Caitlyn Jenner revealed her new identity to the world on Monday by gracing the cover of Vanity Fair in women's lingerie. Before her transition, the 65-year-old former Olympian claimed that ex-wife Kris Jenner allowed her to cross-dress while the two were married. Kris denied the allegations in the same interview, though she admitted she wasn't entirely ignorant of Caitlyn's desire to become a woman.
Caitlyn said that Kris agreed to certain regulations that allowed her to wear women's clothing while traveling alone and not around the family. However, Kris is denying the claim. Caitlyn also maintained that Kris spotted her wearing women’s clothing while the two were still living together. Kris said she didn't know about Caitlyn's desire to become a woman, though she was aware the former athlete had received hormone therapy before they were married in 1991, according to People.
"When I met Bruce, he told me that he had done hormones back in the early '80s," the 59-year-old told Vanity Fair in the upcoming July issue. "This was a conversation that took place in the early '90s. So, what he was telling me happened a decade earlier, and he never really explained it."
Kris also discussed the separation and divorce, which she called "the most passive-aggressive thing I think I've ever experienced." The two married in April of 1991, just one month after Kris and her first husband, Robert Kardashian were divorced. Caitlyn had four children from two previous marriages.
Caitlyn claimed Kris knew about her hormone treatments and side effects, which included breast growth. Kris dismissed it as nothing more than “a little bit of a man boob situation,” though Caitlyn said she was a “good solid B cup.”
Caitlyn said Kris showed her "love and acceptance" during E!'s "About Bruce" special on May 18. Kris also spoke positively of the couple's 24 years together. "We had so much in common that it was kind of a match made in heaven. We went to races. We played golf. We went snow skiing,” she said. "I mean, there wasn't anything we didn't do, and we could not keep our hands off each other."
Caitlyn first confirmed her change to Diane Sawyer in an April 24 interview on ABC's "20/20", saying, “For all intents and purposes, I am a woman.” She told Sawyer that her former life as a man was difficult. “I look at women all the time and think how lucky they are that they can wake up in the morning and be themselves,” she said. “I was running away from who I was.”
