Caitlyn Jenner Claims Kris Jenner 'Mistreated' Her During Their Marriage
In the July issue of Vanity Fair, Caitlyn Jenner does more than elaborate on her gender transition.
She talks about three ex-wives, the Kardashian family and the media empire their reputation built.
One of the most interesting aspects of the story is Jenner's relationship with ex-wife Kris.
The pair, who married in 1991 after a short courtship, share their radically different takes on the relationship with author Buzz Bissinger.
According to Caitlyn, Kris only cherished her as a spouse while she was "the breadwinner," funding their lifestyle with endorsements and motivational speeches.
But when "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" took off, Caitlyn alleges her marriage took a turn for the worse.
I think in a lot of ways [Kris] became less tolerant of me. Then I'd get upset and the whole relationship kind of fizzled.
The change was, in fact, evident to many fans of the show.
Caitlyn alleges the dissolution of her marriage to Kris was 20 percent due to gender and 80 percent her treatment of Bruce.
A lot of times [Kris] wasn't very nice. People would see how I got mistreated. She controlled the money... all that kind of stuff.
As for Kris, who was also interviewed by Bissinger, her marriage to Bruce is still a painful subject.
She claimed to not have understood the depth of Bruce's gender identity struggle, although she did permit him to cross-dress while traveling.
She called Bruce's commitment to a relationship he couldn't fulfill "the most passive-aggressive thing" she endured.
As Caitlyn stirs up a media frenzy, keep an eye on Kris for an updated reaction.
