Kris and Caitlyn Jenner's Ups and Downs Through the Years


The way it was. After 22 years of marriage and raising a blended family together, Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner announced their separation two years before the former Olympian publicly came out as transgender.

“We are living apart,” the Safely founder previously revealed to Us Weekly in October 2013. “But there is no animosity. We are united and committed to our family. We ended a marriage, but that’s not the end of our friendship. I will always love him, but we are no longer a couple in that way. We are happier this way.”

Following their December 2014 divorce, the I Am Cait star publicly announced her transition in 2015 as her relationship with the Jenner Communications founder and their youngest daughters (Kendall and Kylie Jenner) hit a snag. During a February 2016 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, things got heated after the supermodel disinvited the former track star to her debut Victoria’s Secret fashion show.

“Hi dad,” the 818 Tequila founder said during a phone conversation during the episode. “I’m very mad at you about something, so … did you publicly, like, did you have your publicist announce that you were going? Because I don’t know how everyone knows and now it’s a huge story and I’m actually pissed at you.”

She added at the time, “OK, well I don’t want you to go. … You’re gonna take the biggest night of my life and take it away from me? Thank you. No! You can’t! You can come to the f–king after-party, you can’t come!”

Following the father-daughter pair’s disagreement, Kendall revealed during a confessional that she didn’t want her family’s presence to take away her excitement over this career milestone though Kris was already set to attend the runway show.

Over the years, the former couple’s relationship has gone through public highs and lows as they’ve navigated their post-split new normal.

“From my standpoint, our relationship is not as good as it should be,” Caitlyn said during a November 2021 episode of Australia’s Big Brother VIP. “I don’t have any hard feelings towards her. We did a great job and this and that. Yeah, I wish it was closer, but it’s not.”

While the Olympic medalist admitted that their distance might be due to “misgivings” on Kris’ part, Caitlyn speculated, “I think that’s an understatement.”

However, things seemed to turn a corner during Christmas of that year after the New York native publicly thanked her ex-wife — who’s been dating boyfriend Corey Gamble since 2015 — for a set of wine glasses.

“Wow! Thanks @krisjennner and @coreygamble Merry Christmas,” Caitlyn captioned an Instagram Story snap in December 2021, while lounging in pink pajamas next to her present.

Upon Caitlyn’s transition, she confirmed that Kris previously knew about her coming out journey.
 “The rules with Kris and I — don’t dress up, certainly around the house. If you really need to do that, when you’re on the road, take stuff and do that. So, I did that for years,” Caitlyn recalled during the Makers Conference in February 2016.

After their breakup, the Secrets of My Life author gushed about Kris, who furnished her new Malibu residence.
 “The day we took it, on June 1 at 8 a.m., she said I could not come over until that night. I came over and the completely empty house was fully furnished, every TV was working,” Caitlyn revealed during an April 2017 conversation at NYC’s 92nd Street Y. “She’s so well organized. I give her a lot of credit. The dryer even worked. She bought all new stuff. She has very good taste. She worked a deal with Restoration Hardware. It was a very nice thought of hers. I appreciate that.”

While Caitlyn’s mom, Esther Jenner, made headlines after dissing the Kardashians’ reality TV show, a rep for the athlete previously revealed that Caitlyn didn’t feel the same way.
“Caitlyn’s team adamantly denies her mother’s statements as they do not represent Caitlyn’s sentiments or feelings towards the show or Kris Jenner,” a statement read at the time. “Caitlyn has time and time again said that the show is the best thing that has happened to their family, and is on great terms with Kris. Her team was shocked — and never consulted — to hear of Esther speaking to press.”

“When Kris and I separated, it wasn’t because of trans issues. It was for a million other reasons,” Caitlyn told the Daily Mail about the dissolution of their marriage. “Kris and I had a great relationship for a long time. We built an amazing family, but circumstances and people change. And I think the hardest thing is to be able to make those changes together and still be as strong. Our relationship didn’t work anymore and we mutually decided that it was time to split up. There was no animosity.”

You know, we just, you know, it was calm.”

“I think my mom is just super traumatized [inside] and that’s OK,” Kim explained during a confessional during the episode. “Her experience is her experience and we all have to be there for her and there’s no time limit that can be put on her for her to feel completely comfortable again.”
