Brody Jenner accuses Bruce Jenner for being an absentee father in Keeping Up With The Kardashians
A newly released preview from Keeping Up With The Kardashians shows Brody Jenner accusing Bruce Jenner for being an absentee father.
“I think Bruce is an incredible human being and I think that Bruce is a great father, he just wasn’t a great father to me,” Brody Jenner says in a promotional video for the episode.
Bruce Jenner and Brody’s mother Linda Thompson had a “messy divorce” and as a result the 29-year-old has a distant relationship with his father.
Brody Jenner said he was raised with stepfather David Foster and Bruce Jenner often skipped birthdays growing up.
“I resent him for that,” Brody Jenner said.
Former Olympics champion Bruce Jenner also is a father to adults Burt, Casey and Brandon and teenage girls Kendall and Kylie.
He’s also, of course, stepfather to Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob Kardashian and married to their momager Kris.
“The way I see Bruce with Kendall and Kylie and Brandon, I’m actually so happy for them,” Brody Jenner said in the video after spending a day on the beach with his father and siblings.
After seeing Bruce Jenner playfully put Kylie on his shoulder and engage in easy conversation with Brandon, Brody confronted his father.
“It’s interesting to watch how you are with the girls,” Brody Jenner told his father.
“Because it’s like, something I’m not really used to.
“You weren’t around since I was a kid and it’s like …,” Brody Jenner said before he was cut off by his father.
“Now’s not the time to talk about it,” Bruce Jenner said.
Brody Jenner created, produced and starred in The Princes of Malibu reality show alongside his brother Brandon.
He dated The Hills stars Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari and was heavily featured on the show.
Brody Jenner previously was romantically linked to Nicole Ritchie and Lindsay Lohan and formerly dated Canadian singer Avril Lavigne.
Keeping Up With The Kardashians will air on Sunday night on the E! network.
