The world was watching when Bruce Jenner came out as transgender in an interview with Diane Sawyer last week — so how’s he doing now?
In an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live this week, Bruce’s step-daughter Kim Kardashian West gave viewers an update. “It’s a really brave thing to come out and you know, be so truthful, and to have all that support really meant the world to him. And our family.”
Sources say that Kim is closest to Bruce out of all of her sisters because she has been the most supportive of Bruce, who said in his big interview, “For all intents and purposes, I am a woman.”
“She’s always there to listen and try to understand what he’s going through,” the source continued.
Kim’s husband Kanye West may have had something to do with that; when Kim told him about Bruce’s transition, Kanye said, “Look, I can be married to the most beautiful woman in the world, and I am. I can have the most beautiful little daughter in the world, and I have that. But I’m nothing if I can’t be me. If I can’t be true to myself, they don’t mean anything.”
