Brody Jenner 'might skip ESPYs'

Brody Jenner is reportedly still upset by comments Caitlyn Jenner made about him and his siblings.

Caitlyn, who used to be known as Bruce before she transitioned, is Brody's father. The two haven't always been close, and they often discussed their relationship on their TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

They've bonded in recent years, with Brody being one of his father's biggest supporters lately. However, all the media attention surrounding Caitlyn is said to be getting too much for the 31-year-old.

“Brody had been extremely supportive of everything that she had been doing. Long before Kim [Kardashian, step-sister] publicly embraced it, he was there," a source told Radar.

“Brody just doesn’t want to be a part of the publicity circus. If Brody and Caitlyn don’t come to some common ground, he won’t be going to the [ESPYs].”

The ESPY Awards honour athletic achievement and other sports-related performance, with former Olympian Caitlyn set to receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the ceremony on July 15.

But recent remarks that Caitlyn made about being hurt that her four oldest children Brody, Burt, Brandon and Casey are not appearing in her docu-series have apparently left a bad taste in Brody's mouth.

"Brody is still very hurt about the comments," the insider said.

It's expected Caitlyn will be surrounded by family when she picks up her award, including ex-wife Kris Jenner's children Kim, Kourtney and Khloé. However Kris' son Rob isn't thought to be going.

“Rob Kardashian isn’t expected to attend because he just isn’t in a place that he is ready to be seen in public. But he is very supportive of Caitlyn,” the insider added.
