*She hasn’t been in the public eye long, but Caitlyn Jenner is already attracting someone with a romantic interest in her.
Chatting with TMZ Sports, Dennis Rodman put his bid in, saying that he would love to go on a date with Jenner…if she’s interested.
As most people not living under a rock know, Jenner has been the hot topic after she officially revealed herself on the cover of the new issue of Vanity Fair. So it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to see that the former Olympian has attracted the attention of Rodman, who was known back in the day for cross-dressing.
Since her introduction on Monday, Jenner has received support and applause from celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Ellen DeGeneres, Kerry Washington, Miley Cyrus, Laverne Cox, Ricky Martin, Tyra Banks and Sam Smith as well as his daughters Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardashian West and Khloe Kardashian.
Upon joining Twitter, Jenner collected more than 1 million followers in four hours, according to reports, which noted how she broke the Guinness World Record that was previously held by President Barack Obama, who also voiced his support for the sports icon. On July 15, ESPN will honor Jenner with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.
The subject of Jenner came up as the former NBA all-star discussed her big magazine cover reveal as well as his attempts to get his more decorative photos on magazine covers nearly 20 years ago.
Whether or not Jenner responds to Rodman remains to be seen. During her interview with Diane Sawyer, Jenner stated that she has never been attracted to men and had been only attracted to women before her transition. Adding to all that is the fact that Jenner hasn’t had any gender assignment surgery, despite having some cosmetic surgery as part of her transition. Nevertheless, she hasn’t ruled it out either.
