In a joint statement to E, they said
"We are living separately and we are much happier this way. 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."We ended a marriage, but that's not the end of our friendship. I will always love him, but we are no longer a couple in that way."However, it doesn't come as a surprise to many..especially those who have been watching the Keeping Up with the Kardashians...Bruce has always felt sidelined.They are also said to have separated one year ago but Kris kept it out of the media to protect ratings for the show.
These are some factors which allegedly caused the breakup
Kris was caught having a secret meeting with her former flame, who she was romantically involved with while married to Robert Kardashian.
In an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians that aired in July 2012, Kris confessed to daughter Kim that Bruce ‘never looks that happy with me’.Anyone who has watched the family's television show will recall episodes in which Bruce appeared to be sidelined and overlooked when it came to important family matters.
She later was seen meeting up with Todd and afterwards, confessed to her friends: ‘You don't know whether to hang on anymore, maybe there is another chapter for me.’
Kris detailed the affair the pair had in her autobiography but gave the man in question the alias ‘Ryan’, however Todd then came forward to reveal his identity
In May last year, when acting as a co-host on The View, Bruce admitted that he didn't know about the Kardashian family's $40 million deal to film three more years of the show and had heard about it on the news.
'Honestly, a couple days ago I was watching the news and then this ticker comes across the screen saying, 'Kardashians sign a new deal' and I was like, 'We did?'As a world famous sportsman and successful businessman, the shift in power and status may have contributed to their demise.
He went on to paint a picture of his relationship with his wife: 'And then later that day I get yelled at because I spent $300 on a credit card!'
It was revealed in June that Bruce, who is step-father to Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Rob Kardashian, spends $14,500 a month renting a Malibu property miles away from the family home in CalabasasJust last week, Kris's sister Karen Houghton told In Touch magazine that the infamous 'momanger' pushes her children to be stars and 'money is her whole world.
Headstrong Kris's zeal to promote Kendall, 17, and Kylie's, 16, careers has also been a bone of contention, and they have publicly argued about whether their teenage daughters should drop out of school.
