Bruce Jenner’s Kids: Now We Know Why He “Disappeared Out Of Our Lives” (VIDEO)
Bruce Jenner’s kids say his admission that he is transgender sheds new light on their childhood and the long periods of time he went without seeing them. See video below.
As Gossip Cop reported, Burt, Cassandra (Casey), Brandon, and Brody Jenner all participated in an interview for their father’s “20/20” special, and spoke candidly about his transition. On Monday, “Good Morning America” aired another clip from the sit-down, in which they talk about the personal impact of Jenner’s gender identity revelation.
“We have a very complex relationship. He’s disappeared out of our lives, especially out of my life,” says Cassandra, who says she’s now “looking forward to this next chapter.” “I personally hope that his journey leads to the place that he wants it to,” she says.
Brandon shares, “Us missing a time of our lives is still probably the hardest thing for us to deal with. We’re trying not to look back, we’re just looking forward.” Sitting next to his dad, he goes on to explain, “In seeing him come out to me and explain his true self, I was more proud right then to carry the last name Jenner and to be a part of the family than at any time before.”
Burt says, “The one thing that I think that we have gained that means more to us than anything is the honesty.” And, as Gossip Cop previously noted, Brody said during Friday’s broadcast, “The first thing I thought was just, like, ‘It finally makes sense.'”
And for his part, Jenner acknowledges to Diane Sawyer, “The big formative years for them, I was really struggling with these issues. I talked to all the boys about this after the fact, that, yeah, I didn’t do a good job, and I apologize to my kids for that.”
As Gossip Cop reported earlier, Burt and Cassandra’s mother Chrystie Crownover also appeared on “GMA” Monday morning, opening up about watching the special together as a family. Check out the video below to see all the new clips, including comments from some experts on the transition process.
