Bruce Jenner has filed his response to wife Kris Jenner’s divorce petition.

The Olympic gold medalist filed the papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Monday, reiterating the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” matriarch’s petition to dissolve their marriage, which she filed on Monday.



2:50 p.m.: A previous version of this post said that Bruce Jenner filed his response on Tuesday. He filed on Monday.



Bruce Jenner, 64, full name William Bruce Jenner, also cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split and asked for joint physical and legal custody of their youngest daughter, Kylie Jenner, 17, according to court documents obtained by the Los Angeles Times. Kylie turns 18 next August.

The couple has another daughter together, model Kendall Jenner, who turned 18 last November.

The reality-TV couple publicized their separation last October after 22 years of marriage but listed their date of separation as June 1, 2013. They also said that that they had no plans to divorce despite living apart, with Kris staying in the family’s Hidden Hills home and Bruce renting a beach pad in Malibu -- decisions that played out on their popular E! reality series.

Neither petitioner asked for spousal support. The couple will divvy up their property on their own terms, TMZ reported, saying they had no prenuptial agreement, which means they legally shared everything up until their date of separation.

Their shared wealth was estimated at $60 million, TMZ said, which the couple divided up easily and amicably by using business managers rather than lawyers.

The respective divorce petitions were also filed without lawyers.

The so-called Kardashian momager, 58, will keep the couple’s Hidden Hills estate, which is prominently featured on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” and Bruce Jenner will keep his membership to Sherwood Country Club, the site said.


Bruce and Kris wed on April 21, 1991, just one month after she finalized her divorce from her first husband, Robert Kardashian, the late O.J. Simpson defense lawyer who is the father of her four famous elder children: Kourtney Kardashian, 35; Kim Kardashian West, 33; Khloe Kardashian, 30; and Rob Kardashian, 27.

The decathlete was twice wed before marrying Kris and has four children from his previous relationships.
