The Sisters Didn’t Always Get Along

Despite Kris Jenner’s life in the public eye, Karen Houghton has managed to stay out of the spotlight for the most part. However, in 2014, she gave an interview about her bond with Kris. The sisters have had a rather complicated relationship over the years.

According to Karen, her sister changed drastically when she became an A-list celebrity. It also seemed like Kris’ younger sister took sides in her high-profile divorce from Caitlyn Jenner and she decided to favor her ex-in-law’s position in the matter.Two years later, Karen made the news again because she had undergone a five-hour-long facelift procedure to look more like her big sister.

In 2019, it seemed like the sisters had put their differences aside. Kris Jenner and Karen Houghton posed for a photo around Christmas time with their mother, MJ, and two of their daughters Natalie Zettel and Kylie Jenner.

Over the last several years, their relationship status has been unknown. Karen Houghton has not been spotted with the Kardashian-Jenner clan. Instead, she has opted to go under the radar.

Before her death, she was working as a part-time nurse and an author. She is survived by her daughter, Natalie, her mother, sister, several nieces, and a nephew. Karen Houghton was only 65 years old.
