Chrystie Crownover is Bruce Jenner’s first wife with whom he had two children, son Burt and daughter Cassandra.
Bruce Jenner and Chrystie Crownover were married from 1972 until their divorce in 1981.
Chrystie Scott, who took the surname Crownover after divorcing Bruce Jenner, was happily married to Bruce for eight years between 1971 and 1979.
Chrystie Crownover, now 63, and Bruce Jenner, now 64, had two children together, Burt, now 36, and Cassandra “Casey”, 34. Chrystie Crownover has always stuck up for her ex even though he left her while she was pregnant with Casey for model Linda Thompson, whom he eventually married.
She told People Magazine years later that there was never a custody battle and she has retained her respect for Bruce Jenner, before adding: “Bruce is a good father, and I want him involved with my kids.”
In 1981, Bruce Jenner got married for second time with Linda Thompson, with whom he had two sons, Brandon and Brody. They divorced in 1985.
In 1991, the former Olympian married Kris Kardashian after five months of dating. Bruce Jenner has two daughters with Kris, Kendall and Kylie.
Chrystie Crownover, who is divorced from her second lawyer husband Robert, is still in touch with Bruce Jenner and says that being away from Kris is the best thing that can happen for him and the children.
She said: “I don’t speak to him that often, but it’s better for everyone, especially the kids, that they’re not together and she’s out of his life. Hopefully, they’ll have more of a chance of leading a normal life out of the spotlight.”
“I can’t say anymore, but he’s never been a cross-dresser in all the time I’ve known him,” Chrystie Crownover added.
