Bruce Jenner can’t seem to catch a break. Following several rumors that the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” reality star and former Olympic athlete is undergoing a sex change, Jenner is now reportedly being bullied for his new look, which has included everything from a longer hairstyle to painted fingernails.
TMZ reports that Jenner, 65, an avid golfer, was taunted by two individuals at his daily haunt, the Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, California. While most of the guests have been respectful of his appearance, a source close to Jenner claims that a couple of men's actions did attract negative attention to the father of six.
According to the site, during one incident a golfer passed Jenner on the country club’s course and yelled, "How’s your d--k?” Jenner reportedly responded with a joke, saying, “It’s right here. It hasn’t worked in 20 years.” After the bullying on the green, another man allegedly threatened to cut off Jenner’s hair in the locker room after mocking his ombré hair color.
Jenner was first rumored to be transitioning into a woman a year ago, just one week after he and his wife of 22 years, fellow reality star Kris Jenner, 58, announced their plan to separate. Star magazine was the first to float the allegations about Jenner, claiming he had a secret “feminine side” and was known for “borrowing” stepdaughter Kim Kardashian’s lingerie.
“He likes growing his hair out, likes getting manicures and pedicures, and won’t leave his house without his diamond earrings. And he’s obsessed with plucking his eyebrows,” a source told the magazine.
Three months after the cross-dressing reports surfaced, Jenner was photographed leaving the Beverly Hills Surgical Center with bandages around his neck. The National Enquirer broke the story, suggesting that his bandages were the result of an Adam’s apple removal surgery also known as a “laryngeal shave.” According to several reports, the procedure is generally the first step for patients undergoing a gender reassignment from male to female. According to Us Weekly. Jenner said he underwent the surgery merely because he was not a fan of his trachea.
Jenner once held the title of "world's greatest athlete" as gold medalist in the Olympic decathlon in 1976.
Kris Jenner last spoke out about the rumors in October on NBC's "Today" Show, calling the accusations regarding her ex “silly.”
“They’ve been saying that since the '70s. So you would think it would be cooked by now,” Kris said. “They just keep regurgitating the same old stuff.”
