Last week, In Touch published excerpts from the shocking handwritten journals of Robert Kardashian, in which he alleged his first wife, Kris Kardashian, was a negligent parent and was, at times, verbally and physically abusive. Robert left the journals as well as divorce documents and memos to Ellen Kardashian, whom he married before losing his battle with esophageal cancer in 2003.
In addition to revealing new documents, In Touch can now present exclusive never-before-seen family photos of the Kardashian clan with Robert and Ellen in happier times.
While Kris denied the allegations, her daughters Kim and Khloé Kardashian quickly took to social media, blasting Ellen as a lying opportunist who married their father “on his deathbed,” and calling her “delusional” and a “black widow” via Twitter last week. Khloé also called Ellen “a piece of trash.” But despite all that, now In Touch can exclusively reveal private photos of the youngest Kardashian sister and three of her siblings spending the holidays and celebrating with Robert and Ellen.
These personal pictures from Robert’s family album show Kim, Rob, Kourtney and Khloé spending Christmas 2001 with their dad and Ellen, and again in 2003 at a cousin’s wedding in Beverly Hills, months before Robert’s death.
Responding exclusively to In Touch about Kim and Khloé’s Twitter rants, Ellen says she believes the sisters’ “anger is directed at the wrong person.” “They like to say horrible things about me,” Ellen continues, “but all I am saying is the truth, their father’s truth. I simply delivered handwritten diaries from their father, and Robert would have no problem with that.”
