In a recent episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim and Kourtney travelled to Armenia with their children. The pair educated them on their father’s heritage.
Fans who aren’t well-versed on the finer details of the Kardashian-Jenner family history may not be aware that Robert Kardashian is no longer with us.
Robert Kardashian is Kris Jenner’s former spouse who fathered Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob Kardashian.
He was an American attorney and businessman who gained recognition as OJ Simpson’s friend and defence attorney during his murder trial in 1995.
Born in Los Angeles, Robert’s great-grandparents were ethnic Armenian Spiritual Christian Prygun immigrants from Karakale (now known as Merkezkarakale).
Robert was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in 2003, and died two months later aged 59. Kris ultimately went on to marry Caitlyn Jenner, formerly Bruce Jenner, and is now dating Corey Gamble.
Kris and Caitlyn are parents to Kylie and Kendall Jenner, who are half sisters to Kim, Kourtney and Khloe.
