Shortly after she made her big debut as Caitlyn Jenner, the woman once known as Bruce was met with an overwhelming amount of support from her family, fans and famous people alike.
Her ex-wife Kris Jenner was notably silent — but in the July issue of Vanity Fair, which hits newsstands on June 9, the momager, 59, sounds off on her ex’s transition — and sheds light on the end of their 22-year union.

Per People magazine, Kris says her marriage ended up abruptly when the 65-year-old Olympian “just decided, ‘I’m done,’” she tells VF.
Speaking to Diane Sawyer, Caitlyn called Kris a “good person” and said, “Honestly, if she had been really good with it and understanding of it, we’d probably still be together” — but the mother-of-six’s interpretation of how things unfolded told a very different story.

She calls their separation “the most passive-aggressive thing I think I’ve ever experienced.”
Kris continues to Vanity Fair, asking rhetorically, “Why would you want to be married and have kids if this is all what you wanted since you were a little boy? Why would you not explain this all to me?”

Caitlyn says she began her transition slightly before meeting Kris — and, at the time, she was even “a solid B-cup” — but Kris insists she was never told the full truth.
“When I met Bruce, he told me that he had done hormones back in the early ‘80s,” she explains. “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.”
She continues, “Nobody mentioned a gender issue.”

Caitlyn also says they had an honest conversation about cross-dressing, establishing rules that she could wear women’s clothing as long as she was outside the house when she was traveling alone.
But the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has no recollection of that talk. Explaining her only exposure to his cross-dressing came when “somebody mentioned that at one point in his life, he liked to dress up.”
Hopefully, all sides will be heard as Caitlyn continues to document her transition and share her story with the world.
