Khloe Kardashian Has Two Big Reasons Why She Could Never Really Shun Caitlyn Jenner
While the Kardashian-Jenner family is known for being very close, things have been rough for the relationship between Khloe Kardashian and Caitlyn Jenner these past few years. Some people believe that Kardashian and Jenner are no longer on speaking terms and that Kardashian wants to cut Jenner out of her life completely. However, the truth is that Kardashian could never shun Jenner, and there are two big reasons for it.
Khloe Kardashian and Caitlyn Jenner’s drama started in 2015
The tension between Kardashian and Jenner seemed to have started in 2015 when Jenner came out publicly as a trans woman.
Kardashian later shared that she felt blindsided by the news because she and her family only learned about Jenner’s transition when speaking with E! producers. She said in a 2016 interview: “They mentioned Bruce had a television show about transitioning, and that’s the first we heard of it… We felt betrayed because more business people [knew].”
Kardashian and Jenner had a discussion about this on a 2017 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and it seemed that the pair managed to make up with each other.
However, Jenner released a 2017 memoir that made some damaging accusations about Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner, including the fact that Kris often made her husband feel “weak and inferior.” This led to a falling out between Jenner and the Kardashian family.
Caitlyn Jenner claimed that she had not talked to Khloe Kardashian in years
Jenner is currently appearing on the popular British show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here, where she revealed many tidbits about the Kardashian family. One thing that Jenner shared was that she and Khloe Kardashian had not talked to each other in years.
Jenner said that when she came out as transgender to her family, she “started with [son] Brandon” and “went through every kid,” though things hit a rough patch with Kardashian. Jenner commented: “Khloe, for some reason, was pissed off about something through this whole process. Honestly, it’s been five, six years, and I really haven’t talked to her since.”
“We were really close,” Jenner added. “I raised her since she was 5 years old. I really don’t know what her issues are.”
Sources say that Khloe Kardashian would never cut off Caitlyn Jenner completely
According to Us Weekly, sources have rebutted Jenner’s claim that she and Kardashian had not talked in a long time.
An insider shared: “Khloe and Caitlyn aren’t the closest, but the idea that they haven’t spoken in 5-6 years is crazy. They have seen each other, they have spoken.”
The source also revealed that Kardashian would never cut off contact with Jenner like that because of Kendall and Kylie Jenner. The source said: “For her love of Kylie and Kendall, she wouldn’t have a bad relationship with [Caitlyn].”
Ultimately, the insider confirmed the belief that Jenner isn’t close to the Kardashian family anymore. Reportedly, Jenner “always has her own separate reality,” which is “disappointing somewhat, but not surprising.”
Could Khloe Kardashian be having a strained relationship with Kendall and Kylie Jenner?
While Kardashian clearly wants to not shun Caitlyn Jenner too much due to her relationship with Kendall and Kylie, Radar Online reported in November that the sisters’ relationship could be getting more difficult to maintain due to Kardashian and Jenner’s rift.
A source allegedly shared that the Kendall and Kylie are getting tired of Kardashian’s drama and that “she doesn’t seem to care about anybody else besides her.”
“Khloe doesn’t return calls, she gets drunk at parties and starts talking dirt about their dad and everyone else in the family,” the insider continued.
However, it does not seem like Kardashian and the Jenner girls have cut off contact with each other completely. They still show up to events and pose for photos together. Kylie also chose Kardashian’s side during the whole Tristan Thompson cheating scandal, showing that the sisters are still able to at least maintain a cordial relationship.
