Bruce Jenner has reportedly asked a judge to throw out the wrongful death lawsuit filed in the wake of a fatal collision he was involved in earlier this year.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was sued after his involvement in a car accident that left a female neighbour dead.

According to reports, his lawyers have now filed for the wrongful death lawsuit to be dismissed, claiming he does not owe money to the deceased's relatives.

It's alleged that Bruce's attorneys are arguing the woman's stepchildren who filed the lawsuit are financially independent and therefore not entitled to damages.

They are both adults who don't live in California.

In the initial lawsuit, the stepchildren had accused Bruce, 60, of negligence claiming that his SUV collided with their mother's car, causing her to veer into traffic.

Four other cars were also involved.

Their lawsuit claims they've lost love and affection, as well as financial support. They've also had to incur expenses resulting from the accident.

Bruce released a statement following the incident, describing it as a "devastating tragedy" and saying his thoughts went out to the victim's family.
