Kris Jenner has officially filed for divorce from Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner, ending their 23-year marriage.
The documents were filed Monday, September 22 in the L.A. Superior Courthouse, citing irreconcilable differences. The filing came 11 months after the pair announced their separation exclusively to US Weekly.
The couple’s relationship and recent troubles have been documented on popular reality show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” The program focuses on Kris’ daughters from a previous marriage, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian.
Kris and Bruce, 64, were married in 1991 and are parents to daughters Kendall, 18, and Kylie, 17. According to the L.A. courthouse, Kylie was the only child listed on the documents.
As reported by People Magazine, Kris has requested physical and legal custody of Kylie. Additionally, she has asked to keep all her jewelry and any assets obtained after their separation. Kris requested all other assets be divided at a future time.
While the couple had officially announced their separation last October, court papers list their separation date as June 2013.
“We will always be the best of friends, because that’s the dynamic of our relationship,” Kris told People, October 2013. “We definitely get along as a family and with the kids; we’re so connected in that way. We love each other.”
Months after revealing their split, Bruce and Kris were still seen at events together. Throughout the separation, Bruce still made appearances on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
Kris couldn’t specify what lead to the eventual divorce.
“I don’t think it was the pace of life. We’ve always gone 150 miles per hour, and Bruce has more energy than anybody,” she said. “I just think it has evolved. I really can’t put my finger on it. We’re just happier now.”
Kris filed the documents “in propria persona,” meaning without legal representation.
