PopUps: Kylie Jenner Says She Likes Caitlyn 'Better' Than Bruce

Tuesday December 1, 2015

During an interview on the "Ellen DeGeneres Show" Monday, Kylie Jenner confessed she's grown closer to her parent Caitlyn Jenner after she came out as a trans woman earlier this year, adding that she likes Caitlyn "better" than Bruce.

"I don't bottle in a lot of things and I feel like my family was a little upset about that, but I got through it and now I almost I like it a lot better, honestly. I like [Caitlyn] better than Bruce," Kylie Jenner said.

Kylie said she and Caitlyn have bonded over "makeup and clothes." Caitlyn's stepdaughter Kim Kardashian West shared similar sentiments in a September blog post, Vanity Fair points out.

"...after all, [Caitlyn] asks me for style and glam tips all the time. What's more fun than that? LOL," she wrote.

Kylie opened up more to Ellen about Caitlyn's transition.

"I feel like there was always this big secret, and I've honestly known about it for a really long time and we actually caught him then dressing up as a girl, when [Kendall Jenner] and I were like six and seven maybe," she said. "So we've known for a while that there was something, but it was never talked about."

According to Vanity Fair, Kylie said she's proud of Caitlyn for "living her true authentic self" and hopes "that other girls and boys my age will maybe see that I'm so accepting and be accepting of other people, too."

Caitlyn's family, including Kylie, recently celebrated her birthday.
