Kim K is all upset that Bruce Jenner is filling the tabloids as she gets moved off the front cover. Some people suggest that Kim is devastated about it because she wants to be in the magazines, according to Canada Journal. A few close friends say Kim is actually jealous.

Recently, however, the buzz surrounding his changing appearance veered from quiet speculation to outright sensationalism after InTouch ran a highly transphobic cover of the athlete.

The Kardashian women have been quick to show their support for Jenner. Last week, Khloe shared an Instagram of him flanked by his two daughters and three stepdaughters, with the caption “Family First.” Today, Kim Kardashian further addressed the rumors in an interview on Entertainment Tonight, according to The Inquisitr.

The anchor asked Kim Kardashian, who was there to promote her new T-Mobile Super Bowl ad, what was going on with Bruce.

“We support Bruce 100%,” she said. “On this one, I will say that I think Bruce should tell his story his way.” She continued her measured response by saying that Jenner will share his story whenever the time is right. “He’s the happiest I’ve ever seen him!” Kim added.

However, the reality queen feels ignored by the magazines that her core audience reads — even if she pretends they don’t matter. And it’s been made worse because her former stepfather has been all over the celebrity glossies for weeks.

“Kim has only been on one and a half (tabloids) covers in 2015,” said an industry insider, meaning that while In Touch magazine dedicated a whole cover to her, she shared the front of Star with sister Khloe.

“Neither Life & Style, OK!, Us Weekly nor People have had her on their cover once this year,” added the source. “But Bruce has been on four In Touch covers, two Us Weekly covers and a People cover.”

While Kim Kardashian has hardly been starved for media attention, having posed naked ad nauseam on the cover of up-market magazines like Paper and Love, the insider says while those outlets promote her bottom, they don’t do a lot for her bottom line.

“Bruce is getting the attention and the only time people show her is when she’s naked on magazine covers, which is fine, but she needs to sell brands and products. It’s not like she makes anything off of Paper mag,” said the source. “She still needs to sell her Sears collection. She still needs the mainstream press.”

Bruce Jenner is set to tell his story on an upcoming episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, according to Fashion&Style. In the meantime, Kim will just have to adjust with the tabloids. There’s a new trend on the horizon.
