Following reports that Bruce Jenner finally went under the knife to reduce the appearance of his Adam’s apple, the 64-year-old Olympian is showing off his neck for the very first time. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was spotted filming scenes on Monday, February 10, sporting shoulder-length hair and an unbuttoned polo.
The outing comes just three weeks after Bruce underwent the procedure at Beverly Hills Surgical Center on January 19. Bruce was photographed leaving the medical building with bandages around his neck, then said goodbye to his nurses before hopping into a car.
Of course, the rumor mill’s been churning since news of the procedure was first leaked to the press. The craziest of the stories: that Bruce is taking the first step towards becoming a woman. “The laryngeal shave is, in many cases, part of gender-reassignment surgeries,” says cosmetic surgeon Michael Jones. “But that’s not the only reason to have it.”
Given the nature of the gossip that surrounds the Kardashians, we have to take these rumors with a major grain of salt. After all, Bruce himself revealed that he’s simply “never liked [his] trachea.”
To many outsiders, a laryngeal shave seems like a pretty serious fix to something you just don’t like. However, Bruce’s sons Brody and Brandon (from his previous marriage to Linda Thompson) reportedly blame Kris Jenner for their father’s addiction to surgery. “The boys don’t think their father is trying to become a woman and they simply laugh at the rumors,” a source reveals to RadarOnline.com. “Kris always encouraged Bruce to have his face nipped and tucked. [...] The Adam’s apple surgery is just following in that pattern.”
