Kim Kardashian defends Bruce Jenner: he's 'the happiest I've ever seen him'

Kim Kardashian has voiced her support for Bruce Jenner following rumours that he is transitioning to a woman. Speaking for the first time about the reports in an interview on Monday, the reality TV queen told Entertainment Tonight: "I think Bruce is very happy, the happiest I've ever seen him."

She continued: "Of course we support Bruce 100 percent. He's our dad so we support him no matter what, and I think when the time is right, he'll talk about whatever he wants to talk about."

Kim, 34, added: "I will say that I think Bruce should tell his story his way I think everyone goes through things in life and I think that story and what Bruce is going through, I think he'll share whenever the time is right.

In a final show of solidarity, Kim wouldn't open up futher on the subject, explaining that that is for Bruce to do.

"I guess I'll kind of let everyone be curious and I feel like that's his journey to talk about, I just think it's his story to talk about, not really mine."

The Kardashian-Jenners have rallied round their father since the controversial publication of a magazine cover featuring a doctored image of his Bruce’s face.

Bruce was said to be hurt by the magazine cover, although he did not address it publicly. His daughters quickly put up a united and supportive front, posting a picture of themselves with their father.

While Kim spoke candidly and seriously on the subject of her step-father, she reserved a few laughs for her appearance on the Conan show on Monday, when she premiered a new advert that will air during the Super Bowl.

In the new commercial, the Keeping up with the Kardashians star pokes fun at herself as she is shown taking a series of selfies in a range of outfits.

"Hi. I'm Kim. Each month millions of gigs of unused data are taken back by wireless companies. Tragic," she says at the start of the 30-second T-Mobile clip.

"Data you paid for that could be used to see my make-up, my backhand, my outfits, my vacation and my outfits," she continues in a serious tone.
