Bruce Jenner: 'Kim Kardashian didn't tell me about divorce'

By
Kim Kardashian's stepfather Bruce Jenner has confessed that he learnt of the socialite's divorce in the media.

Kardashian married basketball star Kris Humphries in a lavish California ceremony on August 21, but filed for divorce just 72 days later.

Although Jenner walked the 31-year-old up the aisle on the day of her wedding, the former Olympic athlete said that he deliberately tried to "stay out" of her marriage from that moment on.

"I have given them advice through out the years, but in this particular case I kept my mouth shut," he told OK. "You don't get involved in love. Just hope for the best.

"Actually, I found out she was getting divorced by hearing about it on the news and stuff. I was like, the last to know. But I could hear telephone conversations in other rooms happening and I knew something was up but I didn't know it was that bad until after."

Jenner said that he was proud of how Kardashian had dealt with her divorce, especially given the scepticism and criticism surrounding the union.

"Kim, she's really such a great, great kid. She's always been that way," he said. "Smart, intelligent, extraordinarily hard-working and I hope nothing but the best for her.

"I just said, 'Just continue. You're going to take a lot of heat for this. Just continue to be the same good person you've always been.' And I think she has and I said, that's about all you can do right now."

Kardashian said this week that she was surprised by the "backlash" over her separation from Humphries.
