At the time, the National ENQUIRER claimed the momager was even meeting up with the tall, dark and handsome former soccer star behind Bruce's back.

By December, a family insider confided to "Kris and Bruce are all but over. They have grown apart and their relationship is all about business these days rather than love and romance."

Come February, the reality television couple's marriage  was "drama-packed," we reported.
