MJ married her first husband when she was just 18 years old, and then married for a second time to an engineer named Robert True Houghton.

Robert and MJ went on to have two daughters, Kris and Karen, and they stayed together for seven years before getting a divorce.

After this, MJ went on to marry Harry Shannon, who she was with for 40 years until he tragically died in a car crash in 2003.

Who is Kris Jenner’s sister Karen Houghton?

Kris’ sister is Karen Houghton, 61, and the sisters haven’t always seen eye to eye, it has been reported.

Karen is a former stewardess turned careworker and part-time nurse, and she reportedly fell out with her sibling for a number of unconfirmed reasons.

Karen has spoken out about Kris in the past, and told Radar Online during her split from Caitlyn Jenner, then known as Bruce Jenner, saying: “I think she’s [Kris] got issues right now because Bruce left her.

“He couldn’t take the yelling anymore and stuff.”

In 2013, Kris told Radar Online of her sister: “I am not in touch with her. But I wish her the very best.”

In 2016, Karen underwent a facelift on Inside Edition, where surgeons made the star look like her older sister.

Talking on the show, she said: “Certain angles of my face were just not what I wanted. No one wants a double chin… I want to be a little more beautiful.”

After the surgery, Karen said: “I look like my beautiful sister Kris and I never thought I would.”

And it appears the feud between the siblings may be over, with Karen tweeting in 2015 on Kris’ birthday: “Happy birthday Kristen! I have always looked up to you. Love you.”

Karen’s daughter is Natalie Zettel, cousin of the Kardashians and an aspiring model.
