While the rest of the Kardashian and Jenner clan played a prominent part in Caitlyn's public reveal of her transition, Kris Jenner remained noticeable quiet on the subject.

After Caitlyn's Vanity Fair cover hit the internet, Kris stayed silent on social media and spoke openly about her mixed emotions as part of the magazine's interviews. Kris referred to how 'miserable' Caitlyn was when they were married because, 'he wasn't who he wanted to be'. She added: '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.'

Caitlyn's response then caused controversy in the family, after she blamed Kris for the break down in their marriage and suggested she wasn't supportive of her choice.

'Twenty per cent was gender and 80 per cent was the way I was treated. She had her own money, she didn't need me as much from that standpoint. The relationship was different. I think in a lot of ways she became less tolerant of me. Then I'd get upset and the whole relationship kind of fizzled.'

Now, I Am Cait has released an emotional clip showing their first meeting, as Kris breaks down over the way Caitlyn has behaved to those closest to her. Speaking about the trans friends she has made and her work in the LGBT community, a tearful Kris argues: 'You're sensitive and amazing to all these new people in your life, just not so sensitive and amazing to the family you've left behind.'

The parent trap

This comes after Kim made similar comments, telling Caitlyn: 'I read the Vanity Fair, and I think there are some things that you said that you might not realise are hurtful. Then it said, "Had Kris been accepting to who I am, we still would be together." And that's the most unfair thing in the world to say.'

'We want to support you and be there for you,' added Khloé. 'But, we don't think that that entails you speaking negatively about my mom. In our opinion, you don't even need to mention my mom. Let's not drag my mom through the mud.'

'I try to do everything I can to be nice, reach out,' Caitlyn says to Kris in the new clip. '[But] you have to see it from my perspective. Be an ally when it comes to dealing with the kids.'

The discussion then gets even more heated, when Kris appears to bring up a comment Caitlyn made about Kris and Kylie, where she suggested they had been a distraction when it came to her embracing Caitlyn. Kris begins: 'When you feel like you gave your whole life to somebody and the sum of it all was you were a distraction…'

Caitlyn then interrupts to defend herself, saying: 'Don't go there. This is not the issue. I was defending myself. It was a distraction from the sense of who I was. This doesn't mean I didn't love you or the kids.'

It's a pretty raw look at the difficulties any family faces in this situation, especially when it comes to a parent perhaps denying who they truly are, in order to raise and protect their family. In any case, after Kylie's recent 18th birthday, it's great to see Caitlyn and Kris are clearly getting on a lot better now the air has been cleared. The pair were pictured together, along with Kris's new boyfriend Corey Gamble and no-one looked like there was any bad blood.
