After months of speculation in the tabloids, Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars Bruce and Kris Jenner officially announced their separation yesterday afternoon. But it looks like Bruce may have jumped the gun a bit, because the former Olympian let it slip last weekend at a racing event that he was finally a free man. Uh oh, sounds like Bruce is implying that Kris kept him in a vice grip, huh?
As seen on previous episodes of the show, Bruce and Kris have been living apart – Bruce in his Malibu beach house and Kris at her estate in Calabasas. It seems only natural that a married couple who has decided to live in different cities would soon follow up with a separation announcement, but the world’s most famous reality couple waited a full year to make a statement on their marital status. Even more interesting is that neither has any plans to file for divorce. Apparently, Bruce and Kris are fine with their current living arrangements and have no desire to change the status quo. Sources close to the couple say this is because there’s no pre-nup in place and they’re worried about how a divorce might affect the $40 mil they earn each year from Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
In the statement released to the media, the Jenners say, “We are living separately and we are much happier this way.” They also added the bit used by every Hollywood couple during a split about how they still love and respect each other and yadayada. Love and respect each other they may, but that didn’t stop Bruce Jenner from flirting with a group of women at Virginia International Raceway. The reality star was there last weekend to race a Lamborghini, and he reportedly told the group that he was “finally free to do what I want and live life the way I want.”
It will be interesting to watch Bruce Jenner live “the way he wants,” and Kris’s reaction to this may prove to be even more intriguing.
So what do you think about Bruce and Kris Jenner’s separation? What’s next for the couple, and what could this mean for the show? Tell us in the comments!
