Meanwhile, Demi Lovato has also paid tribute to the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star - who spoke about his transition to a female in a tell-all interview with Diane Sawyer which aired on Friday- by dedicating her song Warrior to him during a performance in New Zealand on Saturday.
She told the audience at the Vector Arena in Auckland: "I just want to dedicate this song ... It's so cheesy that I'm even doing this, but whatever.
"I want to dedicate it to someone who became an even bigger hero last night - Bruce Jenner!
"No matter if you agree with it or not, he probably saved so many lives and educated so many people about transitioning into becoming a woman and being transgender and what that's all about. So, yeah, I just want to dedicate it to Bruce Jenner"
