The marriage of Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter is over…before it legally began, actually!
TMZ broke the news on Friday that the stars of The Hills: New Beginnings have split after only one year of marriage. It was also revealed that the couple doesn’t technically need to file for divorce, as they were never actually legally married in the first place!
“We’re told Kaitlynn wanted 2 things from Brody — a baby and a legal marriage — but Brody ultimately decided he didn’t want to do either, so they broke up,” the site reports. “She wanted a legal marriage because turns out they never made it official after holding a ceremony last summer in Indonesia.”
The couple— who have been together over six years— got hitched in June 2018. (Brody’s dad Caitlyn Jenner was a no-show to the elaborate ceremony, a topic that was discussed on a recent episode of ‘New Beginnings.’) While they said “I do,” they never made the trek down to obtain a marriage license in the United States; therefore their marriage was never legal.
Multiple sites confirm that Kaitlynn has already left the home they shared. They released the typical “celebrity split” statement (via their rep) on Friday.
“Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter have decided to amicably separate,” the couple’s rep Scott Newman told Us Weekly. “They love and respect one another, and know that this is the best decision for their relationship moving forward.”
Just eight weeks ago, Brody celebrated his one-year anniversary with Kaitlynn by posting a sweet message to her on his Instagram account.
“One year ago today I married the love of my life and best friend. Cheers to us my love,” he wrote.
Since the split, both Kaitlynn and Brody have been living it up— and going without their wedding rings. Even though she and Brody have broken up, it appears that Kaitlynn will continue to appear on ‘The Hills: New Beginnings,’ as she posted a photo of herself with castmate Whitney Port on the set of the show on Thursday. Kaitlynn is still using her “married” name, Kaitlynn Carter Jenner, on her social media accounts.
