Kris and Bruce Jenner's marriage is over. The news that the Kardashian sisters' mother and stepfather have separated is something we've been anticipating for a long time -- yet somehow, it came completely out of the blue. Maybe it's because we've been so focused on daughter Khloe Kardashian's crumbling marriage to Lamar Odom? Regardless, the couple of 22 years announced their separation in true Kardashian style: on the cover of Us Weekly.
"We are living apart. But there is no animosity. We are united and committed to our family," Kris told the magazine. "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."
The article reveals that the Jenners have been keeping their separation a secret for an entire year. So all those times they denied that there were marriage troubles, they were lying. Some of those lies were more blatant than others, like that "happy anniversary" message Kris posted on Instagram in April. (""Happy Anniversary Bruce!!!! Best 22 years I could ever have imagined...hope the next 22 is even more fabulous...I love you!")
But Kris and Bruce's marital discord should be no shock to fans of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. They fight dirty -- Kris likes to go behind Bruce's back; he frequently tells her she's stupid -- and they do it on camera. Below, seven of their most ridiculous blow-ups.
1. Kris tells Bruce that she's been secretly seeing her ex-boyfriend behind his back. Then she gets annoyed that he's mad. (July 2012)
2. Kris and Bruce get into a fight because he threw away her inflatable swan. (September 2011)
3. Kris gets mad at Bruce because he wants to take her on a tropical vacation to Bora-Bora. How dare he! (August 2011)
4. Kris refuses to manage the careers of Bruce's children from his previous marriage, because it would be "mixing business with family." Oh, the irony. (June 2012)
5. Kris confiscates Bruce's ATM card when he tells her he wants to buy a new toy helicopter for $500, because she "doesn't want to waste any money." How much did that inflatable swan cost again? (December 2009)
6. Bruce and Kris have an ego clash because Kris wants to change her name from "Jenner" back to "Kardashian," without telling him first. Her reasoning: "It's just about the brand." (June 2011)
7. Bruce "borrows" Kris's office in order to watch YouTube videos. She kicks him out because she wants to work. He then goes to the bathroom to watch TV, and she kicks him out because she's decided to take a bath. These two really do suck at sharing a house. (September 2010)
