Former Olympic champion Bruce Jenner has been fighting a serious battle - and has the scars to prove it.

The husband of reality TV star and “mommager” Kris Jenner sported stitches at the NBA basketball game between the Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Lakers in Los Angeles, reports TMZ.com.

Jenner had undergone skin cancer removal surgery on Friday.

Jenner had reportedly discovered a mark that turned out to be a cancerous growth, after a biopsy done.

The affected area was removed from his cheek at an outpatient facility. - IOL
