Bruce Jenner sacks Kris as manager; she's reportedly not happy

Bruce Jenner has sacked Kris Jenner as his manager.

The 65-year-old reality star has cut his ex-wife - with whom he has two daughters, Kendall, 19, and Kylie, 17 - out from the deal for his upcoming TV show which will document his gender transition.

The move has reportedly angered the mother-of-six who has looked after his career since the beginning of 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians'.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Kris is as you see on the show - bossy, nosey and controlling. She didn't want to relinquish control because it makes it harder for her to sort out fees for 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians'."

The decision for Bruce to find a new manager comes just a week after E! announced it had snapped up the show chronicling Bruce's transition, which will be an eight-part series airing this summer.

Executive Vice President, Programming and Development of E! Jeff Olde said: "Bruce is incredibly courageous and an inspiration, and we are proud to be entrusted with this deeply personal and important story.

"This series will present an unfiltered look as Bruce boldly steps into uncharted territory and is true to himself for the first time."

Rumours of the father-of-six's desire to become a woman were confirmed last month during a sit-down interview with Diane Sawyer, and he now feels "relieved" to have his secret out in the open.

A source said: "He's relieved. He feels like a big weight is off his shoulders.

"More and more, and certainly in private, Bruce is living as a woman. He seems confident and relaxed. Recently, he's left his house with nail polish and lip gloss. He seems more comfortable in his new life."
