Bruce Jenner has stopped filming the TV show documenting his transition into a woman following his involvement in a fatal car crash.

The former Olympian, 65, has reportedly put shooting the reality series on hold and has no plans to continue anytime soon after the four car pile-up in Los Angeles which resulted in the death of his neighbour Kim Howe, earlier this month.

A source told Radar Online: "There is no timetable for when Bruce will resume filming the docuseries.

"Obviously, it's not the priority right now, given the severity of the situation that Bruce is facing. From a public relations standpoint, it would also be in very poor taste to be filming a reality show after Bruce was involved in the crash."

It is also thought the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star is putting his gender reassignment surgery on hold in the wake of the accident.

The source added: "Everything in Bruce's life is on hold right now, and it will likely remain that way until the police investigation is completed."

Bruce is recently said to have told officers there was no way he could've avoided the collision because the driver in front of him slammed on their breaks.

The reality TV star also released a statement about the crash and vowed to cooperate with the police investigation.

He said: "My heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loved ones, and to all of those who were involved or injured in this terrible accident.

"It is a devastating tragedy and I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them. I will continue to cooperate in every way possible."

It is reported Los Angeles Police have since obtained video footage from an MTA bus of the crash which will help them uncover the cause of the fatal collision but are yet to comment on their findings.
