Kris and Bruce Jenner have split, the Kardashian momager has confirmed.
Kris took to Us Weekly to put rumors to rest. “We are living apart,” she revealed. “But there is no animosity. We are united and committed to our family.”
“We ended a marriage, but that’s not the end of our friendship,” she said. “I will always love him, but we are [no] longer a couple in that way.”
Together, the couple has two daughters, Kylie (16) and Kendall (17). Bruce has four kids from a previous marriage, and Kris has four kids from her marriage with OJ Simpson lawyer Robert Kardashian — Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob. They have been married for 22 years, and a divorce is not in motion.
“We are happier this way,” Kris told the mag, which reported that the family has been keeping the split secret for a year.
The divide between the talk show host and former Olympian has been playing out on the family’s reality show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” At the beginning of the season, Jenner boys Brody and Brandon come into the mix, mingling with their half-siblings. While they hung out, they encouraged Bruce to stick up for himself against Kris, who likes to maintain control over the family’s image. During Kim’s pregnancy with baby North West, Kris had Bruce move to Malibu with daughters Kylie and Kendall, while Kanye West and Kim moved into the house. Another storyline included a time when Bruce had to schedule an appointment with his wife to ask her if he could keep a gun in the house.
