Kris Jenner had a facelift because she wanted to "freshen up" for her daughter Kim Kardashian's wedding.

The reality TV star is expected to wed fiance Kris Humphries on August 20 in a televised spectacle and 55-year-old Kris went under The Knife to ensure she looks picture perfect for the big day.

Speaking on TV show 'The Talk', she said: "That was brave. That was a brave thing to do. I had a little, you know, freshening up done for the wedding. Just gotta do what a girl's gotta do!"

The procedure will be featured on an upcoming episode of 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians', with a recent sneak peek revealing Kris had to be reassured by Kim before her surgery.

Kris complained: "I've never had such a stressful morning, honestly, in my life."

Kim said: "Don't cry. If you're scared, you don't have to do it. I'm sure people are scared all the time."

Despite reports the pair have clashed over the cost of the wedding with Kim wanting a lavish event and her mother hoping to make a profit from the nuptials, Kris denied the event will cost $10 million saying she would convince Kim to marry in Las Vegas before she spent that much money.

She explained: "Those reports are false, for sure. You know, if she was going to spend that much money on a wedding, I'd tell her to write me a check and go to Vegas."
