Caitlyn Jenner claims Khloe Kardashian was 'p***** off about something' when she transitioned
Caitlyn Jenner has sparked a backlash by claiming that Khloe Kardashian was “p***** off about something” when she transitioned.
The US reality TV star was born Bruce but came out as a trans woman in 2015, appearing on the cover of Vanity Fair and changing her name to Caitlyn.
Opening up to her I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! campmates, Jenner told what it was like coming out to her children.

She said she had a tough time with Khloe Kardashian, who she raised from a small child when she married her mum Kris Jenner.
Jenner said: “Khloe, for some reason was p***** off about something through this whole process... it’s been five or six years and I’ve really haven’t talked to her since.”
“Khloe and I were really close, I raised Khloe since she was five years old,” she added.
“I don’t know what her issues are.”

Jenner’s words angered viewers of the ITV show, who jumped onto social media to insist that the pair fell out over things Jenner said in her book The Secrets Of My Life – not Kardashian’s feelings about her transition.
On person posted on Twitter: “Khloe has said many times she had a problem with you only when you said some stuff about her mom in your book. She was supportive of you coming out bc she doesn’t support you throwing her mom under a bus.”
Another said: “Why is Caitlyn pretending she doesn’t know why Khloe estranged herself from her? Khloe was very vocal about it, she was upset Caitlyn kept talking negatively about Kris in her book and in interviews.”
“I thought Khloe was on board with Caitlyn’s decision to come out,” said another.
One fan tweeted: “Leave @khloekardashian alone.
“Khloe was the first person to accept Caitlyn and bought her first pair of heels.”
Jenner shares daughters Kendall and Kylie with Kris and helped to raise Kris’s children from her relationship with Robert Kardashian - Kourtney, Khloe, Kim and Rob.
She also has four children from two former marriages.
