According to the Independent, Halperin told The Wrap: "One source confirmed to me Caitlyn has made whispers of 'sex change regret,' hinting she might go back to being Bruce Jenner."

He also said one of Caitlyn's longtime friends told him: "It hasn't been easy for Caityln, it's been hard. She's thrilled she's raised awareness about how transgender people have long been discriminated against, but I think there's a chance she'll de-transition in the next couple of years."

Caitlyn's publicist has strongly denied the claim, calling it "idiotic".

Speaking to the NY Daily News, the rep said: "Not worth commenting on such an idiotic report. Of course it's not true."

Caitlyn has flourished since her transition, receiving an ESPY award for bravery as well as a Glamour Woman of the Year award for "Transgender Champion".
