Bruce Jenner loves cross dressing, claims Robert Kardashian’s last wife


Star Magazine has an upcoming interview with the late Robert Kardashian’s last wife, Ellen, 63. Ellen spills the beans on a lot of secrets she learned about the Kardashians. Kaiser has one tidbit coming up that’s a doozy, but that we’ve already suspected for some time. Ellen was friends with Bruce Jenner’s first wife Chrystie Crownover. She claims that Chrystie told her that Bruce loved to cross dress by wearing her bras and special ordering women’s heels in his size.

The Kardashian women are famous for their extravagant red carpet outfits, expensive jewelry and global fashion collections, but it’s not just the female members of the reality TV family that love to dress up, as Star magazine can exclusively reveal.

Robert Kardashian’s former wife, Ellen, claims that Bruce Jenner, 62, has a secret fetish for wearing women’s clothing, shoes and lingerie, according to the new issue of Star.

Ellen learned of the bombshell over drinks with Bruce’s ex, Chrystie, who spilled the beans on his cross-dressing alter ego.

“’Of course Bruce was every woman’s heartthrob when he was that age, right?’” Ellen says she asked. “But Chrystie said, ‘Yeah, until I went on a trip and I came back and he had gone through all my clothes. And I found my bras… He’d clip them together and wear them.’

“I couldn’t live with that,” she confessed.

Chrystie went on to divorce Bruce, but his next wife, Kris Jenner, was unfazed by her husband’s odd taste, and Ellen tells Star that he continued to cross-dress for years after their wedding.

But her daughters weren’t as accepting about finding size 13 heels in their mom’s closet!

“Khloe called her dad and she was very upset, crying and screaming about it,” revealed Ellen.

[From Radar]

In the video interview posted with Ellen on Radar, she tells a slightly different story about how she found out that Bruce was a cross dresser. She says that her husband Robert told her after Khloe called him up hysterical at finding a closet filled with wigs, size 13 shoes, and clothes that were too big for her mother.

I consider this a kink that is totally harmless if both parties are OK with it, and I would bet that Kris definitely is. People are into all sorts of weird sh*t to get off and having my man dress up in women’s clothes seems strange to me and I probably wouldn’t continue a relationship with a cross dresser, but in no way would I shame a guy about it or blab about it to anyone but my best friend. (I would have to tell her because it would be hysterical to us, but she’s good at keeping secrets.) Chrystie was married to Bruce for 8 years, from 1972-1980, and they had two children together. It sounds like he didn’t share this side of himself until after they were married, and that it was a deal breaker for her. I think it’s weird, but I also feel sorry for Bruce that this very embarrassing news is coming out now. Of all the Kardashian Klan (apart from Khloe maybe) he seems the most harmless. You know that Kris calls the shots and Bruce is just along for the ride.

    that might explain his face……..

  2. Marjalane says:

    Hmmmmm. Can’t give him a pass. Not for the cross-dressing,but for the face. It’s all coming together though- maybe he just wants to “be” a woman.(?)

    • Petunia says:

      That thought crossed my mind too when I heard about the cross dressing. Because the cross dresser that I knew didn’t jack his face up or tweeze his eyebrows. He looked like a guy – who happened to like crossdressing.

    • The Bobster says:

      It wouldn’t surprise me if he went out on the town in drag.

      Hey Danny Bonnaduce, have I got a “girl” for you!

  3. cr says:

    His face, oh his face. He and Shane Warne … (shudders).

  4. Lantana says:

    Probably at home Kris puts on a suit and tie and Bruce puts on a dress and heels and they get along just fine.

  5. Lauren says:

    Is it me or does he look pretty good in the first pic…. ?

    • Lisa says:

      No…you aren’t wrong…I was thinking the SAME thing…he’s either settled into whatever he did before…or he found a surgeon whose talents are superlative to fix what I thought was unfixable…either way…he looks a LOT better…

      Regarding the cross-dressing rumors…if his wife likes it…I love it!

      • Joey says:

        Good for you what business is itof anyone else’s. Like they do not do things others would find wierd.

    • Hautie says:

      Bruce does look good in these pictures.

      It looks like he did not go bargaining shopping for a plastic surgeon this time.

      And the terrible work from the previous one, has been repaired.

      I do not understand why anyone would care about some harmless cross dressing. He is grown. And if Kris doesn’t mind, then it is nobodies business.

      As long as he was not driving the kids to Sunday school in his best wig and heels, then more power to him.

    • Snowpea says:

      Ummm, that man has a face full of foundation and rouge for gods sake!

      What is wrong with these people? Gosh, I’m so glad I’m little old me, in my apartment on the beach with my kids and our dog…

      …between Tom Cruise, Bruce Jenner and Arnold and the housekeeper, Hollywood is full of mad people!

  6. ladybert62 says:

    What a creepy face he has – I can totally see that face in women’s clothes and makeup on – but then I would not want him in my bedroom or bed. Yuk.

    • Petunia says:

      I guess it really is a matter of taste. Some people here seem to find it fine, some probably find it a turn on. Me, I’m with you, it would be a turn off. I’ve nothing against role playing but guys just don’t look good or sexy in women’s things – to me.

  7. Zelda says:

    His cross-dressing is harmless.
    His plastic surgery is scarring all of us.

  8. Mila says:

    I am not surprised.

    Kaiser, Celebitchy could you guys feature more Eva Green or Rhona Mitra?
    Thank you.

  9. Elizabeth says:

    It seems harmless enough (for someone else’s man, not mine) and if Kris is OK with it (God knows the woman has enough freaky tendencies all by herself – glass houses, rocks, you understand?), then its between them. It is weird however because he build his fame on his Olympic decathalon track and field gold medal. Didn’t cross-dress on that box of Wheaties, did you, Bruce!

  10. dorothy says:

    It’s official. The transformation is complete. Not only has Bruce had to hand over his balls to Kris, he now wearing her clothes. She has made him into a girl.

  11. Feva says:

    He was married to Brody Jenner’s mom after his first marriage. Kris Jenner is his third wife. You’d think Star would check wikipedia.

    • deltona lakes says:

      I was thinking the same thing. Didn’t he divorce his 2nd wife and she found she was pregnant when he hooked up with linda thompson who was also pregnant? She decided against an abortion. I believe the children are about the same age.

    • deltona lakes says:

      I’m sorry I meant to say his first wife who was Christie and 2nd wife was linda thompson who later married Music Producer David Foster. They both were pregnant at the same time.

  12. SHump76 says:

    Can’t we just pretend these people don’t exist already? I know, I know, don’t click on the link but…. UGH. They’re just the WORST.

  13. Redheadwriter says:

    So Ellen married Kris’s ex-husband and was best friends with Bruce’s first wife? There aren’t more people in California to choose from than these two families?

  14. RocketMerry says:

    And this is embarassing because…?
    I honestly don’t find this weird. It seems like simple curiosity: being exploration-inclined towards a part of the clothing and styling world that is precluded to men.
    Everybody finds acceptable that women would want to wear men’s clothes, but the contrary is disgusting? Eh.

    • Iggles says:

      Because of gender roles. It’s more “socially” acceptable for women to wear men’s clothes than the reverse. Girls who are tomboys get way less grief than boys who are feminine. It’s an absolute double standard but that’s the answer to your question.

      That said, it is outside of a norm for a man to be a crossdresser so the majority of people would not be okay with it. Personally, I don’t think it’s disgusting – to each their own – but I wouldn’t want to date a man who does. My reason, I’m attracted to masculinity so a guy who is overly feminine is a turn off – whether he crossdresses or not.

      • RocketMerry says:

        I got that, I’m just saying it’s silly, to me, to ridiculize men for wanting to explore a side of their own personality through clothes.
        Gender issues would be less extreme and psicologically hurtful if people did not consider them “disgusting”.

      • Iggles says:

        Ah, I agree with you 100%

    • Emily says:

      I’ve never understood this, either. Women have been wearing pants since WWII, but apart from a few cultural examples (Scottish kilts, religious robes), men are ridiculed if they put on a skirt. RuPaul for president, I say.

    • Petunia says:

      Okay, here’s my take on it, for what it’s worth. Feel free to agree, disagree, whatever.

      Women are naturally the better looking of the sexes overall. They can pretty much wear anything and look hot when young. Young woman in boys clothing looks cute, cuddly, sexy. Young man in women’s clothing looks – eh, feh. Not good. Older guy in women’s clothing – Yikes.

      I get that other people enjoy it and like to explore and its harmless. It’s just an unappealing option to me but hey, it’s a big world out there and people can do what they want if it’s harmless.

  15. Maritza says:

    First we find out Khloe is not a Kardasian and now Bruce Jenner cross dresses! This sounds like great ratings for their show. It seems to me the Kardasians are here to stay, ugh!

    • constance says:

      If the story has some truth, how f–ked is it that Khloe called “not-the-father” hysterical over her “real-father’s” closet cross dressing.

      I don’t want to laugh but I can’t help it.

      I don’t think anyone really cares if he likes dresses and panties. Tom Cruise is fist pumping for potential converts.

  16. AlaskaJoey says:

    Ellen is a money grubbing hosebeast. What was the point of her telling the world this? I didn’t need to know this.

    • TG says:

      I am more bothered by the fact that this woman is telling deeply personal stuff about someone she shouldn’t be talking about. It is one thing if his ex came out with a book or if Bruce or Kris Jenner blabbed to the press but this is not Ellen’s story to tell and she is a loser. And how old was Khloe when she supposedly called Robert crying about size 13 shoes? Do kids really pay attention to their parents shoe size? Why would this girl be going thru her mom’s closet looking at shoe sizes?

      • Mari says:

        Of course they would get into her mother’s closet and try on the clothes and shoes! That is natural, they are fashion freaks and are close to their mom and as teens I get them reviewing their mom’s wardrobe.

  17. teehee says:

    As if that was bad?
    Its a lot more common than apparently most people realize, if they are shocked by this or upset by it in any way. But its best they dont find out what all else is possible too, because cross dressing is pretty safe in comparison.
    Oh and btw Ive seen men in mens suits and womens heels– it actually looks surprisingly stylish!
    Next story…

  18. lucy2 says:

    Anyone married to that money grubbing famewhore would need to blow off some steam. If that involves heels and wigs, so be it.

    Best headline I saw yesterday? “Kim Kardashian replaced by dog.” I didn’t even read the story, the headline was good enough for me.

  19. sheri says:

    The only good thing about this story…the Kardashians are definitely on their way down. Another story today about Khloe not being a Kardashian, more concrete than past stories, But the most important, KMart and Sears going belly up, their clothing line is going down. Too bad they are taking American institutions with them, but when you lie with dogs you get fleas.

  20. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    Maybe he and Kelsey Grammar can share clothes?

  21. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    Kris kross dresses like a dude all the time so what’s the big deal?

  22. OXA says:

    I know the Klan is Krazy but this woman’s claims do not ring true. She completely ignored any mention of his second wife Linda Thompson, the mother of Brody and the others.

  23. Photo Jojo says:

    Man I’d love it if they came out and said “yep, so what?”

  24. truthful says:

    THAT’s the reason he puts up w/their crap and doesn’t care about their money grubbing dumb antics.

    I have heard this for years though.

    I want to say something raunchy about their roles in th bedroom, but I won’t.

    I couldn’t, but whatever floats your boat.

    he’s the true prisoner.

    THIS woman was close friends with THIS wife, why would she mention anything about Linda when she knows nothing about her? she is not trying to get sued, cause Linda would in a heartbeat.

    I’m still pissed at Kris for prompting his first face lift that changed is face completely away from the face everyone knew.

  25. Lisa says:

    I think I’ve heard this story before. If I’m not mistaken, Khloe or one of them outted him in a KUWTK episode. But I’m pretty sure I’ve heard this before.

  26. Cathy says:

    His face kind of looks like the mannequin Buster from the show Mythbusters.

  27. Bobby the K says:

    She wears the pants.

  28. Rita says:

    I have a confession to make. Yup, right here for all to read. I need to come clean.

    I’m a cross dresser. Occasionally, I put on my husbands pants and look in the mirror…..I feel thinner in them.

    Okay, go ahead. I can take it. Shank me like the cross dressing haters you are.

    • Scarlet Vixen says:

      Rita! You dirty, dirty girl…

      I wear men’s clothes all the time. I feel comfier in them. I even have men’s shoes. I’m apparently even kinkier than I thought.

    • the original bellaluna says:

      *takes place next to Rita in “to be shanked” line* You are so funny, Rita!

      I’ve worn men’s shirts & suit jackets for YEARS. I have long arms, and when I needed business-wear, found the choices for women lacking.

      I also buy men’s athletic shoes, because they’re a lot less expensive than women’s!

      • Rita says:

        They really do stick us on the shoes, don’t they? (“stick us” can be a good thing or a bad thing. In this case, its a bad thing).

  29. NO SH¡T says:

    Bruce has NO balls or spine so I totally see this as being true perfect man for Kris.

  30. reddmasters says:

    Well for heaven’s sake, SOMEONE had to be the woman in this marriage, why not Bruce?

  31. Jay says:

    So personally I’d like to believe what’s OK in a couple’s relationship is no one else’s business, but what if the spouse is not OK? Seems that Chrystie was not OK and had it sprung on her AFTER they were married and needed someone to talk to. I can’t blame her for that. I know someone who only found out her husband was a frequent crossdresser when he suddenly put on her wedding gown on their wedding night. She was pretty innocent and was upset and didn’t know what to think. Just because many consider it harmless doesn’t mean it has to be her taste. She needed someone to talk to. Seems that’s likely how it originally got shared here, and it was just a “and she told two friends and so on” from there.

  32. the original bellaluna says:

    All joking aside, this is something she had absolutely no business revealing. Especially to a tabloid. It’s a private, personal matter that’s between him & his current wife.

    • Kim says:

      Thats why its called a tabloid.

      BUT if he finds nothing wrong with it why would he care if it came out? Because he knows its not normal thats why.

      • the original bellaluna says:

        Because he’s not the one giving out the info. If he wanted it out there, he’d have put it out there.

  33. Lauren says:

    @LilyB haha ur welcome ;)

  34. ol cranky says:

    I hear that Robert Kardashian’s post Kris ex-wives are now telling the tabloids that Kardashian told them he was not Khloe’s biological father.

    As much as I hate the Kardashian-Jenner famewhore brigade, it is utterly reprehensible for those women to make that information public if it’s true (it’s beyond reprehensible if it’s not true). Regardless of who her biological father is or isn’t, nobody should hear that their parent has said or thought anything like that. He’s the man that raised her as her father and that’s what makes him her father.

    As for Bruce Jenner needing to special order heels, couldn’t he just borrow Khloe’s? she’s a tall girl, she must have big feet

  35. Holly Hobby says:

    He looks like a melted candle. All that work on his face was so unnecessary. He was married another time between Christy and Kris. His second wife was Linda Thompson – financee or girlfriend of Elvis toward the end of his life. Former wife of producer David Foster. Mother of Brodie Jenner.

    David Foster alluded in his bio that Linda pretty much put a wedge between him and his daughters from another marriage. She didn’t like to share him with his other family. She wanted him to focus on Brody and whatever kid she brought to the marriage.

    Bruce sure knows how to pick em!

  36. Kelly says:

    I wasn’t going to read this story, but I saw it on Dlisted, and had to run back here to see if you were able to post any pictures of the Timeless Beauty that is Ellen Kardashian! If you guys haven’t seen her, check her out. http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2012/01/ellen-kardashian-khloe-robert-who She looks like a German lesbian dominatrix schoolmarm.

    ETA: I read the article more closely – apparently Ellen was left penniless; she’s filed for Chap. 7 and her house was foreclosed on last year. Hmmmm…. time to make a few bucks off others’ dirty laundry, apparently!

  37. MIDRED_PIERCE says:

    I read ages ago that Bruce wanted to transition to a female permanently but was talked out of it. Seeing this revelation and if true, I wonder if there is something more to this story that the tabloids have held back on?

  38. DreamyK says:

    Cross dressing is no big deal. The big deal is that he was trying to wear a bra that clearly didn’t fit him properly. They just don’t look right if you don’t get the correct size.

    Get after it Bruce. Nothing wrong with men embracing their femme side or women embracing their masculine side.

    • Kim says:

      UMM cross dressing isnt normal! Doing it once to see what it feels like to wear high heels or a bra is one thing but to do it repeatedly isnt normal at all.

      There are MANY ways to embrace your male/female side without having to wear the other sexes clothes.

      • Kelly says:

        WTFFFFF???? are you serious? I guess in a country where Rick Santorum could be considered a serious candidate, I suppose you could be serious.

        But honestly, who are you to say what’s normal? It’s fine to say it’s not your thing, it’s fine to say you don’t like it (I certainly don’t like it!) but sexuality is a huge spectrum, and it’s not really up to you to establish the limits thereof.

  39. DuBarry says:

    Why does he look like the Bicentennial Man?

  40. Whatever you want it to be says:

    Don’t really care, as you said it’s a harmless kink but I think in a weird way this may explain his passive attitude and how he seemed to just do as he was told by Kris, (I’m sorry, I watched the f–king show). Maybe he wants to keep her happy so she’ll never spill all the dirt which she’d obviously not be above doing.

  41. Kim says:

    He should hook up with Kelsey Grammer-haha!

  42. Kim says:

    Well he did marry a “woman” (Kris) who looks & dresses like a man.

  43. TexasTexasTexas says:

    Beyond horrid for an ex to discuss such personal info. Cross-dressing is harmless, and Bruce looks like a hottie now.

  44. Floridaseaturtle says:

    ITA, should never have been brought up publicly, if even true. Who cares. Bruce seems like he is/has tried, to be a good father and husband, but it is a little obvious he doesn’t always wear the pants. IMO, Tramp Maddam Momma hooked him long ago with her ‘skills’, ‘marketing’ and otherwise. I am sure there is WHOLE story. Sorry, but even…remember his hair, I think Wheatie’s era? Didn’t he and Dorothy Hamill, Toni Tenille sport the same style? just sayin..

  45. Bambi says:

    I’m tripping out because back in 1978 when Bruce was on the Wheaties box, I never would have guessed that decades later I’d be looking at a photo of Bruce (on something called “the internet,” no less) with his features feminized by plastic surgery, reading that he liked to cross dress. Go, Bruce!

    Anyway, I agree that he looks much better now.

  46. Snowflake says:

    So we are believing a story from a crap magazine like Star? not me.

  47. jamie says:

    his face reminds me of one of them painted puppets!Why do people always think they look better screwing with their faces …yikessssss he’s creepy!

  48. whatevs says:

    oh god his rhinoplasty and lip collagen is ridic looking… why do rich people get ridiculous surgeries? i mean you gotta live with that face everyday

  49. Laura says:

    Eh, whatever makes him happy. Some guys I know that cross dress say it’s more the feeling of the materials against their skin that turns them on than the wearing of women’s clothes per se…Not a lot of garments for men are as silky, lacy, etc as women’s are.
    I wouldn’t care if a boyfriend of mine cross dressed provided A. He didn’t wear my things, B. He wasn’t overly feminine outside of that, and C. He didn’t dress up in front of or around me (knowing he enjoyed it wouldn’t turn me off, but seeing it would).
