Caitlyn Jenner has come out swinging in her first major interview, telling Vanity Fair that ex-wife Kris “mistreated” and “controlled” her throughout their marriage!
At the time of the couple’s divorce in 2014, Kris insisted they were parting as friends, but it seems any good feelings between them may have faded.
“The first 15 years I felt she needed me more because I was the breadwinner…” Caitlyn told Vanity Fair in her new cover interview. “Then really around the show, when that hit and she was running the whole show and getting credit for it and she had her own money, she didn’t need me as much from that standpoint. … I think in a lot of ways she became less tolerant of me.”
“A lot of times she wasn’t very nice,” Caitlyn continued. “People would see how I got mistreated. She controlled the money, all that kind of stuff.”
But Kris fired back, “He was married to me and he wasn’t who he wanted to be so he was miserable… All I was doing was working very hard for my family so that we could all have a wonderful future, and he was pissed off.”
What”s more, Kris claimed, “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.”
And when Caitlyn went public with her transformation, Kris said she was stunned: “It was like the most passive-aggressive thing I think I ever experienced.”
Still, Caitlyn said that any focus on her gender issues as the reason for the split is misguided, and that most of it was Kris’ fault.
She insisted, “Twenty percent was gender and 80 percent was the way I was treated.”
