Kris Jenner Meets Caitlyn Jenner for First Time in Malibu
Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner have finally met for the first time. Pictures have been published of Kris standing next to her SUV and of her car leaving Caitlyn’s Malibu hideaway. The two divorced after 25 years of marriage. They gave the typical statements about remaining friends but that changed after Caitlyn began her transition.
Caitlyn announced that “for all intents and purposes” she is a woman in a highly publicized interview with Diane Sawyer. The family reactions were captured in a two-part Keeping Up With the Kardashians: About Bruce special. While the family showed support through social media, they were honest about struggling with the transition. Nobody seemed to struggle more than Kris who tearfully confided to her daughter Kim that it made her wonder if her entire marriage was a fraud.
Other than a few posts on social media Kris has been relatively quiet about Caitlyn. She was remaining supportive on social media but privately struggling with the situation. The two gave conflicting accounts to Vanity Fair about what Kris knew and when as well as what caused the end of their marriage.
Caitlyn insisted that Kris knew about the transition early on and claimed to have had B cup breasts when they first got together, something that was supported by Linda Thompson, Jenner’s second wife. According to Thompson her kids came home from a visit saying they saw their dad showering and described boobs. Kris denied that she knew with some in her camp saying she believed it was more of a cross dressing fetish and not that she was married to a transgender person.
The two also squabbled about the end of their marriage. Kris claimed that Caitlyn, then Bruce, “wasn’t who he wanted to be so he was miserable.” Caitlyn complained that Kris became “less tolerant” and treated her miserably. She told Vanity Fair, “Twenty percent was gender and 80 percent was the way I was treated.”
Caitlyn has shared her transition and the pain of not living an authentic life for so many years making her claim that gender was only 20 percent of the problem seem less likely though the couple did seem to be more distant towards the end.
Kris reportedly visited Caitlyn for the first time unhappy over the level of animosity between the two. Despite her tough reputation, she has taken the divorce and Caitlyn’s transition hard but still considers Caitlyn family considering their years shared as well as their children. She is reportedly hoping to find a way to make peace with Caitlyn.
Caitlyn’s transition has been documented for E! In a sneak peek at next week’s I Am Cait episode Kim is heard telling Caitlyn that this is her time but to please not bash the family. Caitlyn also admits that Khloe was upset with the Vanity Fair piece.
It isn’t clear whether the meeting between Kris and Caitlyn will be part of Keeping Up With the Kardashians or I Am Cait or if it was just an attempt between the two to find a way to come together for the sake of their family.
