Kris Jenner finally breaks her silence on ex Caitlyn's Vanity Fair cover

Kris Jenner has finally opened up about her ex Caitlyn Jenner's Vanity Fair cover.
The Kardashian matriarch (59) was married to Jenner, when she was known as Bruce, for 22 years and the couple split in 2013. They have two daughters Kendall (19) and Kylie (17).
Caitlyn introduced herself to the world on the June cover of the glossy magazine in one of the most memorable pop culture publishing moments in modern history.
Caitlyn's children and step-children nearly immediately took to social media to congratulate her on the coup, but Kris has remained largely silent.
But she broke her silence yesterday at the MailOnline's Seriously Popular yacht party at Cannes Lions, saying: "I think it's amazing. I think that someone following their dream is truly inspirational to a lot of people…. you have to do what makes you happy."
It comes after the Olympic gold medallist said she "mistreated" her during their union, in particular, after the family became household names.
During her Vanity Fair interview, the former Olympic athlete recalled some of the darker sides of their marriage, which was documented on reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
"The first 15 years I felt she needed me more because I was the breadwinner," she said.
"Then really around the show, when that hit and she was running the whole show and getting credit for it and she had her own money, she didn't need me as much from that standpoint... I think in a lot of ways she became less tolerant of me.
"A lot of times she wasn't very nice. People would see how I got mistreated. She controlled the money, all that kind of stuff."
