Divorce for Mom on Princes of Malibu

The cause of the split "will remain personal and private," said the 55-year-old Thompson, a former Miss Tennessee who was previously married to Olympic gold medalist Bruce Jenner. In a statement, she added, "It is important to remember that real life is not to be confused with art or entertainment."
The Malibu-based FOX show tracks Thompson's 21-year-old and 23-year-old sons Brody and Brandon Jenner as they frequently clash with their Grammy-winning stepdad.
The couple's 22-acre Malibu estate, featured prominently in the show, has been sold and the profits will be divided equally, according to papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on July 11.
