Kris Jenner is planning to get engaged to her on-again, off-again boyfriend Corey Gamble, Radar Online reported. The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” matriarch’s decision is reportedly a revenge plot against Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce Jenner.
Kris is reportedly upset on how she was portrayed in the media following Caitlyn's transformation into a woman last month. Her alleged “revenge marriage” is reportedly seen as a way to steal the limelight from Caitlyn, who has drawn widespread media attention since her decision to transition into a woman, according to reports.
"She swears it's the real deal between her and Corey [Gamble], but anyone can tell the poor guy's being used,” a source told Radar Online. "Put brutally, he serves a purpose," the source said about the 34-year-old Gamble, who is a road manager with Scooter Braun/SB Projects.
“Kris figures she needs a man at her side right now, and she also needs to come across as a more human, ordinary person,” the source reportedly said. “She’s working out contracts and terms with Corey because she wants to get moving on this pretty quickly.”
Another reason that may have reportedly led to Kris' decision is the comparison made between Caitlyn and Kris’ physical beauty. This also has reportedly fueled Kris' anger and the 59-year-old has not spoken much on Caitlyn's transition, except to hail her as a hero.
“All of a sudden, Kris’ hair and makeup people were always busy when she needed them -- and she found out they’ve been working on Caitlyn in Malibu,” a source told America’s Star magazine recently. “Kris can’t believe Caitlyn stole her glam squad! She is the one who put together this team, and she is totally ticked off that Caitlyn shamelessly poached them!
“The truth is, Kris is not a very nice person, so people much prefer working for Caitlyn, because there’s so much less stress and drama with her.”
Kris and Gamble have been involved with each other since November 2014. Reports about their possible hook-up made the rounds in October 2014 after Kris was spotted with Gamble at Casa Vega in Sherman Oaks, California, the same month. The following month, the two were seen “cuddled” together during a trip to Mexico where they reportedly got together with Kris' friend Joe Francis of "Girls Gone Wild" fame.
