Kardashian fans confused over Kylie Jenner's 'strange' name for Kim, Khloe and Kourtney's late father Robert | The Sun

KARDASHIAN fans are scratching their heads after Kylie Jenner referred to Robert, Sr. as "uncle."

Kris Jenner's first husband would have turned 79 on Wednesday.

Although Kylie has no biological link to the late attorney, she still referred to him as family.

Kylie's dad was Bruce Jenner, who was married to momager Kris after her divorce from Robert.

But Kylie, 25, showed her famous sisters a sign of support as she shared a photo of him to her own Instagram stories, adding the caption: "Happy birthday, Uncle Robert."

In a Reddit chat room, some fans were confused by the moniker.

"Uncle Rob?" one person asked.

Another stated: "It’s odd to me."

While a third joked: "Not Kylie calling Robert Kardashian uncle!" and then added several laughing emojis.


Robert passed away in September 2003.

On what would have been his birthday, his daughter Kim Kardashian shared a note of love online.

"Happy Birthday Dad- it’s almost getting to the point where I’ve had to remember you longer than I’ve known you," she shared on Instagram.

Kim was just 22 years old at the time of her father’s passing.

The Kardashians star continued: "It's been 20 years since we’ve celebrated your birthday here on earth.

"But I will take it because I had the best dad in the whole wide world and am so lucky I had 22 years with you!"

She confessed: "There’s so much I wanna tell you and show you and so many little humans I wish you knew because God you would love them so much!"

The Skims founder revealed: "I can close my eyes and hear your voice and remember the funniest little things about you that make me so happy."

Kim then mentioned: "I’ll never ever let that go."


In a heartbreaking conclusion to the letter, the mother-of-four stated: "I just really miss you and kinda need you right now."

She then requested that her father "come to me in a dream soon" before adding, "I love you so much happy 79th birthday!"

Kim signed the letter "Jouge," which is the nickname given to her by her father.

The video showcased recorded VHS footage of Robert with Kim, Kourtney, 43, Khloe, 38, Rob Kardashian, 35, as well as their mother and his ex-wife, Kris Jenner, 67.

Backed by the Luther Vandross hit song Dance with My Father, the recording featured moments from when the SKKN founder was a toddler until her teenage years.
