The Kardashian sisters have been open about the fact that passages of Caitlyn’s 2017 memoircreated a rift in the family. In the book, Caitlyn claimed Kris knew she had struggled with her gender identity and experimented with cross-dressing for years, which the momager denied.
Khloé has also said she felt like “business people” found out about Caitlyn’s transition before the family did, and that she felt like she had lost the man who helped raise her.
“Not having you in my life, it’s a huge blow because I’m like okay, my second dad, this guy that I’ve grown up with, that raised me, was taken away from me,” she said on Keeping Up with the Kardashians in 2017. “No one really let me have that.”
“The only one that was really — and I still, even to today, can’t quite figure it out — was Khloé,” Caitlyn said of her children and stepchildren’s reactions to her transition. “Khloé for some reason was pissed off about something through this whole process. Honestly, it’s been five, six years and I really haven’t talked to her since. … I don’t know what it is, and that’s all I can say.”
“And Khloé and I were really close,” Caitlyn added. “I raised Khloé since she was 5 years old. I don’t know what her issues are, I really don’t know.”
Caitlyn is competing on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! season 19. On the show, contestants face off in challenges in the hopes that they get voted King or Queen of the Jungle and donate their winnings to a charity of their choice.
On another recent episode, she gave a cheeky answer when asked what her favorite body part is, responding, “Well let me put it this way, it’s changed in the last five years … and I’ll leave that up to you.”
