Caitlyn Jenner: ‘I used to dress up with Kris’
Caitlyn Jenner says she and ex-wife Kris Jenner used to dress up together.
The 66-year-old reality TV star – who came out as transgender last year – claims her former wife Kris was fine when she dressed up in women’s clothing at the beginning of their marriage but soon changed her mind.
In an interview for the video series ‘Makers’, she said: "Kris and I had dressed up a few times at the beginning, but then she didn’t want any more part of that, and I respected that, and kind of kept it away. But it was always there. A lot of times, when you have somebody in your life that’s diminishing that, you can deal with it, but it gets tougher and tougher and tougher in time.
"The rules, kind of, with Kris and I [were] don’t dress up, certainly, around the house. If you really feel the need to do that, when you’re on the road, take stuff, and so I did that for years. I’d go on the road for speaking engagements and take a bunch of stuff, dress up at the hotel, walk around, do whatever I wanted to do, just to feel a little bit better about myself. And I kind of dealt with it that way."
Kris, 60, has always maintained that she was unaware of Caitlyn’s desire to transition.
Kris and Caitlyn – who was previously known as Bruce – split in 2013 but the former Olympian insists her transition was not the reason for the breakdown of their marriage.
She said: "Our relationship went a long way, Kris and I. We were together for 23 years. We had a wonderful time, Kris is a really good person, but we did grow apart. And it came near the end where we were both really not happy… where she was at or where I’m at.
"I didn’t leave to go to transition, or do any of that stuff, although that certainly is part of it, because it’s part of me. I left because the relationship just wasn’t working, and our kids were just about all raised. Kris went out, found me another house, decorated the house in Malibu, where I was comfortable. She was great in that way, but we were both kind of ready to go our separate directions."
