Kim Kardashian West supports Bruce Jenner's gender transition

Kim Kardashian West says Bruce Jenner has found "inner peace" since announcing his gender transition.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has admitted she doesn't "fully understand" what her stepfather is going through, but insists she doesn't need to and is just glad he is happy.

She said: "I'm really happy for him that he is living his life the way he wants to live it. And that he has found inner peace and just pure happiness. That's what life is about.

"I don't know what life would be like if you always felt like you weren't yourself. I know it's not something that you or I could really fully understand, but I don't even think we have to. As long as he is happy, and he wants to live his life, however he wants to live it, that just makes me happy. And I support him 100 per cent."

The 34-year-old television personality also revealed Bruce, 65, is helping the family to feel as "comfortable as possible" with his decision.

Speaking on The Today Show, she added: "What do we call him? Do we say him or her? How do we be respectful? There's so many different things that you just want to be supportive and you just want to be respectful, and I think that everything takes time.

"I mean, Bruce wants us to feel as comfortable as possible and take everything at our own pace, and we love him for that, and we respect him for that.

"Until that transition is done, we've learned that you do refer to him as him. He's been really, really good at explaining everything to us, even though it's really new. These have been newer feelings - not newer feelings for him, but for us to digest. He's done a really good job of walking us through it."

Bobby Brown wants guardianship over daughter's estate

Bobbi is currently being treated in a medical rehabilitation centre after being found unresponsive in a bath tub on January 31.

Meanwhile, Bobby's lawyer previously confirmed that doctors are currently unsure what kind of "quality" of life Bobbi Kristina will have.

In a statement, Christopher Brown said: "Bobbi Kristina's condition has changed since moving from Emory University Hospital and there has been improvement. Doctors have indicated that she will have a long life.

"However, Bobbi Kristina is presently embarking on a rehabilitation process and the quality of her life will not be known for years to come."

Bobby simply added: "We thank everyone who supports Bobbi Kristina and God is hearing our prayers."

Grandmother Cissy Houston has admitted she is praying for a "miracle".

She said: "Meeting with the doctors and understanding that she can live in this condition for a lifetime truly saddens me. We can only trust in God for a miracle at this time. Keep us in your prayers."

Prince Harry rejected!

Jennifer Lawrence refused a date with Britain's Prince Harry.

The 30-year-old royal was reportedly keen on "snagging a date" with The Hunger Games star but was left disappointed when she politely declined his offer.

A source told Life & Style magazine: "[Harry] made his aide invite her out to dinner and coupled it with an invite for her to see Kensington Palace."

Meanwhile, things are going well between the 24-year-old actress and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, who were seen enjoying a romantic dinner earlier this month.

A source said: "Jennifer arrived first and waited in her car for a bit, then went to the table and sat with her bodyguard until Chris arrived.

"They had a quick lunch: She ate a roast beef sandwich, and he had eggs Benedict.

"Their table faced the courtyard, and people ran outside to take pictures of them, but the bodyguard put a stop to that."

Later that evening, the couple took a stroll hand in hand.

The insider added: "They were talking softly to each other throughout the meal. As they left, she changed shoes and her sweater, and she was overheard telling him she wanted to take a walk through Strawberry Fields, and they left holding hands."
