Just days after Kris and Bruce Jenner confirmed that they have gone their separate ways, reports have emerged that the reality show matriarch has already moved on to another man -- former “Bachelor” star Ben Flajnik.
InTouch magazine reported that Jenner, 57, has been spending a lot of time with Flajnik, 31, and last month, Jenner tweeted a photograph of herself with Flajnik and television personality Jonathan Cheban vacationing in Sonoma.
“She has a crush [on Ben]. They’ve been spending a lot of time together,” the source said, adding: “She and Bruce are separated, so now they’re allowed to see other people. And she’s in full-on dating mode.”
Flajnik had also appeared on Jenner’s talk show “Kris” along with “Bachelor” host Chris Harrison.
Quashing these rumors, Jenner told TMZ on Wednesday that "there hasn't been a thought or a twinkle" about dating anyone, and her husband of 22 years, Bruce, has also ruled out the possibility of him entering the dating arena.
“No! We're not going there. I have my family, I have my kids. All my time is filled,” he told People, adding: “Kris is happy, I'm happy. Nobody is filing for divorce. Kris has her own place and I have my own place. There's no animosity. Everything is good.”
On Tuesday, the couple released a statement saying that they are living separately, confirming rumors that have been swirling around for months indicating that the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” stars have ended their marriage.
For many, the news of the separation did not come as a surprise, as the couple had been bickering on their reality show for more than a year.
“It's been coming for a while," a source told E!Online. "Kris is in a good place about it, she accepted it and is very focused on other aspects of her life. Obviously it is very sad for everyone, but it's no surprise and everyone has had time to adapt to this new reality."
