Bruce Jenner Drops $50K On New Car As Kris Jenner Files Divorce Papers

He’s free! Bruce Jenner didn’t sit home an cry after his wife of 23 years filed for divorce. In fact, Bruce did something pretty amazing… he bought himself a new car. According to TMZ, Bruce dropped $50K on a NASCAR-approved UTV race car yesterday. The Olympic gold medalist certainly likes his toys, and now that he doesn’t have a controlling wife around to tell him “no” all the time, chances are he’s going to splurge a bit. And you know what people have to say about that? Good for him.

According to the report, Jenner purchased the car from NASCAR driver Robby Gordon and it was an “impulse buy.” Those close to Jenner said that he was extremely happy about the new car, and that he was “grinning from ear to ear” — literally — when he picked it up.

Bruce Jenner has lived most of his life in the shadow of Kris Jenner and the Kardashian family. Although he did participate in the family’s reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, everyone could tell that Bruce was kind of just “there” and wasn’t given too much say about, well, anything.

Bruce and Kris announced their separation 11 months ago, but told the media that they weren’t getting divorced. They found that they still loved and cared for each other very much, but they were better off living apart. Bruce moved into a beach house in Malibu and Kris stayed in their Calabasas home. Although they still took vacations together and were supposedly in touch with each other every day, the two apparently realized that they didn’t want to be attached legally anymore. Or perhaps this was the plan all along.

According to E! News, Kris took to Twitter to wish a happy anniversary to Bruce in April. “Happy Anniversary to one of the most amazing men I know!!!!” Kris tweeted. It’s possible that she was faking it, of course.

Bruce Jenner has been in the news quite a bit lately for things completely unrelated to his relationship with Kris Jenner. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, there have been rumors floating around that Bruce wants to have a sex change. He has been accused of wearing lipstick and Spanx, getting weekly manicures, growing out his hair, shaving his legs — and his Adam’s Apple — and taking estrogen pills. Just the other day there was photographic evidence of the Spanx rumor — and sources say that Bruiser is “obsessed” with the shape wear.

Bruce just moved up a notch in the man-department when he bought his new car though…
