A representative for Caitlyn Jenner, who announced her transition from a man to a woman last year, is denying reports that Jenner is considering de-transitioning, New York Daily News reports.
The de-transitioning claim came from biographer Ian Halperin. Halperin is the author of “Kardashian Dynasty: The Controversial Rise of America’s Royal Family.”
The author told TheWrap that several sources told him that the former Olympian — once known as Bruce Jenner — has been miserable for months and has considered transitioning back to a man.
“Once source confirmed to me Caitlyn has made whispers of ‘sex change regret,’ hinting she might go back to being Bruce Jenner,” Halperin told TheWrap.
“It hasn’t been easy for Caitlyn, it’s been very hard,” the friend said, according to Halperin. “She’s thrilled she has raised awareness about how transgender people have long been discriminated against but I think there’s a chance she’ll de-transition in the next couple years. I don’t think it would surprise anybody in her inner circle. It has been much harder than she anticipated.”
“Not worth commenting on such an idiotic report,” Jenner’s rep told the New York Daily News after TheWrap’s report came out. “Of course it’s not true. “
