Bruce Jenner and Kris Jenner officially filed for divorce and called time on their 23 years of marriage just over a month ago, and there is one person who could not be happier about the split: Bruce’s mom, Esther.
During an interview with the Daily Mail, the former Olympian’s mom let her true feelings be known about Kris, and they’re not pretty!
“I have to be truthful. One thing I’m not, I’m not a phony, and I get in a lot of trouble sometimes for saying it like it is,” Esther explained during an interview at her rural Idaho home. When asked by the Daily Mail if Kris is a “controlling monster,” like she is often branded, Esther replied, “That’s accurate. I don’t know why she is. I don’t think she treated anybody very well.”
“She could insult you with a big smile on her face. What do you do with a person like that? You’re going to avoid them if possible. She was backstabbing as far as my grandchildren were concerned, and that is something I can’t stand,” Esther added. “She’s domineering — it’s do it her way, or there’s no way. I had very little to do with Kris. I stayed away from her as much as I could.” Yikes!
Esther is, however, thrilled now that her beloved son Bruce is so happy with his life.
“He is ecstatically happy right now. When I talk to him I can hear it in his voice, and he’s spending a lot more time with his kids,” Esther told the publication. “I don’t think he’s a bit lonely. He seems like he’s himself again.”
“Since he has got his freedom he has his own checkbook and doesn’t have to ask Kris for money, which he’s had to do, he couldn’t even buy one of his little helicopters without asking her for money. He’s not shy about telling you that she controlled the money,” she added.
It’s evident there is no love lost between Esther and Kris, and the full interview is intense and quite in-depth about the measures the Kardashian momager would carry out to control her husband. But when it comes to her son, Esther will love him, no matter what.
When asked about Bruce’s new transformation, Esther revealed, “I love him, no matter what. I’ve brought this up to him on the phone when we’ve talked, and he says, ‘Mom, you can’t believe this stuff.’ And I said, ‘Well, I want to tell you one thing, Bruce… [if] it’s true or false, it’s not going to change my love for you,’ and it’s true, that’s exactly how I feel, but I don’t like it,” she admitted.
“I hate his hair [, too], I tell him it’s ugly. That it’s ridiculous. I told him on the phone the other day, ‘You know Bruce, you just turned 65 and you’re wearing your hair like you’re a teenage rebel,’ and he laughed, just cracked up.”
