Kim Kardashian criticises Caitlyn Jenner’s book and says she “doesn’t respect” her character
Kim Kardashian had some bad things to say about Caitlyn Jenner’s new memoir on The Ellen Degeneres Show.
The I Am Cait star has opened up about her transition and new life as a transgender woman in her latest book, but some of her comments about her ex-wife Kris Jenner have proved controversial with the Kardashian family.
In the book, The Secrets of My Life, Caitlyn accuses Kris of “alienating” her from her children ever since she came out as transgender two years ago. Chatting to Ellen, Kim K dismissed these claims and labelled them “hurtful” and “not tasteful”.
She explained: “My heart breaks for my mum, you know, because I feel like she’s been through so much and there’s, you know… [Caitlyn is] promoting this book and she’s saying all these things and you know, I just don’t think it’s necessary, and I just feel like it’s unfair, things aren’t truthful.
“[She’s] not [honest] with certain things about my mum or other things. I mean, I feel like it’s taken her a really long time to be honest with herself, so I don’t expect her to be honest about [Kris] now, but it’s just so hurtful. Like I just, I wish her all the success in the world, but not at our expense.”
Kim admitted that she is currently giving Caitlyn the silent treatment. She said: “I haven’t talked to her in a couple of weeks and I’ll always, I mean, I’ll always love her. That was my step-dad for so many years.
“She taught me about character and so much growing up and I just feel like I don’t respect the character that she’s showing now. But like I said, we, I’ll still always have a major love for her, for who she was in my life. I’m really sentimental; I think my mum’s that way.
“It’s still Kendall and Kylie’s dad, so I want to be respectful, but I just feel like there’s no need for a book. You know, tell your story but just don’t bash other people. I just think it’s, like, not tasteful.”
