It is another dark day for the Kardashian-Jenner Clan, as Bruce and Kris Jenner have both filed for divorce. The end of their twenty-two year long marriage comes after eleven months of separation. Kris filed first on Monday citing “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split. Hours ago, Bruce filed nearly identical divorce papers with the same reason. The demise of their marriage is not a surprise to most people. For years now, the issues plaguing the couple have been well documented via E! Network’s hit reality show, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians (KUWTK).” On the show it seems Bruce is feeling powerless and unappreciated, while Kris is more concerned with managing her daughters’ empire and living the high life.
Kris and Bruce have two daughters together, Kendall and Kylie, and a total of eight children from their previous marriages. All of them are considerably successful and famous in their own right, but have been surprisingly quiet about their parents’ divorce. However on KUWTK, both Kendall and Kylie have become visibly upset about the dissolution of their parents’ marriage. “I don’t want to live like I have divorced parents!’ Kendall sobbed in the ninth season premiere.Their elder siblings have been supportive, having already experienced divorce. Although no members of The Kardashian-Jenner Clan have come forward with an official statement. Kylie, however took to Instagram to post a quote from Miami-based writer, R.M. Drake as the caption: “I discovered that our disconnect was never because of the insecurities we felt, but rather the emptiness we created when we failed to make sense of ourselves…”
The demise of any relationship is hard. When you add a few million spectators it can be all the more excruciating. Kris and Bruce have been in the public eye for decades based on their individual accomplishments and who they were married to. Perhaps the glitz, glamour, and the unyielding eye of reality teelvision proved to be too much for the couple. Happily ever after is truly just for fairy tales, but let us just hope that the former celebrity couple can still co-parent, and co-grandparent peacefully. They are still family after all. At the end of the day that is all that matters.
