On Tuesday, October 8, a statement was issued by Kris and Bruce Jenner confirming that they were separating after 22 years of marriage. Considering the power couple have been living apart for almost a year the announcement is that shocking.
The trouble began in July 2012 when Bruce allegedly discovered Kris sending an email to her ex-fling, Todd Waterman. The trouble only continued when reports surfaced that Kris Jenner was meeting up with Waterman, the man she cheated on ex-husband, late Robert Kardashian behind Bruce’s back.
After defending their marriage numerous times, the Jenner’s issued their statement after Kris’ sister, Karen Houghton revealed that the troubled couple had indeed separated. The joint statement from the Jenner’s was a simple, “We are living separately and we are much happier this way.”
Last December a family insider said, “Kris and Bruce are all but over. They have grown apart and their relationship is all about business these days rather than love and romance. They’ve build a brand together though, so they remained determined to keep up appearances for the cameras.”
In February of this year, another family insider revealed, “They don’t even sleep in the same room anymore. In my opinion, absolutely everything they do now is for show and basically it is easier and more lucrative for them to stay together than to break up.”
In June, daughter Khloe Kardashian who is having her own marital problems appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and commented on her mother’s marriage. “In my house there’s a man room for Lamar, so I think they took my idea and ran with it. They got another house and Bruce stays there sometimes. I’m not for that, but it’s too each their own. I think too much time apart is not a good thing.”
Other sources close to the couple insist that Bruce wanted them to go to marriage counseling but Kris Jenner wanted no part of that. The source went on to say that after refusing to go to counseling with Bruce, “the writing was on the wall.”
