Kim Kardashian hurt by Caitlyn Jenner's book


The transgender reality star released book The Secrets of My Life this week (beg24Apr17) and her ex-wife Kris Jenner, who received an advanced manuscript, denounced the "made up" claims within the book in an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, adding that Caitlyn, formerly known as Bruce, didn't have anything nice to say about her.

When Kris' daughter Kim sat for a TV interview, her first since her October 2016 Paris robbery ordeal, with U.S. chat show host Ellen DeGeneres this week, she admitted she felt the book was both unfair and unnecessary.

“My heart breaks for my mom because I feel like she’s been through so much,” Kim said. “She’s (Caitlyn's) promoting this book and she’s saying all these things. And I just don’t think it’s necessary. I just feel like it’s unfair, things aren’t truthful.

"I feel like it’s taken her a really long time to be honest with herself, so I don’t expect her to be honest about my mom now... But it’s just so hurtful. I wish her all the success in the world, but not at our expense.”

The 36-year-old added that she will always love Caitlyn, but they haven't been in touch for a few weeks. However she will remain respectful of her because she's still the father of her half-sisters Kendall and Kylie.

"That was my stepdad for so many years," she continued. "She taught me about character and so much growing up, and I just feel like I don’t respect the character that she’s showing now... like there’s no need for a book. Tell your story, but just don’t bash other people I just think it's not tasteful.”

The full interview airs on Thursday (27Apr17).
