Kellie Maloney has been the latest celebrity to offer her advice to Bruce Jenner as he continues his transition into a woman.
The boxing promoter (42) underwent gender reassignment surgery earlier this year and said she fully sympathises with Bruce who is said to be finding it difficult to cope with the media attention surrounding his transition.
“Bruce really needs to stop worrying about being a reality TV star and think about himself. He needs to concentrate on his transition fully,” Kellie told The Mirror.
“What Bruce is going through is hard and I sympathise.”
Kellie, formerly known as Frank, revealed she would be happy to lend her advice to Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Bruce.
Kellie also urged Bruce to communicate with his family throughout the process, which she believes is the key.
“As soon as I knew I wanted to transition, I told them, step by step, so they could see what I was going through so they could go through the journey.
"Bruce didn’t do that but he should have,” said Kellie.
Rumours emerged this weekend that Bruce will pose on the cover of US magazine Vanity Fair following his gender reassignement surgery which he is believed to have undergone earlier this month.
