A very important guide to every woman Brody Jenner dated before Kaitlynn Carter.

In perhaps the least surprising titbit of gossip to come out of The Hills reboot if you’ve kept up with Brody Jenner and his ~ways~ over the years, it’s been announced the reality star and his wife (well, sort of wife) have split.

It comes after weeks of watching them bicker on the show about things you’d hope most married couples would stop bickering about i.e. staying up all night with the lads and hitting on other women.

Watch the teaser for The Hills: New Beginnings below. Post continues after video.

“Brody Jenner & Kaitlynn Carter have decided to amicably separate. They love and respect one another, and know that this is the best decision for their relationship moving forward,” a statement issued to E! News read.

But the split announcement, issued by Jenner’s people over the weekend, came alongside the revelation from a close source that they’re not actually married. In fact, their 2018 Thailand ceremony is not legally recognised in the US.

While the faux reality show has shed light on the cracks in the foundation of their relationship, according to a source who spoke to E! News, there have been “several years” of underlying trust issues that eventually drove the couple apart.

During their time on The Hills, Jenner called his ex a “psychopath” and “nightmare” during an argument about him coming home late. They also seemed to be on different pages when it came to having kids. “While I don’t have kids,” Jenner said in a confessional on the show, “I’m gonna pretty much do what I wanna do and live for myself, as opposed to live for another human being. I think that’s why she wants kids, she wants me to change in that way.”

In addition to this, they also fought when Jenner revealed they were in an “open relationship”.

Following the news, Spencer Pratt, being Spencer Pratt, was quick to say he saw it all coming. Why? Because Jenner, in his eyes, was “a prisoner”.

Speaking on their Make Speidi Famous Again podcast, the crystal aficionado said he felt as though Jenner needed help escaping his marriage.

“I’m not surprised,” Pratt said. “I feel like I said it, maybe it hasn’t aired yet, but that he almost was like a hostage. It felt like he was trying to tell me, ‘Get me out. Get me out.'”

Seeing as many of us have a 16-year-old Hills-obsessed teen inside us secretly cheering that Brody Jenner is single once again, let’s take a look at who he’s dated in the past, shall we?

Who could forget this power couple of the early 2000s? In all their backwards cap and too-hipster jeans glory, Kristin and Brody were iconic.

They dated from 2005 to 2006, so it was pretty short-lived. But we'll never forget it.

Following his split from Kristin, Jenner had a brief relationship with The Simple Life star Nicole Richie, who he's known since he was a toddler.

When we say brief we mean a couple of months, tops. The two were said to have been romantically linked from August 2006 to October that same year.

LC and Brody Jenner dated for a whole month on The Hills, which Jenner says "was all fake".

We don't know what to believe.

Paris Hilton

WELL.

Given Paris is Nicole's former bestie, this rumoured tryst is a little on the awkward side.

In 2008, Jenner was photographed getting close with Paris on New Year’s Eve, but he denied kissing the heiress/reality star/DJ/singer.

“I’ve never made out with Paris Hilton, so that’s false,” he declared.

We're not so sure.

Haylie Duff

Back in the summer of 2007, Jenner and Duff were seen several times out partying together, starting rumours they were set to become yet another iconic (and seemingly random) Hollywood couple.

But weeks later it fizzled out and both were back on the market.

In Spanish, “problems” are considered masculine even though they have a feminine ending. I rest my case.

After having rumored flings with Paris Hilton and Haylie Duff, Jenner started dating his first of three Playboy models: Cora.

A few months later, she dumped him in April 2008 after he was spotted with another girl.

Jenner's second Playboy Playmate girlfriend Jayde appeared on The Hills with Jenner, before they split a little more than a year later.

Avril Lavigne

This brings us to the relationship we all forgot about.

Avril and Jenner dated for almost two years – from 2010 to 2012 – and even had each other's names tattooed on themselves.

They reportedly split because Avril wanted to get married, according to the Daily Mail.

Jenner met his third – yes, third – Playboy model girlfriend in 2013. They dated for a few months before splitting in November that same year.

Kaitlynn Carter

This brings us to Jenner's now ex "wife", Kaitlynn, who he met at a party in 2013 and married in 2018.

"I'd have to say [the best sex I’ve ever had is] with my girlfriend, Kaitlynn,” Kim Kardashian’s step brother confessed in an interview with GQ in 2015. “We have the best sex together, but we also switch it up and do fun things as well. We're not opposed to having somebody else join in on our sexcapades," he said of the influencer.

Fast forward to now, and the couple are sadly no more.

If you're wondering what's yet to come from newly-single Jenner on The Hills: New Beginnings, according to Spencer Pratt, a lot.

“I think season two we’re going to get to see real Brody… I think he’s [going to have] way more fun. He’s way less intense,” Spencer told his podcast.

Verrrrry interesting.
