Kris and Bruce Jenner have separated.

The pair who were married for 22 years, have daughters Kendall, 17, and Kylie,16, together and are ''much happier'' now that they are not living with one another.

The Kardashian matriarch is located at their Calabasas, California, mansion while Bruce has his own beach house a short drive away in Malibu.

In a statement issued on Tuesday (08.10.13), they said: ''We are living separately and we are much happier this way.''

Kris and Bruce insist that they ended on good terms and they will always care for one another.

They added: ''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.

''We ended a marriage, but that's not the end of our friendship. I will always love him, but we are no longer a couple in that way. We are happier this way.''

Kris has four children from her previous marriage to Robert Kardashian, including daughters 34-year-old Kourtney, 32-year-old Kim, 29-year-old Khloe, and 26-year-old son Rob. While Bruce also has four kids, two from his first marriage to Chrystie Crownover, Casey and Burt, and sons Brody, 30, and Brandon, 32, from his second marriage to Linda Thompson.
