The problem is my kids are liberal, maybe too liberal, and I have no one to blame but myself because I introduced them to Uncle O. and others, and they always felt comfortable with them.''It was my sense, my perception that Robert would have preferred Kimmy to be with a white guy,' the close friend said. was often on the outs with his first wife because of his womanizing with mostly young, white women, he roomed with Kardashian and Kardashian's older brother, Tom, in their Beverly Hills bachelor pad.Robert Kardashian is said to have 'gone ballistic' after learning Kim eloped with her first husband Damon Thomas in 2000 because he preferred his daughter to date white men, according to The Kardashians: An American Drama Kardashian reportedly became upset about his daughter's interracial relationship because O. - who he famously defended for the murder of Nicole Brown (pictured) - always bragged about 'getting white p***y' He quietly blamed himself for bringing his close friend O. Simpson into his family circle, thus making his children 'too liberal' about race relations, according to a close friend. In 2000, Kim secretly married music producer Damon Thomas, the first of her three African-American husbands, when she was 20 years old.

The two later became partners in a succession of unsuccessful businesses. J.,' and one of Kim's first acts as a newborn was to throw up on O. Kris Jenner, pledged in a memoir that she always 'loved O.Since the inception of their reality TV series, the Kardashians' personal lives have been anything but private - including their high-profile, sometimes scandalous interracial relationships.It was Kim's infamous sex tape with then-boyfriend Ray J that thrust her into the limelight a decade ago - which was preceded and followed by three turbulent marriages.A Kardashian insider told me: 'Robert would be rolling over in his grave.I think he firmly believed that the black guys he knew like O. strictly went after white women for sex, and that angered him.'But Robert was definitely not a racist. Kim, her siblings and mother Kris, firmly believed O. had been Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman's killer and were furious that Kardashian help get him acquitted. He only learned about Kim's secret marriage when her older sister, Kourtney, squealed.'Kim keeping her marriage a secret from her father was devastating to Robert, too.It was such a drama.'Not long after Denice left, Robert ended it with Shawn.'Robert realized that because Shawn wasn't white that he couldn't get really serious with her, and that was the part where he had to give her up,' a Kardashian friend told me. He just knew he could never give Shawn a commitment the way she wanted it because of her race.'Over the years since her break up with Kardashian, Shawn has become one of Los Angeles's power lawyers to the stars, and her connection with the Kardashian name continued. Kardashian later tried convincing movie theaters to play pop music by name stars, and O. Rumors had circulated for years that Kris had had an affair with O. " And he finally answered me and he said, "I don't see any difference between Jesus and Buddha and these other guys."'That was O. But, he still came, I think, in deference to Bob.' He soon came to think of the football hero as a 'narcissistic jerk and viewed him as a self-loathing black man who wanted to be white. 'Shawn was devastated because she really loved Robert, and I think he really loved her much more so than he loved Denice.

With all the interracial stuff going on, all humans will probably be beige in about a hundred years anyway (thank you, Russell Peters) and this argument will be long moot.Kardashian had suddenly fallen head over heels for Shawn Chapman Holley, the African-American attorney who was assisting lead attorney Johnny Cochran in O. She was a member of his prestigious Los Angeles firm, the Law Offices of Johnnie L. The relationship was so intense that Kardashian even broke up with his beautiful, blonde and buxom live-in fianceé, Denice Shakarian Halicki, who was his third cousin. When she asked him what the impact of the trial had been on him personally he responded that its toll included the loss of Denice, suggesting that the strains and stresses of the trial had been too much for them to bear as a couple. But there was nothing about the lawyers' secret romance in the program or in the book, written by Jeffrey Toobin, on which the show was based.

Only a very few in Kardashian's close circle knew about their love affair.'I am absolutely positive that Shawn would want that part of her life with Robert kept secret. But he had lied to America's then-premier celebrity interviewer. It was a big secret, and they were very careful,' a source with knowledge of the romance told me. But my investigation showed there's no truth to any of that. Kim's one-time boyfriend Reggie Bush hired her, and other clients included Michael Jackson, Axl Rose, Snoop Dogg, and Lindsay Lohan.
