Being a teenager is riddled with uncertainty and strife, but teens Kendall and Kylie Jenner's angst has been magnified because of their father's recent physical transformation in which he's sporting longer hair and nails, and the decision Bruce Jenner made to have his Adam's apple shaved down, leaving his daughters extremely confused, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
Even though their momager, Kris Jenner, has denied reports that Bruce is going to undergo a sex change, "Kylie and Kendall just don't know what to think. It's extremely confusing for them to grasp. There is just no denying Bruce's recent physical changes, and he does look more feminine," the source told Radar.
"It's been especially hard for 16-year-old Kylie because some of her friends have made jokes about Bruce's looks. The ridicule aimed at Bruce's looks on social media has also taken a toll on Kendall and Kylie. Kendall continues to spend time with her dad, while Kylie hasn't been hanging out as much with Bruce, unless it's for filming."
Speaking of changed, Bruce emerged on Monday afternoon with what appeared to be new hair plugs and a hot ombre hair color.
“While the boys haven’t come out and asked their dad if he is transitioning to becoming a woman, it has definitely crossed their minds. However, as long as Bruce is happy, that is all they really care about," the insider said.
"Brody has been spending a lot of time with his dad, and the two have never been closer. If Bruce did decide to become a woman, Brody and Brandon would absolutely support him. All they know is that their dad is in a really good place right now, and that is all that matters.”
Jenner has denied that the laryngeal shave had anything to do with a sex change, insisting he simply did not like its appearance.
Brody and Brandon blamed Kris for introducing plastic surgery to the family.
“They do believe that Bruce became more conscience of his physical appearance and how he looked after Keeping Up With The Kardashians premiered,” the insider explained.
“They blame their step-mother (Kris) for all of the plastic surgery he has had over the years.
“Kris always encouraged Bruce to have his face nipped and tucked. He has had plastic surgery to remove excess fat above his eyelids. The Adam’s apple surgery is just following in that pattern.”
Dealing with their parents separation has been "hard for the girls...they have always been closer to their dad because Kris had been busy for so many years with their older half-sisters. It was always Bruce driving the girls to and from school," the source added.
"He wants to spend time with them, but it's hard for them to get all the way over Malibu where he is living. Plus, they would much rather be with their friends, which is typical for teenagers. Still, they miss their dad, and just don't know what to say about what is going on with him."
