Caitlyn Jenner: I couldn’t trust Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner with my trans news
Jenner, 68, told Piers Morgan’s Life Stories that ex-wife Kris Jenner did not know she had surgery until she wrote it in her memoir.
When she sent a copy of her memoir The Secrets Of My Life to Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian before publication, it did not include the last few pages in which she “talked about gender confirmation”.
Asked who knew, Jenner explained: “No, I didn’t tell anybody. Why? It’s none of their business.”
On whether her gender transition was the business of her ex-wife and the family, she said: “No, it’s not that big a deal. Nobody knows.
“I had to be honest, the book is about honesty. It’s called The Secrets of My Life.
“I had already been living as Caitlyn for a year and a half, OK, nobody knows anything.”
Asked by Piers Morgan if keeping the revealing part of her book from the Kardashians was “wilfully deceptive”, Jenner responded: “Because I didn’t want them to leak it to the press.
“And there was no reason for them to know about it.”
Jenner said: “Of course I didn’t trust them, yeah. I hate to inform the Kardashians that the book was not about them.”
“The Kardashian side – I really don’t talk to them very often. I just kind of deal with that,” she told hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid.
“Fortunately, I have a lot of children,” the Olympic gold medallist added, throwing some shade.
Speaking to students at Cambridge University, the 68-year-old said: “It’s been a little bit tough over the last couple of years on the Kardashian side.”
“To be honest, I don’t talk to them anymore. Kim, I haven’t talked to in a year.”
She continued: “They don’t want me in their lives, the bashed me pretty badly.
“It’s devastating when your kids do that. It really hurt,” Caitlyn told the Cambridge Union.
“I don’t know what the future holds. We will see.”
