Robert Kardashian was an attorney and businessman, best known for working as O.J. Simpson’s defence attorney during Simpson’s notorious 1995 murder trial. It was from Robert that the sisters inherited their Armenian ancestry while California-born mother Kris is of English, French, German, Scottish and Dutch descent.  Kris and Robert divorced in 1991 and later that year she married 1976 Summer Olympics Decathlon winner Bruce Jenner.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Kourtney attended Roman Catholic all-girls school, Marymount High School. After she graduated from high school she moved to Texas, where she attended Southern Methodist University, before moving to Arizona where she graduated from University with a degree in Theatre Arts and Spanish.

In 2003 Kourtney’s father Robert was diagnosed with oesophageal cancer and died later that year. A year later she starred on reality-television series, Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive, earning money for charity. In 2007 her sister Kim’s sex tape was, erm, ‘leaked,’ which elevated the whole family and brought them directly into the spotlight. Following the release of the tape, the Kardashians began their own reality TV series, the now long-running Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The series was so popular that it led to a string on spin-off shows, Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, Khloe & Lamar and Kourtney and Kim Take New York.

Kourtney began an on-again-off-again relationship with Scott Disick in 2007. In 2010, after Kardashian suspected Disick has a problem with alcohol, he attended rehab, temporarily quitting drinking, and the pair reunited midway through the year. Disick planned to propose in 2011, purchasing a ring for Kardashian as seen on Kourtney and Kim Take New York. However, when he raised the subject of marriage with her, she replied “if things are so good now…why would we want to change that?” Disick decided against proposing.
