You may or may not have heard, but Caitlyn Jenner has recently, and quite bizarrely, joined a load of British celebrities on the U.K. version of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here. Caitlyn has had a rollercoaster journey in the jungle so far, but has certainly done us proud by competing heroicly in the horrific, insect-ridden tasks that come as part of the show.
The rest of the Kardashian/Jenner clan have remained uncharacteristically silent about Caitlyn’s presence in the jungle, but her partner, twenty-three-year-old Sophia Hutchins, has recently opened up about Caitlyn’s time in the jungle. However, most importantly, she finally addressed the relationship claims that the pair seem to constantly have thrown at them.
So what’s the status of their so-called “partnership”? Keep scrolling to find out.
We all know about the famous Caitlyn Jenner transformation.
Remember? When the gold-medal-winning Olympian and partner to Kris Jenner, announced the start of her transition into a woman back in 2015?
It was a huge part of the bizarre public spectacle that is the Keeping up with the Kardashian’s.
She came into Kris’ life after the death of her first partner, Robert Kardashian.
She had 2 children with Kris (Kendall, and Kylie) and was hastily blended as a significant role model for all of the Kardashians.
And, in true Kardashian-Jenner fashion, she came out on the cover of Vanity Fair.
People marveled at the impressive transformation. She underwent her final operation – the irreversible gender-reassignment surgery – in 2017, officially marking the birth of Caitlyn.
In her debut Vanity Fair interview as Caitlyn, she explained how liberating it felt to finally be open as a woman: “I have nothing left to hide. I am kind of a free person, a free soul. Up to this point, I would wear, you know, Bruce would wear sweatshirts with hoods on them so paparazzi can’t get pictures and all that kind of crap.”
When asked about sending a full airplane out just to pick up her Mom, Caitlyn explained: “I know. What I told her: “Isn’t Caitlyn a much better friend?” Bruce, he would never send a plane. No, no, no, what a jerk the guy was, O.K., Caitlyn is like, “Send the plane. Mom, we’re sending a plane, we’re going to go pick you up and bring you down here.”… It seems like she has a lot more friends than he ever had.”
The shocking transition understandably took its toll on her daughters, Kendall and Kylie.
“My dad says it herself sometimes, it’s kind of like mourning the loss of someone, because it is,” Kendall said in a candid interview about Caitlyn’s transition. “My dad is my dad, but he’s not there physically anymore. But she lets me call her dad — that’s the last little piece of dad I’ve got.”
“It’s an adjustment. It’s something you have to get used to. But I’ve known since I was a kid,” Kendall revealed in the same interview. “He never confirmed it to me, but I’ve known for a very long time. It’s the same person.”
Even though they have been through some pretty rough patches, the family seems to have worked things out. Well, most of them… But that’s a whole other story.
And of course, there’s her much-speculated “partnership” with Sophia Hutchins, whom she shares a lavish Malibu home with – keep scrolling to see what Sophia has to say about the rumors.
The former Olympian has ventured out into the industry on her own. Though she has the support of her family, she is now looking into making up for lost time for Caitlyn.
Yes, you read that right. Caitlyn Jenner is hanging up the glitz and the glamour to go and get down and dirty with a bunch of British B-List celebs.
Back in 2003, she went into the jungle, ready to tackle whatever creepy crawlies may be lurking around amongst the bushes. And now she is ready to give it a go again!
Within the first twenty-four hours, there have already been tears. While everyone was fast asleep, Caitlyn decided to sneak away into the Bush Telegraph to have a little cry.
She wondered if she was spending her time wisely saying: “I’m seventy years old now and is being in here the right way to use my time. Should I be home with my kids, playing with the grandchildren? I’ve never quit at anything I’ve ever done and I’m thinking maybe it’s time I learned how to do that!”
When she woke up in the morning, rugby player James Haskell lightheartedly asked Caitlyn: “Did you wake up this morning and think “OMG, it’s real, I’m actually in the jungle with all these idiots?”‘
“No actually, I woke up in the middle of the night. I had a tough night.”
Later on, Andrew Maxwell commented that Caitlyn had “been quiet all morning.”
Nothing was going to keep her down for long. She hyped herself up with: “The day has started, I have the hat on, let’s get it on!”
That’s the spirit!
And it’s the fact that the Kardashian/Jenners have so far stayed so quiet.
Now, this family isn’t usually the type to stay quiet on their family affairs, so many fans have been speculating as to what could be going on behind closed doors.
And it isn’t a Kardashian or a Jenner… But it is someone incredibly close to Caitlyn. In fact, so close that the pair have been plagued with relationship rumors for over 4 years.
Twenty-three-year-old Hutchins, who lives in Malibu with Caitlyn, spoke to the British breakfast show host, Lorraine Kelly, about what it has been like to watch her partner in the jungle.
“It hasn’t been easy to watch at all when there is someone who is across the globe you kind of feel helpless, to begin with.” She told Lorraine Kelly on Friday.
But she also revealed some pretty shocking things about the pair’s relationship status…
“When you throw in these challenges and she is crying, it has been gut-wrenching to watch. The producers take away everyone’s phones so we don’t have any way to contact her. It’s tough.”
She then admitted that watching her cry left her feeling “ready to get on a plane.”
The pair live together and clearly share a tight-knit bond – leading many to question whether or not they are in a romantic relationship.
During an appearance on Good Morning Britain, host, Piers Morgan, launched right in, by asking how she would categorize their relationship.
“Is that the opening question?” she replied.
“I think I’ve described it pretty well. At the end of the day, Caitlyn and I are family.”
“We’re great together in business and we have a great partnership, on the personal side as family, and on the business side, me managing her career and us supporting each other in whatever business ventures we’re involved in together.”
So there you have it.
Though we’re not sure her response will satisfy fans enough to totally put the rumors to rest.
