Kylie Jenner has a cousin who has been coined the ‘secret cousin’ because she is hardly ever seen.
Natalie Zettel is the daughter of Kris Jenner’s younger sister Karen Houghton, 61.
This week 20-year-old Natalie paid a visit to Kylie’s $6M Hidden Hills, California mansion where they posed by the cosmetic mogul’s very large Christmas tree. ‘Luv ya ♥️,’ said the cousin.

Last year Natalie went to Khloe Kardashian’s Good American event.
The Revenge Body star called Natalie her ‘beautiful and sweet cousin’ adding she was also with her ‘gorgeous mommy.’
Natalie has a strong Instagram presence and it’s easy to tell she has the family gene for posing.
She can be viewed in bikinis and modeling clothes galore with confidence to her over 52,000 followers. In one image she poses with Kylie Jenner.

Kris and Karen seem to have a bumpy past.
Karen was in the hospital on her 60th birthday, but it does not seem as if Kris was there to visit.
It was previously reported that Kris tries to keep Karen – who has shared her support for her nieces Kendall, Kylie and Khloe on her Twitter account of late – out of the spotlight.
Kris’ sister has a track record of being with men that have a drug problems and criminal records, Star magazine reported via Radar in 2013.

‘Kris is so over the top when it comes to being image-conscious,’ a family insider told the magazine.
While Karen is a totally down-to-earth sweetheart, she certainly doesn’t come close to meeting the glam standards that Kris likes to publicly project for her family,’ the Star source adds.
‘That’s also more than likely why you never see Karen on any of the family TV shows.’
Her primary annoyance is over her sister’s tendency to date bad guys, the report claims.

‘Karen’s relationships with such unsavory characters had to have been a major sore point with the Kardashian clan,’ a source says.
Karen had a six-year marriage with Natalie’s father, Mark Zettel, who she had to get an order of protection against in San Diego County Superior Court in January 2009. Their marriage ended in 2002.
‘He’s on crystal meth, psychiatric drugs, bipolar meds,’ Karen claimed in the request.

She alleged that her ex’s behavior was ‘volatile, threatening, scary, bullies me and my child. He will take my daughter away. He will find a way to make me pay for leaving him.’
Less than two years after she asked for an order to be place on her ex-husband, she asked for another order, this one for boyfriend Steven Edward Thornton.
He also has a track record with 12 arrests in California and Tennessee on charges of aggravated burglary and theft.
Karen claimed that Steven was a ‘convicted felon, parole violator and crack addict…. I’m afraid for my safety if he is not restrained.’

Kris, born Kristen Mary Houghton, was raised in San Diego with Karen, her only sibling.
Their single mother Mary Jo Shannon looked after them when their parents divorced. Kris was just seven.
In the star’s 2011 autobiography she said of her sister, ‘We loved each other, and we were there for each other through thick and thin, and to this day we are a part of each other’s lives.
In an interview with Dailymail.com in 2014, Karen explained that she wouldn’t be attending Kim and Kanye’s wedding, saying: ‘I’m not materialistic, I’m more into animals and charities.’
However, she wished the couple well, enthusing, ‘I love Kris, I love all of my family.’
