Caitlyn Jenner files to legally change name, gender

We've all known her as Caitlyn Jenner for several months, but now, the star of "I Am Cait" is making it legal.

Jenner allegedly filed legal documents asking an L.A. County Superior Court judge to formalize her status as a woman. Jenner is asking for a legal name change and gender change, reports TMZ.

TMZ reports that Jenner is scared to provide all of the relevant documents, such as medical history, because she has received threats of physical harm. Consequently, she is asking the judge to keep private information sealed.
