It’s all about the money for Kris Jenner — which is reportedly why she’s begun the process of changing her last name back to Kardashian! The momager is ready to fully put her split from Caitlyn Jenner behind her and totally re-brand herself, a new report claims.
You might want to get used to saying ‘Kris Kardashian,’ because Kris Jenner, 59, is allegedly moving full steam ahead with legally changing her name! The reality star has toyed with the idea before, but now that she’s divorced from Caitlyn Jenner, 65, she’s ready to make the switch, according to a new report.
“It’s time to dump Jenner and rebrand herself,” a source told InTouch. “Kardashian is the core name associated with the family brand. Kris thinks the name will bring more bang for the buck.” The mag also reported that Kris has already changed her stationary and letterheads to reflect the change, which she has begun the paperwork for.
Needless to say, things have been a bit rocky between Kris — whose cookbook you can buy here — and Caitlyn ever since their split and the former Olympian’s reveal that she, then Bruce Jenner, was transitioning into a woman. Things got even more heated after her big reveal and Vanity Fair interview, which Kris took offense to. Their first meeting, after months of not speaking, was filmed for an episode of I Am Cait, which airs Sept. 6.
In sneak peek clips for the episode, we see the initial meeting is friendly at first, with the exes sharing a hug and Kris even complimenting Caitlyn on her look and shoes. But things get more awkward as they head inside for their big talk, and another video shows things get really intense once things get started.
“You’re sensitive and amazing to all these new people in your life, but you’re not sensitive and amazing to the family you left behind,” Kris tells her ex, in tears. “I try to do what I can. Be nice, reach out. You have to see it from my perspective. Be an ally when it comes to dealing with the kids.” Watch the whole thing go down on I Am Cait this Sunday on E!
