In all the photos, Brody and Brandon’s other parent, Caitlyn Jenner, was missing.
In April, Brandon revealed in an essay published in the To Me, He Was Just Dad collection that he saw Caitlyn only “ half a dozen times between the ages of eight and 25. ”
Jenner divorced Thompson in 1986 and was married to Kris Kardashian from 1991–2015.
“Unfortunately, the irregular exchanges felt more like staged photo opportunities than real bonding,” Brandon wrote. In fact, they were stage photos for ‘family’ Christmas cards.
After father met and married Kris, the family became a business for him and I stayed away most of my teenage years. I didn’t want to be part of their dynamics. However, I now know that Dad was quite unhappy in that house and felt that he was not being treated well, ”he continued.

Caitlyn later publicly admitted that she was absent from the lives of her older children and attributed part of it to her depression for not knowing her gender identity.
“The great formative years for them, I really struggled with these issues,” she told Diane Sawyer on 20/20 in 2015.
“I talked to all the boys about this that I didn’t do it right. And for that I apologized to my children. ‘
In the same interview, Brandon said the couple had restored their relationship.
“We try not to look back. We’re just looking forward to it, ”he said, later adding that the two were now“ close by ”.
