Caitlyn, 67, says she initially agreed to do the show to build a trust fund for daughters Kendall and Kylie.
But also because Kris had intimidated pre-transition Bruce, particularly after the show took off and became huge.
Caitlyn wrote that KUWTK was a 'demarcation' point for the two of them - the more successful it became, the less Kris needed Bruce, leaving him feeling increasingly 'irrelevant.'
She reveals that Kris gets a 10 percent cut from each of her kid's phenomenal fortunes as their manager and also pockets a considerable sum from her executive producer role on the reality show.
But former Olympian Bruce never saw his paycheck from the show or from his many speaking engagements around the country. Kris seized it all, Caitlyn claims.
Bruce was allowed only a credit card and carefully supervised purchases, all of which were 'pored over.'

Caitlyn writes that Kris could be incredibly generous but only on her own terms. She bought Bruce a Porsche after he expressed an interest.
She also purchased a $200,000 membership in the exclusive Los Angeles country club, Sherwood, so he could play golf.
They were 'amazing gestures,' she writes, but it grew increasingly difficult not being able to make most financial decisions.
'Actually, I can't make any,' she writes of that time.
As Bruce, what kept him going was being a father. Kris, increasingly caught up in the family empire, saw his usefulness as a driver ferrying the kids to school and other events.
'Kris wants me out of the house as much as possible,' Caitlyn said.
In time, Bruce's four children from two early marriages got the message that Kris no longer wanted them around after Kendall and Kylie were born.
They later told him, Kris 'was fierce in her belief that I had only one family now and that was her and the Kardashians.'
While Kris still clings to her story that she was shocked and appalled by Bruce's big reveal, shedding 'copious tears' on the show, Caitlyn contends she told Kris about her gender issues before she even made love to her.
In fact, Bruce regularly dressed up as a woman during their marriage - something Kris seemed comfortable with.

Caitlyn says the only reason she stopped cross-dressing was that Kris had no interest in it.
Kris was only going along because this is 'what I want,' she wrote.
Caitlyn said that in fact Kris and she had an agreement over the cross-dressing.
'Take Caitlyn on the road—but she is not to play in our home or hometown. End of discussion.'

In the end, she was tired of 'taking it out on the road so I can spend an hour and a half to get dressed for fifteen minutes of freedom.'
In those tormented last years, the marriage became 'acrimonious misery.'
It imploded when KUWTK became a runaway success and Kris controlled all the purse strings.
It became 'a toxic combination of her withering anger with me and my defensiveness,' Caitlyn wrote.
In previous excerpts of the book published by People magazine, Caitlyn admitted getting intimate with now 61-year-old Kris was 'imbued' with love.
However she added: 'My attitude is no different than it was in high school: I'm just not entirely comfortable with it.'
Caitlyn obviously recognizes the intrigue many have about the lovemaking early in their relationship.

She writes: 'Since - let's not kid ourselves - everyone wants to know, Kris and I have good and frequent sex at the beginning.'
One obvious point of contention between the transgender star and momager is how much Kris knew about Caitlyn's gender issues as the gold medalist insists that she was transparent especially before getting intimate.
She explains: 'This will always be a subject of dispute between us. She insists that she was taken by surprise by my ultimate transition to Caitlyn, which obviously means in her mind that she did not know enough.'
Caitlyn said that she had told Kris there had been a woman inside her the entire time and that she even dressed in front of her as a woman 'several times'.
The Caitlyn even told the momager about her hormone therapy which gave her 36B breasts.

However Caitlyn alluded to Kris not understanding as she wrote: 'To Kris they were man boobs caused by my being out of shape.'
The excerpts obtained by People also reveal that his daughters Kendall and Kylie had once caught her dressing in women's clothing on camera.
Caitlyn explained: 'I went into Kylie's room to check myself out because it had a full-length mirror.'
However as the two were trying to catch each other in the act of stealing each other's clothes, they had accidentally recorded their father trying on different outfits.
'Later that night I heard them running to their mother yelling, 'Oh my God, what's on the computer screen?!' said Caitlyn. 'They were mercifully too young to understand.'
Caitlyn and Kris married in April 1991 after five months of dating and announced their separation in October 2013.
