Bruce Jenner / Jason Trawick, Kris Jenner (FameFlynet/X17online.com)
Although Kris and Bruce Jenner didn't officially announce their separation until this week, the estranged couple, married 22 years, have been living apart for a while now. So it wouldn't be that shocking if either party has dipped back into the dating pool, right?
In just two days, the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" matriarch has already been linked to Britney Spears's ex-fiancé, Jason Trawick, and former "Bachelor" singleton Ben Flajnik.
On Sunday, Kris, 57, and Trawick, 42, were photographed grabbing dinner together in Calabasas, California. A few tabloids were quick to jump all over the outing, going so far as to claim the two have been exchanging "flirty text messages" since. Although Kris was certainly beaming ear to ear as she walked back to her car with Trawick, sources close to the family tell omg! that the meal wasn't romantic.
"It was work related," one insider explained. "Just business."
All right … so one down, one to go.
Two weeks ago Kris uploaded a photo on Instagram alongside Bachelor Ben (remember … the guy who got engaged to kooky Courtney Robertson?):
In Touch reported Kris "put the moves" on the 31-year-old winery owner and that they have been "spending a lot of time together."
Ben spoke out about the claims earlier today.
"I did Kris's talk show a few months back, brought my wines on the show. Of course, I offered her a visit to the winery whenever she had a chance," he told Us Weekly while denying reports. "That's how we met. Recently, she ended up contacting me about a month ago or so and asked me if they could film an episode of 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' at the winery. I, of course, obliged."
Kris and Ben also hung out together at Joe Francis's home in Mexico. "I'm kind of caught in a crossfire," he joked.
Interestingly enough, the Kardashian family matriarch has revealed in an interview for New You magazine that she still thinks about her relationship with her late ex-husband and father of four of her children, Robert Kardashian.
"The one regret, if I had to do it over, would be divorcing Robert Kardashian," Jenner says of the man she was married to from 1978 to 1991. "But then there wouldn't have been Kendall and Kylie, so that's the way I look at it."
As for, Bruce Jenner, 63, the former Olympian told People he is not planning to venture out into the dating scene.
"We're not going there," he said with a laugh. "I have my family, I have my kids. All my time is filled."
Sources tell omg! that Bruce is filling his time by reconnecting with sons Brody, Burt, and Brandon. Their somewhat strained relationship has been playing out on the current season of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," where Brody even blamed Kris for being the reason why Bruce was never around.
Kris spoke to People on Thursday and explained she and Bruce still have a "best friend" relationship.
"We definitely get along as a family and with the kids; we're so connected in that way. We love each other," she says. "It's a very wonderful dynamic. It's just not something that's real negative and nasty ... I love really hard, and the people that I have in my life that I love will always be in my life forever. It's ultimately like one big happy family."
While Bruce and Kris are going through what seems like the happiest separation ever, their kids have taken to Twitter to post some not so cryptic responses about their feelings.
Kourtney Kardashian uploaded a picture quote on Instagram on Wednesday: "Here's to strong women. May we know them, may we be them, may we raise them."
Kylie Jenner tweeted:
If Kris and Bruce are telling the truth, then it looks like they've still got love to the end.
