How Much Money Did Robert Kardashian Leave For His Children?
Kardashian is rumored to have left his children a huge $100 million estate in trust. Not much is known about the exact details of his will, making it hard to verify the said amount. But according to TV presenter and an old friend of the Kardashian matriarch, Kathie Lee Gifford, the family experienced financial struggles. “Kris was having financial problems,” Gifford told People. I loaned Kris money years ago because he needed it. They were really struggling.” She was the one who suggested that the family did a reality show.
This is when reality television was just getting a hold,” said the TV personality. “I told Kris, ‘You guys of all people in the world should have a reality series. You should, it’s made for your beautiful children. You and [then-wife Caitlyn Jenner] at this point now are so interesting.’ Their dynamic was so interesting.

It was obviously a brilliant idea. The reality show was a huge success and ran for twenty seasons. The Kardashian family has since continued their show on the streaming service Hulu, rebranding the title to ‘’The Kardashians’’.
