Fellow Starbucks customers couldn’t help but gawk on Dec. 3 when Bruce Jenner stopped into his local Malibu coffee shop. They were stunned by his large, glimmering diamond earrings — and the fact that he appeared to be wearing lip gloss and mascara! Rounding out his makeover were a French manicure and long, high ponytail complete with ombre highlights. But, perhaps most shocking of all, were the breasts protruding beneath his baggy black sweatshirt!
So, why the sudden decision to make his transformation so much less discreet? Star has learned that the Olympian’s divorce from Kris Jenner was all but finalized in early December, and his newfound freedom has given him confidence to open up to his family about who he truly is.
On Dec. 1, the 65-year-old invited Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian to lunch to share his decision, with plans to tell younger children, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, at a later time. “The girls were reserved at first, but listening to Bruce open up and get teary as he spoke really touched them,” a source reveals. “They told him they support him no matter what, and they always will.”
Before telling the Kardashian girls, Bruce also told his other adult children, Brody, Brandon, Burt and Brody Jenner, and Cassandra Marino, who were also supportive.
Kris, on the other hand, is livid with her ex. “When Kim let it slip to Kris that Bruce had opened up to her and her sisters about his changes, Kris called him and lit into him,” the insider reveals. “She told him he’s a disgrace.”
