Is Bruce Jenner saying goodbye to “Keeping Up With the Kardashians”? Not so fast.
After reports surfaced online that Bruce would be stepping away from the long-running reality show, his estranged wife, Kris, has spoken out about the rumors.
On Thursday (February 13), sources close to Bruce apparently told TMZ that he wanted “nothing to do with Hollywood,” saying he would rather focus his time on his hobbies, which include golfing and flying helicopters, and rebuilding his relationship with his sons. But Kris brushed that off.
“We film together every day,” the Kardashian/Jenner matriarch told “Entertainment Tonight.” “Bruce had a speech on [the] East Coast, so he was gone for 24 hours. … We start filming season 10 in January, including Bruce.”
During a recent season of “KUWTK,” Jenner moved out of the home he shared with Kris, choosing to spend most of his time at a rented place in Malibu, California. Though Bruce insisted it was because he needed more personal space in an increasingly crowded house, the move immediately sparked rumors of a separation.
By October 2013, the speculation was confirmed, however, when Kris and Bruce announced that they were much happier living apart. After 22 years of marriage, they were calling it quits.
Bruce’s fate on the E! series isn’t the only topic of discussion these days. The reality TV dad has been making headlines since he opted to undergo Adam’s Apple surgery. Jenner has also been sporting long, ombre locks and a bit of a style transformation.
Even if Bruce is continuing to film with the family, he has already taken a noticeable step back from the cameras on the season that’s currently airing. The former Olympian has been featured only sporadically since the premiere episode where they announced the split to their clan.
And more questions remain: Will Bruce be featured in the big events the Kardashians have lined up for the remainder of the season, including the always-anticipated family vacation episodes and Kim’s engagement to Kanye West? (It was rumored that Jenner did not attend the engagement.)
Maybe we’ll know soon enough as Kimye’s engagement episode is set to air on Sunday, February 16.
