Bruce Jenner was spotted in Thousand Oaks, California on Monday while filming scenes for “Keeping Up With The Kardashians”, the first time he’s been seen out in public since having surgery to shave down his Adam’s apple.
The reality star caused headlines and a lot of speculation after news leaked in December that he would be having the surgery; many believe he’s altering his appearance because he’s making the transformation into a female, something his sons deny. However, doctors say it is a common part of gender reassignment surgery.
The rumor mill has been churning recently regarding Jenner’s new look and the effect it’s having on his family; namely, Kim Kardashian, who reportedly worries that it will take the focus off her upcoming marriage to Kanye West.
“Kim is fed up having to field questions about Bruce wanting to be a woman,” a source told the Mirror. “She thinks he’s trying to steal her thunder. Kim had her heart set on a traditional ceremony with Bruce walking her down the aisle and giving her away. If he’s a woman by then, she absolutely won’t have it.”
Whether that’s true or not remains to be seen–and likely would be captured on camera during filming for the show–but rumor has it that Jenner’s sons, Brody and Brandon, don’t believe the stories going around about their father and think the surgery is a result of being on television.
“The boys don’t think their father is trying to become a woman and simply laugh at rumours,” a source said. “They do believe that Bruce became more conscience of his physical appearance and how he looked after Keeping Up With The Kardashians premiered,” the insider explained. “They blame their step-mother (Kris) for all of the plastic surgery he has had over the years. Kris always encouraged Bruce to have his face nipped and tucked. He has had plastic surgery to remove excess fat above his eyelids. The Adam’s apple surgery is just following in that pattern.”
