“We are living separately and we are much happier this way,” Kris and Bruce explained in a 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 celebrity couple have two children together, Kendall and Kylie, and each have four kids from previous marriages, reminds Digital Spy.
This summer Khloe Kardashian told reporters that her mum and step-dad were living in separate homes, but that “they’re not having problems”.
“Well they’re not having problems, but they still like to live apart, which is definitely different,” Kardashian said on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
“You know Bruce and my mum, they wanted some… like, in my house, there is a man room for Lamar [Odom]. A room not a different house. So I think they took my idea and ran with it and they got another house.”
“Bruce stays there sometimes. I’m not for that. You know, to each their own. I don’t compare relationships. I just think a little too much time apart maybe isn’t the best thing. They’re like, ‘This is us, don’t judge us. We’ve been married 24 years’.”
The news surfaces after back in April Kris denied the rumors, spread by Star Magazine, that the couple filed for divorce.
“My husband and I have been married for over 20 years and I love him. We are so lucky that we get to have so much fun together and with our kids,” she wrote. “I also love that Bruce and I get to create so many amazing memories not just for ourselves, but also for our kids and grandkids. We are truly blessed.”
Kris continued: “Star Magazine, I know you’re going to write your BS to sell magazines, but I will do everything I can to protect my family. The conversation that Bruce supposedly had with our kids [about a possible divorce], NEVER happened. So if you’re going to talk to your usual ‘anonymous sources’ about these stories, at least try and make sure that they’re credible.
“Furthermore, I rarely have a second to myself as I am constantly surrounded by family and people. I cherish every second I get to spend with my family and look forward to many more precious moments with them in the years ahead.”
New roundup of rumors of the couple’s split came after Bruce’s sister, Karen Houghton, told In Touch magazine that her famous brother and his wife started living separately.
“[Kris and Bruce] are separated,” she told the publication. “Their relationship goes back and forth. I would love to see them get back together.” Houghton added that Bruce has “sought out a lawyer” but that the husband and wife “still do things together.”
According to the celebrities’ aunt, Bruce has been living in Malibu while Kris has been spotted in her residence with her daughters Kendall and Kylie in Calabasas.
