Caitlyn Jenner claims in an upcoming docuseries on the Kardashian family that her former stepdaughter Kim Kardashian “calculated” fame from early on.

“Kimberly calculated from the beginning, ‘How do I become famous?’” the Olympian, 73, says in a trailer for Sky’s “House of Kardashian” released Thursday.

“Girls Gone Wild” founder and Kardashian family friend Joe Francis then suggests that the Skims founder’s 2000s sex tape with her ex Ray J was “a means to an end.”

“It was to create a controversy,” Francis, 50, adds.

The trailer for the three-part series also features an unnamed — and unseen —woman narrating about the family’s matriarch, Kris Jenner, wanting “to be more than just a housewife,” while another voiceover adds, “They ruined the world!”

Unlike E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and Hulu’s “The Kardashians,” the Kardashian-Jenners do not have any editorial control over “House of Kardashian,” which promises to be explosive.

“I was happy to participate in the interview process to share my side which points to the strength, influence and prowess my family has in captivating the world’s attention and keeping it over the years,” Caitlyn, who was married to Kris for 23 years, said in a statement.

“I am incredibly proud of all my children and stepchildren.”

Since her 2014 divorce from 67-year-old Kris, Caitlyn never has shied away from talking about the ins and outs of her family.

In the midst of Kanye West’s public breakdown last year, the former “I Am Cait” star revealed on “The Pivot Podcast” that living with the rapper, 46, was “difficult” for Kardashian, 42.

“Kimberly has been through a lot with the guys she’s been with, especially Kanye,” she shared.

In 2019, Caitlyn also admitted that she had not spoken to her ex-stepdaughter Khloé Kardashian in five years, as they had a falling out over her gender transition in 2015.

“I went through every kid, and Khloé for some reason was pissed off about something through this whole process. It’s been five or six years, and I really haven’t talked to her since,” the former decathlete said on “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here.”

“We were really close; I raised her since she was 5 years old. I really don’t know what her issues are.”

“House of Kardashian” airs in the UK on Oct. 8 on Sky Documentaries and streaming service Now.
