Bruce Jenner doesn't feel he should be sued for the death of 69-year-old Kimberly Howe.
Following the fatal car crash, which took Howe's life back in February, her family filed a wrongful death lawsuit, claiming Jenner should be financially responsible for alleged negligence.
In court papers, obtained by E! News on Wednesday, Jenner deems Howe's death "a terrible tragedy" but claims the Plaintiffs are "financially independent and successful…living and working and residing out-of-state for decades, who do not and cannot allege that they are financially dependent upon their stepmother for the necessities of life."
In their suit, the adult stepchildren of Howe, William Howe and Dana Redmond, claimed, "The death of Kimberly Howe caused plaintiffs to suffer enormous damages."
They children also alleged the death caused them to lose "the love, affection, support, comfort, society, financial support and more from [Kimberly] upon whom they were dependent" and incur other expenses "to their great detriment."
However, according to TMZ, Howe had no relationship with her stepchildren, and hadn't spoken to them in years.
Immediately after the accident, Jenner told E! News, "My heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loved ones, and to all of those who were involved or injured in this terrible accident. It is a devastating tragedy and I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them. I will continue to cooperate in every way possible."
