Robert Kardashian was an American attorney and businessman who, after inflation, had a net worth of $30 million at the time of his death. Robert Kardashian was the first member of the Kardashian family to achieve celebrity, and he lay the foundation for the family’s subsequent success.
His wife, Kris, and his children, Khloe, Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, and Robert Jr., are among them. Robert had a long and successful legal career before making news for his work in the OJ Simpson case. He was also involved in a number of business initiatives and entrepreneurial endeavors.
Participation in the OJ Simpson Trial
When OJ Simpson’s wife Nicole was murdered in 1994, Robert Kardashian’s allegiance to him was put to the test. OJ stayed at the Kardashian residence after the murder to avoid media attention.
Because he was observed carrying a Louis Vuitton bag from OJ’s estate, Robert was controversially linked to the murder. Many people believe Nicole’s bloody garments and other critical evidence were in the bag.
Robert Kardashian was compelled to go on television to read a note written by OJ after he failed to turn himself in. At the time, many people suspected it was a suicide note. OJ eventually got away, but he was apprehended.
Robert Kardashian’s law license had been renewed by the time the trial began a year later. He became a volunteer assistant for an OJ-assembled legal “dream team.” Throughout the trial, he sat close to his old friend, and his support was crucial in OJ’s final acquittal.
The two buddies eventually stopped communicating to each other after the trial. According to the theory, Robert Kardashian grew to doubt his friend’s innocence and hence regretted his role in the winning court case. Later statements by Rob Kardashian back up this claim, stating that “blood proof is the biggest thorn in my side.”
