Just days after confirming her separation from husband of 22 years, Bruce Jenner, Kris Jenner is reportedly off the market and has been seeing former ‘Bachelor’ star, Ben Flajnik.
A source exclusively told InTouch Weekly that the 57-year-old “momager” and head of the ‘Kardashian Empire,’ is happily keeping company with the rich, younger man.
“She has a crush [on Ben],” a source tells the new issue of In Touch, on newsstands now. He’s almost half her age, but that hasn’t stopped the Kardashian matriarch.
“They’ve been spending a lot of time together,” says the source. Kris, 57, even posted a photo (with the hashtag #livinglifeee) of her and Ben, 31, at his vineyard in Sonoma, Calif., on Sept. 28. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that he’s wealthy and famous. “She and Bruce are separated, so now they’re allowed to see other people — and she’s in full-on dating mode.”
Ben, who was also a contestant on season 16 of “The Bachelor,” got engaged to Bachelorette runner up, Courtney Robertson, and after a year of dating — thanks to the show — they called it quits in October 2012.
The former reality star couple released a joint statement saying:
“After meeting over a year ago, we have decided to end our romantic relationship. The ups and downs weighed heavily on us both and ultimately we started to grow apart because of the distance, time apart, and our need to focus on our respective careers.”
And I guess that’s why Bruce is currently asking for spousal support from his estranged wife.
