Kris Jenner and husband Bruce Jenner have officially announced their separation after 22 years of marriage.

"We are living separately and we are much happier this way," the pair told E! News in a joint statement released Tuesday evening.

"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 elaborated further in an additional Us Weekly interview published Tuesday evening. 

"We are living apart," the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star told Us. "But there is no animosity. We are united and committed to our family."

A family source also told People, "There's actually no real drama. Bruce moved to Malibu in June and they liked that arrangement better. They just acknowledged they are separated."

Rumors Kris and Bruce have been on the outs have circulated for the last several years, but Kris had always publicly denied they were divorcing. Late last year, she had insisted she and Bruce were at the point were they "just laughed" the claims.

"These kind of stories have been circulating for the last couple of years," she told E! News at the time. "We're absolutely not filing for divorce. Everything is great. We feel very blessed as a family. If we had to chase down and comment on every rumor, we'd be working overtime."

Then, in April of this year, she again shot down a similar report in which Bruce was allegedly planning to secretly file divorce papers.  

"I love him," Kris previously wrote on her official website. "We are so lucky that we get to have so much fun together and with our kids. I also love that Bruce and I get to create so many amazing memories not just for ourselves, but also for our kids and grandkids. We are truly blessed."

Kris, 57, and Bruce, 63, wed in April 1991, which was only a month after Kris got divorced from the late Robert Kardashian. They have two daughters together -- Kendall Jenner, 17, and Kylie Jenner, 16.

Bruce, who was previously married to Linda Thompson and Chrystie Crownover, has also been a stepdad to Kris' three girls whom she had with Kardashian: Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Khloe Kardashian, as well as son Rob Kardashian.
