Caitlyn Jenner

LOS ANGELES — Things just got real for reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner. She’s gearing up for a legal fight now that cops want to slap her with manslaughter charges for the Malibu crash that killed a driver.

Investigators say evidence proves Jenner was driving at an unsafe speed in February when her Cadillac Escalade rear-ended two cars, pushing a Lexus into oncoming traffic.

The Lexus driver, 69-year-old Kim Howe, was killed when a Hummer hit her head-on.

The case will be presented to prosecutors next week. The district attorney’s office will then determine what charges Jenner faces.

If convicted, she could spend up to a year in county jail.

The crash happened before Caitlyn Jenner’s gender transition. She was formerly known as Bruce Jenner, the 1976 Olympic decathlon champion and Kim Kardashian’s stepfather.
