Casey Jenner: My Relationship With Caitlyn Is “Much Better” Than With Dad Bruce
Casey Jenner, the eldest daughter of Caitlyn Jenner (formerly known as Bruce Jenner), says in a new interview that she has a closer relationship with Caitlyn than she did with Bruce. “My relationship with Caitlyn is much better than with Bruce, but we still have a lot of work to do,” admits Casey.
In an interview with People about her father transitioning to a female, Casey says she went years without talking to her dad on the phone, but now she hangs out with Caitlyn “every couple of weeks and talk[s] on the phone.” Casey notes, “[Caitlyn’s] happier and more appreciative of her family. She is trying harder and there is a softness to Caitlyn that is new to me. I think part of that is that when someone is happier, they are just nicer.”
Casey, who first learned of her father’s transition when she was 11 years old, says she loves talking about makeup, clothes and other “girly things” with Caitlyn. “There is so much more to being a woman than our external appearance. I am really looking forward to exploring that more with her,” says Casey. She also reveals that she was first introduced to Caitlyn at a girls’ night gathering a few months ago at her dad’s house. In Caitlyn’s Vanity Fair interview, the former Olympian explained that the girls’ nights were a way for her to introduce herself in a comfortable environment to family and friends.
“I am pleased with how beautiful and comfortable she seems every time I see her,” says Casey, adding, “She seems to be having a lot of fun with it!” What do you think about Casey saying she gets along better with Caitlyn Jenner than she did Bruce?
