Kris Jenner is jealous of Caitlyn Jenner‘s instant fame and alluring beauty, as her worst fears have come true.
“Caitlyn’s instant rise to fame and support has everyone now focused solely on her and not on the Kardashians anymore,” a source told Radar. “This was Kris’ biggest fear.”
The insider added: “Already Caitlyn is more beautiful than Kris and more beloved by fans, and this has Kris spinning out in her head. No one in the family was expecting Caitlyn to be as beautiful as she is. Everyone is shocked at how soft and natural she looks and, of course, Kris is just through the roof.”
Kris, who was used to calling all the shots in her 23-year marriage to the former Bruce Jenner, is terrified Caitlyn’s rising star status will eclipse that of her celebrity spawn Kim Kardashian and outshine the entire Kardashian brand.
“Kris knows that she is no longer the ‘momager with the most’ and this drives her absolutely nuts!” said the insider.
Meanwhile, Kris’ younger sister, Karen Houghton, conceded it “must be hard” for Kris to deal with Caitlyn’s skyrocketing popularity.
Caitlyn set the world record for the fastest time to reach 1 million followers on Twitter. Jenner, who joined Twitter on June 1, reached 1 million followers in just 4 hours and 3 minutes.
“I don’t know how Kris is doing. Poor thing,” said Houghton. “I hope Kris is okay because it must be hard.”
As TheImproper previously reported, Caitlyn said Kris used her as a meal ticket and then emasculated her once she started making her own money as executive producer of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
Caitlyn, 65, said Kris, 59, “mistreated” and “controlled” her throughout their marriage. Anyone who has ever watched “KUWTK” has seen Kris callously disrespect the former Bruce in front of all their children and before the cameras.
“The first 15 years I felt she needed me more because I was the breadwinner,” said Caitlyn. “Then when [Keeping Up With the Kardashians] hit and she was running the whole show and getting credit for it and she had her own money, she didn’t need me as much from that standpoint. I think in a lot of ways she became less tolerant of me.”
Caitlyn has become one of the most famous people in the world since coming out as a transgender woman on the cover of Vanity Fair last week. Jenner is now fielding lucrative TV offers, and will likely make more money than Kris in due time.
It’s also likely Caitlyn will soon no longer appear much on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” since she has her own eight-part reality TV docuseries, “I Am Cait,” premiering July 26. Caitlyn also plans to film other TV shows focused on transgender and LGBT issues.
