UPDATE: Apparently we should not be fooled by a married couple holding hands, and wearing wedding rings! Kardashian family “sources” told TMZ Kris and Bruce Jenner did not rekindle their relationship. They are still close, but they’re leading separate lives — he’s living alone in Malibu and she’s taping more shows in Calabasas.
The source said Bruce’s comment at LAX, that they never separated, wasn’t quite the truth. The rings they’ve both been wearing are supposedly considered “friendship rings.” So they still support each other, but it’s not meant to be taken as a sign that their marriage is back on track. Not that this group ever really does things in a traditional fashion.
Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner and her husband Bruce Jenner haven't exactly been unfriendly since announcing their separation back in October — but they haven't exactly been affectionate, either. There’s been nothing even close to the former couple's super cuddly past!
So consider our interest piqued: Kris was spotted holding hands with Bruce at the LAX airport while returning from a family trip to Thailand. Not only that, but they're smiling, with Kris flashing a big ol' grin straight at the camera. Could they be reconciling?
Of course, Kris and Bruce's separation didn't seem to be based on any sort of conflict. Kris even said she'd been enjoying being besties with Bruce since the separation. “We're great. He's great and I'm great and we're such good friends … Sometimes people are just better apart,” she told People. “We don't bicker as much. We were starting to sound like some old sitcom from the '50s. I listened to myself and didn't like me. Everyone is happier."
The pair had even been celebrating holidays together as a family and vacationing and filming Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Still, if they'd been getting physically close since this unabashed hand-holding, they'd been doing it in secret!
Friends can totally hold hands and show affection, but it gets tricky with friends you were recently married to… for 22 years.
What do you think? Are Kris and Bruce reconciling, or are they just becoming closer friends? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
