THE TRUTH ABOUT HER DIVORCE

While many believed that Caitlyn’s divorce with Kris resulted from her decision to come out as a woman, she proved otherwise. She said:

“After 23 years, Kris and I went our separate directions. My identity; it was not a big part of us separating. There was [sic] so many other issues out there.”

However, Caitlyn’s identity crisis, which resulted in self-exasperation, contributed to her temper with Kris towards the end of their union.

BETTER THROUGH TIME

Caitlyn and Kris’ relationship became better after their divorce, and saw their issues suddenly evaporating. In fact, the Jenner patriarch had to tell her wife about the new name she chose carefully.

The former athlete, who battled gender dysphoria for most of his life, has been helping the LGBTQ community since his coming out by granting scholarships.

The momager initially thought that her former husband chose a name that began with the letter K to keep up with their family. “No, I’m going with a C. There’s got to be a little separation between church and state,” Caitlyn corrected her.
