Bruce Jenner and Family 'Have Cried Together' over Car Accident
"The family is so upset," a Jenner family friend tells PEOPLE. "It's a very dark time"
Bruce Jenner is struggling in the aftermath of the Malibu car crash that killed a woman – and, according to two sources, has turned to his family for emotional support.
“Bruce has talked to all of his kids about this,” says a Jenner family friend. “They’re all going to be there for him in any way that he needs.”
Friends say that the former Olympic athlete, 65, is not worried for himself; he’s thinking of Kim Howe, the 69-year-old woman who perished in the crash.
“Bruce is really devastated that someone died in the accident,” says the family friend. “[The family’s] hearts go out to the family of the woman who died.”
One person who is helping the reality star deal with the tragedy: His ex-wife.
“They’ve cried together about this,” says a source close to Kris Jenner. “She has told him that no matter what happens next, they’re going to face it as a family. Bruce has Kris’s full support. She’ll be there for him to lean on every step of the way.”
The Kris Jenner source continues: “She told him that if he needs anything, day or night, to call. “He has called her a few times, just to talk. She’ll be there to listen any time he needs her.”
According to police, Jenner rear-ended a Lexus on the Pacific Coast Highway, pushing it into opposing traffic, where it was struck by a Hummer. A Prius was stopped in front of the Lexus at the time of a crash.
In a statement, Jenner called the accident a devastating tragedy.
As police continue to investigate the crash, Jenner continues to pray for everyone involved in the accident.
“The family is so upset,” says the Jenner family friend. “It’s a very dark time.”
