Why did NONE of Caitlyn’s family attend her re-naming ceremony?


Rumour has been abound for weeks that relations between Caitlyn Jenner and her children, step-children and ex-wife Kris are becoming increasingly strained. 

And certainly eyebrows have now been raised yet again – because none of Cait's family turned up to her renaming ceremony.

The milestone event, segments of which were shown in the US last night during E!'s I Am Cait finale, was attended by the former Olympian's gaggle of transgender friends, as well as pop-star Boy George.

During the episode, she can be seen telling the close-knit congregation: "I feel at home and I have a family," although significantly none of her blood relations could make it.

Kendall, 19, and Kylie Jenner, 18, as well as Brody Jenner, a 32-year-old son from Caitlyn's second marriage were all noticeably absent. And none of her stepchildren – Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob – attended either. 

Despite the absence of the Kardashian-Jenner crew, there were still several high-profile names there to support her – as well as Boy George, Caitlyn's rumoured love interest, Candis Cayne, was also a guest.

Boy George recently brought Ms Jenner on stage during a performance, and he was happy to lend his vocal talents to renaming ceremony, which furthermore consisted of poems, readings and music from a gospel choir. 

Minister Allyson Dylan Robinson opened the service by discussing the power of names before the reality star revealed she wanted to be known as Caitlyn Marie Jenner.

Afterwards the 65-year-old told the gathering: "It has been an amazing journey, and I'm seeing all of it come true. I'm in a great place in life and, for the first time, I feel like I fit in some place.

"Being my authentic self. Thank you."
