Bruce Jenner is allegedly not only getting a sex change, but he is also already working on a new name. The 64-year-old cannot get his name out of the headlines these days, after reports that he is getting a sex change to become a woman.
On Thursday, photos emerged of him leaving the Beverly Hills Surgical Center after reportedly getting a “laryngeal shave,” which is “the first surgical procedure for patients transitioning from male to female.” The surgery shaves down the Adam's apple.
This comes months after being married for 22 years to reality star Kris Jenner and several years of living in front of the cameras for "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." The couple announced in October that they're separating, and while they didn't specify why, new reports suggest this may be the reason.
“We are living separately, and we are much happier this way,” the reality-TV couple told E! News. “But we will always have much love and respect for each other. Even though we are separated, we will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our No. 1 priority.”

Now, Jenner seems to be brainstorming name changes, and a source tells the National Enquirer he may change it to “Brigitte” after screen siren Brigitte Bardot. As long as “there’s going to be no more K’s in my life," he allegedly said. "I’m fed up with the Kardashians!”
“He loves ‘Brigitte’ not only because it’s such a beautiful name, but it makes him think of Brigitte Bardot, who was a total bombshell," a source said. "She also starred in (the 1956 movie) ‘And God Created Woman’ -- and Bruce thinks it’s just perfect since he’s in the process of becoming a woman."
While they have separated, Kris and Bruce have no plans to legally split. “I’m doing great,” Bruce told People after the announcement. “Kris is happy, I’m happy. Nobody is filing for divorce. Kris has her own place and I have my own place. There's no animosity. Everything is good.”
