Who is Kardashian grandma MJ?

MJ Shannon is Kris Jenner's mother and a grandmother to Kris's six children.

Even though she does not appear in many episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, MJ is a member of the family that Kris, her children, and their children adore.

She's loved by audiences for her bluntness, dry humor and kind spirit.

MJ was formerly an etiquette school teacher, model, and entrepreneur. She opened up a children's boutique called Shannon & Company in 1980.

She has been diagnosed with breast cancer and colon cancer, but she successfully overcame the diseases both times.

How old is she?

MJ was born on July 26, 1934, in Arkansas, making her 87-years-old.

She married her first husband when she was only 18, and then later got married a second time to an engineer named Robert True Houghton.

MJ and Robert shared two daughters together, Kris and Karen. The pair were wed for seven years before they divorced.

Following that relationship, MJ married Harry Shannon, whom she was with for 40 years before he died in a car crash in 2003.

What is Khloe Kardashian's unedited photo leak?

Khloe Kardashian's team is said to be "desperate to scrub an unedited bikini pic from the internet" after fans accused the star of editing her photos.

The photo, which Page Six confirmed as real, shows the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star in a bikini, however, her face and body are free of any airbrushing or apparent editing, unlike the majority of her social media snaps.

The photograph was taken at Kris Jenner's Palm Springs home and sees her beaming as she stands in front of the pool, in a tiny leopard print string bikini.

The family snap was said to have been shared by an assistant "without permission" and Twitter users have reported receiving "legal threats" to take it down.

A source close to the Kardashians told us Khloe "freaked out" as her viral unedited photo was posted "by mistake" by her team and now feels "embarrassed". 

According to the informant, there was a “miscommunication” between the KUWTK star and her team about “what was supposed to be posted at the time”.

Kris Jenner's mother is named as the copyright holder of the picture in a statement shared by lawyers who are removing the snap from Twitter.

The legal notice reads: "We are counsel for Mary Jo 'MJ' Shannon.

"Copies of a photograph, captured by our client, which captures her family member Khloe Kardashian in a private location (wearing a leopard print bikini), have been unlawfully posted online, without authorization."

Although the 86-year-old is the copyright owner of the shot, The Sun revealed exclusively yesterday, it was Khloe's team who posted it after a "miscommunication."

The informant alleged that Khloe became emotional and "embarrassed" as she "knew this was going to be a big deal."
