Another reality television couple is over. Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter have split, their rep confirms to HollywoodLife. And, a new report claims they were never legally married. ‘The Hills’ stars reportedly called it quits 1 year after their June 2018 nuptials.
Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter have called it quits, the now former couple’s rep, Scott Newman confirms to HollywoodLife. “Brody Jenner & Kaitlynn Carter have decided to amicably separate,” Newman tells us. “They love and respect one another, and know that this is the best decision for their relationship moving forward.”
The two were never legally married to begin with following their June 2018 wedding in Indonesia, TMZ, who was first to break the news, reports. The Hills stars reportedly never filed for a marriage license in the states upon returning from their ceremony on the island of Nihi Sumba last summer. And, sources tell the site that Brody, 35, and Kaitlynn, 30, split because she wanted two things, a baby and a legal marriage — something the DJ did not want.
Brody and Kaitlynn are done, the insider says, adding that the lifestyle blogger has already moved out of the California home they shared together. Brody was out with friends in West Hollywood last night and he was noticeably without his wedding ring, as seen in the below photo. Brody and Kaitlynn have not addressed the breakup report. Meanwhile, both Brody and Kaitlyn have been active on social media, despite the breakup news.
Brody and Kaitlynn began dating in 2014, with the DJ proposing in 2016. There were no clear signs of relationship troubles until their relationship was documented on the latest season of MTV’s reboot of The Hills, The Hills: New Beginnings. Fans of the show have watched as the couple’s issues unfold, starting with Kaitlynn wanting kids, and Brody being reluctant to take the next step.
It all began when Kaitlynn confronted her now-ex over his claim that they were in an “open relationship.” In the premiere episode of the show, Brody explained in a confessional, “While I don’t have kids, I’m gonna pretty much do what I wanna do and live for myself, as opposed to live for another human being. I think that’s why she wants kids, she wants me to change in that way.”
Then, Brody called Kaitlynn a “psychopath” and “nightmare” during a separate argument after she became upset over him coming home from the club in the middle of the night. Brody’s reasoning was that he was at the club late because of his scheduled DJ appearance, and was adamant that he wouldn’t change his lifestyle concerning work. Tensions between the two rose when the 2018 Woolsey Fire in Southern California threatened to burn their house. At the time, Brody refused to evacuate and Kaitlynn sought refuge with family.
