Bruce is said to address his difficulties with feeling like a woman, but never living like one.

It's also believed that his breast surgery was recorded for a new docu-series, a spin-off of Keeping Up With The Kardashians focusing on his transition into a woman.

“Cameras were there during Bruce’s breast implant surgery. The days leading up to the surgery were very emotional for him, and there was talk about canceling the surgery,” a source told Radar Online.

“He was very nervous and was having last-minute doubts about making such a drastic alteration to his physical appearance. Filming took place for a few minutes during the surgery, and immediately picked up in the recovery room after it was over.”
