Caitlyn Jenner Reflects on Kris Jenner Marriage: I ‘Wouldn’t Trade That Time for Anything’
The Olympian, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, wrote on Twitter about her latest Vanity Fair profile where she said Kris was “less tolerant” of her during their later years of their marriage. Looking at the issue, in which she also covers, Caitlyn tweeted:
In the interview, Caitlyn opened up about the changing dynamic in their marriage after Keeping Up With the Kardashians started to become popular.
“The first 15 years I felt [Kris] needed me more because I was the breadwinner. Then, really around [the time of KUWTK], when that hit and she was running the whole show and getting credit for it and she had her own money, she didn’t need me as much from that standpoint,” Caitlyn told the publication. “I think in a lot of ways she became less tolerant of me. A lot of times she wasn’t very nice. People would see how I got mistreated. She controlled the money, all that kind of stuff.”
In the same article, Kris contended that Caitlyn’s gender issues were the cause of their separation, saying that her partner “just decided, I’m done.” Kris, 59, also said Caitlyn, 65, approaching her about the divorce “the most passive-aggresive thing I think I’ve ever experienced.”
“Why would you want to be married and have kids if this is what you wanted since you were a little boy?,” she said. “Why would you not explain this all to me?”
Kris previously claimed she was not aware of Caitlyn’s desires to transition, but admitted she knew Caitlyn had undergone hormone treatments in the ’90s. She also insisted she did not know Caitlyn liked to dress in women’s clothing or that her spouse had hoped to transition entirely.
