Bruce Jenner's Family

Bruce Suffers from

Michael Jackson Syndrome

2/12/2014 10:39 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0210-bruce-jenner-splashBruce Jenner is NOT changing his identity ... he's just going through a mid-life crisis and is addicted to plastic surgery -- this according to sources close to the Kardashian family and Jenner sons.

Family sources say the klan does not buy what increasingly looks like gender reassignment.  They say Bruce is changing his look because of his "Michael Jackson-like obsession with plastic surgery."  

They say he is struggling to re-gain his youth.  They point to the fact that he's moved to Malibu, grown his hair long and had a ponytail for a long time, drives a Harley, and has changed his nose and neck.

We're told the family has actually counseled him against all the surgery, saying he was a good looking man to begin with, but he wouldn't listen.

They also echo the story TMZ posted Tuesday -- that Bruce is "super manly,"  the family saying, "He loves sports, helicopters and cars."

It's interesting ... because we also know that when Bruce golfs at the Sherwood Country Club he constantly talks about the '76 Olympics where he won gold.  It's also when he was young and great looking, which kind of supports the family's position.

Is he also trying to regain the long painted nails and boobs of his youth?? I have no problem with him becoming a woman, or whatever he is doing, but I have a problem with all these stupid stories about it.

NICE TRY, Kardashian losers.
ALL the explanation means: your family is embarrassed and you're trying to spin the truth.
Once he starts wearing dresses and has boobs, what are you going to say then?

Everybody else in the Jenner and Kardashian family has had plastic surgery, why not Bruce? He's turned into a nasty, evil old man anyway, no matter how he looks.

Mid-Life crisis? The dude is 64 years old. He is way past a mid-life crisis. This man or WOman or whatever you wanna call is sick in the head!

"We're told the family has actually counseled him against all the surgery, saying he was a good looking man to begin with, but he wouldn't listen."

You know why he doesn't listen? It's coming from the Kardashians. Their entire reality show is scripted and lies, and he knows it. Why would he believe ANYTHING they said?

It's too bad those that were teens/young adults when he won the Decathalon in the 76 don't give him an ego boost.. I was a teen then and he made girls drool..
Sad to see he doesn't realize how attractive he was then and he certainly didn't get worse..until the PS

But then again Kim was adorable until she started the plastic surgery.. She was unique- looking before, now she just "Meh"

...Don't down-play it.

...For the media.

Just say Bruce is fighting for his life.

Just say he's going through something devastating.

Just ask for our prayers as Bruce and you walk through this very-tough-period.

I've had break-downs, I know what they are.

I've regained insight.

But it's a dangerous time.

We're there but we're not there.

The worst thing we can do is shove camera's in Bruce's face -

Confront Bruce's family including the Kardashians.

And/or taunt, ridicule the guy.

"Changes-in-perspective" are horrible.

Confusing.

Can't be simply explained.

But applying MORE PRESSURE is the worst possible thing.

-Our prayer's are with Bruce, the Jenner's and the Kardashians.
