Gap has to be really large if a third bend is added

So I'm trying to make a Truck bumper, and I have had success in the past, but this particular feature is not bending properly. If I bend it all with .250" sheet metal, and .040" bend radius, this angled gap works properly with any gap dimensions (.010" - .200" and up). 

Once I add this next bend, it won't allow that gap unless it's .330" or greater.

I would assume, it's because of that point coming together, but is there any way to fix this so it has a smaller gap?
