Bruce Jenner’s first interview about his transition into a woman will be handled “delicately”, Diane Sawyer is said to have promised him.

The former Olympian will discuss his life change for the first time with news anchor Diane, with some claims reporting that the sit-down will take place as soon as this weekend.

In addition, there will reportedly be no payment to Bruce for the interview, which will air on ABC, because he is keen to ensure people don’t think he is exploiting his situation.

“Diane called him directly; there was absolutely no payment whatsoever,” a source told the New York Daily News. “Diane has handled (it) from top to bottom, and the interview may air in two or three parts instead of one special.”

'Bruce has embraced it and feels liberated finally to begin the life meant to be for him'

Bruce is also said to have agreed to hand over pictures and videos to ABC for them to use as part of the documentary – again at no charge.

However, while he won’t receive payment for the Diane interview, Bruce will take home a fee for the E! docu-series focusing on his transition.

It was reported on Wednesday that Bruce finally felt ready to embrace his feminine side after undergoing “intense therapy” last year.

“The therapy was intense, and continues to be a part of the transition,” a source told RadarOnline.com. “Bruce has embraced it and feels liberated finally to begin the life meant to be for him.”

“The support just the last few weeks has been tremendous and Bruce has said if he had known the reception would have been so positive, he could have done it much sooner. Bruce also wants to help other people dealing with gender identity. For so long he felt ashamed of who he was, and tried to change. If he can help one other person by doing this, well that would be awesome.”
