Model Kendall Jenner opened up this week about her parent’s divorce in a revealing interview with Juju Chang on American television show Nightline. The stunning nineteen-year-old discussed the change in family dynamic, saying: “It sucked. But it’s not- I try not to think of it as the worst thing that could have happened.”
Commenting on media intrusion at the time of the split, the young model is adamant that closing your ears to the constant rumours is the only way to deal with it, saying: “If you just ignore it and go on and you’re like ‘I know what’s real. My family, my friends, they know what’s real. So what else, why does that matter?’”
Kendall’s mom and dad Kris and Bruce Jenner married in 1991 and filed for divorce in September 2014 with Kendall’s mom citing irreconcilable differences. Despite constant reports of rifts within the world famous family Kendall says: “I still am so close with both my mom and my dad.”
Kris recently confirmed this when speaking about her ex-husband, saying: “We have children together, and we have memories and holidays and traditions. I don’t want him to take that away from me and I don’t want to take that away from him.”
When first learning of the split, Kendall broke down telling her older sisters: “We won’t be siblings anymore…for someone to say we’re not going to be sisters anymore, that really really affects me.” But thankfully, Kendall has now said: “Nothing has really changed. Everybody’s happy.”
That’s the main thing, right?
