Kris and Bruce have begun their divorce. The couple ended their marriage and amicably divided their finances and settled matters like joint custody of Kylie Jenner, 17. In multiple interviews, Kris has stressed that they are friends and always will be.
Brody Jenner repeated the sentiment, telling InTouch “[Bruce] is living his life and is extremely happy. I think that everybody has seen the discord in the relationship for quite some time now. I don’t think it’s a big surprise to anybody that they’re getting a divorce… I think it’s sad for everybody. It’s a bummer, but we’re all adults. We all love each other.”
Kris has reportedly moved on to a string of younger men and Bruce has moved on… with Kris’ friend of 20 years.
Kris’ (former) best friend, Ronda Kamihira, a 51-year-old mother of two, has reportedly been spotted around town with Bruce. Including a date at an Elton John concert on October 4 in Los Angeles. Here’s a photo of Ronda and her kids posted to Instagram a year ago with the caption “@spencerjohnson @maddyjohnsonn parents weekend at USC! #fighton❤️”.
Kris reportedly feels “betrayed” at the new relationship. Kris and Ronda are friends of decades, neighbours, and they’ve spent the holidays together. And their kids grew up together. Here’s a photo from 10 months ago, posted to Instagram with the caption “Pure JOY! Happy Birthday sweet @spencerjohnson ! Fabulous dinner #nobu @maddyjohnsonn and @kendalljenner”.
Recently, however, Jenner sources claimed Ronda was Single White Female-ing Kris right down to a change in hairstyle.

Neither Ronda nor Bruce told Kris about the relationship. The momager learned about the union from the media. Which left her feeling “humiliated” and “played.” Kris has not confronted the new couple, yet, although she feels Bruce hooking up with a family friend is “appalling.” She’s “torn apart and angry.”
An insider reveals, Kris is “extremely upset… It really stings because Ronda never told Kris she started seeing Bruce.”
Incidentally, at the time of posting, Kris Jenner, daughter Kendall Jenner and Kris’ friend Ben Flajnik are following Ronda’s Twitter. Although the account hasn’t been updated regularly since January 2013. She does still post to Instagram.
