Caitlyn Jenner has been open an honest with her camp mates during the current season of I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here in the UK. And, in a recent episode, she surprisingly revealed that she hasn’t spoken to her stepdaughter Khloé Kardashian since she split from Kris Jenner five years ago.
According to Page Six, the 70-year-old Olympic gold medalist spoke candidly about coming out at as transgender in 2014 after she and Kris separated, and she admitted that she and Khloé haven’t spoken since.
Caitlyn made it clear that her family has been extremely supportive of her transition, except for Khloé, who was “p*ssed off.” However, she isn’t sure what specific “issues” Khloé has with her. Caitlyn also revealed that her kids were the first people she told about her transition.
“The first was the kids, I started with Brandon my son and he said to me: ‘Dad, I’ve always been so proud to be your son but I’ve never been more proud of you than right now,’” said Caitlyn. “I went through every kid and Khloé for some reason was p*ssed off about something through this whole process, it’s been five or six years and I really haven’t talked to her since.”
Noticeably sad by the broken relationship with her stepdaughter, Caitlyn said that she and Khloé were really close and she had raised her since she was five years old.
Caitlyn was married to Kris Jenner from 1991 to 2014, and she was an active step-parent to Khloé and her sisters Kim and Kourtney, as well as her brother Rob. While she has remained in touch with Kris and the rest of her kids, Caitlyn says that’s not the case with Khloé.
Since Caitlyn split from Kris and came out publicly as transgender, Khloé has admitted that she wasn’t happy about how Caitlyn treated Kris after their divorce, and she didn’t like what Caitlyn had to say in her 2017 memoir The Secrets Of My Life.
In the book, Caitlyn wrote that Kris knew she was transgender during their marriage, and Khloé accused Caitllyn of “publicly shaming” the Kardashian-Jenner family.
Caitlyn Jenner also revealed that she is always part of the family holiday celebrations, and this is the first time she’s missed out. She said that she knows both sides of her family are all having their appropriate Thanksgiving dinners, but normally on that day she is running back and forth between the “strictly Jenners” side to the “Kardashian-Jenner side.”
