Drama never ceases in the Kardashian household, and today is no exception
For the past year, Caitlyn Jenner, 68, has created undeniable tension in her relationships with her former stepdaughters, climaxing after the release of her autobiography, The Secrets of My Life.
In her memoir, the gold medalist detailed her decision to transition from male to female in 2015.
Caitlyn’s negative depiction of her relationship with her ex-wife, Kris Jenner, had angered her daughters, Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney Kardashian to the point where they broke off all ties with their stepfather - who had helped raise them since they were children.
During an interview on The View earlier this year, Kim dished on her estranged relationship with the I Am Cait star.
“At the end of the day, my mom and Caitlyn had a 25 year relationship… and you just have to have some respect for it… I don’t want to discredit [Caitlyn’s] feelings, or her account, but when all of us were there, witnessing something, and seeing things different, it was just a little bit surprising to me,” Kim said.
“She’ll always be my stepdad, and she’ll always be the person who raised me and taught me so much in life… She’ll always be a part of me, but have I talked to her in the last couple of months? No,” she added.
While their reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians covered the demise of their relationship in depth, Caitlyn has added more fuel to the fire when she discussed the secrecy of her transition with television personality, Piers Morgan.
On Jan. 4, Caitlyn appeared on ITV’s Piers Morgan’s Life Stories, where she discussed her decision to transition from male to female.
Caitlyn said she gave out copies of her memoir to all her family members before it was published in April 2015, “except for the last few pages when I talked about gender confirmation [surgery].”
When asked why that section was omitted from the preview, Caitlyn was quick to point out she didn’t want those intimate details leaked out to the press before the book was released.
“I didn’t want them to leak it to the press, okay?” Caitlyn said. “And there was no reason for them to know about it.”
When pressed, Caitlyn said she deliberately kept quiet as she didn’t trust them to keep her secret.
“Of course not - of course I didn’t trust them,” Caitlyn admitted.
