Her coming out an announcement as a transgender woman brought their bank accounts back to life. See the details below!
Caitlyn Marie Jenner, born William Bruce Jenner, is an American retired Olympic gold athlete and television star, from New York. She initially gained recognition when she won the Olympics decathlon in Montreal, 1976.
After the career as a famous Olympic star, she changed her career into television, film, and writing. Currently, she is known for her coming out an announcement as a transgender woman.
A whole generation will know her from reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which made global stars out of the Kardashian family. But Caitlyn had achieved huge success 30 years earlier when, as Bruce Jenner, she fought her way to gold in the decathlon at the 1976 Montreal Olympics.
With just $154 in the bank, the situation was desperate and she decided to abandon her transition amid worries about her four young children.
Then in 1990, she met Kris Kardashian, a young Beverly Hills housewife with impeccable taste and a love of shopping. Kris was then divorcing top lawyer Robert Kardashian.
They had two children, Kendall and Kylie, whom they raised alongside the four children from Kris’s previous relationship, Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Robert, the future stars of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Of course, it was Keeping Up With the Kardashians that propelled them to the big time and according to reports, by the time Kris and Caitlyn split in 2013 they had $46 million to share equally.
Kris kept their Hidden Hills estate, Caitlyn got the $174,000 Sherwood Country Club membership that Kris bought her two decades earlier.
And since her transition she made yet more money thanks to her reality series I Am Cait, autobiography The Secrets of My Life and ad deals with MAC and H&M Sport, putting her net worth at $77million.
Despite her differences with Kris, she admits she will always be grateful to her ex for changing her life.
Currently she is mostly known for being the most famous openly transgender woman in the world. She is a role model for the LGBT-community.
