Sources have said the former U.S. Olympic Decathlon champion became a bit emotional while telling Khloe, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian and Kylie and Kendall Jenner January 19, according to a local tabloid.
The insider said the conversation was not jaw-dropping. However, the taped conversation will be aired on episode 13 of this season’s Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
The insider said Jenner started his conversation with the girls by saying, “I am becoming a woman.”
He also asked his five daughters to please do two things: One stop calling him Bruce and use the name he has chosen. Second, if questions are asked he wanted them to say that Bruce was at a very good, happy place.
However, not in the taped conversation was if the 65-year old would undergo surgery called sex reassignment. One source said Jenner’s daughters did not want to know if he was going to have the surgery.
As has been reported previously, the family has lent its support to Jenner during his transition, which will be in a docu-series on E! An interview where Jenner sits down with Diane Sawyer from ABC will air near the start of summer.
Down the road, Bruce has settled into his home in Malibu and will wear women’s clothes around his home and gradually make slight changes publicly, said one source.
A source who is close to the entire family said that Bruce who is not part of the new E! deal worth $100 million, will make his own finances a top priority, especially after being involved in a fatal car accident February 7.
The source said Jenner was focusing on his income with speaking engagements already quieting down. He was upset for quite some time over the death of a woman in the accident and is aware of a possible lawsuit.
