The Kardashian family has been on everyone's lips and known around the world since the wedding between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. But even before that, the name Kardashian had gained worldwide notoriety. Robert Kardashian, father of Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Rob Kardashian Jr., was a prominent American attorney and entrepreneur.

Robert Kardashian was born in Los Angeles to Armenian immigrants. He received his bachelor's degree in business administration from the University of Southern California in 1966 and then earned his law degree from the University of San Diego. During this time he met the well-known football player O.J. Simpsons. Robert and O.J. became close friends and the famous sports man even became the best man at his wedding to Kristen Mary Jenner. Almost 30 years later, it turned out that this friendship would make Robert famous.
In 1994, the former wife of O.J. and her lover found dead in her mansion. Quickly the police determined against the ex-husband O.J., because he has already attracted attention due to several domestic crimes and has even made threats against his ex during the ongoing divorce. When officers  wanted to interrogate O.J., he fled from them in his car which lead to a wild chase, which was broadcast live on American television as a helicopter filmed all of it. After snipers had already positioned themselves, O.J. surrendered and was arrested.

He was charged with two counts of first degree murder, his criminal defense attorney was his friend Robert Kardashian. The trial was broadcast live on television and has already been dubbed the trial of the century by sections of the press. From a hopeless situation with countless evidence that O.J. charged, they had even DNA material against him, his friend and lawyer Robert Kardashian was able to get an acquittal, which became a worldwide sensation. Suddenly Robert Kardashian was on everyone's lips and was considered a star lawyer for hopeless cases. Privately, Robert was married to Kris Jenner, who had four children, Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Rob Kardashian Jr.

Keeping Up with the Kardashians

Kris Jenner rose to worldwide fame through the reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which chronicled the personal and professional lives of the Kardashian and Jenner families.
