Caitlyn Jenner is, by her own admission, 'inseparable' from her much younger galpal Sophia Hutchins.

But in a new interview with Variety, the transgender reality star, 68, refused to address the question of whether she and the 22-year-old blonde are romantically involved.

“We are not going to get into that,' Caitlyn said when asked about the nature of their relationship. 'But we are very close. We do a lot of things together. We’re kind of inseparable. We’re the best of friends.'

The former husband of Keeping Up With The Kardashians momager Kris Jenner famously underwent gender reassignment surgery in January 2017 after previously revealing her plans to transition from Bruce to Caitlyn in 2015.  

The parent of reality stars Kendall and Kylie Jenner, she starred for two seasons in her own E! series I Am Cait in which she hung out with new friends in the trans community including Sophia.

Sophia transitioned while a student at Pepperdine University in Malibu and cited Caitlyn as her role model. 

Just last month, the pair attended the ESPY Awards together and in June she opted to attend a charity ball in Vienna, Austria, with Sophia instead of attending her son Brody's wedding.

The former Olympic decathlete has grown closer to Sophia amid the distance that's widened between her amid rifts with some of her children and Kardashian stepchildren.

A source previously told Heat Magazine of their relationship: 'Cait really sees herself spending the rest of her life with Sophia.

She lost her support system when she fell out with her family and these days, it feels like Sophia's the only person she can count on.'

Caitlyn appeared to acknowledge the distance from her family that includes children from three marriages and now grandchildren.

She admitted to Variety that she is closer to some of her offspring than others.

As for her ex-wife Kris, with whom she shares her daughters Kendall and Kylie, 'We haven’t talked in a long time,' she said.
