- Kris Jenner's relationship with Corey Gamble has withstood the test of time and media scrutiny, proving that their love is genuine despite their age difference.
- Jenner's children initially expressed concerns about her relationship with Gamble, but she chose to ignore their criticisms and focus on her happiness.
- Jenner has chosen not to remarry and doesn't see the need for it, as she is content with her strong partnership with Gamble and her fulfilling life as a mother and grandmother.
Kris Jenner has been with her boyfriend Corey Gamble since the summer of 2014. Jenner was in the middle of her divorce from Caitlyn Jenner (formerly known as Bruce) when she met Gamble in Spain at a mutual friend’s birthday party. After meeting, they started spending more time together in California and became inseparable. There was a lot of heat about these two in the press because Jenner was newly single and Gamble is 25 years her junior. However, after almost 10 years, these two have proved they’re the real deal – despite the age difference and media attention.
As the matriarch of the family and someone who runs multiple businesses, fans were excited to see Jenner in a new light on the former reality TV show Keeping Up With the Kardashians. After an unhappy final few years of her marriage to Caitlyn Jenner, it was good to see Kris smile again.
Jenner and Gamble became close quickly, leading to his appearance on their reality TV show in 2015. Today, the two are still going strong – despite Jenner's life in the fast lane as the mom and business manager of one of the most popular families in the world.
The Kardashian-Jenners Were Concerned By Their Relationship
After the couple met in 2014, Corey made his first appearance on Keeping Up With the Kardashians a year later, according to People. While Jenner was happily divorced and excited by her new relationship, her kids weren’t sold on Gamble. As seen in the series, Kim Kardashian believed her mom was rushing the relationship. Jenner wasn’t pleased by her kids' nagging, and was living in the moment with Gamble. Even with six kids, Jenner found a way to tune out their criticisms and focus on her blossoming new relationship.
Years later in 2018, Jenner and Gamble continued to get serious, but her kids still weren’t completely on board. As noted by Cheat Sheet, Khloé said on an episode of KUWTK that she never felt "comfortable" around Gamble, and that she wanted to know why. Since Gamble was close in age to Khloé and the rest of Jenner’s kids, he felt they were more “peers” than anything. Seeing their mother in a relationship so soon after leaving the father of her children was hard for the family, but Jenner and Gamble stayed together.
Kris Started Wearing A Diamond Ring On 'That' Finger
In 2018, Page Six spotted Jenner wearing a large diamond on her ring finger. It was rumored the two were engaged, and Jenner only added fuel to the fire when she wore the ring on The Late Late Show With James Corden. By that point, the couple had been together for four years. However, not long after she was first seen with the ring, Jenner came forward in an interview for the Divorce Sucks podcast where she said she doesn’t see the need to get married again.
As reported by People, the "momager" began: "You know, you never say never, but I often say it’s just not what I think I need to do again based on my past." She further explained that she is in a great relationship with Gamble and doesn’t want to “mess that up.” With six kids, over 10 grandchildren, and a strong partner, Jenner feels blessed where she’s at in life. "I think that I just feel really grateful and blessed for my past experiences and I’m looking forward to my future and I just don’t think that I want to go there."
Jenner Calls Gamble An Amazing 'Step Dad'
Considering the age difference between Jenner and Gamble, fans of the couple wondered if he wanted kids of his own – and if that would mean that Jenner would be interested in baby number seven. However, a source close to Gamble told Hollywood Life in 2020 that he was fulfilled with his choices in life and didn’t want kids. "Corey Gamble is content not getting married. He knows at his age this is something that could or could not happen, same with having kids, and he’s happy. He loves life the way it is," the source claimed.
Despite saying that Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé were his peers, Jenner views Gamble as a stepfather to her children. On his 42nd birthday, Jenner posted a sweet message on Instagram, saying that Gamble was the "most amazing partner, friend, uncle, stepdad, travel aficionado, therapist, shopping teammate, most stylish, most patient, and most fabulous overall life coach!"
As Jenner’s partner, it appears these two are in it for the long haul – without the pressure of a marriage certificate or raising kids. As a mother and grandmother to a famous family, Gamble has his hands full supporting and loving the one and only Kris Jenner.
