Caitlyn Jenner is not demanding her kids call her “mom” instead of “dad,” despite a report. Gossip Cop can exclusively bust this story. We’re told by a spokesperson that the claims are false.
The untrue article comes courtesy of RadarOnline, which exclaims in a headline, “Caitlyn Jenner’s Shocking Demands Exposed: ‘Don’t Call Me Dad!'” This spring will mark three years since Jenner transitioned from Bruce to Caitlyn and began living life as a woman. Now according to the site, the transgender star believes “three years is long enough for her kids to get on board with calling her ‘mom.'”
A so-called “source” is quoted as claiming that Jenner’s “own daughters,” namely Kendall and Kylie, “still refuse to call her ‘mom.'” Contends the website’s supposed snitch, “They call her ‘dad’ and it drives Caitlyn crazy.” Consequently, the alleged tipster maintains Jenner has told her children to “please not call her ‘dad’ anymore” because she’s “sick and tired of it.”
“And she not only wants her [female] moniker to be recited by her children,” the online publication goes on to assert, “but she wants her granddaughter to do the same.” The purported “source” claims, “She has begged Kylie to have Stormi raised calling her ‘grandmother.'” The outlet also tries to connect this to its untrue contentions from a previous story about Jenner being “terrified” of losing her nose from cancer and using the health scare to “guilt trip” her family into spending time with her.
The blog’s questionable “insider” alleges, “She’s made it clear she’s the grandmother and needs to spend time with her granddaughter… But they don’t want the baby to call her grandma and have told her that.” Of course, these claims are a bit ridiculous. Kylie only gave birth to Stormi on February 1, less than two months ago. She’s not going to be calling anyone anything for quite some time.
It’s also suspicious that only Kendall and Kylie are mentioned when Jenner has several other children. Similarly, it’s strange to only bring up Stormi calling her “grandmother” when the Olympian already has multiple grandkids, who, unlike the infant, can actually talk. Do these supposed “mom” and “grandmother” requirements not apply to the whole family? It almost seems like the site just wanted a sensational Jenner story that it could tie to her two most famous kids.
But Jenner has already made it clear that she has no problem being called “dad,” and Kylie herself pointed out as much in a 2015 Instagram post. More recently, in a “20/20” interview last year about how Jenner’s transition changed her relationships with her children, she specifically said she still goes by “dad” with her kids. She has never had an interest in changing that and being referred to as a “mom,” contrary to the claims above. In fact, a rep for Jenner exclusively tells Gossip Cop the whole story is “B.S.”
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
