Kris Jenner recently slammed tabloid rumors about her estranged husband Bruce following reports claiming he underwent surgery.
The Kardashian matriarch, 58, recently appeared on the "Today Show" to promote the new season of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" and she denied rumors claiming Bruce, 64, is considering sex-change surgery. The former Olympic athlete reportedly underwent a "laryngeal shave" procedure to flatten his adam's apple which fueled the bizarre rumors; Kris claims the rumors first began in the 1970s.
"That is not happening," Kris said on "Today." That is a story that they keep regurgitating from the '70s... it's so old!"
Bruce, who announced his separation from Kris last year, previously denied that he is becoming a woman and admitted that he does not like his trachea. Surgery reports remain unconfirmed.
"I just never liked my trachea," he told TMZ.com.
The E! star appears to be moving forward with his life since moving out of his and Kris' marital home in Hidden Hills. A new report claims Bruce is being considered for the next season of ABC's "Dancing With The Stars."
"He's dying to do it,... the show is close to locking him in," a source told Us magazine.
"He would have fun with it," stepson Robert Kardashian said.
Bruce and Kris, married for 22 years, Kris announced their separation after months of speculation in October. He now lives alone in Malibu and admitted to being much happier.
"I was actually over at [Kris'] house today and there were like 20 people over at the house and I'm thinking, 'I've got a nice quiet and peaceful place in Malibu, but yeah it works great and my kids come and its all good,'" he said.
The estranged couple shares two teenage daughters, Kendall and Kylie, and they are said to be on good terms despite the breakdown of their marriage.
