After months of speculation, Bruce and Kris Jenner have confirmed they have split up after more than two decades of marriage.

In a statement to E! News, the Jenners stated that it is true they are living apart and are much happier this way, adding,

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.

Speculation about the condition of the Jenners' marriage has been going on for quite some time, with Kris occassionally staying in another house on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians", though daughter Khloe denied any troubles this summer on The Tonight Show,

They're not having problems, but they still like to live apart, which is definitely different,

Kris' sister Karen gave an interview to In Touch magazine last week where she revealed that Kris and Bruce had already separated, that Kris was already seeking a lawyer for the upcoming divorce, and even accused Kris of regularly flirting with her daughters' husbands.
