The Kardashian’s step-brother Brandon Jenner has split from his long-time love, Leah Jenner after 14 years together.
The couple, who met in high school and married in 2012, shared the news via a statement on Instagram.
“Hi everybody, it is with love in our hearts that we feel it’s time to share some personal news with you all. After celebrating fourteen beautiful years together, we have lovingly come to the decision to end the romantic aspect of our relationship,” they said. “We are deeply proud of the life we’ve cultivated together and are truly grateful for the bond of friendship we hold and cherish today. It is stronger than ever.”
“Even though we have chosen to separate as a couple, we still love one another very, very much and remain a major part of each other’s lives — as best friends, family and loving parents to our daughter,” they continued. “There has been no lying or cheating or fighting that prompted this change, just an expansion of our individual evolution which has inspired us to support each other in a new way. We are still, very much, a loving family and are bonded by a deep connection that is rooted in love.”
“Here we openly share our truth with you all and, respectfully, we won’t be commenting further so anything that might state the contrary of this message would, undoubtedly, be a fabrication,” they concluded their message. “Thank you for your love and support and big love back to you guys!”
37-year-old Brandon is the son of Caitlyn Jenner and Linda Thompson and is the step-brother of Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob Kardashian and the half-brother of Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Leah is the daughter of Eagles guitarist Don Felder.
The couple, who have appeared on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, are parents to three-year-old daughter, Eva James.
