Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and Olympic Gold Medalist, Bruce Jenner was spotted out and about yesterday with a bandaged up nose. The media latched on to the story and automatically assumed that he had gone under the knife for cosmetics reasons, since he had so open about cosmetic procedures in the past.
But the reason is much scarier than a nose job. For the second time in 2 years, Bruce Jenner had to have skin cancer removed from his face. In 2012, the avid outdoorsman had a chunk of skin cancer removed from the side of his face and doctors warmed him to take better precautions when heading out in the sun.
No one knows if this was preexisting or if Bruce did not heed the advice of his doctors. But this time, according to family sources who spoke to TMZ, Bruce had cancerous “tissue removed from his nose on Monday … and the procedure required 30 stitches.” Let’s get this man a higher SPF and a hat!
When it rains it pours for the cast of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Khloe’s marriage continues to be in crisis, with her and her husband of nearly 4 years, Lamar Odom, continuing to live separate lives. Khloe is filming season 9 of their hit E! reality show, while Lamar continues to struggle with a potentially deadly crack addiction. Kim’s baby daddy, Kanye West has also recently been charged with Criminal Battery from an incident at LAX.
But this family has been through the ringer before, and we are sure they will come out on top. Although Bruce will probably have a large scar on the side of his nose, family sources say he is “doing okay now”. So hopefully this will be Bruce Jenner’s last brush with skin cancer.
Do you think that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians cameras were rolling when Bruce had the skin cancer removed? Leave a comment below and let us know.
