First Cher‘s daughter Chastity (now Chaz) Bono went through a very public sex change.
Now there are reports that Annette Bening and Warren Beatty‘s daughter — Kathlyn Beatty— is also planning a sex change operation to become a male.
The Dish Rag‘s industry sources say this no surprise. “This has been buzzed about in Hollywood for the last two years,” says a source friendly with the family. “It’s absolutely true and it was only a matter of time before someone reported it.”
And now the National Enquirer has done just that. According to the publication, Kathlyn
is currently attending college as a young man, Stephen Ira, and very
much wants to undergo a transition from female to male.
]]>tells the Enquirer. “He and Annette have tried to deal with
this over the years when their daughter was younger, but she’s
determined to go ahead with the transgender operation, just like
Beatty and Bening have been married since 1992
and have four children together, Kathlyn, 18, Benjamin, 16, Isabel, 13
and Ella, 10.
This has got to very difficult for any parent, but especially so when the child is so young.
There has been no comment from the family.
We wish everyone the best and hope that the family’s love and support
will help Kathlyn cope with this very personal, private and emotional issue.
