Los Angeles – Now that Caitlyn Jenner has made her debut on the cover of Vanity Fair, she’s opening up about her 23-year marriage to Kris Jenner, momager of the Kardashian clan.
“A lot of times she wasn’t very nice,” Caitlyn tells Vanity Fair. “People would see how I got mistreated. She controlled the money.”
The 65-year-old former Olympian – who was previously known as Bruce Jenner says for the first 15 years of their marriage, she was the breadwinner and Kris “needed me more.”
And as any pop-culture observer knows, once “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” took off, the money came rolling in to Kris’ coffers.
She added: “The first 15 years I felt she needed me more because I was the breadwinner… Then really around the show, when that hit and she was running this whole show and getting credit for it and she had her own money, she didn’t need me as much from that standpoint.
“The relationship was different. I think in a lot of ways she became less tolerant of me. Then I’d get upset and the whole relationship kind of fizzled.”
Speaking to Vanity Fair magazine as part of Caitlyn’s cover shoot, she said: “He was married to me and he wasn’t who he wanted to be so he was miserable… All I was doing was working very hard for my family so that we could all have a wonderful future, and he was pissed off.
“At the end of my relationship with Bruce he definitely had a lot of social anxiety … That was one of the reasons we were in a struggle at the end. We fought a lot because we would go out together and before we got to the end of the block we were in a fight because he started saying, ‘When can we go home?'”
