Ever since Bruce Jenner confirmed in a tell-all interview with Diane Sawyer on Friday that he was transgender, he has been surrounded by messages of support from fans, celeb friends, and his massive family.
However, it now appears that all is not well behind close doors and the 65 year old is struggling to keep the peace between his own family and the Kardashian step-family.
Rather you than us, Bruce, rather you than us.
An insider for Us weekly claim: “It’s still Camp Jenner and Camp Kardashian in a major way. There is a clear line in the sand.”
Team Kardashian consists of Bruce’s ex-wife, Kris, as well as step-children Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, and Rob Kardashian and, controversially, Bruce’s children Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
Meanwhile, Team Jenner includes Bruce’s children from his marriages to Chrystie Scott and Linda Thompson, 36-year-old Burt, 34-year-old Casey, 33-year-old Brandon, and 31-year-old Brody.
In fact, it is reported that the tension between the two camps is so bad that Bruce scheduled two separate viewing sessions for his big interview because they wouldn’t be able to get along all in one room.
Once the show aired, all of the Kardashians – including recluse Rob – took to social media to sing their praises for “heroic” Bruce, but Burt appeared to take issue with their comments as he took to his own Twitter page to rant: “Having a hard time not putting a few people on blast who were not supporters beforehand, but want to act like they were all along.”
The tweet has now been deleted.
The divide between the two isn’t anything new, with it all kicking off last year when Brody was refused a plus one to Kim’s exclusive Wedding to Kanye West in Italy, despite the fact that Kim had even been on holiday with his wife.
Basically, this is some long-term bad blood and we highly doubt that it will all blow over any time soon…. But we do hope that they manage to put on a united front for Bruce’s sake.
