Caitlyn Jenner opens up on strained relationship with Kris Jenner

Caitlyn Jenner, 72, has addressed her relationship with ex-wife Kris Jenner, 66, after the pair went their separate ways six years ago.

Caitlyn was married to Kris for 23 years and welcomed two children, Kendall, 26, and Kylie, 24, over the course of their relationship.

Following their split, Caitlyn came out publicly as transgender.

While the two are still in touch as they co-parent Kendall and Kylie together, Caitlyn explained that she thinks her relationship with her ex isn’t as good as it should be.

The Olympian, who’s currently starring on Australia’s Big Brother VIP, explained the situation to her housemates.

She said: “From my standpoint, our relationship is not as good as it should be. I don't have any hard feelings towards her. We did a great job and this and that. Yeah, I wish it was closer, but it's not.”

Caitlyn was then asked if Kris has any “misgivings” towards her, to which she replied: “I think that’s an understatement.

“But yeah, I mean, our relationship is OK. But it’s not — I think it could be better, just because of the kids.

“That’s always the way when you have that. It's all about how the mother and father get along together. Is it easy, is it good when they see each other? Is there any tension?,” Caitlyn continued.

However, the 72 year old later explained that she hadn’t expected them to come see her after leaving the Australian jungle.

Caitlyn’s former step-daughter Kim Kardashian also dismissed claims that the family didn’t want to support her, and insisted that the I’m A Celeb team never got in touch with them.

Kim tweeted: “No one from I’m a Celeb even reached out and asked for letters, appearances or anything from any Kardashians or Jenners.”

While her daughters Kendall and Kylie weren’t able to come over to Australia, Caitlyn said they gave her a warm welcome when she came home.

She told OK!: “Kendall and Kylie put up some welcome home balloons for me. Then a few weeks later it was Christmas, so I caught up with everyone then.”
