Divorce rumors are, once again, attacking the Jenner-Kardashian clan. Bruce Jenner, who is probably fed up with his wife’s fame-mongering ways, is the next family member to contemplate ending their marriage. After 21 years of marriage to third wife Kris Jenner, Bruce has been quietly talking to his golf buddies about his problems, and he’s secretly consulting divorce lawyers! That’s never a good sign.
A source tells The National Enquirer (via Radar Online)“Bruce feels that Kris treats him like a doormat, and he’s had enough. She con¬stantly belittles his appearance and complains to mutual friends that he’s a boring old fart. Then she has the gall to flaunt her relationships with younger guys in his face!”
Anyone who has seen the family’s reality show Keeping up with the Kardashians can see that these statements are true. There was an episode where Kris hires a personal stylist for Bruce and forces him to shop for new clothes to improve his look. Bruce is vehemently against it but after lots of nagging he goes along for the make over. Bruce eventually sees how his look could be improved and even likes having some new clothes but Kris was wrong to force a makeover on him. A lot of guys are not clotheshorses. Kris was trying to force her husband to be what she wants him to be, not letting him be himself.
In another episode of their reality show, Kris is taking tennis lessons and runs into the man with whom she had an affair while still married to her first husband, Robert Kardashian. She decides she wants to see him privately so she meets up with him later in the day. You can see in her eyes she is still hot for this guy who is 10 years her junior. Kris does confess to Bruce that she met up with him outside the tennis court. Bruce is floored and hurt. But since Kris has no sensitivity for her husband’s feelings and does not take her marriage vows seriously she makes a second date with her former lover. Fortunately, her daughter’s pleas to not go through with it finally kick her conscience into gear and Kris turns her car around while en route to her date. I can’t begin to imagine Bruce’s reaction to seeing this episode when it finally aired.
The trouble with the Jenner marriage goes beyond how Kris treats Bruce. Kris is perceived as the brains behind the family’s empire and there is little press about Bruce’s contributions to the family. He is an Olympic athlete who continues to do motivational speaking engagements and have product endorsements. Bruce has a great relationship with his kids from his previous marriages. He tried to get Kris to represent his musician son but she bristles at the idea. Bruce tells Kris she needs to start caring about his side of the family as much as her side.
There is also the recent news that the couple’s youngest daughters Kendall and Kylie may be in danger living in the Jenner home. On October 30 Radar Online reported The Los Angeles County of Department of Children and Family Services along with police made a visit to their home. An anonymous call was made on behalf of the girls saying they were in some sort of distress. My guess the distress in question is that these girls are growing up in a famewhoring, self absorbed and materialistic family so they are not learning good morals.
Radar also published the following statement from the family: “Amongst the several ridiculous accusations all of which were proven to be false this situation cannot go without being addressed. It’s a shame that anyone can make up such hurtful and hideous untruths especially when children are involved. We are taking this matter very seriously and investigating to find out who is responsible for fabricating such a terrible story and will take the necessary legal action to ensure this does not happen again.” Well, if they weren’t hiding anything there would be no need to put out such a statement.
Bruce will be talking with lawyers about financial matters, but there is also the question of custody of Kendall (17) and Kylie (15). What do you think about this situation?
