They don't speak much anymore.

Caitlyn Jenner recently revealed more reasons why she's is fighting with the Kardashians over the book she wrote.

Caitlyn appeared on Piers Morgan’s show Life Stories on Thursday and spoke about her transformation from Bruce to Caitlyn, her struggles along the way, and why she is still fighting with her ex-wife and stepkids, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, and Rob Kardashian.

According to the interview, the complicated family is feuding because Caitlyn didn't tell the Kardashians about her gender confirmation surgery.

“I didn't tell anybody,” Caitlyn said. “Why? It’s none of their business.”

Caitlyn, formerly known as Bruce, underwent gender confirmation procedure in January 2017 and decided to keep it a secret, saying it wasn't that big of a deal.

“I didn't want them to leak it to the press,” Caitlyn said. “Of course I didn't trust them,”

The former Olympic athlete mentioned she didn't believe her ex-wife and step kids were entitled to know before the rest of the world.

“I had already been living at Caitlyn for a year and a half,” Caitlyn said.

But since the release of Caitlyn’s memoir, Secrets of My Life, the family has had some drama stirring. The book details Caitlyn’s transformation and reveals some pretty personal information about Caitlyn’s life, including the fact that Kris knew she wanted to become a woman early in their marriage.

Caitlyn claimed she told Kris she was having a gender crisis before they married.

“It was tough to hide that [I had breasts] so I was honest to that point,” Caitlyn said on Life Stories. “I told her before I ever slept with her.”

Kim said that she was a “little shocked” about the contents of the memoir, stating that some things “weren't true and didn't really make sense.”

“My heart breaks for my mom because I feel like she’s been through so much and [Caitlyn is] promoting this book and she’s saying all these things,” Kim said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in April. “I don’t think it’s necessary and I just feel like it’s unfair, things aren't truthful.”

A source told Us Weekly that the Kardashians are upset because Caitlyn didn't consult them before publishing her book and that they are “tired of being caught off guard.”

“I definitely got upset about it,” Kim said. “In our family, we definitely are always so close and stick through everything, so everything is definitely going to be fine.”

Caitlyn admitted to not having a close relationship with her stepchildren anymore like they used to before her transformation and divorce from Kris.

“I just don't communicate with them like I used to,” Caitlyn said. “It hurts but it's not the end of the world. Fortunately, I have a lot of children.”

Caitlyn is still close to Kylie and Kendall Jenner, her biological kids, saying, “We speak all the time.”

“It’s been a little tough over the last couple of years on the Kardashian side,” Caitlyn said at the U.K.’s Cambridge Union back in November. “…I don’t know what the future holds. We will see.”
