Khloe Kardashian’s parents may have divorced when she was a teen, but her father, Robert Kardashian, remained a major part of the Kardashian / Jenner family’s life long after the split.

Khloe posted a photo of her late father to Instagram, in which he holds her half-sisters, Kylie and Kendall Jenner on his lap, grinning ear to ear.

“TBT my daddy and my babies @kendalljenner@kyliejenner,” Khloe captioned the cute picture.

In a post on her blog, Khloe revealed of her father’s close relationship with the Jenner family, “I was seriously the luckiest girl in the world growing up because I had two amazing dads who not only loved us kids more than anything, but adored each other as well … 'My dad and Bruce were always really close — Kendall and Kylie even called my dad Uncle Robert which I loved.”

In fact, Robert remained so dedicated to his family following his divorce from Kris Jenner that he and his ex-wife talked multiple times a day prior his death from esophageal cancer in 2003.

While Khloe’s paternity has been the subject of speculation for many years now, it seems as though her father never wavered in his belief that Khloe was his biological daughter.

Despite Robert’s widow’s assertion that Khloe is “not really a Kardashian,” Robert never once made mention of it in court papers, and always referred to his youngest daughter as his biological child.

“It is a complete waste of time to address these reports every time they print these ridiculous and absurd tabloid stories, but not only are these stories untrue, they’re also unfair to the people who buy the magazines expecting to read accurate reports,” said Khloe of the paternity claims. “These blatant lies are distasteful and shameless.”
