Everyone can agree that the mega-successful group of entrepreneurs known as The Kardashians have taken social media presence and branding to the next level. No doubt their marketing strategy should be taught in classes worldwide. However, when many think about the Kardashians they fail to remember that they are merely one half of a huge blended family. Their stepmother, Caitlyn Jenner, also brought four children into her marriage with ex-wife Kris Jenner and one of her sons, Brody, has been revealing deep family secrets about his relationship with Caitlyn and how it’s never been a bed of roses.
Growing up with a world-renowned Olympic gold medalist for a father would seem like a dream come true for most children. Unfortunately for Brody Jenner that was not the case. Although his father Bruce was a star athlete with tons of accolades under his belt he didn’t have much of a connection with his son Brody. Showbiz Cheatsheet reports that a source close to their family drama admits Brody has always had a very strained relationship with Caitlyn that goes all the way back before she transitioned. And it all began around the time Kris Jenner became Brody’s stepmother.
“Brody still holds on to a lot of hurt feelings and resentment towards the Kardashians,” the source claimed.
One person, especially, came between Brody and the rest of the family. According to the source, Brody was never able to build a relationship with Kris, although he tried. And that became an issue when he tried to get to know his half-sisters Kendall and Kylie.”
Unfortunately, the hurt and bad feelings have continued even now after Bruce became Caitlyn, and there may never be a chance for them to truly reconcile their past hurts.
Caitlyn’s struggles with coming to terms with who she really is have been heavily documented, though the thing most people fail to realize is that she and Brody’s relationship have never been on the greatest of terms. And now it seems like there may never be a chance for the two of them to reconcile their issues because Brody now has to deal with an entirely different person he doesn’t even recognize.
“I didn’t really grow up with my dad,” he said. “When I was really little, we got to spend a little bit of time. But when he started the family with the Kardashian family and all that, I didn’t really see much of him.” Their relationship became even more strained when Bruce transitioned into Caitlyn. According to Brody, he was just getting to know Bruce, when he decided to become a woman. When that happened, she became a completely different person and Brody no longer felt that he knew her.
“She’s totally different,” Brody said of Caitlyn.
It’s sad that the two of them are in such a bad place right now, but hopefully, they can both come together and move past their issues because there’s nothing more important than family.
