TV reality stars Bruce Jenner and Kris Jenner (Keeping Up With the Kardashians) are in the middle of divorce after 22 years of marriage. Kris’ friend and Today TV host, Kathie Lee Gifford, confirmed the news this week and said the couple is amicably splitting their $60 million fortune. Bruce was recently spotted spending $50,000 of it buying a new UTV racecar from NASCAR star Robby Gordon. Bruce likes gadgets, big and small, from remote controlled helicopters to monster motorcycles. But the one thing that Bruce seemingly cannot live without is his white baseball hat. He wears it everywhere. On it is the Tiger Woods Foundation emblem.
The former Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete, Jenner, shares some things in common with the golf legend Tiger Woods. (They have met and hung out together in 2013.) They both have been featured on Wheaties (both separately and together for Wheaties’ 75th anniversary), and now they’re both very public divorcees. This might be difficult to believe but Bruce Jenner was once known as the White Tiger. Before his family’s hit show Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Jenner starred in the 1981 TV movie Grambling’s White Tiger. It was based on the true story of Jim Gregory, the first white quarterback at Grambling College, a historically black college, in 1962. Harry Belafonte starred as Coach Eddie Robinson. LeVar Burton (Roots, Star Trek TNG) played Gregory’s (Jenner’s) first friend on the team. Like Jenner at the 1976 Summer Olympics, the film won Gold at the New York Film Festival.
