They express support for their transgender stepfather in front of cameras and on social media, but in private, it appears there could be a family divide.
Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian have ‘turned their backs on Caitlyn Jenner’ during the months following the 65-year-old’s very public revelation of her female identity, according to the September 9 issue of Us Weekly.
Viewers recently saw snippets of Kim and Khloe’s frustrations towards their father figure – formerly known as Bruce – on E!’s I Am Cait reality series, but now close family sources have shared: ‘There’s not a lot of love for Caitlyn.’
Despite sharing selfies with Jenner on August 9, the Kardashian klan have reportedly been feeling some animosity for Caitlyn since she confirmed her transition from male to female in April.
The underlying issues behind the family feud seem to be primarily due to the Vanity Fair cover story and her statements about ex-wife Kris Jenner, 59.
‘Vanity Fair was the start of the downfall,’ a source told the publication. ‘It came out and they looked like idiots, they first saw the article on Twitter!’
Caitlyn has garnered a meteoric rise to stardom with fans taking in her every word, including well-publicized bashings against the 59-year-old momager.
‘The Kardashians were furious once they realized she took jabs at Kris, a lot of times she wasn’t very nice,’ an insider shared.
Adding: ‘They are so incensed that they may be done with Caitlyn for good. Everyone has turned their backs on her.’
So much so that communication between the stepfather and the stepchildren has nearly stopped. Texts halted as Caitlyn distanced herself at her secluded Malibu estate.
