Kim Kardashian is getting a divorce, and younger sister Khloe is also allegedly having marriage problems. And if a new report is to be believed, momager Kris Jenner’s relationship is on the rocks, too.
According to The National Enquirer, Kris’ hubby of 20 years, Bruce Jenner, stormed out after the two had a huge fight Feb. 27. The problem? Bruce is worried that Kris is turning their two daughters, Kendall and Kylie, into “Kardashian Robots” after a photo shoot in which the teens portrayed the creepy twins from The Shining.
Bruce has “had it with Kris’ manipulative ways and packed his bags and left after the fight,” an “insider” dishes to the mag.
Bruce caught a flight out of Los Angeles after he confronted Kris about “exploiting the teens.” Uh, he knows Kris, right? She’s made a career out of exploiting her children. This shouldn’t be news to him.
“Kris was crying hysterically when she finally got Bruce on his cell phone,” the insider tells The Enquirer. “She sobbed that she was sorry for everything and that if he came back, they could get the marriage back on track. But Bruce is fed up with his wife’s cold, bloodless ambition for the children. He was so angry he wouldn’t even tell her where he was. He just said that she needed help big-time [editor’s note: he’s right about that!]. They talked about marriage therapy as a last-ditch effort to avoid divorce. She desperately wanted him back.
“Bruce returned two days later, but the strife is far from over,” The Enquirer‘s source continues. “They’re barely speaking to each other. Bruce told her that ambition is in her blood like a disease.”
The Enquirer‘s source certainly has a flare for the dramatic with that “disease” line.
This isn’t the first time Bruce has reportedly been upset about Kris thrusting Kendall and Kylie into the spotlight while they’re too young, so this is obviously an ongoing problem for them. But Kris is probably never going to stop pimping out her children. And she also probably doesn’t see anything wrong with what she’s doing (does anyone really believe that she was sincere when “she sobbed that she was sorry for everything”?), so therapy probably wouldn’t work for these two. Kris could very well consider divorce a good business decisionÂ—she won’t have to deal with Bruce anymore, and she’ll also get to change her surname back to Kardashian like she’s been talking about forever. So who knows how much longer these two will last.
What do you think? Is Kris Jenner exploiting Kendall and Kylie? Does Bruce Jenner have a right to be upset? Sound off in the comments!
