Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner have separated after 22 years of marriage, the Kardashian family matriarch confirms to Us Weekly. The momager and former Olympian have been secretly living apart for the past year, and while they have no immediate plans to divorce, Kris says "we are no longer a couple in that way."
We are living apart, but there is no animosity. We are united and committed to our family." She adds, "we are happier this way."
The former couple have two children together — Kendall and Kylie Jenner — and also jointly raised Kris's four famous children after the death of their father Robert Kardashian. Bruce Jenner also has four children from previous relationships, including Brandon and Brody Jenner.
Kim Kardashian and her beau Kanye West have been living with Kris in the family's palatial compound in Calabasas, California while Bruce has been staying at a beach house in nearby Malibu.
The Kardashian empire seems to be falling apart lately. While rumors of marital turmoil have been rampant for months, news of the separation comes as a surprise, especially as the public anticipates the divorce between Kris' daughter Khloe Kardashian and her estranged husbandLamar Odom.
Perhaps mom and daughter can get a two-for-one deal with their local divorce lawyer.
