Caitlyn Jenner has filed papers to legally change her name from Bruce to Caitlyn, and her gender from male to female, her rep confirms to Gossip Cop. Jenner filed court papers on Tuesday in L.A. County Superior Court.

Jenner, however, did not provide some personal information, because she fears physical threats. Among the things that Jenner is afraid of divulging is her medical history, and she’s asking the judge to seal that and other highly confidential information.

As Gossip Cop has reported, the season finale of the E! docuseries “I Am Cait” featured the transgender star having an unofficial re-naming ceremony. As we also noted, a prior episode depicted Jenner learning about the difficult process of getting her name legally changed from Bruce to Caitlyn.

Earlier on Tuesday, Gossip Cop busted a report that claimed Jenner had already undergone gender reassignment surgery. A source close to Jenner exclusively told Gossip Cop it was untrue. And as denoted earlier, if and when Jenner does decide to remove her penis, it will be her business only, not that of a bunch of webloids.
