Kylie Jenner opens up about relationship with Caitlyn, talks bullying

Kylie Jenner says she likes Caitlyn Jenner "better than Bruce."

The 18-year-old "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star sat down with Ellen DeGeneres, where she opened up about her relationship with Caitlyn Jenner, and how she's processed Caitlyn's transition.

"It was the only thing I really bottled in. I don’t bottle in a lot of things and I feel like my family was a little upset about that, but I got through it and now I almost I like it a lot better honestly," Kylie shared.

"We talk about makeup and clothes we bond a lot more," Kylie explained, adding that she also appreciates that there is no longer "a huge secret" being hidden from her family. "I’ve honestly known about it for a really long time and we actually caught him then dressing up as a girl, when my sister and I were like six and seven maybe. So we’ve known for a while that there was something, but it was never talked about."

"She’s really living her authentic true self," Kylie added. "She's the same exact person she just looks different I guess."

The young reality star also said that she wants to lead by example, and that she hopes to be a role model for her peers.

"I want to be someone from my generation [who is] an example, because I think that’s so awesome and I think that other girls and boys my age will maybe see that I’m so accepting and be accepting of other people too," Kylie said.

Kylie recently began an online anti-bullying campaign called I Am More Than, where she hopes to use her platform and her position as a celebrity to "hopefully inspire my followers" to be open about the experiences with getting bullied and share a message of hope and peace.
