Kris Jenner, matriarch of the reality-show Kardashian clan, has filed for divorce from her husband of 23 years, former Olympic champion Bruce Jenner, from whom she has been amicably separated since last year.

E! News reported Monday that "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" matriarch Kris Jenner, 58, cited irreconcilable differences in court documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court. GossipCop.com added that Bruce Jenner, 64 -- renowned for his gold medal decathlon performance at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal -- was filing a response the same day. The two have no prenuptial agreement, it added.

E!, which airs the various Kardashian reality shows, said Kris Jenner requested joint custody of the couple's 17-year-old daughter, Kylie Jenner. The Jenners also have an adult daughter, Kendall, 18.

Representatives for Kris and Bruce Jenner did not respond to Newsday requests for comments.

In October, the Jenners had said in a statement, "We are living separately and we are much happier this way. But we will always have much love and respect for each other. Even though we are separated, we will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our number-one priority."

On April 21, the couple's 23rd anniversary, Kris Jenner tweeted, "Happy Anniversary to one of the most amazing men I know!!!! I love you."

Kris Jenner was married to famed attorney Robert Kardashian from 1978 until divorcing in 1991. That year she wed Bruce Jenner. This was his third marriage. He has two children, Burt and Casey, with first wife Chrystie Crownover, to whom he was married from 1972 to 1981; and two sons, Brandon and Sam, aka Brody, with Linda Thompson, his wife from 1982 to 1984. Both marriages ended in divorce.
