Kim Kardashian wades in on the drama.

The reality TV star has taken to social media to respond to queries about why Caitlyn Jenner didn’t have any family waiting for her after her elimination from I’m A Celebrity.

Kim’s response comes after Brandon Jenner suggested that the whole exit was fabricated to garner sympathy for Caitlyn.


Caitlyn’s son said:

“Honestly, nobody reached out to set it up! I think it might have been a ‘storyline’ the producers wanted to fabricate in order to get more empathy for Caitlyn. That’s how that kind of TV works”.

A screenshot obtained by Mirror Online shows an Instagram DM where a fan reached out to ask Brandon why none of the family were in Australia to greet Caitlyn after her exit.

Sounds a bit cynical to be fair but now Kim Kardashian has echoed Brandon’s words and taken to Twitter to back him up.

“Exactly what Brandon said!!!! NO ONE from I’m A Celeb even reached out and asked for letters, appearances or anything from any Kardashians or Jenners”.


Caitlyn left the jungle in Friday night’s episode alongside Nadine Coyle, in a surprise double elimination.

Her walk across the bridge at the end of the segment left viewers in tears because unlike the campmates who had already left, nobody was waiting at the end of the bride to greet Caitlyn.


Unsurprisingly, the 70-year-old’s huge fanbase had an emotional reaction and took to Twitter asking why her family weren’t there to congratulate her.

It was later reported that fellow campmate James Haskell asked if he could be there instead and so, he reportedly met Caitlyn after she arrived back at the studio.
