One big happy family? The Jenners and Kardashians may seem united behind patriarch Bruce Jenner following his celebrated interview with Diane Sawyer, but as sources reveal in the new issue of Us Weekly, things aren’t as harmonious as they seem.
While both sides have publicly voiced their support for the former Olympian, who revealed to Sawyer that he is transgender and identifies as a woman, there’s still some division behind the scenes. (On the Kardashian side are Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Rob, Kendall, Kylie, and Kris; on the Jenner side are Burt, Casey, Brandon, and Brody, Bruce’s kids from his marriages to Chrystie Scott and Linda Thompson.)
“It’s still Camp Jenner and Camp Kardashian, in a major way,” one insider tells Us.
Case in point: In order to keep the peace, Bruce scheduled two separate viewing sessions for the 20/20 interview, one with his Keeping Up With the Kardashians family, and one with Scott and his four eldest kids, who appeared on the ABC special in a show of solidarity with their father.
Burt, 36, hinted at the tension between the two groups on Twitter the day after the interview aired. “Having a hard time not putting a few people on blast who were not supporters beforehand, but want to act like they were all along,” he wrote. The since-deleted tweet, a source tells Us, was directed at the Kardashians. “He feels they’re only supportive now for publicity,” the insider says.
