Brody Jenner

Brody Jenner

Brody Jenner (born August 21, 1983) is best known for his tabloid exploits and high-profile relationships with darlings of the super-market gossip rags, such as Kristin Cavallari and Nicole Richie. He is a regular on the Los Angeles nightclub scene, but to his credit, he is also a model who was featured in several Guess? ads, and a reality television star on the short-lived FOX show, "Princess of Malibu," and also on "The Hills": he had bit-parts in both shows.

Family Life

Jenner is the youngest son of Olympic decathlon champion Bruce Jenner and actress Linda Thompson. He is a stepson of songwriter David Foster, the brother of Brandon Jenner, and a stepbrother of Kourtney Kardashian and Kim Kardashian. He currently lives in Malibu, California.

Professional Associations

Jenner is the CEO of Brody Jenner Productions, and the Vice President of 143 Records, Warner Brothers, ARCHANGEL LA, Precise Music Group, Jon Jioka, and 310 Creative.

Personal Life and Media Attention

Jenner has garnered the reputation of being a slight womanizer around the Hollywood scene.
His fame gained more substance when he began dating Laguna Beach actress Kristin Cavallari, in September 2005. They continued to be together for about one year, and reportedly broke up in August of 2006. After which he dated his longtime friend, and media queen, Nicole Richie. There were several pictures circulating the internet which showed Jenner and Richie eating at a restuarant - specifically Ritchie was taking a big bite of her hamburger. These pictures were plastered all over the gossip blogs and tabloids, because of Ritchie's rumored eating disorder.

He was interviewed in February 2007 issue of Details magazine recounting a conversation he had with his Spencer Pratt, where Spencer told Jenner a way to make a bigger name for himself in the press: "Here’s what you’re gonna do. You’re gonna start dating Nicole Richie. And you’re gonna get that skinny bitch to eat, all right? You are about to become 'The Guy Who Got Nicole Richie to Eat.' Process that shit, bro. You’ll be, like, a fucking hero to America.”

By early October, however, their respective representatives announced the pair’s split, and wasting no time, Jenner moved on to date another former "Laguna Beach" star, Lauren Conrad. Their first date was seen on season two of Conrad's show, "The Hills," but less than one month later, Jenner confirmed he and Conrad were no longer seeing each other. Apparently, though, even after their split, they were spotted together at the Los Angeles hot spot, Hyde.

Most recently, Jenner has been romantically linked to Lindsay Lohan. Us Weekly reported on Jan. 31, 2007, that Lohan was sending Jenner "sexy text messages," one of which said that Lohan wanted “McDonalds and Sex.”

A New York Times review of "The Hills" described Jenner in a scene of the show, when Jenner is talking to Conrad: “She's also keenly attuned to affectations, as becomes clear tonight on her date with Hollywood's junior-varsity womanizer, Brody Jenner. He praises her smile, somewhat by rote, and she protests that it's flawed, exhibiting some wit on the subject of features that purportedly give a face "character." This Austenian playfulness about courtship confounds dopey Brody, and he resorts to repeating, dumbly, ‘You have a beautiful smile.’”
