“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,” their statement concluded.

Rumors have circulated that the couple were separating for months.

During an appearance on Access Hollywood Live in June, Kris hinted her marriage to Bruce was fine, but she did admit the former Olympian had been spending time at their second home.

“We got a place out at the beach for him to get away a little bit because it does get a little congested in my house. [After] 23 years, it’s amazing to have a little bit of space. So it’s kind of fun. He sleeps at home,” she said at the time.

A rep for the pair did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Access Hollywood.
