Kris Jenner Addresses Bruce Jenner Gender Transition Topic as ‘Just Dumb’

Bruce's Mom Speaks
Bruce Jenner's mom confirms star's plans to transition.
It’s been reported that Kris Jenner has known about Bruce Jenner’s desire to transition into a woman for years and even knew of the struggle he faced with his sexual identity when the first got married. However, when the topic was brought to her attention during a recent interview, she dismissed the “rumors” as “just dumb.”

The reality star momager joined in on daughter Kim Kardashian’s raunchy, new spread for Love magazine, giving a short interview during which she opened up about Bruce, but refused to to talk about his transition.

Love asked Kris, “Where did the rumors that he is transitioning come from?”

She quickly sniped back, “I’m not even answering that. It’s just dumb.”

Obviously the interview was conducted before Bruce and the rest of his family confirmed his transition to be true and therefore Kris was trying to play it off as simply a rumor.

But while she dismissed that particular topic, she was completely fine talking about her relationship with her now ex-husband.

“Bruce is great. Bruce is good,” Kris told the magazine. “We’re good friends. In life, you realize on some level you’re happier living apart than you are together and that’s what happened with us. We just grew apart. We weren’t getting along like two people in love should be getting along. And it’s been kind of amazing, you know?”

An insider told Us Weekly that the real reason for the split was Bruce’s desire to become a woman. “He needed to live his life the way he wanted to,” the family source explained, “So they split.”

Bruce will open up about his transformation in a sit-down interview with Diane Sawyer during which he’ll reveal the female name he chose for himself. The Olympic medalist will also film his transition for an E! docuseries.
