Kris Jenner probably should have taken a cue from Kanye West‘s infamous “Gold Digger” lyric and gotten herself a prenup, as she and Bruce Jenner are now potentially facing a battle over their $125 million fortune. Bruce, 64, is legally entitled to a major chunk of the Kardashian empire’s earnings, and RadarOnline.com is reporting that the Jenners’ potential divorce could prove to be one of the priciest in Hollywood history.
“This is going to be a very bitter pill for Kris to swallow because when they divorce is finalized, she’ll have to split half the family fortune with Bruce,” a source with knowledge of the situation revealed to Radar.
When Kris and Bruce first married in 1991, Bruce was bringing home the bacon, lavishing Kris with the fancy lifestyle she wanted. Since then — more specifically, since the launch of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, as well as the family’s subsequent products and endorsements — Kris has become the wealthier half of the couple.
Ironically, the site notes, Kris forced daughters Kim and Khloe Kardashian to get prenups before marrying Kris Humphries and Lamar Odom, respectively. (And we both know how well those marriages ended up!)
Though Kris says she and Bruce have no plans to divorce right now, not having a prenup will make the process infinitely more difficult, should they decide to move forward.
Though Bruce and Kris have been separated for months, news of their separation wasn’t officially confirmed until Oct. 9, when they told E! News, “We are living separately and we are much happier this way.”
Expanding on that sentiment, Kris tells Us Weekly:
We ended a marriage, but that’s not the end of our friendship. There is no animosity. We are united and committed to our family. I will always love him, but we are longer a couple in that way.
It sounds like Bruce and Kris are still putting their family first — whether they’re married or not!
