Kris Jenner speaks out in Vanity Fair's piece on Caitlyn Jenner, to whom Kris was married when Caitlyn was Bruce Jenner. And though Kris has said she's happy for her ex, it sounds like there's still quite a bit of contention between them. "Neither side wants to appear rancorous, but the two sides agree on virtually nothing," writes Vanity Fair writer Buzz Bissinger, per Radar. Kris, for example, says that when she met Bruce, he told her he hadn't used hormones in a decade, but Caitlyn says that, as Bruce, he made sure Kris was fully aware of his gender struggle and the fact that he had used hormones up until recently. They also disagree on just how large now-Caitlyn's breasts were when Kris and Bruce met, and whether Kris knew then-Bruce sometimes wore women's clothing, Us reports.

As for the end of their marriage, Caitlyn says that once the Kardashian reality empire was created, Kris "didn’t need me as much ... I think in a lot of ways she became less tolerant of me. ... A lot of times she wasn't very nice. People would see how I got mistreated. She controlled the money … all that kind of stuff." But Kris says Bruce "was married to me and he wasn't who he wanted to be so he was miserable. ... All I was doing was working very hard for my family so that we could all have a wonderful future, and he was pissed off. At the end of my relationship with Bruce he definitely had a lot of social anxiety. ... That was one of the reasons we were in a struggle at the end." She blames the marriage's end mostly on Caitlyn's gender issues, while Caitlyn says "20% was gender and 80% was the way I was treated." Bissinger's take, as he explains to Today: "I think Bruce downplayed [his gender issues] and I think Kris had a sense that 'whatever happened in the past I can fix it.'"
