Kris Jenner Gets Facelift -- And Gets Sued?

Princess 19 on 9 Aug 2011 at 9:00am

Kris Jenner, the supermom of the Kardashian girls has recently been embroiled in a controvery of her own.  But, it's not an adult video, thank goodness.  It's for getting some work done.

The 55-year-old matriach of the Kardashian clan recently went under the knife to get "refreshed" for daughter Kim's impending August 20th nuptuals to NBA star Kris Humphries.  The facelift, um er, claimed neck lift was well documented on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

But hold on reality show watchers! Kris is a spokesperson for an anti-aging skin care line called Beautiful Eyes in a Bag.  Any face work, according to the company, is a breach of contract (cue "whodunit" music now - da, da, DUM).  B & P, the parent company, alleges that the surgery violates her agreement not to harm the reputation of the company and the product line.

Kris Jenner gets a facelift

Jenner insists the procedure didn't affect her face but simply tightened up saggy skin around her neck.  Sure...  (And how is the "neck area" NOT under the stipulations of the contract?  Oh, that's right, it's the neck, not the face...)

Well, whatever it was, one thing is for sure.  The surgery was documented and Kris, herself, admitted to some sort of work recently on CBS' The Talk.

"That was a brave thing to do.  I had a little, you know, 'freshening up' for the wedding," she says.  Ok, so she doesn't exactly admit what she had done. 

Wait, didn't Kris go bananas on daughter Khloe for gaining "happily married" weight, thus jeopardizing her weight loss plan endorsement with Quik Trim products?  Tsk, tsk Kris.  This seems a bit all too hypocritical.  No?  Hmmm...the plot thickens.

Do you think Kris would be misrepresenting the skincare line with a surgically altered face?

You are right, a contract is a contract. It is too bad if she signed not to have any work done.

It doesn't matter if you agree with facelifts or not. That is her right to get one. BUT, if she signed a contract saying she will not have work done due to an endorsement deal, that she broke that contract. Plain and simple.

Sats, find someone who will do the Vision Field test, I had to do mine twice, the first time they denied it, but then the second time I guess the pictures were more convincing . It was done under "Reconstruction" clause, maybe it was "Restorative" it's been a few years. I used an Eye Surgeon, not a plastic surgeon, maybe that was the difference here, i am going to post pics soon as I get them from the eye surgeon. Good luck!

Thanks. I really appreciate this info

@ Sats and over60...I got mine covered by insurance when I was only 47, my upper lids were pretty droopy! I would recommend the procedure, it's so worth it and low downtime.

Hey MarinemomDam, Thanks for that info. I just went for my droopy eye & I'm 57. When I asked the doctor if it could be paid for since it's heavy on my eye, he said I'd have to go through vision tests & probably won't get it.
I'm going to another doctor on Friday. I'll ask him if I can go through insurance. I'll give him a hard time if he says no. Thanks so much.

Thank you for info. I will be checking in to it.

I'm for Chris. Skincare is skincare. No product can do what surgery does no matter how much you spend or how long you use it. Skincare can keep your skin moist & blemish free, not lift your face forever, surgery can't forever either but then you go for another one. It looks funny for someone to have a nice face but when you look at their neck it doesn't match. So her skincare line will be happy she did it. She'll look better & more will look at her skin now. And to the young ones saying no one wants to grow old anymore,wait til you grow up. Someday,if your lucky to grow old & you don't look like the girl in the mirror anymore at least you can do something about it. You might be eating your words sooner than you think w/botox & fillers. To the over 60 with no money,when you get to 65 you can get a eye lift covered if your eyelids are interfering with your vision, it's like all the people with deviated septums who get nose jobs. And women who need their breast reduced, check with your insurance, if your back hurts & you have problems w/them it's covered as long as your doctor agrees. What i don't understand is why scars on the face from acne aren't covered by insurance. You had a desease called acne, had to deal with it then your left with scars to remind you. I think insurance should cover that too.

Thanks for the info about insurance maybe covering my eyelid surgery. I will check into that. When I am extra tired, I have a hard time keeping my left eye open because of the droopy lid!

Then you'll definitly get it ! My mom found out after she had it done at age 75 ! , boy was she mad! Everyone was getting it done @ an earlier age & got it paid for. Tell the doctor how it's interfering with your vision. That you have a hard time seeing. You'll get it for sure. Let us know how it works out for you. I have no doubt at all for you.

In my opinion, the skincare products are better represented when the person using the product has nice jawline and neck. As I discuss in my book "The Fine Art of Looking Younger", genetic and aging changes cause the face to sag in areas and lose volume. No skincare product can significantly make a difference. With the procedure, the face looks more balanced and skincare which can include facials, microdermabrasion, laser and products will enhance the results of a procedure. Skincare products regardless of their claims cannot "lift" so Kris Jenner in my opinion did the right thing for her and will likely appreciate the benefits of any skincare product she uses moving forward.

You are absolutely right, marinemom. Refreshing is one thing but redoing turns habit forming and pretty soon they look like someone else. What happens down the road when they find out that putting that stuff into their skin was not such a good idea? Or that the doctor they chose to do it was less than perfect?

I am Courtney Cox's age, or about, and I honestly think she has gone a bit overboard with Botox. I have had treatments a few times, and have been really happy with the results, but I think her face looks plastic I find it discouraging that they seem to have difficulty finding a balance between "refreshing" vs."redoing" their faces.

Also, Courtney Cox got into similar trouble. Except she didn't have a facelift, she just admitted to getting Botox done pretty regularly. I don't remember if she got SUED, though...but I know the anti-aging skin care company wasn't too happy about it. What makes Kris's story different, though..is that the company she endorses is an unknown company, while Courteney's isn't unknown.

I'm middle sixties,financially challenged, and on medicare and an HMO that I pay extra for. If I could afford to, I would deffinitly get my droopy eyelids fixed and a whatever to my neck. Then again, needles are not my friends. Good for her if it makes her feel better!

I don't think so. I think they wanted a spokesperson that will promote their products, and she didn't do that as well as violated a contract. We'll see what we see!

The skin care line is obviously jealous, and money hungry, loSERS.

Adrienne Arpel and Marilyn Miglin have indeed had a great deal of work done, as has Jane Seymour or that Judd woman and her Esteem line. You'll notice that they are careful to say the word SKIN alot. But these are also THEIR lines. Kris was hired to promote the line of someone else and signed a contract with their stipulations. And if that meant an agreement to no surgery, that is what it meant. She prolly could have done something and it might not have even been noticed, but Kris could never do anything without camera documentation. She also has surgical markings around her eyes in that photo. I think these guys are right to want their money back. I had neck surgery, too, to get rid of the third boob I had hanging from my chin. I'd had a double chin since I was born and got rid of it at 47 when I should have done it at 20. But my SKIN still needs some work. I can see where they can get away with some of what they say, but if they are baldly saying "I look like this solely because I use my products..." that wouldn't be right.

What about Marilyn Miglin or Adrienne both on HSN promoting their skin care lines. Their faces have been stretched from here to Sunday. And they expect people to buy their products? If they didn't work for them, they're not going to work for anyone else. Save your money, ladies, on these two product lines.

Please let their 15 minutes be over soon!!!!!!

Who cares if she had something done. I'm only 32 & would LOVE to look like her & she's pushing 60!!

And it was more than a neck lift. Look at the packing and bandaging, as well as the black surgical markings on her chin and her eyes. That's what my marks looked like! LOL!

You could afford plastic surgery too, if you spend as much time as they do on their backs.

WHO CARES!!!! When is the Kardashians 15 min of fame up? I hope its soon. I will give mom Kris credit for being the hardest working of the bunch. The rest of them, well someone tell me again what it is that they do. They always claim that they work so long and hard but what is it that they actually do? On their tv show there is an episode were they meet with the execs at sears. When they are in the board room they are all texting away. When Kim is asked for input she cant even answer a simple question and looks like a retard (way to think on your feet Kimmy). So besides mom, what actual "work" are the girls doing in regards to Sears. I doubt they are on a sowing machine thats for sure. They can do what they do best and call into or appear on a show (and moan about how hard they work). They can go on a red carpet or do some photo shoots 2 promote it. yeah lets just leave tough stuff like that for them and let the little people do all the real work.

Haha I saw that clip too, heywood! It was a little odd how Kim "runs" all these fashion businesses and such, yet couldn't seem to say one word about "her" Sears line. Her sisters seemed a little more put together though.
