Caitlyn Jenner has revealed that she hasn’t spoken to her former step-daughter Kim Kardashian in nine months.

The transgender star, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, has been embroiled in a feud with the Kardashian family since releasing her memoir The Secrets Of My Life.

Caitlyn got candid about her marriage to Kris Jenner in the book – which upset the momager and her three famous daughters, Kourtney, Kim and Khloe.

Although Kim was the one who supported Caitlyn the most during her transition, the Armenian beauty cut ties with her former step-dad soon after the book was released.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain, the 67-year-old said, “I love Kim, she’s a great person. I have such respect for her a mother, as a businessperson – but she is very opinionated. But that’s okay, I love that about her.

“Actually Kim was the first person I talked about it, very straight forward. It’s a big loss in my life not having her there anymore. Kim I haven’t talked to in six or nine months.

“To me that’s sad I love all my children,” Caitlyn continued.

The former Olympian transitioned two years ago, confirming months of speculation in a televised interview with Diane Sawyer.

“When I decided to live authentically, I took each kid to the side one at a time to talk to them as I didn’t want them to gang up on me!

“I told them this is what I might be doing. They have always been supportive from day one. Especially Kendall and Kylie and my Jenner side. They have had a lot of time for me and are nothing but supportive.”

However, it was a different story when it came to the Kardashian side of the family.

“I really don’t talk to them often. So I just deal with that. Fortunately I have a lot of children. On the show I kept my opinions to myself, there were just so many opinionated women. Even on the show I was in background and kept my mouth shut.”

“The book was my story and my opinion on how things happened. It was honest. I am proud of my book but unfortunately the Kardashians and Kris didn’t react well.

“I went overboard to be nice, friendly and open, but also tell my side of the story and since the book came out I’ve never talked to Kris again,” she added.

Kris and Bruce married in 1991, but split in 2015, before he transitioned to Caitlyn. The pair share daughters Kendall, 21, and Kylie, 20.

Kourtney, 38, Kim, 36, Khloe, 33, and Rob, 30, are all from Kris’ first marriage to the late Robert Kardashian, who passed away in September 2003 at the age of 59.
