After 11 months of separation, Kris Jenner has filed for divorce from her husband of 23 years, Olympian Bruce Jenner. The mother of Kim Kardashian filed a petition for divorce in Los Angeles on Monday, September 22, citing irreconcilable differences. Her husband reportedly filed a response to her petition on the following day.
The petition for divorce apparently does not include spousal support but does indicate a request for joint custody of their daughter Kylie, who at age 17 is still considered a minor. After the split became official last week, daughter Kendall Jenner shared an old photo of her parents on Instagram with a heart caption.
It was in October 2013 when Jenner revealed to Us Weekly that she and her husband were living apart. “But there is no animosity. We are united and committed to our family,” she said.
Jenner flew to France on the day she filed for divorce in order to support Kendall at her shows in Paris Fashion Week. The French city was where she and her entire family, including her husband, vacationed earlier this year to attend the wedding of her daughter Kim to rapper Kanye West. Jenner posted a photo of the Eiffel Tower on Instagram with the caption, “Well hello Paris I missed you!!!! #PFW #blessed.”
In a recent interview with Fashion Week Daily, Jenner set the record straight on rumors that Kendall had been bullied by fellow models at New York Fashion Week. “They have been so welcoming, especially at the Tommy Hilfiger show. At all of the shows, all of the girls have been so darling. It’s like a sorority. It’s really amazing and heartwarming the way they’ve welcomed her into their world and treated her like a sister,” she said.
Jenner was seated with her daughter Kim and son-in-law West at the front row of the Balmain show at Paris Fashion Week. They were there to cheer for Kendall, who walked the runway for the designer brand on Thursday.
