New photos of Bruce Jenner are fueling rumors that the reality star is preparing for a sex change. The reality star stepped out in public this week with a bizarre reddish-brown mullet, which is only adding to fan speculation that he wants to become a woman.
Reports that Bruce Jenner wants a sex change have gone viral for several months. The speculation began when TMZ reported late last year that the reality star wanted surgery to flatten his Adam’s Apple. Some believe this is a common procedure for men who want to become women. Jenner eventually postponed the procedure when news of his plans went viral. But a few months later he emerged with a bandaged neck. So it appears he may have gone through with the surgery, after all.
Of course, even if Bruce Jenner had this laryngeal shave, that does not mean that he wants to become a woman. But fans have noticed other signs pointing to his desire to become more feminine. He has not been shy about manicuring his nails, and before getting his new mullet he wore his hair in a feminine bob and an odd bouffant. There were even reports that Bruce Jenner consulted with a sex change specialist and wanted to change his name to “Bridgitte,” though that was never confirmed.
Much of this behavior began following his separation from Kris Jenner, which led some fans to think this Bruce Jenner wants to become a woman to express his newfound freedom.
“Bruce looks back at his past fondly, but he is doing what he is doing with his facial surgeries and other changes because he is interested in his future,” one source told Hollywood Life about the sex change rumors. “And that future is to be as close to a woman as possible. It’s embarrassing to the family, he knows that, but he has to live his life, not Kris’ life anymore.”
Kris Jenner, for her part, did all she could to dispel the Bruce Jenner sex change rumors. When asked in April whether her ex-husband wants to be a woman, the momager insisted: “That’s a story they've been writing since the ‘70s, and I think they just keep regurgitating stuff... and the more sensational the headline, they are going to sell magazines. It’s just like unbelievable that these blatant lies are printed, and people are gullible and they buy the magazines.”
But just a few months ago, the speculation intensified again when the former Olympian got highlights in his hair during an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. And the latest mullet photos continue to make fans think Bruce Jenner wants to be a woman. So despite Kris’ denials, it seems the Bruce Jenner sex change rumors will not go away anytime soon.
