Caitlyn Jenner’s Distanced Perspective on Kim Kardashian’s Sex Tape Scandal
During the tumultuous period of Kim Kardashian’s infamous sex tape leak in 2007, Caitlyn Jenner, who was married to Kris Jenner at the time, made a conscious decision to distance herself from the unfolding drama. In hindsight, Caitlyn recollects her initial response, stating, “Whatever’s going on, I don’t know what it is, and I’m going to go to the golf course.”
The 73-year-old Olympian confessed on Sky’s three-part docuseries, “House of Kardashian,” that she chose to stay out of the controversy entirely. She revealed, “Kris never talked to me about it. I never talked to Kimberly about it. I don’t know what happened, why it happened.”
When asked if she had any insight into whether Kris and Kim had collaborated in releasing the NSFW footage, Caitlyn responded, “I have no idea. I never, ever once had that conversation—or did I want to have that conversation.”
Kim Kardashian’s Sex Tape Scandal and Regrets
Kim Kardashian’s sex tape, created during her relationship with Ray J, was leaked several months before the premiere of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” The scandal was addressed in the show’s inaugural episode, with Kris joking in a confessional, “When I first heard about Kim’s sex tape, as her mother, I wanted to kill her. But as her manager, I knew that I had a job to do, and I really just wanted her to move past it.”
In 2021, when “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” concluded its 20-season run, Kim expressed that the sex tape had always been something the public “held over my head,” despite her successful career as a reality star and entrepreneur. She shared her feelings during the show’s reunion special, saying, “That is something that I have to live with for the rest of my life. I try not to have any regrets, but it’s probably the one thing I wish didn’t exist, and if I could erase any of the stupid things that I’ve done in life, that’s probably it.”
As for the current relationship between Kim and Caitlyn, who divorced Kris in 2015 after nearly 24 years of marriage, it appears that their dynamic has evolved since the end of “KUWTK.” Caitlyn recently shared on ITV’s “This Morning,” “When you have as many kids as I have, you’re closer to some than you are to others, and it’s kind of that way through there, through that side of the family.” She further explained, “I’m much closer to the Jenner side, you know, with Brandon and Brody and my son Burt, my daughter Casey.”
