Kris Jenner files for divorce after 23 years of marriage
Kris and Bruce Jenner are proceeding with a divorce to make their separation official after 23 years of marriage and 11 months of separation. Kris Jenner filed divorce papers Monday afternoon in Los Angeles. The momager, 58, cited irreconcilable differences and was seen without a lawyer.
The parents of Kendall and Kylie Jenner have been fighting off divorce rumors for years. As seen on the family’s television series, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Bruce was spending more and more time at his Malibu beach house until he eventually moved in full time. Weeks later in October 2013, Kris and Bruce announced their separation, which simply consisted Bruce not living in the Calabasas home. At the time, Bruce noted that the place was too crowded.
Fortunately for their family (and avid fans), the much-anticipated separation is everything but bitter. The estranged couple still spends time together, talk everyday according to Kris, and remain "best friends." In the most recent season finale of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, we saw Bruce remaining an active member of the family.
Kris said last October after the announcement of their separation, "We are living apart. But there is no animosity. We are united and committed to our family." You could perhaps call this a "conscious uncoupling"?
This will be the second divorce for Kris who was once married to the late attorney, Robert Kardashian Sr. with whom Kris shares children Kourtney, Kim, Rob, and Khloe.
As for the gold medal Olympian, this will be Bruce’s third divorce. He was previously married to Chrystie Crownover with whom he shares children Burt and Casey. Jenner’s second marriage was to actress Linda Thompson - the pair share sons Brody and Brandon Jenner.
The sun is setting on the Jenner marriage, but we sure don’t see an end to their companionship and screen time. After all, they have 10 kids to keep an eye on together… and this probably makes for a really juicy season 10 of Keeping Up.
