Caitlyn Jenner Jealous Of Laverne Cox?
“Cait’s Not Feeling Laverne,” reads a headline in the latest edition of the National Enquirer. The accompanying story declares, “Caitlyn has it out for transgender toast-of-Tinseltown Laverne Cox!” In fact, it’s point-blank said that Jenner feels “jealousy toward” the “Orange Is The New Black” actress.
A so-called “source” claims to the supermarket tabloid, “Caitlyn hates that it is all about Laverne.” The alleged tipster goes on, “She is presenting at the Emmys and staring in TV projects, and no one wants Cait anymore. It doesn’t help that Laverne is younger and prettier, too.”
But while it’s true that Cox does have a few TV gigs and presented at the Emmy Awards earlier this month, the rivalry painted by the magazine is pure fiction. She and Jenner have been pals since before the Olympian even made her official debut as Caitlyn more than a year ago. They’ve repeatedly praised each other in interviews, and have also worked together.
Now a rep for Jenner confirms to Gossip Cop that the two women are “quite friendly.” And far from her “having it out” for Cox, it seems like the National Enquirer has it out for Jenner. This is the same outlet that two weeks ago ran a mean-spirited story about how no magazine wants to feature the transgender star in a nude shoot. Of course, Jenner had no interest in participating in one anyway, but the tabloid just wanted to be cruel and mock her looks.
