Caitlyn Jenner says it’s ‘devastating’ Kim Kardashian refuses to speak to her
Caitlyn Jenner has revealed her famous relatives now refuse to talk to her.
The transgender star has caused huge controversy in recent months, both for her personal life and her reluctance to condemn president Donald Trump.
Jenner has been heavily criticised for continuing to back Trump, who has opposed transgender rights while in office.
LGBT activists even forced her to turn down a trans award last month as they planned to protest the event.
Her personal relationships with the Kardashian family have led to headlines too.
Jenner published a tell-all book, The Secrets of my Life, which has reportedly caused Kim Kardashian to break off all contact.
Speaking to students at Cambridge University, the 68-year-old said: “It’s been a little bit tough over the last couple of years on the Kardashian side.”
“To be honest, I don’t talk to them anymore. Kim, I haven’t talked to in a year.”
She continued: “They don’t want me in their lives, the bashed me pretty badly.
“It’s devastating when your kids do that. It really hurt,” Caitlyn told the Cambridge Union.
“I don’t know what the future holds. We will see.”
It’s not the first time the former Olympian has spoken about her former family rejecting her.
Appearing on Good Morning Britain, Jenner revealed that her contact with the Kardashians is basically over.
“The Kardashian side – I really don’t talk to them very often. I just kind of deal with that,” she told hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid.
“Fortunately, I have a lot of children,” the Olympic gold medallist added, throwing some shade.
She said that her new book was an “honest” look at her life which she was “extraordinarily proud of.”
However, she added that “unfortunately, the Kardashians and particularly Kris didn’t see it that way.”
The reality TV star said: “Since the book came out, I’ve never talked to Kris again.
“Kim I haven’t spoken to in six to nine months.”
The former Olympic athlete admitted she thought it would be “tough” if one of her children would transition.
