Kim Kardashian 'in trouble' with family for mouthing about Bruce Jenner's alleged transition

Kim Kardashian is “in a lot of trouble” with her family for commenting on Bruce Jenner’s alleged plans to become a woman, it has been claimed.

The reality star spoke out about her stepdad’s “journey” earlier this month after continued speculation that the former Olympian is planning to transition to become a woman. It seems her comments to Entertainment Tonight have evoked anger among her siblings.

“Kim’s in a lot of trouble with the rest of the family for talking about Bruce like that,” an insider told British magazine Heat.

“Everyone’s saying she should have just said he was happy and left it there. Khloé, especially, was fuming about it. She thinks they should be there for Bruce but in a private way.”

During her interview with Entertainment Tonight, the mother-of-one spoke of the 65-year-old’s “journey” and said he would talk about it when the time was right. Her comments were interpreted as confirming the rumours that he wanted to become a woman.

And it seems 30-year-old Khloé isn’t the only sibling annoyed at Kim. Her half-sister Kendall Jenner, who has always been particularly close to her dad, is also said to be struggling with the situation and Kim’s comments.

“She’s very upset and confused, and just not dealing any of this well,” the source added. “She insists that the family need to show support, but it needs to be in private. Now, she sees Kim talk about it on TV, and that’s hard for her.”

Bruce separated from Kris Jenner in December 2013 and they are currently finalising their divorce. As well as Kendall and Kylie, Bruce has three sons from his first marriage and is stepdad to Kim, Khloé, Kourtney and Rob.

Bruce’s son Brody is also rumoured to be livid with the 34-year-old.

“He thinks the whole situation is turning into a circus,” said the insider.

According to Radar, Bruce's mom has also confirmed her son's transition, allegedly claiming she's very "proud" of him.
