Bruce Jenner is primarily known these days for having a face full of Botox and a penchant for doing whatever Kris Jenner tells him to do. But apparently, back in the day, he busied himself with being a shitty father to his son, Brody.

In a clip from "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" posted on US Weekly, the 29-year-old Jenner offspring got a little sassy with his dad, comparing the type of father that the former Olympic decathlete is to his youngest daughters, Kylie and Kendall, to the type of father he was decades ago:

"The way I see Bruce with Kendall and Kylie and Brandon, I'm actually so happy for them...I think Bruce is an incredible human being and I think that Bruce is an incredible father -- he just wasn't a great father to me."

The younger Jenner doesn't leave it at that, though. He goes on to try to have a little heart-to-heart with his old man, but sadly, it does not go well. In fact, Bruce displays exactly the type of parenting to which we can assume Brody is referring:

Brody: "It's interesting to watch how you are with the girls...Because it's like, something I'm not really used to. You weren't around since I was a kid and it's like . . . " Bruce: "Now's not the time to talk about it."

Interestingly, Brody Jenner was once featured on the reality show "Princes of Malibu," the premise of which was spotlighting the lives of young men who are spoiled rotten by their parents.
