Brody Jenner makes a statement about his relationship with his ex, Kaitlynn Carter
He took to Instagram to issue the lengthy statement.
Brody Jenner has spoken out for the first time since it came to light that he and his wife, Kaitlynn Carter, decided to separate.
In the past week, it was revealed that the couple broke up - however, that was made more complicated after Kaitlynn was spotted kissing Miley Cyrus, who also recently broke up with her husband, Liam Hemsworth.
Brody wrote on Instagram today saying that there has been too much negativity directed at his ex.
"There is far too much negativity being directed at someone who I love and care about very much. I feel the need to set the story straight.
"Kaitlynn and I have been best friends for 6 years, and we continue to be. We, like many others before us and many after us, grew in different directions over those same 6 years.
"Kaitlynn is a wonderful person, beautiful and fun to be with, always a positive force in my life. We decided the best move for both of us was to keep our love for each other strong but move forward separately with our lives.
"I respect Kaitlynn and care deeply about her. She deserves to be able to move forward in her life with respect and happiness."
