Caitlyn Jenner: Relationship With Stepdaughters Reportedly ‘Strained’ [Video]

According to a report, Caitlyn Jenner is no longer tight with her Kardashian stepdaughters. Indeed, according to a report by Us Weekly, the relationship between Caitlyn Jenner and her Kardashian step-kin has become very strained following her 2015 transgender reveal on the cover of Vanity Fair. At least one insider close to the Kardashian and Jenner brood(s) says that the Kardashian sisters think that Caitlyn Jenner owes their mom an apology and that she’s owed Kris Jenner an, “I’m sorry” since she went public with her new transgender status in 2015.

According to a source close to the Kardashian family, Khloe, Kourtney, and Kim Kardashian all feel as though their mom was snubbed and back-stabbed by Caitlyn Jenner. The sisters believe that “there should have been an ‘I’m sorry’ moment from Caitlyn.” Indeed, the grown Kardashian sisters feel like Caitlyn (formerly Bruce) Jenner, now 66-years-old, “threw their mom under the bus” when she came out as transgender in a bustier on the cover of Vanity Fair.

Khloe Kardashian has been through a ton in the last year, what with her estranged (and soon-to-be divorced) husband Lamar Odom being found unconscious, overdosed on illegal drugs and near death at a Nevada brothel, and reportedly she has never made up with Caitlyn Jenner after their initial fight concerning the Vanity Fair article.

According to a source close to the family, Caitlyn Jenner and her stepdaughter never actually made up after the infamous Howard Stern interview, either. In that interview, which took place in January 2016, Khloe famously told the world that Caitlyn Jenner was “not honest” about her transition when it came to her wife, Khloe’s mom, Kris Jenner.

The source says that Kim Kardashian-West, 35, and Kourtney Kardashian, 37, have also become estranged from Caitlyn Jenner, their former stepfather.

Reportedly, the strain in the relationship between the Kardashian girls and Caitlyn Jenner can be traced back to Caitlyn Jenner’s absolute refusal to apologize for what her decision to transition did to Kris Kardashian. According to at least one source, the way “things played out” with regard to Bruce Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner (as well as their collective influence on Kris Jenner), Kim is shying away from a relationship with Caitlyn, her former stepfather.

“Kim is not as close to Caitlyn anymore; she was after she first transitioned but as things came out and Caitlyn stayed unapologetic, the relationship got more and more strained. Because of how things played out with Bruce and with Caitlyn, she is reluctant to have a serious relationship with Caitlyn.”

In a nutshell, despite Caitlyn Jenner’s current celebrity status, Kim Kardashian has opted to remain loyal to her mom as opposed to unquestioningly supporting Caitlyn Jenner’s unapologetic decision to transition to a female without a word of apology to the woman who had loved her as a male for years.

According to the insider source, Kourtney Kardashian hasn’t always had a deep relationship with Caitlyn Jenner (formerly U.S. Olympian Bruce Jenner), so she “doesn’t really get involved” in the drama and nonsense surround the Caitlyn Jenner/Kardashian relationship.

The divide between the Kardashian clan and Caitlyn Jenner really got weird on Father’s Day. That’s when the Kardashian girls didn’t give Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce Jenner, now living as a woman) any kind of social media recognition on the most high-profile of dad’s days.

But what is the etiquette here? If an individual no longer identifies as a male, is that person still a father? Were the Kardashian girls really snubbing Caitlyn Jenner? Or were they simply honoring Caitlyn Jenner’s new gender identity?
