Kris Jenner's Revelation About Her Marriage To Bruce Jenner

Kris Jenner has opened up about her 23-year marriage to Caitlyn Jenner, admitting she was forced to rebuild the Olympians career in order for their family to survive.

Speaking with transgender rights activist Janet Mock on the Never Before podcast, the mother-of-six revealed how she “fell in love 150 percent” with the athlete despite her dire financial situation.

“When I met and married Bruce Jenner, I became his manager instantly because he didn’t have a lot going on,” she said. 

“I saw this incredible potential, and he wasn’t doing anything. Nobody was booking him for speeches. Nobody was sending him out on the road. I thought, Wow. You should be this incredible public speaker. I just figured it out to that point.”

“I told my assistant, Lisa, ‘OK listen. We have the greatest guy here. He really knows his craft. He is really good at what he does, but he doesn’t have anybody doing anything for him. He doesn’t have a lot going on. He has $200 in the bank. What are we going to do? Because the kids have to eat. We have to get it together.’” 

She continued: “I’ve always looked at things like, ‘We’re just going to figure this out.’ I don’t stop and think about, ‘What’s the plan here? I just went for it.”

The reality TV star recalled how she set to work on press kits to mail “every speakers’ bureau in the United States.”

“Little by little, we started booking these speeches for Visa; Coca-Cola started booking him,” she said.

“I remember sitting with Doug Ivester, the head of Coca-Cola, at the Olympics and thinking, ‘Wow, we’ve really come a long way.”

She’s no longer struggling however, as her family are worth an esimtmated $350 million.
