Kris Jenner became famous after marrying notable attorney Robert Kardashian, the primary defense lawyer for football player O.J. Simpson during his highly publicized murder trial. The spouse have four children together; daughters Kourtney, Kim and Khloe, and son Robert. Kris and Robert officially divorced in 1991 and he died in 2003 of esophageal cancer.
In between her divorce process, Kris began dating Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete Bruce Jenner and they then tied the knot in April 1991. The pair has two daughters; Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner. In addition to both, Kris also becomes stepmother to Bruce's four children Burt, Casey, Brandon and Brody.
In 2007, Kris, Bruce, alongside Kourtney, Kim , Khloe, and Rob starred on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians", aired on E!. Following the show's success, the family became wildly popular and continued appearing on its spin offs. Kris, in the meantime, received much exposure as the "momager" who helped manage the career of their famous children and their business ventures, which among many included clothing and jewelry line as well as skin care and fragrance lines.
By 2013, Kris had her own daytime talk show, "Kris", which sad to say failed to impress the audience and run only six weeks. In October the same year the couple announced their separation and then filed for divorce in September the following year. "We will always have much love and respect for each other. Even though we are separated, we will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our number one priority," so said Kris and Bruce in a joint statement.
Kris Jenner was born as Kristen Mary Houghton on November 5, 1955 in San Diego, California. She has a younger sister named Karen.
