The National Enquirer reports Kathlyn Beatty, the 18-year-old daughter of Warren Beatty and Annette Bening, is planning on undergoing a sex change operation. The eldest of the couple’s four children lives as a man, Stephen Ira, and is a college student. Unnamed sources say Warren is “heartbroken” and “grief-stricken.”
“Warren is beside himself over the situation with his daughter Kathlyn. He and Annette have tired 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 Chastity Bono.”
In 2008, Perez Hilton outed the then-16-year-old Kathlyn in a blind item.
“What teenage daughter of a superstar couple is living life as a transgender boy? Now going by the name Stephen, the teen’s parents pulled him out of the prestigious Buckley School in Los Angeles and are having him home-schooled to keep him out of the public eye.”
So far, no one from the Beatty/Bening camp has commented publicly on the matter. [New York Daily News]
