Research for a new book on the Kardashian family has led author Ian Halperin to discover some unexpected news regarding Caitlyn Jenner.
Author of Kardashian Dynasty: The Controversial Rise of America’s Royal Family Halperin told The Wrap that throughout his research, several people claimed Jenner was “miserable for months” following her transition and that she actually might be considering de-transitioning.
“One source confirmed to me Caitlyn has made whispers of ’sex change regret,’ hinting she might go back to being Bruce Jenner,” Halperin said. He added that a friend told him Jenner might even de-transition “in the next couple years.” Jenner herself has said before that she “had a massive panic attack” post-surgery and that she wondered what she had done. But this is perhaps the first time someone has claimed Jenner might plan to de-transition.
Halperin does note, though, that Jenner is happy she was able to raise awareness about the transgender community and open up about her own transitioning process. He also said his sources claimed part of the reason for a potential de-transition could be that Jenner is still interested in finding the right woman. What matters most at the end of the day is, of course, Jenner’s own happiness.
Kardashian Dynasty also apparently includes information claiming Kris was “very aware” that Caitlyn wanted to transition, which contradicts what Kris herself has said. The book also apparently says that Kris “forced [Caitlyn] into religious conversion therapy” as part of an effort to save their marriage.
Kardashian Dynasty sells for a whopping $26. You can read an excerpt from its first chapter here.
