In Kardashian Dynasty, a controversial new book about "America's Royal Family," author Ian Halperin accuses Kris Jenner of trying to "cure" Caitlyn Jenner (then Bruce) of her transgender identification while they were married.
"Kris believed the only way to 'bring Bruce right' was through the church," Halperin wrote.
"She told him to 'pray' for guidance and he would be helped," he continued.
"This sounds suspiciously like conversion therapy, the discredited method used by some religious believers to suppress homosexuality."
Most folks understand this practice is bogus, as transgenderism is inherent rather than a disorder that can simply be reversed at will.
At the time, however, Kris reportedly believed it could work.
"She orchestrated a concerted campaign to keep Jenner as a man," wrote Halperin. "Otherwise, they believe Jenner would have made the 'transition' long ago."
The author also asserts that Kris feared Caitlyn's transition would damage the family brand, and the she took steps to thwart her spouse from seeking out gender reassignment.
But accusations of the momager going to such extreme lengths to prevent it may damage her reputation more than ever before.
