Bruce Jenner and the Kardashians Get Attacked
Even by their own admission, it’s been a tough week for the Kardashian clan. Bruce Jenner was insulted by a US magazine which mocked his increasingly feminine appearance, while Khloé sent a rude message to her troubled brother Rob and Kylie Jenner made her mum Kris aware of just how little she respected her authority and influence as a parent.
Bruce Bruised by Make-up Mockery
Bruce Jenner, 65, had been enjoying his life post-Kris by reconnecting with his sons and indulging in some major sports recreation. But that tranquil time was brutally cut short by In Touch magazine, which angered the star by mocking him on its front cover with a pic digitally altered to feminise his features and make it appear he was wearing make-up. The gossip mag insisted the former Olympian had been receiving treatment to make his chiselled features softer and rather cheekily mocked up an image of how it thought he might look in the future. The controversial pic shows Bruce’s face morphed into that of former Dynasty actress Stephanie Beacham, and within hours of the mag hitting shelves a distraught Bruce was caught on camera looking stressed and upset.

Kris lashes out at Magazine firm
Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner no longer lives with Bruce, but she’s taken his crushed feelings to heart and has vowed never to work with In Touch publisher Bauer again or appear in any of the media giant’s titles. A source told New York Daily News: “They won’t get any real quotes from the family and will be banned from Kardashian-Jenner red carpets, premieres and fashion events.” The threat of no longer getting preferential treatment from Kris hasn’t scared the magazine at all, though, and another insider claims: “In Touch doesn’t care if the Kardashians don’t speak to them. They felt betrayed, anyway, that the family used them to get famous, then dumped them.”
Kris is fuming!
Brody & Brandon Stand by Their Dad
The Jenner/Kardashian kids are also rallying around Bruce, and his sons Brandon and Brody have been quick to defend their father. A source told Radar.com: “The magazine cover didn’t come as a surprise to the brothers, but they both feel it’s very insensitive. Both Brandon and Brody are both very strong supporters. They’re standing by their dad through this.” The insider went on to say that: “[The boys] will continue to support Bruce and their feelings for him won’t change.” Meanwhile, Khloé has tried to reassure her mother that the offending magazine cover is not the end of the world and that the family, who have had their fair share of problems, will be fine. She sent Kris a huge bouquet of flowers with a card that read: “Everything will fall into place, and until then we’ll have Belvedere. I love you, Mum.”
