Caitlyn Jenner, 66, is very happy with her new identity, thank you very much! The I Am Cait star has responded to reports that she’s considering transitioning back into a man due to “sex change regret,” and says the claims are completely ridiculous and NOT true.
“Not worth commenting on such an idiotic report,” Caitlyn’s rep told The Daily News. “Of course it’s not true.” So Caitlyn is here to stay, y’all! The 66-year-old released this statement after Kardashian Dynasty author, Ian Halperin, claimed a friend of the famous family told him about Caitlyn’s alleged ‘regret.’
“It hasn’t been easy for Caitlyn, it’s been very hard,” the friend said. “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. My heart goes out to her and I know her true friends will be there to support her on whatever path she chooses.”
Caitlyn — Bruce at the time — confirmed her transition in an April 2015 tell-all interview with Diane Sawyer. “For all intents and purposes, I am a woman,” Bruce admitted, at the time.
She didn’t officially debut Caitlyn for a few weeks though — the infamous “Call Me Caitlyn” Vanity Fair cover came out at the beginning of June 2015, and from then on, the former Olympian has been living her life as a woman.
Caitlyn’s journey has been documented on her reality series I Am Cait, which recently wrapped its second season. While the whole situation has been very difficult for the Kardashian family, it’s obvious that Caitlyn is SO much happier these days. And hopefully it’ll stay that way!
