Brody Jenner is one of many members in the Kardashian/Jenner family to address rumors that his father, Bruce Jenner, and stepmother Kris Jenner are headed for divorce.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians season 8 newcomer talked about the couple's relationship status in the September print edition of United Kingdom's NOW.
"I stay out of their business, but as far as I'm concerned, they haven't split up," Brody reportedly told the magazine. "Dad's been in Malibu - he grew up out here - and the press has made a big deal of it."
He also said speculation that the couple is headed for a divorce is "just rumors."
Kris and Khloe Kardashian both said in June that Bruce is living in Malibu while his wife resides in their Calabasas home. Kris shared details of her living arrangement with Bruce in an interview with Access Hollywood. She said living apart works for them because "it does get a little congested" in their Calabasas home.
"It's a wonderful idea. It's amazing to have a little bit of space," she said at the time.
Kardashian denied her parents are breaking up by telling Jay Leno that month, "They're not having problems, but they still like to live apart." The couple's daughter, Kendall Jenner, later told The New York Times about the separation claims, "It's just stupid; that's not true."
"I don't feel anything about it," Kendall added, "It doesn't hurt me. It's not something that gets to me. I know the truth. I live with my parents, and I know what's going on."
Kris' sister, Karen Houghton, told InTouch earlier in October that Bruce and his wife " are separated" and he is seeking legal advice about his split. She is one of the few family members to admit the couple have parted ways and said she hopes they can fix their troubled marriage.
"Their relationship goes back and forth," she revealed. "I would love to see them get back together."
Mail Online published photos of Kris without her wedding ring in late September when she went backstage of the Broadway play Chicago.
Bruce was photographed speed racing with his son Brandon Jenner in a Lamborghini over the weekend, E! Online reported. The father and son took to the racetrack at the Lamborghini Series in Alton, Va, at the Virgina International Raceway. Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey, an avid race car driver, was also there and competed in the Le Mans Series.
