Caitlyn Jenner: I Was a 36B in the ’80s and Got My Breasts Removed, Kris Jenner Knew

Caitlyn Jenner’s transition has been a long time coming. In a new clip from the Makers Conference, the former Olympian, 66, opened up about her first attempt at transitioning from a male to a female in the '80s.

“[I] started on hormones. But yeah, I was a good 36B, and I loved them,” Caitlyn said. “I thought, 'This is fabulous!' My mission at that point was to transition before I was 40. Got to 39, I just couldn’t go any further.”

A few months later, she met her future wife, Kris Jenner

“We hit it off from day one,” Caitlyn recalled of her ex. “I was very honest with her — I had to be, I was a 36B! Everything was heading in the right direction. I made this decision to kind of move on in my life — Kris and I together, and this family. OK, I’ve got to get rid of these gender things and get off hormones and this and that.”

Caitlyn even went so far as to get rid of her B cups.

“I actually had my boobs removed,” she revealed. “I never told anybody that.”

During their 23 years of marriage, Caitlyn revealed that Kris had her own ways of handling her husband’s unusual behavior.

“The rules with Kris and I — don’t dress up, certainly around the house. If you really need to do that, when you’re on the road, take stuff and do that. So I did that for years,” Caitlyn said.

The couple finalized their divorce in December 2014 after more than a year of separation. Kris has not responded to these latest claims. The momager has previously admitted to being upset with her ex’s damning Vanity Fair interview, but the pair have since moved past it and have attended events to support their children.
