Kris Jenner Divorce Rumors Denied, 'Rubbish' Says Kardashian Matriarch
on Nov 16, 2012 10:56 AM EST
Kris Jenner defended the latest Kardashian rumor to hit the media- that her and her husband Bruce Jenner are headed toward a divorce.
Jenner, 57, addressed a report published in the latest issue of The National Enquirer that claimed Bruce, 63, was "secretly meeting lawyers to end their 21-year marriage."
"I said, 'Honey, I think we're getting a divorce.' He said, 'Honey don't bug me with this. I'm at the hobby store buying helicopter parts,' " she told E! News.
The head of the famous Kardashian and Jenner clan said the only thing they are quitting is the spread of the false claims.
"These kind of stories have been circulating for the last couple of years," she added. "We're absolutely not filing for divorce. Everything is great. We feel very blessed as a family. If we had to chase down and comment on every rumor we'd be working overtime. We just laugh it off. We love each other and just laugh about it."
Another source backed up Jenner's announcement: "They're not getting divorced," an insider told E! News. "It is all rubbish. This same basic story has been on covers of mags for the last year and none of them is true."
Rumors claimed the Olympic legend become fed up with the reality TV star's flirting with younger men and her obsession with the Kardashian business she is running, according to The National Inquirer.
"Bruce feels that Kris treats him like a doormat, and he's had enough," a source reportedly told the weekly tabloid. "She constantly belittles his appearance and complains to mutual friends that he's a boring old fart. Then she has the gall to flaunt her relationships with younger guys in his face!"
Bruce was reportedly so disappointed, he discussed the idea of a divorce with his golf pals at the Lake Sherwood Country Club located near the family home in Calabasas, Calif.
"He hates it when cronies at the Country Club jokingly call him Bruce Kardashian," the insider said. "Kris is continually perceived as the moneymaker and the one who wears the pants in the family, and he's sick and tired of the humiliation. One of Bruce's pals who's a sports entertainment lawyer has helped Bruce value the assets of the Kardashian-Jenner empire if he moves forward with a split."
"He's also talked to a divorce attorney buddy about potential custody arrangements for his two girls with Kris," the insider added.
The latest issue of the National Enquirer that ran the report arrived on newsstands Thursday, Nov. 15.
Speculation of an impending split began when an episode of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" aired in July where Bruce caught Kris contacting her ex-boyfriend, Todd Waterman. Waterman reportedly tried to rekindle the flame by setting up a date with the "momager."
Bruce walked in on Kris writing an email to her former lover after she bumped into Waterman at a Los Angeles tennis club, where she gave him a long passionate hug and the two exchanged contact information. Kris considered meeting with Waterman but backed out at the last minute.
