Her first husband, Robert Kardashian, was an Armenian-American. His grandparents fled what is now Turkey in fear of the Armenian Genocide in 1915. Gaining national recognition as O. J. Simpson’s friend and defense attorney during Simpson’s 1995 murder trial, Robert Kardashian died in 2003.

He is believed to be the father of Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Rob Kardashian, and possibly Khloé Kardashian. However, their extremely wealthy mother does not have Middle Eastern ancestry.

In October 2015, Kris Jenner looked fresh and vibrant as she arrived at Los Angeles International Airport after a long flight from Paris. She was accompanied by her loyal boy toy, the then 34-year-old Corey Gamble.
