Just days before Bruce Jenner's highly anticipated April 24 interview with Diane Sawyer, the ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star made headlines when photos were published of him allegedly wearing a dress.
And while the former Olympian, 65, has yet to confirm or deny claims that he’s undergoing a gender transition, a source close to Bruce tells ‘Radar Online’ he's been living as a woman in his private life.

“He has been getting very nervous because he is afraid of backlash from his fans,” the insider says.
“Bruce has been wearing women’s clothes and lingerie at home almost full-time now, with sons Brandon and Brody visiting and not having any problem with their dad’s changing appearance.”

He reportedly fears that not everyone will be as supportive as his sons.
“This is a very, very confusing time for Bruce, and he has been living two lives,” the insider explains. “Bruce just doesn’t think the world is ready to see him wearing the women’s silk shirts that he prefers to wear.”
Well, there’s at least one person who has his back (regardless of what's on it). And that's his high school sweetheart, Michelle Rosenthal. Bruce's former flame tells ‘Inside Edition’ she was taken aback when she heard news of his alleged transition, but she wishes him nothing but the best.

“I would have never thought that in a million years from knowing him in high school. When it came out in the papers that he was thinking of this, I think everyone was really shocked,” she says.
