As Gossip Cop has reported, Jenner was wed to Crownover and Thompson before his marriage to Kris Jenner. He fathered son Burt and daughter Cassandra (Casey) with Crownover, and went on to have Brandon and Brody with Thompson. He then expanded his brood again with Kris, welcoming Kendall and Kylie, and becoming stepfather to the Kardashians.
Jenner held two viewings for his recent “20/20” special, in which he came out as transgender and said he identifies as a woman. One of the screenings was with Crownover and Thompson, both of whom spoke out after the broadcast. As Gossip Cop reported, Crownover said her ex-husband was in “pain” and crying as he watched his emotional interview play out for the world.
Thompson, meanwhile, shared a lengthy, intimate piece via the Huffington Post, in which she recalled her relationship with Jenner in detail, including when he first told her he was transgender. She acknowledged the role it played in leading to their divorce, but expressed happiness that Jenner now “has found the strength and the courage to fulfill his dream.”
Thompson posted the photo of herself and Crownover flanking Jenner on Instagram, showing the former Olympian with a slight smile and his arms around the women. In the caption, Thompson shared a link to her Huffington Post story, and wrote, “Thank you for your loving & kind response! #chrystiebruceandme.” See the picture below.
