Second Wife of Robert Kardashian

Jan Ashley walked down the aisle with Robert Kardashian on November 25, 1998. While talking with Radar Online in 2014, Jan revealed that they first met in early 1998 while she was selling her house.

I was selling my house, and he came through it, and he saw my picture. He called one of my husband’s actors to have him introduced to me.

Soon they started dating and Robert proposed to her in Hawaii after seven months of dating. They got married soon after.

Unfortunately, their marriage didn’t last for more than a month. The pair separated and finalized their divorce in 1999.

Meanwhile, the legal documents that Robert filed in the court tell a different story. According to the document, Roberts’ disinterest in having a kid with Jan was the main reason for their separation. He also mentioned that they agreed to have a child together prior to getting married but he changed his mind later on.

Claimed Khloe Kardashian is not Robert’s Biological Child

Jan Ashley along with Robert’s third wife, Ellen Pierson, made headlines after they revealed that Khloe Kardashian wasn’t Rob’s biological daughter.

Khloe is not his kid – he told me that after we got married. He just kind of looked at me and said [it] like it was a matter of fact. He said, ‘Well, you know that Khloe’s not really a Kardashian, don’t you? And I said … ‘OK,’ and that was it.

The audacity you have to mention my father’s name like this! Should be ashamed of urself! I let a lot of things slide but this one is really low… YOU ARE DISGUSTING! (yes you know who YOU are).

However, in Robert’s court statement, he has acknowledged Khloe as his biological child.
