When Bruce Jenner came out as a trans-woman back in 2015, it surely shocked the world. No one could imagine that a man who won Olympic Gold, has been married thrice and fathered six children was now identifying himself as a woman.

However, the person apart from Bruce Jenner (now Caitlyn) that was impacted the most was his recently divorced wife, Kris Jenner. After being married for 23-long years, Bruce becoming Caitlyn truly did some damage to Kris Jenner.

Fast forward to today, and it seems like Kris has further been hurt by Caitlyn because in her memoir, Caitlyn mentioned some awful things about her life. One of those things were that Kris used to completely control her finances while they were married. Since reading the memoir, Kris has been completely shattered, and this is when India’s Prince Manvendra Singh Gohil enters the story.

For those who don’t know, Manvendra Singh Gohil is the son and heir of the Maharaja of Rajpipla, Gujarat and also the first openly gay prince in the world.


On a recent trip to India, Kendall Jenner had the pleasure of meeting the Prince while she was shooting for the cover of the Indian Vogue with Sushant Singh Rajput. Upon hearing the Prince’s story, of how he was married for 16 months and then divorced his wife, waited until she remarried and then came out of the closet publicly, Kendall invited the Prince over for lunch whenever he would be visiting the US.

What’s really similar between my dad and Prince Manvendra is the bravery and being able to take that chance to come out and hope that everything goes alright

As the Prince descended upon the Kardashians, the girls couldn’t wait for the man to meet their mother so she could see the other side of a similar story. A man who divorced his wife and then came out with a different sexual orientation. After visiting Kris at her house, the Prince restored Kris’ faith and wished for great happiness for her by saying:

Kris responded to Gohil with a, “thank you,” and well, let’s hope she does really get over it.
