Bruce Jenner: The Next Michael Jackson?!

by at .  Updated at .

Is Bruce Jenner suffering from the same dangerous addiction to plastic surgery that Michael Jackson infamously fell victim to over his troubled existence?

According to family sources cited by TMZ today, you bet.

He's not changing his identity, just in the midst of a severe mid-life crisis and is becoming addicted to plastic surgery, to the chagrin of the Jenner and Kardashian families.

There are rumors that Bruce's escalating interest in surgery - most recently getting his Adam's Apple removed - is part of a plan for gender reassignment.

The family isn't buying the Bruce Jenner sex change rumor, but fears his new look is part of an ongoing, "Michael Jackson´╗┐-like obsession with plastic surgery." ┬á

They say Bruce, 64, is struggling to regain his youth.

After being married to Kris Jenner and having the life sucked out of you for over two decades, you can understand that to a point ... but is he going too far?

People point to the fact that he's moved to Malibu, grown his hair long and into a ponytail, drives a Harley, and has surgically changed his nose and neck.

Moreover, the family has actually counseled Bruce Jenner against all the surgery, saying he was a very good looking man to begin with, but he wouldn't listen.

"He loves sports, helicopters and cars," says a family insider, calling Bruce "super manly" at heart ... even if you wouldn't know it from recent pictures.

Bruce's sons Brody and Brandon Jenner, daughters Kylie and Kendall Jenner, and stepkids Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and Rob Kardashian are all concerned.

At the Sherwood Country Club, he apparently talks often about the '76 Olympics where he won gold in the decathlon. He was certainly young then.

What do you think? Is Bruce a plastic surgery addict? Where does he rank among other celebs who have going under the knife to a dangerous degree?
