In case you didn’t know, Caitlyn Jenner has written a memoir titled The Secrets of My Life, which is set for release in April. Given everything Caitlyn has experienced over the past few years, the book is set to drop some major truth bombs – and yes, there will be plenty of pages devoted to her relationship with Kris Jenner.

Us Weekly reports The Secrets of My Life will reveal that Caitlyn told Kris early on in their relationship about wanting to transition from Bruce to Caitlyn, but that Kris “made her suppress her true self,” according to a source. “Kris pushed her into the closet.”

A different insider says the claims are “unfounded,” and that Caitlyn is bitter, and airing their laundry because “Caitlyn resents Kris for a life she didn’t get to live.”

The former couple were married in 1991, stayed together for 22 years, and have two daughters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner. When Caitlyn married Kris she also became stepfather to Kris’ children Kourtney, Kim, Khloé and Rob Kardashian.

Caitlyn, a Republican transgender activist who took U.S. President Donald Trump to task after his recent move that threatened to make life difficult for trans students, has documented her transition and new life as a woman through the E! series I Am Cait.

The tension between Caitlyn and Kris around Caitlyn’s decision to transition was also exposed in a 2015 Vanity Fair interview, when Caitlyn said Kris knew of her gender-identity issues.

Well, whatever we think we know now, we’ll definitely know more once Caitlyn’s book is released – and we’re sure reigning momager Kris will have some things to say about it, too.
