In Touch (USA) - - Cover story -

The depths of Kris Jen­ner’s lust for power, fame and con­trol are be­ing ex­posed in Ian Halperin’s new book, Kar­dashian Dy­nasty. It delves into ev­ery­thing from Kris’ role in the re­lease of Kim’s 2007 sex tape with Ray J and how Kris pres­sured Kim to pose for Play­boy the same year to how Kris ar­ranged Kim and Kanye’s mar­riage (see main story) and tried to use reli­gion to “cure” then-hus­band Bruce Jen­ner of his gen­der-iden­tity is­sues. Re­gard­ing the in­fa­mous sex tape, Halperin writes that Kris de­lib­er­ately “en­gi­neered the deal [with Vivid Video] be­hind the scenes and was re­spon­si­ble for the sex tape see­ing the light of day,” all in an ef­fort to make Kim fa­mous, just like her old friend Paris Hil­ton. Kris also pres­sured a very re­luc­tant Kim into pos­ing nude for Play­boy, urg­ing her to do it to strengthen the fam­ily brand and be­cause it meant a huge pay­day. It gets worse: The book goes on to claim that Kris, who knew Bruce (now Cait­lyn) cross-dressed, used their Chris­tian faith to get him to sup­press his true self. “She told him he should pray, that church would help him heal,” a coach who knew Bruce, 66, told the au­thor. Halperin added that he be­lieves Kris’ tac­tics to “pray away” Cait­lyn’s gen­der iden­tity sounds “sus­pi­ciously like con­ver­sion ther­apy.”
