Bruce Jenner Fears Backlash Over Transition Into Woman, Living Publicly As A Man To ‘Keep Everyone Happy’
Though photos were released this week of Bruce Jenner wearing women’s clothes at his Malibu, California, home, a source speaking to RadarOnline.com says the reality TV stars’ concerns about the public’s reaction to his transition have left him fearful of dressing as a woman in public.
Jenner recently underwent breast implant surgery and will be sitting down with Diane Sawyer on Friday for a tell-all interview, but the insider said he still has some serious worries about ditching his old clothes.
“He has been getting very nervous because he is afraid of backlash from his fans,” the source said.
“Bruce has been wearing women’s clothes and lingerie at home almost full-time now, with sons Brandon and Brody visiting and not having any problem with their dad’s changing appearance,” the source added.
And though the New York Daily News published photos of Bruce wearing a long dress while smoking outside his house, he has conistenlty worn his old wardrobe of hoodies, jeans and polo shirts while going out in public over the past few months.

“This is a very, very confusing time for Bruce, and he has been living two lives. Bruce just doesn’t think the world is ready to see him wearing the women’s silk shirts that he prefers to wear,” the insider said.
And the source added that despite having the support of his sons, his ex-wife Kris Jenner and daughter Kylie Jenner aren’t on board with his transition, leaving him confused on how to appease everyone. “His ex-wife, Kris, and youngest daughter, Kylie have been openly opposed to it, and now he doesn’t know what the world will think. It’s been such a juggling act for Bruce to try and keep everyone happy,” the source said.
