Ex-Kardashian bodyguard changes name to Bruce Jenner to save name’s ‘heterosexual roots’

Joseph McCormick April 21, 2016

For the sake of the “heterosexual roots” of the name, and to “keep it alive”, a former bodyguard to the Kardashians has changed his name to Bruce Jenner.

The new Bruce Jenner, formerly known as Mark Behar, used to work for the Kardashian family as a bodyguard, and announced that he had changed his name.

The Palm Beach actor said he wanted people to continue to associate the name with the Olympic medals Caitlyn Jenner won, when she was known by it.

The new Jenner said he is against people thinking the medals were won by Caitlyn Jenner [the actual person who won them].

He said: “This name once stood for America, and I just want to keep it alive.”

Apparently not realising that people aren’t immediately erased from all records after they die, Jenner mk2 added: “I’ve been seeing so many idols and athletes and icons die because of stupid stuff like drugs, die because of age … We’re losing icons. Were losing names. We’re losing people faster than we ever have.”

Jenner worked with the Kardashian family and Caitlyn Jenner on Keeping up with the Kardashians in 2009 and 2010, appearing in one episode in season four of the TV series.

He fought against Caitlyn, who publicly revealed her transition on the cover of Vanity Fair in 2015, in a charity boxing match in the episode.

Apparently having no idea that gender and sexual orientation are not linked, Bruce Jenner went on: “I am not anti-gay and I have no problem with him changing his sex, but the way he did it, in my mind it was not proper. It was all for hype.”

In a bizarre post from January 3 on the Actor/Celebrity Bodyguard & Personal Protection Specialist’s Facebook page, Caitlyn is shown crying with the words ‘Bill Crosby Raped Me’.

He also posted links to a fake news report claiming that Caitlyn ‘asks everyone to call her Bruce again’.

The new Bruce Jenner will be represented by TransMedia Group, by Tom Madden.

Madden issued a statement saying: “We’re representing Mark who is now legally Bruce so the famous Bruce Jenner name will return to its heterosexual roots where our client believes it belongs instead of hanging around out with the likes of the Kardashians and getting into car accidents as Caitlyn.”

“If Caitlyn ever wants to be called Bruce again, he’s a day late, a dollar short,” said Bruce Jenner. “It’s my name now.”
