Kris Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner tell different versions of what went down during the Bruce Jenner transition. Kris says Caitlyn didn't explain what was happening until their divorce was final. Caitlyn claims Kris Jenner mistreated her--when she was a he.

Which one of them do you believe?

The L.A. Times reports that when most of the Jenner and Kardashian family members took to social media to support Bruce Jenner as he transitioned to Caitlyn Jenner--and lauded her wholeheartedly when she first appeared on the July cover of Vanity Fair--that Kris Jenner has remained mum. The article about the transition has Kris Jenner speaking out about not knowing what was going on.

Caitlyn "just decided, 'I'm done,'" Kris Jenner told Vanity Fair, saying that Caitlyn didn't explain her gender dysphoria until after their divorce was finalized.

"Why would you want to be married and have kids if this is what you wanted since you were a little boy? Why would you not explain this all to me?" she asked rhetorically.

Kris added that the split felt like "the most passive-aggressive thing" she thinks she ever experienced.

Kris Jenner refuses to address Caitlyn Jenner using her name or the pronoun 'she.' She still refers to her ex-husband as Bruce Jenner. She says Bruce became "angry and upset" with her toward the end of their marriage because of the work involved in the family's reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

"He was married to me and he wasn't who he wanted to be so he was miserable," she said, adding that she never thought of their troubles as the result of a "gender issue."

Caitlyn Jenner said things got bad when Kris Jenner started viewing then-Bruce Jenner as the lesser bread winner. She adds that Kris Jenner didn't treat her--then him--kindly.

"I'd get upset, and the whole relationship kind of fizzled," Caitlyn said, adding that "20% was gender and 80% was the way I was treated" for why their marriage crumbled.

Who do you think is telling the truth here? Is Kris Jenner simply upset because her husband became a woman? Some believe Kris is jealous of Caitlyn Jenner and embarrassed by what happened.

Caitlyn Jenner has bared her soul. It doesn't seem like she'd lie about when went wrong in her former marriage to Kris Jenner.
