Bruce Jenner has responded to a wrongful death lawsuit filed against him after a fatal car accident this past February in Malibu.
The wreck left one driver, 69-year-old Kimberly Howe, dead, and five others injured after the four-car pileup on the Pacific Coast Highway.
According to court papers obtained by E! News, Jenner describes the car accident as "a terrible tragedy" but claims the Plaintiffs are "financially independent and successful…living and working and residing out-of-state for decades, who do not and cannot allege that they are financially dependent upon their stepmother for the necessities of life." In early May, Howe's two adult stepchildren, William Howe and Dana Redmond, filed the lawsuit alleging that the impact of Jenner's SUV "propelled" Kimberly into the other lane.
William and Dana claim that Kimberly's death caused them to lose "the love, affection, support, comfort, society, financial support and more from Kimberly, upon whom they were dependent."
