Kris Jenner Says She's Confused By Caitlyn Jenner's Interest in Dating Men

Kris Jenner sat down with Ellen DeGeneres, where she opened up about her ex, Caitlyn Jenner, who recently opened up about wanting to date men.

"[It's] confusing, for sure," Kris shared.

"You know I think that I really want her to be happy and be really comfortable in all the things where she says she wasn't her true authentic self for most of her life," Kris, 60, explained.

"I think for me, just getting used to that, you know? I am human and I have my feelings and I try and it's baby steps," she added.

Caitlyn, while still living as Bruce Jenner, tied the knot with Kris in 1991, and the couple divorced in 2015, months before Caitlyn opened up about transitioning.

"You don't want somebody to be miserable or in pain or anything like that," Kris told Ellen. "[But] I said to her when this first happened, 'You are so excited you have to wait for the rest of us to catch up.'"
