Kris Jenner says she’s ‘thankful’ she never doubted her gender – and turned to God to deal with her ex-husband’s transition.
Caitlyn Jenner publicly came out as transgender last year – but recently revealed she first tried to transition decades ago, before meeting future wife Kris Jenner.
The former Olympian explained that Kris Jenner had banned her from presenting as female during their marriage, adding: “The rules with Kris and I were, ‘Don’t dress up, certainly around the house.’
“If you really need to do that, when you’re on the road, take stuff and do that.”
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Kris Jenner said she is now trying to be tolerant.
She said: “I think at some point, although it was difficult and, uh, a challenge … I just have to let it go. And try to be tolerant.”
Of how she came to terms with Caitlyn’s transition, she said: “Prayer. God. You know, just trying to understand. It takes time. But time is a wonderful healer. And we have two children together.
“It’s important for my kids to see our family strong and united.”
She added: “I’d never known anyone who was transgender… I didn’t even know what the word meant.
“Because there’s transgender and transsexual, and there’s… I mean, I just didn’t know much about it.
“So I definitely got a big education.”
She added: “I never [questioned my own gender].
“Thank God, I never doubted myself. I never really doubted my femininity. I just doubted the relationship.”
