Kris and Bruce Jenner are officially separated, but have put on an amicable front, are not dating other people and Kris even referred to her estranged husband as her “best friend.” So what’s the deal? Kris is pretty flashy when it comes to liking the finer things in life and this could all be a ploy to make sure the reality stars work out an agreeable financial agreement in the event of a future divorce.

They could be “trying to work on an amicable agreement,” Eisman said, but said it was just a speculation. “Nobody knows what’s going on there.”
