Kris and Bruce Jenner live in separate houses, but that doesn’t mean they’re separated or planning on getting a divorce.
Khloe Kardashian sat down with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show Wednesday, and was asked if Kris and Bruce Jenner are having marital troubles, as the gossip media often reports. Bruce Jenner recently decided to buy another house, which spawned many reports that there was a rift developing between the reality TV power couple.
Then, on the Season 8 premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Bruce announced that he was moving out because he wanted his own space. Kris supported the idea, and told the family that the decision was mutual.
But despite all appearances, Khloe says that the two aren’t having troubles in their marriage.
“They’re not having problems, but they still like to live apart,” Khloe said, “which is definitely different. You know, Bruce and my mom, they wanted some…
“In my house there is a man room for Lamar. A room, not a different house. So I think they took my idea and ran with it. They got another house and Bruce stays there sometimes.”
Khloe also said that while she tries not to judge, she does think that the idea is strange.
“I don’t compare relationships. I just think a little too much time apart maybe isn’t the best thing. They say, ‘Don’t judge us. We’ve been married for 24 years. Blah, blah.’ I’m like, ‘I know people who’ve been married longer that still live together.'”
Kris herself crushed rumors of separation and even infidelity in an April blog post. Last year, during an interview with Esquire, she explained why her marriage to Bruce works:
“We’re exact opposites,” she said, “in that he’s more stern and serious, he’s kind of the voice of reason, and I am … You’ve got to remember that this is my second life. I was a housewife and a mother; that was my priority for the first half of my life. Now, after my first litter grew up, I had two more kids with Bruce, and he wanted to be really involved, and I went to work. He made that decision, because with his first kids, he maybe wasn’t the best father. With us, he got a second chance.”
