We were heartbroken to see Bruce and Kris Jenner’s relationship come to an end on ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians,’ but if a split is the only way the reality TV dad can truly be himself, then we support it.
When Bruce and Kris Jenner officially separated in October, we suspected that they had just grown apart or that they could no longer handle the pressure of being in a high-profile relationship. But now that it’s apparent that Bruce wanted out of the marriage because it was suffocating his identity, I’m seeing the split in a new light.
Bruce Jenner Was Suppressed By Married Lifestyle
And though the plastic surgery — a laryngeal shave — Bruce has been getting, and the idea that he may want to be a woman seem weird on the outside, the bottom line is that he has felt boxed in by his life as a Kardashian-in-law. What Bruce wants to become shouldn’t matter — the only thing that matters is the sad idea that he’s been forced to live a life he doesn’t want.
“Imagine being famous, then being in the Kardashian family and having children. Then living in a body that you don’t want to live in — it is really a personal nightmare,” the source said. There’s no way Bruce could go through all of these drastic — and controversial — changes while still in the spotlight as Mr. Kris Jenner.
Bruce Jenner: Do What You Gotta Do
So yeah, go ahead and make fun of me because I think splitting from her was the right decision. “Bruce looks back at his past fondly, but he is doing what he is doing with his facial surgeries and other changes because he is interested in his future,” another source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “He has to live his life, not Kris’s life anymore.”
I totally agree with that. It’s going to be an uphill battle for him, especially with his daughters Kendall and Kylie, but no one should ever have to suppress their true identity. And if the only way for Bruce to embrace who he really is was to split up with Kris, then he totally made the right move.
Do you agree, HollywoodLifers? Let me know.
