Former pro-athlete Bruce Jenner, who was married to Kardashian momager Kris Jenner for 24 years, has told Diane Sawyer about his new life path in an exclusive interview aired on Friday 23 April on ABC’s 20/20 show.
The sensitive and revealing interview confirmed Bruce’s desire to live out the rest of his life as a woman.
There were tears as Bruce described the turmoil he has been through living as a woman in the wrong body and the frustration at being accused of this being a publicity stunt.
Step-daughter Kim Kardashian has revealed how much she has struggled with the news that her stepfather wishes to have a gender reassignment. The reality TV star went on to say, however, that she and her family fully support Bruce, who said in the interview that it was in fact Kim’s husband, rapper Kanye West, who helped him figure out what he wanted.
The only person yet to say much about Bruce’s changes is most recent ex-wife Kris, who has two daughters with Bruce. Aside from the odd Tweet defending her silence, Kris hasn’t spoken out about her husband’s transformation.
At the time of publication, it was still Bruce’s wishes to be referred to with the male pronoun.
