Caitlyn Jenner Claims Kris Jenner Split Was About Mistreatment, Kris Jenner Has A Different Story

Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner married back in 1991 and were together for over 20 years before announcing their separation in October of 2013. The news shocked the media, but according to Caitlyn Jenner, the tension had been building for years.

In her Vanity Fair profile, she explained that their marriage fell apart because of mistreatment. According to her, only 20% of the problems were related to gender issues. She says things really went downhill when Kris Jenner became more financially independent because of their successful reality show…

The relationship was different. 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. A lot of times she wasn’t very nice. People would see how I got mistreated. She controlled the money … all that kind of stuff.

But Kris Jenner has a different story. She also talked with Buzz Bissinger for Vanity Fair, and she claims it was Caitlyn’s social anxiety causing most of the problems.

At the end of my relationship with Bruce he definitely had a lot of social anxiety … That was one of the reasons we were in a struggle at the end. 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?’

Who do you believe? It’s probably a mixture. I’m sure there is some truth to both sides. I could easily see Kris Jenner being rude and nasty to Caitlyn, but I also believe Kris is telling the truth when she says Caitlyn’s social anxiety was an important factor in the split.
