To the world, Kris Jenner looked shocked and devastated when Caitlyn Jenner finally admitted what most fans already knew. During an exclusive 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer, she revealed she’d be transitioning and becoming the woman she always dreamed of being. Initially, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars reacted as expected. Kris Jenner could barely stand the sight of her estranged ex-husband.
Now, there are reports that suggest she knew all about Caitlyn’s hidden desires long before the highly publicized transition. Even when the world knew Caitlyn as Bruce Jenner, there were still many bizarre moments when his desires were quite evident. A report published by Radar Online has documented several moments from Caitlyn’s past that prove Kris Jenner was never in the dark.

Thirty years ago, Caitlyn considered traveling to Denmark to for a sex change. “He thought maybe he could reenter [the children’s] lives as a female relative,” said Caitlyn’s ex-wife, Linda, in her book. She also revealed Caitlyn still wanted to be married after transitioning. However, Linda knew their relationship wouldn’t survive such a change.
“I am a woman trapped in a man’s body,” she says she told her in early 1985. “I have lived in the wrong skin, the wrong body, my whole life. It is a living hell for me, and I really feel that I would like to move forward with the process of becoming a woman, the woman I have always been inside.”
Linda’s book basically confirms Caitlyn’s plans were in motion even before he met Kris Jenner. Although he married Kris and went on to have more children with her, she reportedly knew there was a secret life she desired. Linda’s mom also revealed another incident when Caitlyn was caught trying on women’s clothing.
“I saw him preening and posing in front of the mirror,” Linda said her mom told her. “He just had his underwear on, and he took his genitals, and he tucked them behind, so that he was flat in the front. And then he was posing with his genitals tucked behind.”

However, that’s not all. She also claims Caitlyn told Kris Jenner about her desired transition and the KUWTK matriarch was fine with his intentions. “Bruce told me … that Kris was okay with everything,” she wrote.
Linda went a step further and accused Kris Jenner of lying about her knowledge of Caitlyn’s plans. Even if he hadn’t told Kris, there were still major indicators of his plans. “Bruce had no hair left on his face, neck or chest, and no hope of ever growing hair there again due to the painful electrolysis he had undergone,” she explained. “In addition, he had already had ‘feminizing’ surgeries to his face, and as a result of the female hormones he had been taking for five years, he had substantial breasts … He would have had a tough time hiding his partial transition from someone with whom he had become intimate.”
So, despite her level of shock and dismay, the transition was no surprise. The latest report follows the cancellation of Caitlyn Jenner’s reality series I Am Cait. Although Kris Jenner is still riding high with Keeping Up With the Kardashians flying high in Season 12, I Am Cait didn’t have the same level of success.
The show was canceled after only two seasons despite all of the publicity surrounding her transition. Now, there are reports that the former Olympian is “begging” Kris Jenner to return to KUWTK‘ now that I Am Cait has been canceled. But are the rumors true?
According to Gossip Cop, the rumors aren’t true. InTouch magazine reported that Cait “wants to be back on TV so badly that she’s begging Kris to let her return to ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ full-time.” But, Gossip Cop has confirmed she never begged to return to the show. However, that doesn’t mean she’ll be returning to the show.
