Vanity Fair unveiled its cover featuring Caitlyn Jenner on Monday, revealing her new look and name for the first time. But a discrepancy remains over exactly what Kris Jenner knew about her ex’s transition.

Kris’s marriage to Jenner ended earlier this year, after what Kris says felt like “the most passive-aggressive thing I think I’ve ever experienced,” People reports.

She asks rhetorically, “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?”

However, Kris, 59, does concede she wasn’t completely in the dark.

“When I met Bruce, he told me that he had done hormones back in the early ’80s,” she says. “This was a conversation that took place in the early ’90s. So, what he was telling me happened a decade earlier, and he never really explained it.”

For her part, Caitlyn told Vanity Fair that Kris actually knew everything about the treatments and their side effects. Still, Kris has previously expressed her support her former spouse, and Caitlyn has received an outpouring of love from her family, fans and fellow transgender woman Laverne Cox.
