Kris Jenner, Bruce Jenner split: No prenup with $125 million fortune at stake could result in messy divorce for the couple


Bruce and Kris Jenner said they ‘will always remain best friends’ despite the split.

Bruce and Kris Jenner could be headed for a divorce of Olympic proportions.

The now-separated spouses have a combined fortune topping $125 million and never signed a prenup, RadarOnline reported.

Bruce, 63, was the one with the fame and fortune at the time of their 1991 marriage, having parlayed his Decathlon gold medal from the 1976 Montreal Olympics into his famous Wheaties endorsement and other lucrative deals.

He’s since taken a back seat to Kris, 57, the powerful “momager” at the helm the multimillion-dollar “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” entertainment empire.

One legal expert said Bruce could turn the tables on his wife in a messy divorce.


“My understanding is that he’s subjugated himself and his career – his motivational speaking, training and aviation business – to be the stay at home dad for the two children they had together,” New York divorce lawyer Steven J. Eisman told the Daily News.
“If he takes the position that he stopped pursuing his career because they had an agreement he was going to watch these kids, that would give him a good claim for alimony and the need to support the lifestyle they enjoyed together,” Eisman, who runs the family law practice at Abrams Fensterman in Lake Success, said.
Bruce and Kris have two teen daughters together: Kendall, 17, and Kylie, 16.


Bruce has four other children from two previous marriages and recently has been reconnecting with son Brody Jenner, 30, a reality TV star in his own right who has a tense relationship with Kris.
Brody clashed with his stepmom in a recent "Keeping Up" episode over a putting green he wanted to have installed for his dad at the couple’s Hidden Hills, Calif. home. Bruce now is living apart from Kris in a beach rental closer to his “Princes of Malibu” son.



Eisman said Brody and other friends and relatives could play a big role in a possible divorce if they have Bruce’s ear.
“In high profile divorces, there’s always somebody whispering in one party’s ear that they’re being taken advantage of,” he said. “Bruce may get a bug that he’s being taken advantage of and step forward and get more aggressive.”



An unidentified source on "Keeping Up" told People magazine that Bruce is indeed a henpecked hubby around his wife.
"Kris runs the show, that's for sure. Bruce basically had no say in anything. He was told what to do. You'd go over [to their house] and there were always a million people running around, and it was pretty obvious Bruce didn't feel comfortable in his own house anymore. Half the time Kris would just shut him right down like she didn't want to hear from him," the reality show source told People.
"Bruce just wanted some peace and simplicity in their lives," the source said. "It's not that he doesn't appreciate what they have [in terms of money], but he didn't feel the need to always have more, like Kris did."



The source said that by the time Kim Kardashian and her rapper boyfriend Kanye West moved into the Hidden Hills home with their newborn daughter North last June, Bruce was already keeping his distance.

Bruce started calling the rental home “his place,” and the couple eventually had to own up to their split, the source said.
The Jenners confirmed their separation in a joint statement Tuesday.
"We are much happier this way," the pair told E! News. "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 People source said they continue to speak on a daily basis.
"It's just one of those things where they were happier with a little space between them than being together,” the source said. “There was no smoking gun or straw that broke the camel's back. Over the past few months they were just moving towards this and finally decided to acknowledge it."
