Kris and Bruce Jenner split: Is a costly divorce next?
Now that Kris and Bruce Jenner are officially separated, the couple could be heading toward a very ugly, very expensive divorce. Find out the shocking amount Bruce Jenner is worth without the Kardashians.
"We are living separately and we are much happier this way," said Kris and Bruce. "But we will always have much love and respect for each other. Even though we are separated, we will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our number one priority."
Kris and Bruce have two daughters together, Kendall and Kylie. Kendall Jenner is 17-years-old with a successful modeling career. Kylie Jenner just turned 16-years-old this past August and is rumored to be dating Jaden Smith, the son of Hollywood movie star Will Smith. Last year, Kendall and Jaden were romantically linked but both Jenner and Smith denied they were a couple.
Bruce Jenner has a total of six kids, four of whom are from his first two marriages. Bruce and his second wife, actress Linda Thompson, have two sons, Brandon and Brody.
Will the Kris and Bruce finalize their split and head toward divorce? Neither party has filed for divorce just yet. If they do, it's likely their divorce could be insanely expensive. Kris Jenner is worth a reported $20 million — thought to be mostly earned through her management of not only the Kardashian family but also Kourtney's boyfriend, Scott Disick.
Bruce Jenner could be worth as much as $100 million. OK! Magazine reports that Bruce's Olympic glory in the 1970s spawned several lucrative business ventures, like Bruce Jenner Aviation and Jenner Productions.
It's not clear why Kris and Bruce have split, but some say the split could be due to tension over Kris' fame-seeking ways. InTouch magazine claims the couple has been "having problems for months" and that Kris even refused to wear her wedding ring while filming for her now-canceled talk show. For months, Kris Jenner denied any marital tension; telling E! News the rumors that she and Bruce had split were totally inaccurate.
"We just laugh it off," said Kris back in November 2012. "We love each other and just laugh about it… These kind of stories have been circulating for years."
About 30 minutes ago, after news of Kris' separation from Bruce went public, Kris tweeted that she was possibly indulging in a little comfort food.
The rest of the very famous Kardashian family has yet to speak publicly about Kris and Bruce Jenner's separation.
