The diaries of the late Robert Kardashian, obtained exclusively by In Touch from his widow, Ellen Kardashian, shocked the world last week revealing a detailed portrait of absentee mom, Kris Jenner, who was verbally and physically abusive while she carried on an affair with a younger man.
Now, In Touch —on newsstands now—can exclusively reveal even more revelations from the Kardashian diaries, as well as never-before seen divorce papers that suggest Kris’ behavior was even worse than her children knew.

Robert wrote of a day when young Kourtney called him “crying and hysterical” after what Robert claimed was abuse that included Kris pulling her daughter’s hair and twisting their arms. Kourtney and Kim “are scared and nervous, have been beat up several times before and are very, very intimidated,” he wrote in an Oct. 20, 1993 memo.
Those episodes left Robert, who died of esophageal cancer in 2003, devastated — and determined to protect his children. “He loved those kids more than anything,” Ellen Kardashian, who was with Robert for five years and married him shortly before his death in 2003, tells In Touch. “Kris didn’t even want kids…Though she liked buying them clothes, making them beautiful,” Ellen claims.

Last week, Khloé, Kim and Kourtney took to Twitter to defend their mother.
That sentiment was echoed by Robert in his journals. On April 23, 1990, the father of four wrote: “[Kris] doesn’t really care about the kids at all.” And in a private memo, he claimed he heard her say, “I love Todd more than anything in this world.”
Enough for Robert to foot the bill for Kris’ romantic gifts? Robert found a $1,200 charge for a refrigerator on his monthly Sears bill and when he called to tell them they’d made a mistake, “They informed me that my wife had purchased this refrigerator for Todd Waterman,” he wrote. He also accused Kris of not returning his gun and silverware, “with a value in excess of $35,000,” that they had been given as a wedding present.

Though Kris has said she's unaware of the documents' existence and denied the allegations in last week's story, some close to the family tell a different story. "What Kris put these girls through is right there in black and white,” a family source tells In Touch. “Their father was brutally honest.”
