Sophie Hutchens on Caitlyn Jenner: ‘We were never romantically involved’

10th Annual Face Forward Gala

In 2018, we discussed Sophia “Sophie” Hutchins and her relationship with Caitlyn Jenner. Sophie is 23 years old right now, but when she met Caitlyn, she was either 20 or 21, and Caitlyn is now 70 years old. When we first talked about Sophie and Caitlyn’s relationship, they seemed to be dating and living together. Sophie gave a very strange interview last year where she went on and on about how they’re not romantically involved, but that they’re life partners and business partners and yes, they live together but it’s not what we think. It was… strange. And it’s still strange. Well, Sophie has given a new interview to the New York Times and she’s still saying that she and Caitlyn were never romantically involved. Which really just makes everything seem so bizarre between them, but whatever. You can read the interview here. Some highlights:

How she looks like Ivanka Trump. Ms. Hutchins grinned at the comparison to the first daughter. “I’ll take it,” she said, adding that she is not a registered Republican. “I think Ivanka is gorgeous.”

Her relationship with Caitlyn: “We were never romantically involved.” So why have the tabloid reports persisted? “Because we weren’t addressing it,” she said. “I don’t feel a need to address my sex life, quite frankly, unless I want to.”

She was a college student with a glam squad: One member of her glam squad was working with Ms. Jenner and thought the two would hit it off. “We were introduced through my makeup artist at a M.A.C. photo shoot,” Ms. Hutchins said. “Having a similar sense of humor, we spent the entire time laughing and ended up meeting for brunch, and we’ve been great friends ever since.”

She became Caitlyn’s business manager: Although Ms. Hutchins had no relevant experience, she was persuasive and ambitious enough to convince Ms. Jenner to hire her. “I saw nobody was managing her, and there were all these people taking massive advantage. And I was saying, ‘Caitlyn, if I don’t step in here and start managing you, you’re going to go broke.’” They quickly developed a level of trust and, during her senior year, Ms. Hutchins became Ms. Jenner’s manager, taking a 10 percent cut. She also moved into Ms. Jenner’s ridge-top home in Malibu. “We made a lot of money together and still do.”

She’s shilling her own beauty product: Being associated with the Jenner-Kardashian clan probably doesn’t hurt. “I’m on good terms with all the family, but I’m closest with Kris, Kim, Kylie and Kendall.”

As inappropriate as it was to think that Sophie and Caitlyn were romantically involved, I feel like this is worse? Sophie basically manipulated her way into Caitlyn’s life and business and now she’s parlaying their business relationship to network with investors and various Kardashian-Jenners so she can start her own beauty product business. I mean… what’s going on with Caitlyn? I guess this arrangement makes her happy, but YIKES. It really feels like some kind of long con, right? Or is Sophie merely a world-class hustler?

    Whatever product she’s shilling, I ain’t buyin’ it. She might be 23 (in the shade), but she looks 33.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      her nose job, and the makeup she uses to enhance/hide it, are both terrible. she’s got very pretty eyes, but the bottom half of her face looks so plastic.

  2. Lennn says:

    What’s wrong with Caitlyn is that she is a very lonely narcissist.

  3. Pixie says:

    Personally, I really don’t see how a 20 year old student manipulated a 70 year old wealthy, seasoned and experienced business woman with a whole team of lawyers/business people behind her. If anything, it’s super odd that Caitlyn would invite a pretty 20 year old girl to come and live with her just as she is going through this life-altering transition. Of course, Sophie is presenting it this way but there is a definite power imbalance here and it’s making me uncomfortable.

    • Lala11_7 says:

      Caitlyn isn’t a seasoned and experienced business woman…because her business failed and were failing before Kris came into the picture…The optics of this is deplorable…but it’s on brand for that WHOLE Klan

      • ItReallyIsYouNotMe says:

        It sure sounds like Caitlyn gave her the job because she has a sexual interest in Sophie. Whether Sophie encourages that interest, who knows, but common sense says she probably does. It’s ridiculous to say that Kaitlyn needed a business manager so badly that she would go to this 20-year-old with no experience because she had no other options, as opposed to Kris freaking Jenner who is Caitlin‘s ex-wife and whatever else you want to say about her is a business manager extraordinaire.

      • Murphy says:

        Seriously. I remember in some documentary about the Kardashians that mentioned Kris’ divorce from Robert dragging on and Bruce in a talking head was like “I told Kris/Robert to stop arguing about money, I’ll pick up the pieces (and finance Kris)” PUH-LEASE. Any cash he had in the 90’s was engineered by Kris, she did all the work behind the Bruce Jenner show before she moved on to Kim.

      • Tourmaline says:

        The most surprising thing to me is that Sophie says she is close to Kris? Hmmm. I thought Kris and Caitlyn were not close at all but maybe I’m out of step on my Kardashian Jenner knowledge.

      • Pixie says:

        @Itreallyisyounotme I totally agree. There is no way this experienced, super wealthy woman NEEDS a 20 year old student in her house, managing her career. It’s bizarre and I honestly don’t see it ending great.

  4. Redgrl says:

    Caitlyn Jenner still thinks, speaks and acts like a privileged white republican man – so no sympathy from me.

    • Joanna says:

      Omg, yes 🙌🙌🙌🙌

    • girl_ninja says:

      True. But many white women piggyback their men, do she’s acting likes white woman.

    • FC says:

      I always felt that Caitlyn was homophobic, before and after she transitioned. She refused to admit her sexual preferences during her Diane Sawyer interview, only mumbling something about possibly trying to date a man because she felt men should be with women. She misrepresents the transgender community by implying her gender orientation has anything at all to do with her sexual orientation (it does not). She’s a terrible person and is probably paying this woman to deny that it’s a sexual relationship.

    • Erin says:

      THIS 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽

    • schmootc says:

      Yup, yup, yup. And don’t forget rich!

  5. Elle says:

    They insinuated they were together. Please.

  6. BaronSamedi says:

    Yeah, I think Caitlyn is just Sophie’s sugar mama and honestly? More power to both of them. I don’t believe that Caitlyn, having been married to Lucifer’s Homegirl, is naive enough to get taken in by a con-artist.

    I honestly think Caitlyn is a bit lonely and she’s essentially paying for companionship. Sad but harmless.

    • Ann says:

      Caitlyn is a trump voter. And she has made many horrible business decisions throughout her life. She’s absolutely naive enough to be taken advantage of. She’s also a pretty shitty person overall. If this is a grift Caitlyn deserves it.

  7. Adrien says:

    Transgender people tend to look out for each other. I’ll give her the benefit.

  8. Murphy says:

    “I feel like this is worse? Sophie basically manipulated her way into Caitlyn’s life and business”

    I’m ok with it because its Caitlyn Jenner. She gets what she deserves.

  9. Ash says:

    I know it’s BG but supposedly Sophie has an athlete boyfriend somewhere. Also it’s rumored that Caitlyn pays for all of Sophie’s expenses but no allowance, therefore Sophie has found others to supplement with cash. ALLEGEDLY

  10. Esp.Lumiere says:

    I feel like Caitlyn is in love with her. Maybe they have a sexual relationship, maybe not. I wouldnt be surprised that they do and that Caitlyn is just closeted about the relationship. She’s always been quite homophobic. Sophie is riding that waive either way.

    As for the money, Kris was always the one to manage their assets. Caitlyn never had any financial sense. In one of the episodes, Kris talks about how she had to get Bruce out of financial turmoil.

  11. holly hobby says:

    Maybe because Caitlyn is a needy narcissist? She basically pushed her kids away and the Klan isn’t really talking to her either. I do think she is naive enough to be used by this crook. I smell elder abuse (taking advantage of an elderly person’s finances) on this.

  12. Nikki says:

    Sophie’s just doing what thousands of other LA girls have done before her, found some old, lonely fool to pay their way. I feel sorry for both of them. But Sophie will land well.

  13. Jana says:

    23? Wow, Sophie could easily pass for 35 or 40. What she sees in Caitlyn Jenner is beyond me.I hated Bruce Jenner way before he transitioned to Caitlyn, getting boobs didn’t change my opinion one bit. She is a bitter, gun loving, right wing nut job. Always has been, always will be.

  14. Bee says:

    I honestly had no idea until recently reading it that Sophie was also trans. I just thought she was an OG woman with bad filler lips and a desperate need for fame.

    Move over Bella Hadid, we have a new ‘worst nose job in LA’ winner!
