While Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are celebrating the birth of their daughter North, the divorce drama between Kim’s mom and Bruce is playing out right in front of them, and Radar has all the details.
Bruce is refusing to give up his Malibu beach house rental — even after Kris ordered him to return to the family residence in Calabassas. Kris is deeply upset by Bruce moving out and doing her best to publicly cover up what’s really going on, a family source told Radar.
As Radar first reported,Bruce moved into the beach house full-time after step-daughter, Kim, her baby daddy, Kanye, and newborn North West, moved into the family mansion after Kim gave birth.
Momager Kris Jenner, about to launch her daytime talk show, now has been forced to go into damage control mode after our story was published on Thursday.
“Kris called Bruce on Thursday morning, and ordered him to give up the Malibu beach house, which he is now refusing to do,” the family source told Radar. “Kris doesn’t want him back in the house because she misses him, but to save face!
“It doesn’t look good to advertisers of her daytime talk show that Bruce isn’t living under the same roof. Kris goes to great lengths to say their reality brood is America’s first family, and that image just doesn’t fly if your husband is living less than 15 miles away in a different house!
“To say Bruce is enjoying living on his own without Kris’ constant nagging about his friends, and messiness, is an understatement!.”
The Olympic gold medalist, “decided to ditch the family home because he was constantly being told to be quiet because of baby Nori,” an insider previously told us. “Bruce was unable to have his friends over to fly their remote controlled helicopters in the backyard because of concerns of noise.”
The Kardashian clan was also concerned one his pals might try and snap a photo of North and sell it to the media!
A family insider told Radar: “The entire household has been turned upside down because Kim and Nori have moved in. Bruce has been run out of the house! Kris didn’t encourage him to stay either.”
During an appearance on Access Hollywood Live on Thursday, Kris was doing her best to spin the news that Bruce was no longer living with her.
“We got a place out at the beach for him to get away,” Kris said. “It does get a little congested in that house.’
Our source scoffs at Kris’ claim that the house is to crowded and notes, “it’s a 10,000 sq ft house! How crowded can it be with all of that room? Even with three additional people living there, space isn’t an issue. What happily married couple has one spouse renting another house so close by?”
And contrary to reports — and statements — “Bruce doesn’t come home at night, why would he want to? He misses daughters, Kendall and Kylie, but they have lives of their own now, and are driving,” the source said.
