Kris and Bruce Jenner: The Cost of a Hollywood Divorce

Getty ImagesIf you’re still reeling from the shock of Kris and Bruce Jenner’s separation, you may want to sit for this little nugget: A divorce could cost the reality show couple $125 million dollars, according to a report published Tuesday on RadarOnline.

After years of being plagued by cheating and divorce rumors, Kris, 57, and Bruce, 63, announced their separation to E! News on Tuesday. "We are living separately and we are much happier this way," the pair said in a joint statement. "But we will always have much love and respect for each other. Even though we are separated, we will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our number one priority." Kris also confirmed to Us magazine that the couple had kept their split a secret for the past year. "We ended a marriage, but that's not the end of our friendship," she told the magazine.

But if the couple heads to divorce court, they may not stay so chummy. According to RadarOnline, Kris and Bruce never bothered to sign a prenuptial agreement during their 22-year marriage.

"Although there's no way to know how much the Jenners are worth, California law entitles any married couple without a prenuptial agreement to equally split all finances earned during the course of their marriage," Raoul Felder, a.ka., the "Duke of Divorce," whose client list includes former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Robin Givens, and David Gest (Liza Minnelli's ex), among others, tells Yahoo Shine. "That means both Kris and Bruce could walk away with $60 million dollars." What's more, as Kim's former manager, Kris reaped profits from her daughter's 2007 sex tape — so Bruce is entitled to that income, as well.

For starters, Kris is the president of Jenner Communications, and is the creator, executive producer, and one of the stars of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” (and its assorted spin-offs: “Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami,” “Kourtney and Kim Take New York,” and the short-lived “Khloe and Lamar”). And in 2012, the family signed a three-year deal with E! to continue the family antics. Although E! didn’t disclose the terms of the deal, TMZ reported that the KUWTK deal was $40 million dollars — making it the wealthiest agreement in reality television history.

Kris also owns a QVC collection called the K-Dash line and the Kardashian Collection for Sears, along with the family's other product lines and endorsement deals which include fragrances, teeth whiteners, beauty and self-tanning products, jewelery, and more.

And since Kris manages her daughters' careers, all that self-promotion factors into the cost of divorce. Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney get paid to hawk various products on social media (Kim is reportedly paid anywhere from $10,000 to $25,000 per sponsored tweet). And the sisters reportedly charge a fee to appear on tabloid magazine covers and for personal appearances — MTV estimated that even back in 2010, Kim was raking in $75,000 per meet-and-greet.

Not that Bruce needs Kris's money. At one point, the former track and field Olympian was worth $100 million, which he mainly acquired through endorsement deals and business ventures. "That money wouldn't be fair game because he earned that before the marriage," says Felder. However, things could still get messy. "My understanding is that he’s subjugated himself and his career – his motivational speaking, training and aviation business – to be the stay-at-home dad for the two children they had together," New York divorce lawyer Steven J. Eisman told the New York Daily News. "If he takes the position that he stopped pursuing his career because they had an agreement he was going to watch these kids, that would give him a good claim for alimony and the need to support the lifestyle they enjoyed together."

Despite the news, the couple appears Zen about their relationship. On Tuesday, Bruce told People magazine that he has no future plans to date and that "everything is good" at home. Drama-free reality television brought to you by the Kardashians. Who knew?
