Bruce Jenner’s former wife Kris Jenner was seen crying in a video clip while talking to her daughter Kim Kardashian about Bruce’s transition into a woman. The clip was from a two-part special series of the reality TV show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."

The special episode called “Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce” will be aired later this month and will show how the family reacted to Bruce's revelations.

The clip was released on Monday and was aired on the NBC's Today show, where Kris was seen struggling with the news. Kris broke down during a conversation with her daughter Kim about Bruce Jenner’s gender transition.

"I have these memories of this life, and I feel sometimes like it didn't exist," Kris said, in the clip, according to E! News, talking about Bruce’s transition. Kris and Bruce had divorced in December.

Kim tries to settle her mother and reportedly says: "He has to deal with this for his entire life of waking up and feeling like 'whoa, this isn't my body. This doesn't feel comfortable,'" adding: "You really have to like let go."

Bruce had earlier said, according to Us Weekly, that of the Kardashian girls, Kim has been "the most accepting and the easiest to talk to" by far. During the "20/20" interview with Diane Sawyer, Bruce had also said that Kim’s husband Kanye West had helped her understand Bruce’s situation.

"He [Kanye West] says to Kim, 'Look, I can be married to the most beautiful woman in the world, and I am. I can have the most beautiful daughter in the world, and I have that. But I'm nothing if I can't be me. If I can't be true to myself, it doesn't mean anything,'" Bruce had said in the interview, according to E! News.

The first part of the special episode will premiere on E! on Sunday, May 17, at 9:00 p.m. EDT and the second part will follow on Monday, May 18, at the same time. The first of the eight one-hour episodes from the untitled docuseries on Bruce’s transition will be aired on July 26.
