” the source said on the cover, “Both Brandon and Brody are both very strong supporters of LGBT people. Months of circulating rumors have said former Olympian Bruce in transgender has been going through the process of transitioning in preparation for a sex change operation, but he has remained mum on the topic.

Now Kris is stepping forward to demand he take a strong public stance against these rumors, but Bruce is reportedly not bending to her will, preferring to keep his personal life to himself (apart from occasional appearances in public where he looks like a man trying to look like a woman) and take his time releasing any statements regarding whether he is or is not transgender or if he is planning to get sexual reassignment surgery. Obvious changes in Bruce’s appearance over the course of the last several months, including longer hair, facial plastic surgery, and a shift in his wardrobe choices, kept rumors burning, and the divorce between the couple just seemed to push them further. According to Kris, however, there is no validity to these claims (Radar) and she is ready to set the record straight and get out from under the insinuations and falsified news stories.
