Kris Jenner Calls Bruce Jenner Her 'Hero' After Opening Up About His Transition
Like much of the rest of her family, Kardashian momager Kris Jenner has come out in support of ex-husband Bruce Jenner, who on Friday announced to the world he has “the soul of a female,” and will be transitioning from male to female.
Kris, 59, was one member of the family who Bruce, 65, says took news of the transition the hardest – telling Diane Sawyer in Friday’s 20/20 interview that it was one of the things that lead to their divorce – but she’s come around.
Though a source close the family once told PEOPLE that Bruce’s transition was “difficult” for the family, they’ve since had time to process his decision.
In an earlier Tweet Friday night, Kris shot back at Perez Hilton and said she had never been asked for comment on the situation. She also said she was sitting by Bruce’s side as the interview aired.
“@PerezHilton f— you Perez no one asked me to comment ….and I’m sitting with Bruce now watching this show so let’s keep it real…LOL.”
