From Blind Gossip:
This celebrity family is going through some troubles, with lots of rumors floating around about who is doing what, and who is siding with whom.
Well, here is the real story.
This argument isn’t about money or fame. It’s about the child/ren.
The father recognized from the beginning that he doesn’t have much control over the child/ren from his wife’s previous marriage, so he adopted a fairly laissez-faire policy when it came to their upbringing. He was supportive, but not overly controlling or a strict disciplinarian.
He really wants his kids to be happy. Well, the younger child/ren told him that they would be happiest if they could do what the older child/ren was doing. No surprise there. Given that their older sibling/s was receiving money, gifts, fame and parental attention for their behavior, why would they yearn for anything else? So, the father let them do it.
The father now realizes that he made a mistake. He is not dumb or passive. He knows that he screwed up. But he also recognizes the pitfalls of fame that lie before him. He knows that swift, public action – talking about the issues, speaking negatively about his wife, making public statements about how unhappy he is about the situation, or suddenly pulling the younger child/ren out of their activities – will only exacerbate the problem. The wife is ruthless when it comes to getting what she wants, and he has no doubt that she will launch a PR war against him if he makes a false move.
So he is trying to deal with all of this very quietly and behind closed doors. He has attorneys, and they are keeping up a steady but careful campaign for him to get more control over the situation. Just know that he is a lot smarter and more disciplined than anyone is giving him credit for being.
He wants a different upbringing for the younger child/ren, and he is determined to get it. Will he only get that by breaking up the family and divorcing his wife? Yes. And he wants that done soon so that he can influence the child/ren before they are of legal age to decide for themselves/selves.
I think it’s fairly obvious that this blind item is about poor Bruce Jenner, don’t you? Everything fits well enough that I don’t even feel like I have to walk us through it. It’s just sad because honestly, I don’t think there’s much hope for Kendall and Kylie Jenner, the younger children in question, at this point. They’re 15 and 17 years old, and they’ve been on Keeping Up with the Kardashians since they were 10 and 12, so there’s really no way for them to have a different upbringing. They were brought up doing sketchy modeling jobs and making ridiculous amounts of money for “designing” nail polish. I think things are pretty much set by now.
Poor, poor Bruce.
