Bruce Jenner’s new girlfriend is Kris’s former friend, Kris is ‘devastated’

127155PCN_Bruce46

Earlier this month, Bruce Jenner stepped out in LA, looking easy, breeezy, beautiful. His blowout looked flawless, the lip injections were plumped, his nose job and laryngeal shave had healed and maybe there was some makeup involved. Just some lip gloss, maybe a little blush. Why did Bruce want to look so gorgeous? He had a date! He attended the Elton John concert with his son, his son’s wife and a mystery brunette woman. As it turns out, the brunette (you can see her photo at the bottom of the post) is Bruce’s new girlfriend and Kris Jenner’s former friend.

Well, that was quick! While Bruce and Kris Jenner announced their separation almost a year ago and both filed for divorce just last month, officially ending their 22-year marriage, Kris, 58, admitted the thought of dating again was “daunting” to her.

However, a source reveals to PEOPLE exclusively that Bruce, 64, has already begun a new romance – and it’s with Kris’s longtime friend and former assistant, Ronda Kamihira.

“Kris is devastated,” says the source. “This was her former assistant and best friend of 20 years.”

The source adds that the Jenners’ daughters, “Kendall and Kylie grew up with her two kids and have been their best friends.”

After such an amicable split with the former Olympian, Kris “is just shocked” by the news. “She’s so sad and completely heartbroken,” the source adds.

Bruce first publicly stepped out with Kamihira in L.A. at an Elton John concert on Oct. 4, where he also sported longer locks. Just months earlier, Kamihira joined her girlfriend Kris for a getaway to Kardashian family friend Joe Francis’s Punta Mita compound. Bruce, Kris and Kamihira were not immediately able to be reached for comment.

Some people think this is just another stupid plotline on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Those people are probably right. But I do think Bruce is “over” all of this, especially the reality shows and Kris specifically. But if he’s so “over” Kris, why is he dating one of her close friends? That’s more of a move designed to get at your ex than some kind of “I’m moving on” new relationship.

FYI: Kris did appear on the Today Show yesterday and she was asked about Bruce’s girlfriend. Kris said “I just want him to be happy, I don’t care who he goes out with. And I don’t know who he is dating, he doesn’t check in with me and give me a play by play, but it’s his life and you just want the guy to be happy.” Sounds like someone is saving the good stuff for the reality show.

    Yeah… What I don’t understand is why Kris manufactured and distributed that story. Why would she want us to believe that her ex who is transitioning and her best friend are an item? What’s in it for her?

    • Abbott says:

      What’s in it for Kris?
      1. $
      2. $$
      3. the flash of cameras that power the cold, dead heart of hers
      4. $$$$

      • QQ says:

        Basically what Abbot says..plus some semblance of Sympathy even though that’s the korner the kardassholes have painted themselves in where we dont believe them, need more people, permanently side eye them and pretty much anything they say is met with a brow raised sponsored by botox and theexpression “Yeah, Right”

      • JudyK says:

        Kris’s nauseatingly sweet, sugary, manufactured, pre-arranged, scripted answers on ET last night in response to questions about the so-called friend and Bruce (and whether Bruce was transitioning) left me wanting to slap her.

        +1 to everything Abbott said.

  2. BeckyR says:

    I find Bruce’s look to be ….. sad. The man has ruined himself.

  3. Splinter says:

    Like anyone believes it. Like anyone cares.

  4. Jules says:

    Gak………..what fresh hell is that photo?

  5. NewWester says:

    What on earth has Bruce done to his face?!!! That is just sad

  6. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I would say that anyone would be an improvement over Kris, but this woman is supposedly close friends with her, so…

    • Christin says:

      Maybe she was paid to be her friend (as an assistant who was around the family). It makes a better sympathy narrative to claim they are good friends.

  7. Bruce's bruce says:

    Im confused.

  8. Ag says:

    meh. just another manufactured story by the karda$$ians.

  9. Abbicci says:

    I don’t mind the shilling and the soulless promotion but I have to draw the line at being friends with Joe Francis.

    How can any decent human being be friends with Joe Francis?

    • springingforward says:

      Well, they would have to be 1. Decent and 2. Human beings; the Kardashians fail on both counts……

  10. Rhiley says:

    That hair looks like some rare animal hide. It would be fun if he scored a contract with Pantene.

  11. Miffy says:

    Spoiler alert: Bruce isn’t just trying to get back at Kris by dating her friend. He’s going to hit her where it hurts. He’s going to start his OWN Keeping Up With The Kardashians knock off show featuring himself, this Ronda chick and a reluctant Kylie Jenner as three high profile sisters getting up to slutty highjinks. Brace yourselves for slapping fights over who gets to be Kim and guest appearances by Brody Jenner as the “momager”

  12. Kcarp says:

    I don’t believe Kris has a friend. I don’t think you can’t count Satan as a friend he would be more of a co worker.

  13. snowflake says:

    wow, so because some family friend goes out with bruce, now they’re dating?! I guess Bruce is dating Leah, too, she’s in proximity to him. so silly. i don’t think they’re dating. I dont think bruce is transitioning either. and i don’t think khloe’s dad is the hairstylist, or lionel richie. lol, all the rumors

  14. Zip says:

    What makes some of you think Bruce is transitioning?

    • FingerBinger says:

      To start with shaving his larynx. That’s a procedure usually done in gender transitioning. Growing his hair long and the repeated nose jobs. These are obvious attempts to feminize his features.

      • Addie says:

        He’s always had long hair on and off. Google his Olympic days. Michael Douglas gets lots of plastic surgery but no one accuses him of transitioning.

  15. Cheryl says:

    She has a friend? Is that the headline?

  16. swack says:

    I doubt that Kris is devastated. Wasn’t she seen, not too long after they separated, frollicking with the guy from The Bachelor/Bachelorette (don’t know which one), Ben Flavik (sp?), in Mexico? More PR bs.

  17. Anna says:

    Man, he is starting to look like Steven Tyler.

  18. Yeah says:

    Rob should become a plastic surgeon so he can make himself useful to this family!

    • whatsmyname? says:

      Yeesss they could do a special for their show where every member of the family gets a new(er) face designed by Rob and if they’re lucky it will be as good as his socks designs.

  19. Pandy says:

    IF Kris is devastated (highly doubtful), it’s only because she hasn’t come out with someone first. I agree with her “daunting” quote though. What 20-something rapper is going to date her? Isn’t that the Kardashian dating pool?

  20. Dawn says:

    I don’t believe for a moment that Kris Jenner has enough love in her body to give a rat’s ass who Bruce decides to date. She is an ice queen in my book and only cares about two things, her money and getting some on the side. And really is he dating this woman or are they simply friends going out to dinner? Only the Kardashian spin crew knows for sure! As for the long hair Bruce is just going back to his youth when long hair was in. It is not such a big deal to me. Hopefully he has enough money in the bank to do nothing but golf all day and go out with interesting people at night.

  21. anne_000 says:

    I don’t think Kris feels that way about Bruce that she’s hurt by this. She’s into open relationships and she’s wrung Bruce dry. There’s nothing left of him that she wants.

  22. jwoolman says:

    They were going to a concert, it’s not a date date unless they say so. Men and women can be friends without being lovers (gasp!). So without other evidence, we don’t know. Honestly, if he brought a male friend you all would be calling him gay…. But I think Bruce is actually looking more like himself these days. Maybe he’s less stressed without Demon Wife.

  23. sooz says:

    dude really does look like a lady.
