Bruce Jenner is ironing out the details of his split after 22 years of marriage to wife Kris, and there might be a whole lot of dollar signs involved down the road. The couple announced this week that they had separated, but are reportedly not rushing to begin divorce. However, the lack of a prenup between them could significantly increase his net worth if and when the pair split their fortune.
Bruce and Kris arrived separately yesterday to attend a meeting in Los Angeles about the terms of their split. They are worth a reported $125 million, but no prenup was made when they got married or added during the marriage. Without a prenup, Bruce is legally entitled to half of their fortune, which would boost his net worth substantially because Kris has been the clear breadwinner over the course of their marriage.
E! shelled out $40 million last year for three additional seasons of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, while Kris has also received 10 percent for brokering massive deals for her daughters, which include the Kardashian Kollection for Sears and Quicktrim fat burners. She also reportedly received a substantial amount of money for the six-week trial run of her talk show last summer. The couple also share multiple assets between them, including a series of luxury cars and a mansion worth several million dollars.
Unfortunately for Kris, she will not be entitled to any of the $100 million that Bruce racked up in the ‘80s, before they got married. The former Olympian had major endorsement deals at one point, including Wheaties cereal and Bruce Jenner Aviation, in addition to being one of the most sought after motivational speakers.
“This is going to be a very bitter pill for Kris to swallow,” a source told Radar Online. “Kris demanded that Kim and Khloe get prenups, but, in a touch of irony, she didn’t get one when she married Bruce.” The source also revealed that Kris will likely make their amicable split unpleasant if her fortune is in jeopardy, claiming: “To say Kris is obsessed with money is an understatement.”
