The 68-year-old took to Instagram yesterday to share the sad news with her 52.6 million followers.

Kris shared a series of snaps of her and her younger sister, Karen Houghton, along with a statement which began: "It is with the heaviest heart and deepest sadness that I share that my sister Karen passed away yesterday unexpectedly."

Kris announced the news of her sister's death yesterday (19 March).

She continued: "My heart aches for my mom MJ and my niece Natalie and I pray that God guides us all through this difficult time.

"Karen was beautiful inside and out. She was the sweetest, kindest, the most sensitive and vulnerable and so so funny.

"She always felt grateful and thankful for her life and treasured her family and friends and especially her beautiful daughter."

Kylie and Khloe also shared sweet tributes for their late aunt.

The Kardashians star carried on: "She holds such a huge part of my heart and I cherish every single memory we have together.

"Karen’s passing is a reminder that life is so short and precious and tomorrow is never promised. We must tell those we cherish how much we love them."

She finished off the heartfelt statement adding: "I love you my beautiful sister."

Kris' daughter, Kylie and Khloe, have since also taken to their own respective Instagram accounts to share a tribute to their late aunt.

Many fellow celebs rushed in to share their support for Kris.

Khloe commented on Kris' post writing: "I love you mommy," while Kylie took to her story to repost one of the throwback pics of her mum and Karen.

Many fellow celebs and fans have since also shared their words of support for Kris with MUA James Charles writing: "So so so sorry for your loss mama."

"So very sorry," offered Viola Davis while Zoe Saldaña added: "Our hearts are with you. So sorry lady."

Yolanda Hadid chimed in: "So sorry for your loss."
