Caitlyn Jenner, 70, is currently starring on the reality show “I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!” During a recent episode, she claimed that she hadn’t “really talked” with her stepdaughter Khloé Kardashian, 35, in 5 to 6 years.
However, a source has refuted the claims to “Us Weekly.” The insider explained:
“Khloé 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. For her love of Kylie and Kendall, she wouldn’t have a bad relationship with her.”

The publication’s informant also revealed that Caitlyn allegedly “isn’t close to the family as a whole.” The source stated that this was to be expected since the reality star “always has her own separate reality.”
The insider felt that Caitlyn’s “reality” didn’t “make sense,” they found it “disappointing” but wasn’t surprised by it. The reality star and television personality came out publicly as transgender in 2015.
During the episode of “I’m a Celebrity,” Khloé’s stepmother revealed that she first told her son Brandon Jenner before telling each of her children. However, Caitlyn claimed that Khloé was “[expletive] off about something through this whole process.”
She added that she’d raised her stepdaughter since she was just five they “were really close.” Caitlyn noted that she didn’t “know what her [Khloé’s] issues are.”
The reality star also lamented the fact that the Kardashian-Jenner families “are all having their appropriate Thanksgiving dinners.” She shared that it was probably the first time she wasn’t there and was sad about it.
The former Olympian and Khloé have somehow managed to miss each other on recent occasions. On October 24, the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino had an opening in Hollywood, Florida and Caitlyn was a no-show.
Five days later, his stepdaughter failed to pitch at Caitlyn’s 70th birthday party. However, on October 31, 2019, the source insisted that there was “zero bad blood” between the two.
The insider claimed the “Keeping up with the Kardashians (KUWTK)” star had an event to go to on the same night that Caitlyn’s birthday was held. The source alleged that the pair weren’t “fighting” and “They have fixed [their relationship].”
In a 2015 “KUWTK” episode, Khloé previously spoke out about her disappointment in Caitlyn. At the time, she shared how “beautiful” she thought it was that her stepmother could be open about being transgender.
Despite that, the businesswoman insisted Caitlyn didn’t have to “tear” down others to “build herself up.” She also criticized the “I am Cait” star for the way she spoke about her ex-wife Kris Jenner.
Caitlyn released a tell-all book where she claimed Kris knew she was transgender while they were married.
