Kim Kardashian has remembered her late dad on what would have been his 79th birthday.
Robert Kardashian, most known for his work as one of OJ Simpson’s lawyers, died in 2003 at the age of 59, following a battle with esophageal cancer.
The Skims businesswoman has spoken many times of wanting to follow in his footsteps with her own budding legal career.
Taking to Twitter, the 42-year-old shared a string of photos and videos of the patriarch, revealing how much she misses him and ‘needs him’ right now.
‘Happy Birthday Dad – it’s almost getting to the point where I’ve had to remember you longer than I’ve known you,’ she began. ‘This year will be 20 years since we’ve celebrated your birthday here on earth.
‘But I will take it because I had the best dad in the whole wide world and am so lucky I had 22 years with you!
‘There’s so much I wanna tell you and show you and so many little humans I wish you knew because God you would love them so much!
‘I can close my eyes and hear your voice and remember the funniest little things about you that make me so happy. I’ll never ever let that go [sic] .’
She concluded the post: ‘I just really miss you and kinda need you right now. Please come to me in a dream soon. I love you so much happy 79th birthday! Jouge [sic] .’
Robert shared Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob with ex-wife Kris Jenner, and died in 2003, just months after he was diagnosed with cancer.
Kim has been open about wanting to follow in his footsteps with her law career, revealing that she would sneak into his office to review paperwork during the OJ case.
‘I think that by the time I was a teenager and he was working on the O.J. case, I was sneaking in his office, looking at all of the evidence and things I shouldn’t have been looking at,’ she said in 2020 at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, via Us Weekly.
