Kylie Jenner Explains Why Caitlyn Jenner Wasn’t at Her Graduation Party
In a new post on her app, the 18-year-old reflects on her education and explains why the Olympian missed the milestone. While she says she wishes that mom Kris Jenner would have invited the other parent, she realizes not having Caitlyn there was best for the family dynamic at the time.
“Some people made a big deal about the fact that my dad wasn’t included in that graduation party my mom threw for Kendall and I, and I did miss Caitlyn being there,” Kylie writes. “Bruce was a huge part of my life in school; he would drive me 45 mins to and from every day and he never missed a game I had. I wish Caitlyn could have been there, but it’s understandable why she wasn’t and I respected my mom’s decision about it.”
Kylie, who finished her home schooling this July, adds that her parents have always stressed the importance of getting her high school diploma.
“My mom and dad always made it super clear to me that I had to graduate high school; education was always a priority for them. I was pretty lucky in my school experience, even before I was home schooled; I feel like I was friends with everyone,” she pens. “I’m proud to be able say that I have the diploma to prove all my hard work.”
As previously depicted on I Am Cait, Caitlyn confronted ex-wife Kris when she found out she wasn’t invited to her youngest daughter’s high school graduation. Though the two eventually made up, the former couple exchanged harsh words about the snub.
“‘It wasn’t me making that decision. It was you making that decision. I was so disappointed in everybody,” Caitlyn told Kris at the time. “For 15 years of my life I carpooled kids every day … some days I would spend 3 or 4 hours in the car. [It’s] a slap in the face when you don’t even get invited to their graduation.”
Kylie attended school in Sierra Canyon School with other students, but switch to home schooling in 2012 to accommodate her busy schedule. She graduated from Laurel Springs High School in Ojai, Calif.
