Khloe Kardashian is said to be ‘completely blindsided’ by Caitlyn Jenner’s claims they haven’t spoken in five to six years.
The reality star, 35, is reportedly ‘genuinely confused’ by the 70-year-old’s bombshell admission on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! that they have been consistently on rocky terms since Caitlyn came out as transgender in 2015.
Source have told TMZ that the mother of one-year-old True has refuted Caitlyn’s claims – revealing that she has been nothing but supportive of the former Olympian’s transition, with things only turning sour following Caitlyn’s explosive claims over her mother Kris Jenner in her memoir.

‘She’s confused’: Khloe Kardashian, 35, is said to be ‘completely blindsided’ by Caitlyn Jenner’s claims they haven’t spoken in five to six years
Khloe is said to have been caught off-guard by Caitlyn’s admission on the series, which is set in Australia.
According to the publication, Khloe has said that the I Am Cait star’s timeline doesn’t add up.
Caitlyn came out as transgender in 2015, and was filmed having a conversation with Khloe about it shortly after on Keeping Up With The Kardashians – which doesn’t add up to her claims about them going up to six years without talking.
Another cause of Khloe’s bewilderment allegedly stems from her constant presence at family parties and birthdays involving Caitlyn, as well as her support towards the Vanity Fair covergirl when she collected her ESPY Award in 2016.
However, cementing that she ‘loves Caitlyn’, Khloe has expressed that there is ‘no bad blood from her side’ and is ‘confused by her accusation there’s tension.’

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Khloe Kardashian and Caitlyn Jenner for further comment.
Caitlyn, who has endured a famously strained relationship with Khloe following the release of 2017 memoir, expressed that out of all of her children, coming out as Transgender to Khloe was the most difficult because she was ‘pi**ed off about something.’
However, viewers rushed to Khloe’s defence after Caitlyn defiantly said she ‘didn’t know what her issues are’ – as they expressed Khloe only had a problem with her because of the way she portrayed her mother Kris Jenner in the shock tell-all.

The conversation began when Roman Kemp asked Caitlyn if she came out to certain people first.
She explained: ‘The first was the kids, I started with Brandon my son and he said to me “Dad, I’ve always been so proud to be your son but I’ve never been more proud of you than right now.’
Caitlyn continued: ‘I went through every kid and Khloe for some reason was pi**ed off about something through this whole process, it’s been five or six years and I’ve really haven’t talked to her since.’
Ian suggested to Cait: ‘Do you think she’s more thinking about herself rather than you?’
At a loss for an explanation, Caitlyn expressed: ‘I don’t know, we were really close, I raised her since she was five years old, I really don’t know what her issues are.’

Horrified viewers couldn’t resist turning to social media to slam Caitlyn for her comment about Khloe with the following tweets:
‘The reason khloe doesn’t talk to Caitlyn isn’t bcus she’s trans. It’s bcus caitlyn completely disregarded the Kardashians after her change, and then chat so much sh** about Kris#ImACeleb.’
‘I love Caitlyn in the jungle, but the way she explained her and Khloe’s fallout was so wrong, it made it seem that Khloe won’t speak to her because she’s trans, when in fact it was about how Caitlyn treated Kris after.#ImACeleb.’
‘Team @khloekardashian all of the way.’
‘That was so wrong how Caitlin lied about why @khloekardashian stopped speaking to her..It wasn’t because of the transition, it was how Caitlin treated her mum after it, spoke cr** about all of them and her father who isn’t here to defend himself and made up lies for publicity.’
‘I love Caitlyn but it’s so unfair of her to sit there and make out like Khloe hasn’t spoken to her because she had a problem with her transitioning when really it’s because of the way she treated and spoke about Kris #ImACeleb.’
Caitlyn expressed: ‘I don’t know, we were really close, I raised her since she was five years old, I really don’t know what her issues are’
‘She disregarded the Kardashians!’ Horrified viewers couldn’t resist turning to social media to slam Caitlyn for her comment about Khloe
‘Caitlyn has NOT told the full truth here, there is deeper issues with Khloe. Not because she turnt trans. She knows exactly why it’s the not the same with @khloekardashian anymore. #imaceleb.’
‘Khloe stopped talking to Caitlyn cause she spoke sh** about her mum like who wouldn’t.’
‘Caitlyn telling pure lies there, it was right on the tv when khloe supported her when she won woman of the year, caitlyn forgot to mention how she has continuously said terrible things about her ex wife and step kids which could possibly be the reason they don’t speak.’
However, others saw things from Caitlyn’s point of view, as they rallied around her:
‘Everybody shut the f*** up! Caitlyn didn’t say sh** bad about Khloe!! Stop sh** stirring!!!! And when Ian started to say she was selfish, CJ actually defended @khloe Kardashian so shh!! She hasn’t said one bad word about the Kardashian/Jenners whatsoever and has been classy!’
‘Honestly am dumbfounded at just how much I like Caitlyn….best camp mate by far, genuinely lovely woman….f*** you Khloe #ImACeleb.’
Oh no! Khloe and Caitlyn’s relationship have been strained since the publication of the latter’s memoir, which included an unflattering depiction of momager Kris
‘She hasn’t said one bad thing about the Kardashians!’ Others saw things from Caitlyn’s point of view, as they rallied around her
‘It actually breaks my heart that Khloe hasn’t spoken to Caitlyn since she came out as trans. Would break your heart raising someone from they were five for them to stop talking to you for being who you are#ImACeleb.’
Khloe and Caitlyn’s relationship have been strained since the publication of the latter’s memoir, which included an unflattering depiction of Kris.
When the rift initially occurred, all three Kardashian sisters closed ranks around Kris against Caitlyn, but Kim and Kourtney appear to have put the matter aside.
Meanwhile, Caitlyn also candidly discussed the lives of her daughters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, for the first time on Thursday’s instalment of I’m A Celebrity.
Referencing Kendall’s 119million and Kylie’s 152million Instagram followers, which has catapulted their success in the modelling and entrepreneurship fields, the reality star, 70, admitted she ‘didn’t know what her girls would do without social media.’
With her camp-mates hanging onto her every word about the famous clan, Caitlyn also made the bombshell admission that her youngest Kylie, 22, drops between ‘$300-$400,000 a month on security’ in a bid to feel safe.

The conversation began when Caitlyn innocently asked her company: ‘Do you think the Queen watches this show?’
Cutting to the Bush Telegraph, the former Olympian enthused: ‘What if the Queen watches? Because in some way I am part of the royal family of entertainment and if one royal family meets another royal family… you know.’
Back at camp, Roman asked Caitlyn how she would feel if Kendall, 24, said she was going to marry Prince Harry, who is married to Meghan Markle.
Caitlyn explained it would be tough for the model, claiming: ‘She would have to give up everything to do that.
‘They don’t even allow them to get on social media, well they do now but they didn’t and my kids wouldn’t know what to do if they didn’t have social media.’

With Kylie being the seventh most followed person on Instagram, and Kendall being the 14th, in the Bush Telegraph Ian admitted: ‘You have to take your hat off to her girls because they have rinsed it in how well they have used social media and taken it to levels that are out there.’
Referencing the unimaginable heights of Kendall and Kylie’s fame, Cliff asked Caitlyn whether they needed security everywhere they do.
‘Everywhere!’ Caitlyn quipped back, adding: ‘I bet you Kylie will spend anywhere between $300-$400,000 dollars a month on security, everywhere she goes. It’s a big operation.’
Roman asked: ‘How does that make you feel that your daughters have to go through that just to go to the shops?’ – to which Caitlyn answered: ‘It’s sad but they have been doing it forever, they like having the security guys there.’
Clearly astonished by the admission, the Capital FM radio host said in the Bush Telegraph: ‘350k! What are they spending it on, you better have invincible armour, The Terminator as your constant pal who can also make you food – what are they doing?!’

Talk of the Kardashians never got boring, with Roman asking whose idea it was to do their hugely popular hit shot, KUWTK, which began in 2007 and is still going strong today.
Caitlyn explained: ‘Kris and I were sitting in bed and The Osborne’s were on and it was really hot at one point and with Kris all you have to say is go and she’s off.
‘They gave us 6 episodes and one camera and we started shooting and before we were done shooting they ordered 12 more episodes. Well over 500 episodes now.’
Back in the Bush Telegraph, Cliff said: ‘Caitlyn’s had to suppress herself for her whole life and she is at last the person that she should have been when she was born and she is a fantastic ambassador, I feel privileged to meet her, I think she’s wonderful.’
‘They like the security guys there’: Ciatlyn admitted her girls’ need for security was ‘sad’ but they ‘had been doing it forever’
Supported: Meanwhile, Caitlyn’s famous family have been watching her I’m A Celebrity and were left devastated when she broke down in tears at the start of her journey
Ian added: ‘When I look at Caitlyn I always think to myself would I have what it takes if that was all happening inside my body? I don’t think I would.’
Back at camp, Caitlyn stated: ‘I’m still the same person that I was, same sense of humour, same everything.’
Meanwhile, MailOnline can reveal that the clan have been tuning in to watch her from home, and were left devastated when she broke down in tears at the start of her journey.
The Olympian left her family, and her partner Sophia Hutchins, 23, distraught when she broke down and threatened to quit on the first night, and are delighted to see that she’s since turned things around.
A source told MailOnline: ‘When she first went in it was really hard for them to see her upset, just because she is normally the complete opposite, so upbeat and positive.
‘Caitlyn is being completely herself in the jungle and that is why the public are loving her. She is extremely kind and generous so it’s no surprise that she isn’t involved with any of the arguments in the jungle!’
Revealing why the reality star chose to appear on I’m A Celebrity, they continued: ‘Caitlyn wanted to represent who she is and the journey she has been on.
‘Whilst of course she adores her family and will reference them in the jungle occasionally, she is there as herself so that the British public can see who Caitlyn really is and not the person in the TV shows and magazines.’

After two weeks of silence the supermodel threw her support behind her father as she shared an image of Caitlyn with campmates Nadine Coyle and Jacqueline Jossa, she wrote: ‘Always rooting for you! Strongest person in the world.’
Referencing circulating claims of an ongoing family silence regarding her participation on the show, Kendall added: ‘Just cuz I’m not posting doesn’t mean I’m not supporting. I love my dad! Everyone chill.’
