When Bruce Jenner decided to transition to Caitlyn Jenner, it seemingly spelled the end of her relationship with the Kardashian family.
After she transitioned, Caitlyn released a tell-all book that took multiple shots at the famous family, specifically at matriarch Kris Jenner.
Jenner slammed Kris, saying she knew about Caitlyn’s desire to transition but intentionally withheld funds so she couldn’t do it. Jenner claims the Kardashian family exploited her and used her on their show, and that she had been “sold out.”
According to the Kardashians, when Jenner gave them preview copies of her book, specific sections were omitted which related to the family and their late father. This was the last straw for the family.
“I just feel like there’s been so much hurt and pain with Caitlyn and my mom and at the end of the day, I’ll always ride for my mom,” Kim Kardashian said. “She’s my mom and I love her to death. I’m just going to try and be super positive and hope that it all resolves itself. I’ll always love [Caitlyn.] That was my stepdad for so many years. She taught me about character growing up. And I just feel like I don’t respect the character she’s showing now.”
Caitlyn tried to back-peddle a little, but it was a poorly veiled attempt.
“I say in the beginning of the book that this is an honest story, but it’s my story and my side,” she said. “There’s always two sides to every story. Kris and I had 23 great years together. We raised 10 wonderful children and we had two more ourselves. I worked tirelessly to raise great kids and I’m very proud of my children. But there was a lot of things that were happening and that’s her side.”
Things died down for a little bit, until Caitlyn Jenner did an interview claiming Kris Jenner knew about O.J. Simpson’s plans to kill Nicole Brown-Simpson.
Now, Caitlyn Jenner has decided to start up more drama in an appearance at the Cambridge Union.
Jenner revealed that her relationship with the Kardashian family is “non-existent” and she believes this is all their fault.
“It’s been a little bit tough over the last couple of years on the Kardashian side,” Jenner said. “To be honest, I don’t talk to them anymore. Kim I haven’t talked to in a year. They don’t want me in their lives, they bashed me pretty badly. It’s devastating when your kids do that. It really hurt.”
Jenner believes the family took offense with her book and made it all about themselves as opposed to her struggles.
“I tried to be honest in my book,” she claims. “Very fair and very nice. Unfortunately they didn’t take it that way. In the book I express some opinions and got shot down. It was not about the Kardashians. They were only mentioned on 20 pages. They made it more about them on television. The book was about my life. That’s caused a lot of the separation between us.”
Jenner does admit, however, that she still has a relationship with their biological daughters.
“Kendall and Kylie [still see Caitlyn.] That’s their dad,” Kim Kardashian told Ellen. “And my mom has been so respectful for so long in always wanting to have a great relationship with Caitlyn. But, as for “the Kardashians,” you know – she doesn’t like to say that word. She said in her book that on Diane Sawyer she never said our name – no. I haven’t talked to her in a couple of weeks.”
To many, this seems like an attention grab on Caitlyn’s end, while others say it’s the Kardashians making something all about themselves. What do you think?
