Friends told Oppenheimer about how he was “totally turned on” by the 1975 movie “The Stepford Wives.” “[It] was the model for Robert’s marriage to Kris,” said Migdal. “[She] was coming home at 2 and 3 in the morning drunk, and she would tell Robert, ‘I have four kids and I have not lived life.’ ” (Son Rob was born in 1987.) Kris began seeing a soccer player, Todd Waterman, introducing him as her boyfriend at parties and paying his bills with Robert’s money.
According to another friend, “He had a fantasy about being able to dominate women.” As a way of grooming his high school-educated bride, Robert gave her self-help audiotapes to teach her how to throw a party and decorate for the holidays. Robert had sold one of his businesses, the trade publication Radio & Records, “for a bundle.” But with the 1984 arrival of their third child, Khloé, the couple couldn’t ignore an elephant in the room: They hadn’t had sex during the time she had to have been conceived. she is my child.” Years later, his two subsequent wives — Jan Ashley and Ellen Pierson — attested that Robert claimed that Khloé wasn’t his biological daughter. Despite all the blessings — and bling — of a charmed Beverly Hills life, she became “bored and rebellious.” After getting a new pair of breasts, she reportedly decided she wanted freedom. Waterman recalled that a young Khloé would go with them on dates: “She’d be in the back seat of the car.” Once, after Kris told her husband that Waterman was her tennis instructor, the two played on the Kardashian court while Robert watched.
Once they shared bank accounts, she would rebel against his prior constraints by becoming monstrously extravagant.
When she dropped three grand on a single belt, her husband was apoplectic: “Can you f – – king believe that? ” Where he failed to mold Priscilla into the perfect submissive housewife, Robert was determined to succeed with young Kris.
As Jack Spradlin, a friend of Sanudo’s, said: “[Kris] saw a far better financial opportunity with Kardashian than with Cesar.” Still, Robert thought Kris was too young for things to be serious, and soon dumped her for Priscilla Presley.
