Our insider tells HollywoodLife.com: “Lamar is absolutely supportive of Bruce, his new life and his transition. Lamar will admire him and have the same respect for him as he always has. Nothing will change, except for calling him by his new name and referring to him as a woman, but Lamar hopes he and Bruce’s relationship will continue to thrive and flourish.”
This makes us to happy!
“Lamar’s highly anticipating the new conversations he’s going to have with Bruce and he hopes Bruce will be able to help him understand women better, like Khloe, because Lam Lam hasn’t had the best luck when when it comes to women. He needs all the help he can get in that department and he can’t wait to hear all the things Bruce has yet to teach him now that he’s going to become a lady.”
Scott Disick & Kanye West ‘s Reactions Revealed
The most disappointing part of all of this though is that Scott Disick wasn’t very supportive.
“Everyone basically knew what was up, but it was still a shock to hear it outlined so explicitly … [Scott] didn’t react very well …. but it now on board,” claims People.
Kim Kardashian handled it great but she was very worried about Kris Jenner.
“Kim went to Kris and asked her how she felt. They had a very long conversation about it,” claims the insider. “Once Kim was satisfied that Kris was emotionally okay, she was able to give Bruce her unconditional support.”
But Kim’s husband, Kanye West took the news in stride.
“He is totally fine with it,” the insider added. “He believes in live and let live, and he took it all in stride. He and Kim are just trying to show Bruce love and acceptance – complete acceptance.”
Bruce’s mother, Esther Jenner, she gave a quote about how she feels about Bruce’s change: “Right now I am more proud of him for what he’s allowing himself to do. I am more proud of him now than when he stood on that podium and put the gold medal around his neck. He deserves all the respect.”
Bruce will reportedly sit down with ABC News’ Diane Sawyer to make his big tell-all even more public.
