The famous Kardashian Christmas card is going to look pretty empty this year – after 22 years, Bruce and Kris Jenner are hopping on a private jet to Splitsville, USA.
Reality TV’s golden couple have reportedly been separated for over a year but held back on pulling the trigger because they didn’t want to mess with the family’s brand. Also, they’re in need of a dramatic season finale. Between these two and Khloe and Lamar, you can almost hear the sound of the Kardashian’s divorce lawyer ordering himself a brand new yacht.
The couple released a joint statement yesterday to break the bad news:
“We are living apart. But there is no animosity. We are united and committed to our family. We are happier this way.”
This isn’t a exactly a breaking story, anyone who watches their show will know that Bruce bought himself a cozy seaside mansion almost a year ago. Yeah, you knew. You don’t have to pretend you don’t watch Keeping Up With The Kardashians, we’re all friends here.
Sources are saying that Bruce is now living full time in Malibu while Kris stays in Calabasas with their youngest daughters, Krispy and Kreme or whatever their names are. There are no plans to officially divorce yet, but since when did this family want to skip over the chance for a highly publicized court battle? Just ask O.J.
Shock horror – they are still filming the show, and the split will be one of the major plot lines of season 9. Personally, I’m hoping there’s going to be at least one scene of Bruce, Lamar and Kris Humphries all meeting up to play basketball and throw darts at their respective wedding pictures.
This isn’t far behind the news that ratings for KUWTK have taken a serious nosedive and it might be facing cancellation. I’m this announcement is totally unrelated though, guys. Just like the fact that a insider for the show has said the family is “very conscious of the fact they can make more in syndication.”
But the fact they’ve held off announcing the split for an entire year until the ratings are in need of it is totally a coincidence.
Good luck, Bruce. Put those Olympian legs to work and run as far away as you can.
