Bruce Jenner’s stepdaughter Kim Kardashian has broken her silence about his transition to womanhood in a preview of a “Today Show” interview airing Monday, during which the reality star calls it “a hard adjustment.”
“I see reports that say, ‘This one doesn’t support him’ and, ‘This one’s over here, and [Kris Jenner] feels this way,’ and it’s all really so made up,” Kardashian tells Matt Lauer in the clip. “We all really support him. Is it a hard adjustment? Yes.”
Although it was long suspected that Kardashian’s stepfather, a former Olympian, was transgender, he officially declared on Friday during a widely-watched interview with Diane Sawyer that he identifies as a woman.
The “20/20” special that became the highest-rated episode in 15 years, and broke Twitter records, states that Jenner still prefers the pronoun “he” — for the time being, at least.
While speaking about his family, including multiple marriages over the years, Jenner said he “wasn’t as fair as I should have been,” but feels he has “apologized enough.”
When E!’s reality series “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” was brought up, Jenner said: “Over the entire run, I kept thinking to myself, ‘Oh my God. This whole thing, the one real true story in the family was the one I was hiding and nobody knew about it.’ The one thing that could really make a difference in people’s lives was right here in my soul, and I couldn’t tell it.”
Jenner told Sawyer that Kardashian was the most accepting member of the family. Meanwhile she told Lauer “we’re very close,” but also mentions “family therapy.”
