Familial relationships are complicated at the best of times. However, when your whole life is under constant surveillance from the world’s media, these complications can become even greater – something which Caitlyn Jenner, her daughters, and the rest of the Kardashian clan know all too well.
After coming out as transgender in 2015, Caitlyn’s relationship with her ex-wife, Kris, has been a source of much speculation. While Kris was initially supportive, after Caitlyn portrayed her in a less than flattering light in her book, their relationship broke down completely.
To discover how Caitlyn recently snubbed the Kardashians (who took Kris’ side), check out the video below:
In Caitlyn’s book The Secrets of My Life, she revealed that Kris knew she was transgender before the two of them even slept together – a claim which Kris has since denied, saying that when she asked Caitlin – then Bruce – about her gender identity, she didn’t get a straight answer.
Speaking about Caitlyn’s claims in the book, Kris said, “I was curious. I said, ‘What the hell is going on?’ And she said, ‘You just would never understand.’ And then, all through the book, it’s like, ‘Kris knew.'”
“I’ve opened up my home and my heart to a person who doesn’t give a sh*t,” Kris continued. “So, I’m done. Dunzo. I’ve never been so angry or disappointed by somebody in my whole life.”
As a result, with the exception of the two daughters Caitlyn shares with Kris, her relationship with the other members of the Kardashian clan has almost completely broken down too, and she is not on speaking terms with Kris Jenner, Khloé, Kourtney, or Kim.
However, for Mother’s Day, Caitlyn appeared to extend an olive branch of sorts to Kris and Kim by sharing a number of touching photographs on her Instagram account. These included never-before-seen pictures of Kylie and daughter Stormi.
While there is nothing surprising about Caitlyn’s decision to post pictures of her youngest daughter on this special day, what made her pictures noteworthy were the tributes she paid to other members of her family who she’s currently not on speaking terms with.
Firstly, there was this adorable picture of Caitlyn and Kim with Saint West.
Speaking about her strained relationship with the Kardashians, Caitlyn said it’s “been a little bit tough over the last couple of years” and that they “don’t want me in their lives.”
The picture above with Kim was followed by a picture of Caitlyn and her ex-wife Kris.
All of these pictures were included in an Instagram series that the former Olympian simply captioned, “So blessed to have so many amazing moms in my life!”
However, as you may or may not have already noticed, there were two notable faces missing.
Namely, Kourtney and the most recent new mom in the family, Khloé, who welcomed daughter True with boyfriend Tristian Thompson in April.
While it could be argued that Caitlyn simply didn’t have any appropriate pictures of Khloé and Kourtney to hand to include them in the post, it could also have been a snub at the two women because of their role in her ongoing family feud.
Sadly, we’ll never know the reason behind their absence in the post as it’s now been deleted by Caitlyn.
One thing’s for sure, it’s unlikely that Caitlyn’s relationship with her ex-wife and extended family will improve any time soon. While pregnant with True, Khloé said that her becoming a mom doesn’t “affect anything with Caitlyn” and that things will stay “just as they are”.
