and Bruce Jenner confirmed Tuesday
that they have separated after 22 years of marriage.
The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' mom-manager and her husband announced, "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 friends and, as always, our family will remain our number one priority."
They have two children together, aspiring models Kendall, 17, and Kylie, 16, and each have four other kids from previous marriages.
In late April Kris posted a photo on Instagram that she captioned, "Happy Anniversary Bruce!!!! Best 22 years I could ever have imagined...hope the next 22 is even more fabulous...I love you!"
Rumors have been swirling since Bruce began living in a separate rented residence in Malibu in June, right around the time that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West moved into Kris' Calabasas estate with their baby North.
Kris was still in denial earlier this summer when she told reporters while she was filming her pilot talk show, "We love each other and just laugh about it. These kind of stories have been circulating for the last couple of years."
Khloe Kardashian told Jay Leno in June, "They're not having problems, but they like to live apart, which is definitely different."
