Bruce Jenner

Sons THRILLED With Separation

Bruce Jenner
's 2 boys blame Kris Jenner for robbing them of their father and they are more than happy over the split ... sources connected to the family tell TMZ.

Brody and Brandon Jenner became estranged from their dad when he married Kris in 1991.  They were raised by their mom, Linda Thompson and David Foster, who married Linda after she divorced Bruce.  We're told the boys were devastated, and believed their real dad abandoned them.

What's more ... our sources say Brody and Brandon believe Kris is the one who convinced Bruce to jettison them, in favor of his new family.  They have bitter feelings toward Kris, which endure even today.

We're told Brody and Brandon know ... Bruce didn't pay child support for 10 years, and after that only $1,500 a month.  Again, they believe Kris was pulling the strings.

So now Bruce is living in Malibu, close to Brody and Brandon, and they are reconnecting with Bruce in what we're told is "an adult relationship." 

Here's what no one will say out loud --  Bruce got sick of being alienated from his children, and one benefit of the separation is to rebuild and make good.

One final thing ... you may wonder why Brody and Brandon have appeared on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," a show driven by Kris.  We're told the boys have done everything they could to get close to their dad, and they felt if the show filled that bill ... so be it.

The whole show is so phony. They already filmed their Christmas episode a few weeks ago (kim posted photos). I wish this show would just get cancelled.

She will definitely change her last name back to Kardashian even though it's her ex-husbands name she wanted to do that years ago.

Umm this is by far no excuse but did you maybe consider Bruce didn't pay child support for those 10yrs because Linda didn't need him too? She was married to one of the most riches music producers and even she was banking it as a song writer alongside her then husband. I find it hard to believe a celebrity of Bruce Jenner caliber (back in the day at least) can "get away" with skipping on child support. They must've had an agreement and I highly doubt Brody and Brandon we're ever struggling growing up in Malibu. Move it along people. No sad story here.

Not a fan of Pimp Mama, and I think she is capable of anything, but if Bruce wasn't a good father when his children were growing up, that's on him. It was his responsibility to man up and be a good father.

Why did Kris decide to announce her separation from Bruce when the Associated Press said the Jenner's have been separated for a year? I think it is sad Kris scripted Kylie to pursue the need for a "summer" rental. In the putting green episode, Kris is very cold when she asked Bruce, "Why are your kids her?" Why was Bruce and Rob missing from Kim's shower? The Jenner separation was not a surprise, but the timing of the announcement makes you go hmmm.

I don't believe this story. Kris Jenner is not to blame for Bruce not having a relationship with his boys. Bruce is the only one to blame. I didn't know he never paid child support. Wow! Quit blaming Kris! He was a dead beat dad.

I was with them until the last paragraph. The only reason they'd stoop to doing a reality show is to get close to their dad? Riiiight, because I recall they also had a reality show called "The Princes of Malibu" about life with their mom and step-dad. I also recall Brody having a long lasting stint on a little show called "The Hills". The fame whore gene runs through this family from top to bottom.

THAT'S RIGHT, BLAME THE WOMAN:
Poor Bruce, FORMALLY handsome, multi-medal Olympian, had women at his beck and call--but THAT MEAN WOMAN forced him to abandon his family and not pay child support. What's is POS supposed to do. ?
.
He's a puck ass gold-digger, he thought, "if I'll live off of her money, Her husband was famous--that'll keep me in the limelight." Years passed, and about 286 plastic surgeries later he finally discovered what everyone else knew---he was only getting uglier and uglier, a joke plus his plan had backfired.
.
Plan "C"
Exploit their divorce and take the money and run. Now that the Kardashian franchise has ran it course leaving him kicked to the curb, it's time to make nice with his sons. Who knows, maybe they can exploit their fake reconciliation and parlay that into a "reality" show. Lower class and no class, feebleminded Americans will eat that sh1it up.

Bruce is the only one responsible for not being around as a father. As for the show, seems to me Brandon used it to promote his music...good on him.

He waited way too long to get away from that witch.
She's all about promoting her W H O R E S and she is exactly like them herself. She's nothing more than a pimp!
