According to a source, Keeping Up with the Kardashians‘ Khloé Kardashian is remaining friendly with Caitlyn Jenner for the sake of her half-sisters Kylie Jenner and Kendall Jenner. This news contradicts earlier reports by Caitlyn and Khloé and she hasn’t communicated for that past five or six years.
While appearing on the reality show, I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!, Caitlyn spoke candidly about her relationship with all of the Kardashian and Jenner kids. She noted that when she transitioned, she had a special talk with each of the kids. Most of them were fine, but Khloé allegedly had a problem with her. As a result, they haven’t really spoken in five or six years. However, a source close to the family disputes this bold claim.
According to a source that spoke to Us Weekly, Khloé hasn’t cut off her former-step parent, Caitlyn, but just isn’t as close as before her transition. The insider revealed, “Khloé and Caitlyn aren’t the closest, but the idea that they haven’t spoken in 5-6 years is crazy.” The source continued, “They have seen each other, they have spoken.” Then, the insider close to the family said that Khloé would never have a bad relationship with Caitlyn because she’s considerate of her two half-sisters, saying, “For her love of Kylie and Kendall, she wouldn’t have a bad relationship with her.”
Though the true status of the relationship is still blurry, fans can decide for themselves what is really happening based on the receipts. Back on October 24th, Caitlyn supposedly canceled an appearance at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino opening in Hollywood, Florida, in hopes of avoiding Khloé. Then on October 29th, Khloé flaked out on Caitlyn’s 70th birthday party at Nobu, saying it was because she had to work, but instead sent flowers. While it seems a little odd for Caitlyn to completely fabricate the story about Khloé not speaking to her for years, it wouldn’t be the first time Caitlyn made up details about her marriage to Kris Jenner during the famed Vanity Fair interview, which happened to be the source of the tensions between Khloé and Caitlyn.
While Caitlyn seems prone to hyperbole, there’s likely some validity to her claims that she and Khloé don’t get along. That’s such a bold claim to make without it being a least a little factual. The source who says there’s no bad blood between them could be doing anything to protect their respective brands. The source could also be defending Khloé from looking insensitive towards Caitlyn as a result of her transition. Everyone wants to belive the Kardashian/Jenner family is as thick as thieves, because if that goes away, the family brand collapses. Khloé probably smiles and bites her tongue whenever the topic of Caitlyn comes up, but she’s probably not interested in spending time with her or dealing with her. If that’s the case, hopefully, the new year will see the end of their grudge and they can begin to be genuinely friendly, not just for the sake of Kendall and Kylie.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs Sundays at 9pm EST on E!
