Bruce Jenner fired his ex-wife Kris Jenner as his manager for an upcoming TV show that will follow his transition into a woman, the Sun reported. The decision comes after Bruce revealed he was more of a woman than a man in a tell-all interview with Diane Sawyer last month.
"Kris is as you see on the show - bossy, nosey and controlling. She didn't want to relinquish control because it makes it harder for her to sort out fees for Keeping Up With The Kardashians," a source said, according to the Mirror, which cited the Sun.
Kris has so far helped the Jenner family clock in millions of dollars by managing the family's affairs, including that of her children Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and Rob, and her daughters with Bruce -- Kendall and Kylie.
Beginning July 26, Olympic gold medalist Bruce will appear in eight one-hour episodes on E! News where he will talk about his transition into a woman. According to a report last week by Radar Online, Kris had cut off all ties with Bruce after an alleged hostile treatment by her former husband.
“Kris called Bruce over the weekend and said it would be a nice gesture for him to issue a statement saying that he appreciated all of her love and support,” a source told Radar Online. “She said he owed it to her, because she is the mother of their two daughters, Kendall and Kylie. ... But Bruce didn’t think there was a need to do that, and thought that the show spoke for itself. This wasn’t the Bruce that Kris knew."
“She cut off all contact with Bruce because she said she is disgusted by his lack of support,” the source added, according to Radar Online.
However, Kris has shown support for Bruce, along with the rest of the family, after Bruce said his ex-wife knew he was taking female hormones years ago, the Mirror reported.
