Kim Kardashian Describes How She Kept Caitlyn Jenner's Secret for 13 Years
“My mom was out of town with my little sisters, visiting my grandmother in San Diego, and I was living with her and Bruce at the time in Calabasas. I came home from a friend’s house and walked into the garage and Bruce was there, dressed up as a woman. Heels, wig, makeup and all! I don’t remember specifically what he had on because I put my head down and ran into my bedroom,” Kim described in her blog. “Had I not overheard my dad and his friends discussing rumors that Bruce would dress up as a woman years before (when I was about 11 years old), I never would have believed what I was seeing. I thought my dad was jealous of my mom’s new husband, that he was joking with his friends on the phone, but suddenly I knew it was all true.”

“We didn’t even know the term ‘transgender,’ nor did we know what it meant. For over a decade, we assumed he was a cross-dresser, not transgender…“So I kept the secret and didn’t tell anyone other than Kourtney. We did not tell my mom, either. I’m not sure why I didn’t tell my mom. I guess I thought it would break up her marriage, and Kendall and Kylie were so young … I just felt so bad. I literally tuned it out for over a decade and never even really thought about it. When I was 30, Bruce called me and said, ‘Are you ready to talk about it?’ I happily met with him at my home and he explained to me that he always felt he was trapped in the wrong body. I never really thought he would one day transition—that was never discussed. So I never could have foreseen that, in the future, Bruce would transition into Caitlyn.”
