The world may have been floored when Caitlyn Jenner revealed she was transitioning from male to female last spring, but for Kylie Jenner, it came as absolutely no shock. In fact, she says she’s known about her dad’s little secret forever!
Don’t ask, don’t tell, right? Kylie Jenner, 18, reveals that her entire family spent years living under that exact same motto: Everyone knew Caitlyn Jenner, 66, had a massive secret regarding her gender identity, but no one ever talked about it. Read her candid confession about Caitlyn’s transition here!
“I’ve always known,” she tells Marie Claire. “It was a secret we just couldn’t talk about.” Both Kylie and Kendall Jenner, 20, along with their other siblings, have admitted to catching Caitlyn — then Bruce — in the act of dressing like a woman (or something equally confusing), but since they never openly discussed the situation until last year, no one ever really knew what was going on.
So the family’s shock and confusion after Caitlyn’s tell-all Diane Sawyer interview in April 2015 was definitely genuine: They truly hadn’t been told everything that was going on, even if they knew there was a big secret being hidden.
Obviously this whole situation was tough on Kylie and her family, but she and the 66-year-old are closer than ever these days. “I like her better than Bruce,” the teenager admitted to Ellen DeGeneres back in November. “Because we talk about makeup and clothes and we bond a lot more.”
“But not only that — I feel like there’s not a huge secret in the family,” she added. “I feel like there was always this big secret. Now, I feel like we hang out a lot more and there’s no secrets.”
Are you surprised that Kylie always knew Caitlyn was transgender, HollywoodLifers?
