The Kardashians Pay Tribute To Father On What Would Have Been His 72nd Birthday


Robert Kardashian, the patriarch of the internationally famous Kardashian family, would have been 72 years old on February 22nd had he not succumbed to esophageal cancer 13 years ago. To honor his memory and celebrate his life, Robert’s children with Kris Jenner shared emotional messages and throwback pictures on social media yesterday.

The young Kardashians, Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Rob, took the chance to share their feelings with the world and pay tribute to their beloved father, the famous lawyer who defended O.J. Simpson during his 1995 murder trial.
