The Kardashian-Jenner family is immense and inclusive, encompassing not just blood relations but also friends and spouses--but, sometimes, there are people who still don’t click. That eternal truth came back around this week, when it emerged that Brody Jenner, the son of Caitlyn Jenner, reportedly feels that he has never been accepted by the family, despite his attempts to bond.
According to Hollywood Life, a source close to Brody reported that the star of The Hills:
“Still holds on to a lot of hurt feelings and resentment towards the Kardashians. Brody still feels like the family never fully accepted him and one of the final straws was Kim not extending an invitation to now wife, Kaitlynn Carter, to her wedding to Kanye West.”
The conflict between Brody and Kim Kardashian occurred in 2014, when Brody, an apparent serial dater, was not allowed to bring a plus-one to Kim’s wedding. Subsequently--and, according to The Hills co-star Spencer Pratt, at Kaitlynn’s insistence--Brody did not attend the wedding.
Kim herself, however, has deflected the suggestion that it caused a rift between them, saying in a 2015 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians that “Everyone else respected [the no-plus-one rule] – it’s not a big deal. We love our stepbrothers. It just seems like they are always talking about this divide.”
The source close to Brody also said that Kris Jenner was a major factor in Brody’s rift with the family, saying that “He’d love to have a relationship with his younger sisters deep down, but it’s really hard when he feels the way he does about their mom and dad. It’s really said.” This comes after Brody came under fire for making unflattering comments about Caitlyn Jenner and the effect of her gender transition upon him.
As for us, we’re not sure who was the originator of the split between Brody and the rest of the family--but something tells us that there was more to it than just his side.
