A couple weeks ago, a report surfaced claiming that Kris Jenner was "pressuring" oldest daughter Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick to marry in a bid for ratings, money and publicity. Would the momager stage a divorce, too?
According to The National Enquirer (via Radar Online), Kris' beleagured husband, Bruce Jenner, is "secretly consulting" divorce lawyers after reaching "the breaking point over [her] flirting with younger men and raging egomania over the Kardashian clan's wildly successful business empire."
"Bruce feels that Kris treats him like a doormat, and he's had enough," a "source" tells the mag. "She conÂstantly belittles his appearance [writer's note: given all the plastic surgery Kris has had, she has no room to belittle someone else's 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!"
So Bruce has been complaining to his golfing buddies, and he has also been meeting with lawyers to determine how the couple's $155 million fortune and custody of their two underage daughters would be split.
"He hates it when cronies at the country club jokingly call him Bruce Kardashian," an "insider" tells The Enquirer. "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 emÂpire 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."
On the Kardashian-Jenners' reality shows, Bruce and Kris do seem to be at odds frequently. But how much of those "reality" shows is really real, and how much is scripted? Given that they've been busted faking scenes and storylines, how likely is it that Kris and Bruce are actually having marital difficulties? For all the public knows, the couple could be perfectly happy but just creating some drama for the cameras. You would hope that they wouldn't stoop so low as to start divorce proceedings just for ratings and publicity, but considering Kim Kardashian's for-money-not-love wedding to Kris Humphries, you really can't put anything past this family.
What do you think? Are Bruce and Kris Jenner headed for divorce? Is this just a publicity stunt? Sound off in the comments!
