Caitlyn Jenner Reveals Sad New Details Surrounding Divorce From Kris

Caitlyn Jenner has revealed some details surrounding her divorce of Kris Jenner. And, like many divorces, there is much sadness and pain even when you know it's the right thing to do. Caitlyn says that Kris "mistreated" her and was "controlling" and that much of the changes in their marriage happened as a result of the success of the show Keeping Up With the Kardashians not because Bruce was going to transition.


We must remember that these two were married for 23 years. They had two children together, and merged a huge family with kids from previous marriages. There is a lot of history, a lot of feelings wrapped up in this. I did however notice that on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Bruce was sometimes dismissed or as Caitlyn says "mistreated." I wasn't sure if it was something that edited film brought out or if there really was tension. It's clear now what was really going on. Caitlyn revealed a lot more than her new look in Vanity Fair. She said of Kris and their marriage:

The first 15 years I felt she needed me more because I was the breadwinner. Then really around the show, 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... 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.

Kris had her own things to say on the matter. She thought it was "passive-aggressive" when he let the world know about his intent to transition. She has also said:

He was married to me and he wasn't who he wanted to be so he was miserable…  All I was doing was working very hard for my family so that we could all have a wonderful future, and he was p***ed off. 

At the end of my relationship with Bruce he definitely had a lot of social anxiety… That was one of the reasons we were in a struggle at the end. 

I don't see this as either of them lashing out at each other ... exactly. I do see pain in the words, but that is typical of any couple divorcing. It is such a hard thing, and this family also had so many other things going on besides just the breakdown of a marriage. That, along with being in the public eye, must truly be so difficult.

Caitlyn admits that she didn't help Kris understand the entire situation. And Kris had a whole process to take in -- not just the divorce, but the transition. And just because she was having a hard time with it emotionally, doesn't mean she doesn't support Caitlyn. Time helps. Patience helps. Thinking things through and not letting your emotions take over helps.

In tears, on an episode of KUWTK, Kris said she was mourning "the death" of Bruce. Which makes sense. This is something that already happens with a divorce, and then to add on the transition is a lot to process. Caitlyn said that the reason their marriage ended was "twenty percent was gender and 80 percent was the way I was treated." There are so many emotions here, but I do feel that Kris and Caitlyn are going to find a way to be friends, to co-parent together, and it wouldn't surprise me if they continue to have grandchildren birthday celebrations, along with Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners together, as a family.

I wish them peace.

Do you think Kris and Caitlyn are going to find a way to become friends and co-parents?
