Early Life

Kris was born in San Diego, California to Mary Jo "M.J." Campbell & Robert True Houghton, who was an engineer. She has a sister named Karen.

Her parents divorced when Kris was 7 years old. She & Karen were solely raised by their mother until Mary Jo remarried to businessman, Harry Shannon.

Three months after moving to Oxnard, California, Harry's business partner ran off with all the company's money, so the family moved back to San Diego.

She attended Clairemont High School (where she graduated in 1973) & worked as an airline stewardess for a year in 1976.


Kris runs her own production company Jenner Communications which is based in Los Angeles.

Since the start of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," Kris has managed her daughter Kim's career. She also is involved with the business management of her other daughters and son.

On November 1, 2011, she released her autobiography "Kris Jenner... and All Things Kardashian."

In the summer of 2013, Kris hosted a pop culture-driven daytime talk show "Kris." The series began its six-week trial summer run on several Fox-owned stations on July 15, 2013, but it was not extended.

Personal Life

On July 8, 1978, Kris married Robert Kardashian. On April 18, 1979, she gave birth to her first child, a daughter Kourtney Mary Kardashian.

In 1991, Kris & Robert divorced and she married Bruce Jenner (now Caitlyn Jenner) in April of that same year. She and Robert remained close friends up until his death in 2003 due to esophageal cancer.

The Kardashian family was very close to O.J. Simpson and Nicole Brown Simpson.

The Simpson trial caused conflict between Kris and Robert as he was part of O.J. Simpson's defense team and Nicole was Kris's best friend.

In her book, Kris explained that she named her daughter Kendall Nicole after Nicole Brown Simpson. She wore maternity clothing during the trial that she had gotten from Nicole.

In 2012, Kris confessed she had an affair with former soccer player\animator Todd Waterman during her marriage to Robert. She referred to him as "Ryan" in her autobiography, but he later revealed his identity on his own.

They had an encounter on "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" while Kris was having a tennis lesson.

On November 3, 1995, Kris gave birth to her fifth child (first with Bruce) and fourth daughter Kendall Nicole Jenner at the age of 39.

On August 10, 1997, she gave birth to her sixth child (second with Bruce) and fifth daughter Kylie Kristen Jenner.

She has nine grandchildren: Mason, Penelope and Reign from Kourtney; North, Saint and Chicago from Kim; Dream from Rob;Stormi from Kylie and True from Khloé.

In October of 2013, Kris & Bruce announced they were separating. On September 22, 2014, Kris filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.
