Scott Disick Supports Bruce Jenner Coming Out On 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' In His Typical, Loving Way
Ever since Bruce Jenner revealed that "for all intents and purposes I am a woman," he's received an enormous amount of support from his family members both in person and in the media. But one member of Jenner's family has stayed silent. In the weeks after Jenner's Diane Sawyer interview, Scott Disick never made an official statement on the matter like the rest of his family. So Sunday's Keeping Up With The Kardashians: About Bruce was the first time the public got to see how Scott Disick reacted to Bruce Jenner coming out. During the special, Scott showed nothing but support for Bruce, though of course it was infused with his typical Lord Disick playfulness.
Scott handled things in stride, expressing the most shock at the fact that he was the last person in the Kardashian-Jenner family to know. However, he quickly explained that he understands why Bruce didn't share this sooner, as it's clearly a difficult revelation to share. Kourtney, meanwhile, revealed that she simply hadn't told anyone about Bruce's gender identity after it was shared with her.
Scott only had positive things to say to Bruce once he did learn of his transition, saying, "it was difficult to hear he was going through something, I just want him to be happy.” Throughout the years Bruce and Scott may have had their bumps in the road, but at the end of the day, they'll always be pals who really love helicopters.
While Scott did handle the news well and provide support, he had some questions for Bruce that weren't the most politically correct, but were pure LD. "Are you gonna be the butchiest girl ever?" Scott asked, referring to Bruce's hobbies of golf and other sports. Bruce simply laughed, and explained that he still likes golf. Some of Scott's other questions, however, were much more serious, and got to the heart of Bruce's struggles. For example, Scott asked if it was difficult for Bruce to always be surrounded by women, when he was hiding the fact that he is one, and Bruce confirmed that it was.
The most touching part of their conversation came towards the end, when Scott said something I'm sure all of us who support Bruce have been thinking: that Bruce's coming out can help the transgender community. Scott complimented Bruce's speaking skills, and said he "could do a lot of good...help a lot of people" who have also struggled with gender identity.
Scott isn't exactly known to be the most quiet or respectful Kardashian, so it was reassuring to see him offer Bruce nothing but love and his support, with some signature lightheartedness. In fact, he described Bruce's journey in one of the most beautiful ways I've ever heard, saying, "you're gonna live two lives in one lifetime." And Bruce is going to help countless other people along the way.
