Nearly 40 years ago, Bruce Jenner was praised for winning Olympic gold in the decathlon, but these days he’s being plagued by rumors that he's turning into a woman. From reportedly changing his name to Bridgette, to allegedly shaving down his Adam’s apple, to purportedly painting his nails red, to the infamous ponytail, there have been countless stories about the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star's alleged transition.

Jenner has denied the stories, but they've had even his mother concerned; she confronted him over the phone about the rumors. Kris Jenner stood by her Olympian husband -- even after she filed for divorce -- and proclaimed the transgender stories were phony. The Kardashian matriarch was reportedly “outraged” by the cover of InTouch Weekly, which shows Jenner, 65, wearing lipstick. The cover sent the Twitterverse into a frenzy as people wondered whether the motivational speaker really wants to become a woman.

None of the Kardashians or Jenners commented about the cover despite their immense social media presence. Jenner's biological daughters Kendall and Kylie promoted their PacSun clothing line, Khloe Kardashian sent out a message about the tragedy in Nigeria, Kourtney wished she could talk to Oprah about her problems and Kim, of course, posted a picture of herself and Kanye West.

While the Kardashian-Jenner clan try to ignore the story, it hasn't stop others from speculating endlessly on Twitter. There are those who think it’s a hoax created by the magazine to make money, and then there are those who think there might be some truth to the ceaseless rumors. Some of their comments are below:
