Bruce Jenner’s mother has called Kris Jenner a “controlling monster”.
The 88-year-old mother of the former Olympic athlete, Esther Jenner has hit out at her daughter-in-law, admitting that she used to “stay away” from Kris whenever she could.
When asked if she felt that the 59-year-old momager was a “controlling monster”, Esther told the Daily Mail newspaper: “That’s accurate. I don’t now why she is. I don’t think she treated anybody very well. She could insult you with a big smile on her face. What do you do with a person like that? You’re going to avoid them if possible. She was backstabbing as far as my grandchildren were concerned and that is something I can’t stand.
“She is domineering – it’s do it her way, or there’s no way. I had very little to do with Kris. I stayed away from her as much as I could.”
Talking about her son’s new found freedom, Esther revealed that Bruce is coping really well since he separated from his wife of 22 years.
She said: “He is ecstatically happy right now.
“When I talk to him, I can hear it in his voice … since he has got his freedom he has his own checkbook and doesn’t have to ask Kris for money which he’s had to do, he couldn’t even buy one of his little helicopters without asking her for money.”
