Report: Caitlyn Jenner to pose nude for Sports Illustrated
NEW YORK — Caitlyn Jenner will grace the cover of an upcoming Sports Illustrated issue wearing nothing but “an American flag and her Olympic medal,” a source told US Weekly.
The nude photo shoot will commemorate the 40th anniversary of her gold medal win during the 1976 Montreal Summer Games, when the now 66-year-old set a decathlon record.
Jenner, who came out as a woman last year, accepted the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ESPYS in July.
As inspiring as her transition has been for some, Jenner’s outspoken Republican views have made her the target of criticism for others. Jenner has also stated publicly that she is not a spokeswoman for anyone but herself.
Already square in the media spotlight, she recently made news by slamming Ted Cruz for supporting North Carolina’s so-called transgender “bathroom bill” that would keep her from using the women’s bathroom.
After Donald Trump invited Jenner to use the women’s bathroom in one of his New York buildings, she took him up on it, even posting a video to Facebook, titled “Bathroom Break.”
