In a sudden burst of anger, BRUCE JENNER stormed out on his wife KRIS after a blazing fight over fears she's turning their youngest daughters into "Kardashian Robots."
The former Olympian has "had it with Kris' manipulative ways and packed his bags and left after the fight," disclosed an insider.
The devastating blow to the couple's 20-year union came when Kris arranged for their daughters, KENDALL, 16, and KYLIE, 14, to portray the super-creepy twins from the cult classic "The Shining" for an "America's Next Top Model" photo shoot.
After a furious confrontation with Kris, 56, for exploiting the teens, Bruce, 62, took off, grabbing a flight out of Los Angeles on Feb 27.
"Kris was crying hysterically when she finally got Bruce on his cell phone," disclosed the insider. "She sobbed that she was sorry for everything and that if he came back, they could get the marriage back on track.
"But Bruce is fed up with his wife's cold, bloodless ambition for the children. He was so angry he wouldn't even tell her where he was. He just said that she needed help big-time.
"They talked about marriage therapy as a last-ditch effort to avoid divorce. She desperately wanted him back.
"Bruce returned two days later, but the strife is far from over. They're barely speaking to each other. Bruce told her that ambition is in her blood like a disease."
