Caitlyn Jenner seemed to plead for Elon Musk‘s legal backing to fight Disney after being dropped from “The Kardashians” — but she’s not actually pursuing it … TMZ has learned.
Sources with direct knowledge tell us Caitlyn has zero plans to sue the Mouse House and was simply shining a light on her experience with the studio by commenting under the EM’s original post … where he explicitly said he would provide legal support (namely, funding) to those who felt they’d been discriminated against by Disney or its subsidiaries.
Hulu (Disney subsidiary) never put me on my family’s show – I had been on since day 1- when it switched from E!
Caitlyn’s comment under Elon’s post read … “Hulu (Disney subsidiary) never put me on my family’s show – I had been on since day 1- when it switched from E!” On its face, it certainly sounded like she was serious … especially since Elon seemed to be seriously baiting.
Now, while our sources tell us CJ has no plans to take Elon up on his offer to sue right now, if any bombshell information surfaces from the Kardashians’ reality show on Hulu that pushes the envelope against Caitlyn … we’re told she would possibly revisit the idea.
You’ll recall … Caitlyn starred in almost all 20 seasons of E! ‘s “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” alongside her ex-wife Kris Jenner, her stepkids Kourtney, Kim, and Khloé, and biological daughters Kendall and Kylie. Caitlyn never appeared in the revamped series though, “The Kardashians,” when it moved over to Hulu in 2022.
Last month, CJ expressed similar frustration over the Disney non-invite when replying to an X post from political consultant Richard Grenell, who blasted the network for its “partisan” stance.
The reality star commented at the time … “I wonder if that’s why they fired me from my family’s reality show when it switched over to Hulu (@Disney), from E!. I must not be woke enough.”
Cailyn added — “Too bad… I remember when Bob Iger was a young, hard working, valet, carrying my bags, for me right after I won the Olympics.”
ICYMI … Elon is funding former “Mandalorian” actress Gina Carano‘s lawsuit … where she claims Disney+ and LucasFilm wrongfully terminated her from her job after she posted her political views on social media.
That’s why this Caitlyn convo is even happening — because Elon is legitimately putting his money where his mouth is on this issue against Disney.
Back to Caitlyn … things may not have worked out with “The Kardashians” — but she’s gone from reality TV to FOX, working for the network as a Fox News contributor, which she’s really enjoying.
So, she’s got that going for her … and there’s no future court date against Disney, at least not right now.
