Bruce Jenner quits Hollywood to spend more time with his children

2014-02-14 17:00
Los Angeles - Bruce Jenner wants nothing more to do with Hollywood.

The 64-year-old Olympic gold medallist has reportedly decided to turn his back on fame and his own reality TV show Keeping Up With the Kardashians following his split from wife Kris Jenner in October.

The athlete has reluctantly continued to take part in the programme - which is currently shooting its final installment of the series - when necessary and prefers to film his scenes at his home in Malibu, but he is adamant he won't return to the show if it is renewed next season.

Bruce is keen to spend his time playing golf, flying helicopters, riding motorcycles and spending time with his children, Kendall, 18, and Kylie, 16 - who he has with Kris - and Brandon, 32, and Brody, 30, who he has with his ex-wife Linda Thompson .

According to, Bruce wants to try and build the relationship with his sons that he never had as they were growing up and wants his base to be in Malibu rather than Los Angeles.

Meanwhile, the star - who was married to Kris for 22 years - has been trying to embrace the single life, and reportedly underwent a laryngeal shave to reduce the size of his Adam's apple last month, and grew his hair long, in a desperate bid to stay youthful.

A source said previously: "He totally has this 'I may be an old man, but I'm cool and young too' syndrome and no one can tell him otherwise.

"He's a bit lonely, but he's doing his thing. Everything in the end of his marriage just became too much for him and his freedom is really liberating. He wanted to grow his hair long, so he did it. He wants to get manicures, so he gets them." publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
