Ellen Kardashian, Robert Kardashian’s widow, has fired back at stepdaughters Kim and Khloe, accusing them attacking her online with vicious lies.
Ellen Kardashian has been labeled a “piece of trash” by the reality stars.
Robert Kardashian’s widow received volleys of insults from Kim and Khloe Kardashian after she leaked diaries she claimed were penned by the late lawyer, in which he says their mother Kris Jenner was guilty of physically abusing Kim.
In an interview with InTouch magazine, Ellen Kardashian said she was particularly enraged at claims made by Khloe that she had married her father “on his deathbed”, clarifying that she married him two months before he died of esophageal cancer in 2003.
“To say that is completely false and horrible. I was with Robert for almost five years total. I dated him for three years, and he proposed to me in 2001,” she said.
“We married two months prior to his passing in 2003 and planned a wedding. We didn’t just run right out and get married.
“In fact, I met with the girls just the week before to go over all our plans. We had a beautiful wedding with the girls and all of his family at our home.
“It’s sad they choose to lie when they know their father was so happy on that wonderful day.”
Ellen Kardashian also blasted the sisters for getting the number of years since their father’s death wrong and for saying she needs to get a job.
She added that the way Khloe Kardashian mocked her for going bankrupt was unfair, as she could not afford to pay home loans taken out by their father.
Ellen Kardashian went on: “Now that’s old news. When Robert died, he left me a big mortgage on both homes, and I had to pay.
“So when the real estate market went south, just like 50 per cent of all the rest of Americans, it wasn’t worth keeping. So at my lawyer’s advice, I didn’t.
“That was two years ago, and I let the bank take it back. To get out from underneath everything else, they filed bankruptcy at the same time. That’s true and a record anyone can pull up at the County Recorder.”
In addition Ellen was unhappy at being labeled Robert Kardashian’s ex, and denied she was out to make money by selling the journals.
Ellen Kardashian exclaimed: “I am not his ex! I am his widow! I have nothing to hide. I have not belittled them or chastised them or said shameful things about them.
“If this was about money, I would have done this nine years ago, because I’m not the one who was left the insurance policy.”
Her remarks come after Kim and Khloe Kardashian attacked Ellen for the tabloid story which accuses Robert Kardashian’s former wife, Kris Jenner, of child abuse.
She provided Robert Kardashian’s alleged journal to In Touch, and in it he supposedly claims Kris Jenner, 57, kicked, beat and threatened to kill Kim as their 12-year marriage collapsed.
However, both Kim and Khloe Kardashian took to Twitter on Thursday to slam and discredit Ellen.
Khloe Kardashian tweeted: “How can such a piece of trash even mention my father’s name. You married him on his death bed when he was not even aware of his surroundings.
“You should be hiding in shame for all of the lies you sell to the tabloids.
“You have no right to even mention our names especially my mother’s! We don’t know you!!! How dare you spread such lies! You are a disgrace.
“10 years after my father’s passing & now that she has filed for bankruptcy…NOW she sells FALSE stories. Hope that money buys you water in hell.”
Kim Kardashian , 32, who is expecting her first child with Kanye West, also blasted Ellen, tweeting: “10 yrs since dad passed & this woman he married 4 wks before he died needs to get a job instead of trying to destroy my family w fake stories.”
Kourtney Kardashian’s fiance Scott Disick tried to add some levity to the situation after Ellen claimed Kris Jenner tried to beat and threatened Kim.
Scott Disick wrote: “She’s def threatened to kill me, but who hasn’t.”
Kris Jenner’s close bond with all of her children has been documented over the years on E! reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
Kris Jenner also acts as a “momager” to her Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Robert Kardashian as well as her two children with Bruce Jenner, Kendall and Kylie.
Ellen married Robert Kardashian, a lawyer who represented OJ Simpson, in 2003 just two months before his death, after dating for nearly six years.
Ellen Kardashian has previously claimed her late husband was not the biological father of Khloe Kardashian.
