When Bruce Jenner transitioned, it was made clear by the Olympian that she will now go by the name Caitlyn Jenner. And while most people, including Apple’s intelligent personal assistant Siri, make an effort to call the 65-year-old by her new name, the Kardashian clan doesn’t always refer to Jenner by her new identification.
Khloe Kardashian might be supportive of her step-father’s change, but that doesn’t mean she has to call the 65-year-old, Caitlyn, formerly known as Bruce. “We don’t like to say that Bruce is gone, per se. We, my sisters and I, we will call Caitlyn ‘Bruce,’ and we’ve been told that’s completely fine,” Kardashian said during her appearance on The Project on Thursday.
The 31-year-old added, “Because on the phone, when she calls me, it’s the same voice as Bruce. And if I’m not physically with her, it’s hard to remember in the moment that I’m talking to Caitlyn, if that makes sense.”
Jenner has been chronicling her new life as a transgender woman on her docu-seris, I Am Cait, which airs on Sunday nights on E!
