Bruce and Kris Jenner made headlines on Tuesday when they announced they have separated, but, as the story starts to grow, the whole situation is starting to sound more and more confusing. To help straighten everything out, we're sorting through the facts about the breakup.
What Does "Separated" Mean, Anyway?
It's important to note that when the couple broke the news, they said that they "are living separately" but did not say they had filed for separation. "We are much happier this way," Bruce and Kris wrote in a joint statement. "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."
The thing that is confusing about their statement is that we already knew the two were living apart. The current season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which is currently on the air, shows Bruce living in a separate home in Malibu, while Kris remains at her usual digs in Hidden Hills, CA. Khloé Kardashian has also openly talked about her parents living in separate homes, saying on The Tonight Show back in June that while their arrangement is "definitely different," it works for them. However, Kris and Bruce's announcement was meant to confirm that Bruce had moved full-time out of the couple's home.
They Aren't Getting Divorced
Despite rumors flying that Kris is ready to file for divorce, both she and Bruce have firmly denied those allegations. Bruce said yesterday that "nobody is filing for divorce," and Kris flat-out rejected reports that she has divorce papers drawn up for future use.
They're Still Friends
On Thursday, just two days after announcing their split, Kris Jenner and her stepson Brody Jenner posed for what looked like a happy family portrait with Bruce. "Another amazing night with Brody and Brandon Jenner and Bruce," Kris wrote. Apparently, the Kardashian family matriarch posted the snaps to end reports that she is feuding with her two stepsons.
