    Brody, Brandon, and Burt Jenner are undoubtedly supporting father Bruce in the wake of his separation from his wife of 22 years, Kris, but that doesn't mean there are any hard feelings within the Kardashian-Jenner clan.

    While some reports suggest that Bruce's sons from his previous marriages to Chystie Crownover and Linda Thompson are "thrilled" with the separation, a source tells E! News that's simply not the case, calling the tabloid claims "garbage."

    The source adds that there are "no divorce plans" for the pair and, with the exception of annoying paparazzi and erroneous media reports, the family is otherwise "happy and healthy."

    On Tuesday, Bruce and Kris Jenner formally announced they have separated after over two decades of marriage.

    "We are living separately and we are much happier this way," the pair exclusively told E! News. "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."

    Following the news of their separation, the 63-year-old father has been seen out and about wearing his wedding ring, although Kris ditched her diamond bling while visiting a storage center the same day as the duo's announcement.

    And while the pair's separation seems to be amicable, the cordial behavior has not extended to paparazzi, who received an earful of expletives from Bruce Tuesday after taunting the former Olympian about the split. He was later seen flipping the bird at the paps with daughters Kendall, 17, and Kylie, 16.

    "It's been coming for a while," a source exclusively told E! News after the separation announcement. "Obviously it is very sad for everyone, but it's no surprise and everyone has had time to adapt to this new reality."

    Prior to the split, Brody, 30, opened up about Bruce and Kris' relationship in the September issue of Now magazine:

    "I stay out of their business, but as far as I'm concerned, they haven't split up," he said. "Dad's been in Malibu—he grew up out here—and the press has made a big deal of it...It's nothing to do with them breaking up."
