Kim Kardashian gave her followers a throwback to her father’s early days.
The SKIMS founder spent her Saturday night remembering her late dad as she posted clips of her watching her dad’s home videos in her Instagram story. The first footage was a throwback one, in which Robert was seen sitting behind the wheel of a car as a young man, followed by a picture where he’s dressed in a suit. The next footage featured him in his later years, engaging with guests at a party and was joined by his ex-wife (Kim’s mother) Kris Jenner.
“My dad was a cutie,” Kim captioned her story as she zoomed in on what appeared to be her bedroom TV.
Robert Kardashian was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in July 2003 and he died two months later, on September 30, 2003, at his home in Encino, Los Angeles. He got married to Kris Jenner in July 1978, the couple was married for 12 years and welcomed four children together before parting their ways. The four children included Kim, 43, Kourtney, 44, Khloé, 29, and Robert Kardashian Jr., 36.
According to People Magazine, in an episode of The Kardashians which aired in November, Robert Sr.’s cousin Cici Bussey revealed that Kim brought her parents together on her father’s deathbed as Robert Sr.’s family initially didn’t want any contact with Kris after the couple separated.
On the show, Bussey told Khloé that “Kim snuck her in,” “They said their goodbyes, I think they professed their love and she said, ‘You’re the love of my life,’ and he said the same thing. And he died.”
She further said, “It was fabulous and amazing until it wasn’t, and that’s the truth, it was magical until it wasn’t, and that one day it ended.”
Before this, on Friday, Kim shared her workout routine for the new year with her followers. The star posted videos of her grand home gym during an intense workout session. Kim was seen wearing a nude sports bra with black workout pants and a pair of workout socks as she lifted weights and worked out in the video.
