The texts between Kanye and Caitlyn are significant as the transgender activist has been on the outs with the Kardashian family ever since her book, Secrets of My Life, was released last year. In the biography, Caitlyn makes some claims against her ex-wife, Kris Jenner, that the family says are just untrue.
At the time, the Kardashians, especially Kim Kardashian West, were very vocal about their disapproval of the book’s contents and seemingly cut ties with Caitlyn. The falling out was a major storyline on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
“It’s a big loss in my life, not having her there anymore,” Caitlyn said of Kim on Good Morning Britain last September, revealing that at the time, she hadn't spoken with her former step-daughter in almost nine months.
While on Live With Kelly and Ryan that same month, Kim hinted that there might be hope in the future for a reconciliation with Caitlyn. “We’re family, so I do believe that this is maybe just a phase,” she said.
The Kardashian-Jenner clan were able to put aside their differences and all attend Kylie Jenner’s 21st birthday party earlier this month. Caitlyn was even featured in one of Kim’s Snapchats as she panned around the room. “Oh you guys, look, the whole gang, the whole family’s here, look," Kim pointed out.
