Bruce Jenner has not had an easy start to 2015, but the Kardashian and Jenner girls joined together this week to show that they not only love their father, but are willing to support him through the tough times. Surrounded by his daughters, Bruce is all smiles in the latest photo the celebrity clan uploaded to Instagram recently. UPI Entertainment News reveals this Tuesday, Jan. 20, that while fame and fortune may be the name of the Kardashian game, family does indeed come first.
It was only several weeks ago that Bruce finalized his divorce from his ex-wife Kris Jenner, but there doesn’t seem to be any tension among the couple’s children. The Kardashian and Jenner sisters looked sexy and fashionable as ever in a new photo that Khloe shared online. Suffice it to say that their popularity is even stronger in the New Year — within a matter of hours, the photo garnered nearly 800,000 “likes” and thousands of encouraging comments.
There is little question that Bruce could use a little love at the moment. The newly divorced 65-year-old has recently been on the brunt end of ridicule and sarcastic criticism, with rumors suggesting that he is undergoing a sex change and becoming a woman in the process. Despite the reality TV family’s continued denial of such claims, a new photo of the star interposed with that of a “Dynasty” actress on the cover of In Touch Magazine was something of a nail in the coffin. It became a viral sensation almost overnight, and apparently caused a rift between the celebrity clan and the tabloid.
Yet all of those worries and woes appear to be forgotten this week in the popular family photo, notes a report from the Huffington Post. The past Olympic champ is looking very much appreciated by his two teen daughters, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, while Bruce is also embraced by Khloe, Kourtney, and Kim Kardashian. The caption for such a fitting picture of the content sisters and dad? “Family,” says the press release.
Despite all of the jeers sent Bruce Jenner’s way this week, he has had quite a few people standing firmly in his corner as well. The Kardashian patriarch was backed by none other than Russell Brand this week, who says that all of the cruel laughter — regardless of whether the transgender claims are true or not — is making fun of something that should not be mocked in the first place. Transphobia is a serious issue that needs to be handled sensitively and respectfully.
“Transphobia seems to be the most recent accepted and encouraged form of prejudice, now that racism and homophobia are not tolerated,” he said on his popular web series recently, The Trews. “What this does is it sanctions being judgmental and cruel toward transgender folks.”
What do you think of Bruce’s new photo with his family in Instagram? The divorced celebrity man certainly looks confident and happy alongside the Jenner and Kardashian girls. He and ex-wife Kris had an impressive 22 years of marriage together before they separated back in late October. The Jenner matriarch is now dating Corey Gamble, and both stars have seemingly moved on with their lives. Hopefully, the rest of the world focusing on his alleged “woman” drama will do the same.
