Bruce Jenner needs space

Los Angeles: Former American athlete Bruce Jenner has rented a house in Malibu because he needs time away from his socialite wife, Kris Jenner.

While Kris resides at the family compound in Calabasas, California, Bruce has been spending time at his new rented beach home, reports

"Kris and Bruce still love each other very much but sometimes Kris can just get a little too much to handle so Bruce distances himself. He is a relatively low-drama guy. Bruce just wants a place for some peace and quiet, it`s all he really has ever wanted and hasn`t had much of for the last few years," a source told OK! magazine.

The couple, who together have two daughters, Kendall, 17, and Kylie, 15, try to spend some quality time together at least once a week in a bid to keep their marriage healthy.

"She and Bruce see each other at least once a week, on the weekend," the source said.
