Bruce Jenner formally came out as a woman on the July issue of Vanity Fair magazine where he posed as Caitlyn Jenner on Monday, June 1, 2015 and has received a lot of support and praise for his courage.
However, there is another twist to the story as the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star and former Olympian’s ex wife, Kris Jenner, has come out to say she was left in the dark about her ex-husband’s transformation and most of their marriage.
Kris shared her thoughts with Vanity Fair in the same interview that introduced Bruce as Caitlyn Jenner to the world. She said that she said that their separation was the “the most passive-aggressive thing” she had ever experienced.
The Kardashian Momager said that she was mostly in the dark about Bruce’s desire to transform and that even though he had mentioned to her before they got married that he took hormones in the ’80s, he never really explained the situation to her.
“Why would you want to be married and have kids if this is what you wanted since you were a little boy?” Kris asked, rhetorically. “Why would you not explain this all to me?”
“When I met Bruce, he told me that he had done hormones back in the early ’80s,” Kris recalled. “This was a conversation that took place in the early ’90s. So, what he was telling me happened a decade earlier, and he never really explained it.”
However, Bruce isn’t quite in agreement with Kris’ claims that she was in the dark about his desire to transform but said that she was fully aware and even saw him wearing women’s clothes but brushed it off. He claimed that she went as far as establishing a rule that he was only allowed to dress as a woman when he was travelling alone and away from the family.
Kris denied those claims but admitted that Bruce was often miserable and pissed off during most of their marriage. “He was married to me, and he wasn’t who he wanted to be so he was miserable,” Kris said.
She revealed that his social anxiety issues caused a lot of conflict for them as a couple; “We fought a lot because we would go out together and before we got to the end of the block we were in a fight because he started saying, ‘When can we go home?'”
According to Bruce, the relationship ended because of the way Kris treated him; “I think in a lot of ways she became less tolerant of me. Then I’d get upset, and the whole relationship kind of fizzled,” he said the reason for their break up was mostly “20 gender and 80 percent was the way I was treated.”
