Personal Life

Most of Ellen’s personal life details are private. Still, her relationship with Robert Kardashian can be considered one of the highlights of her life. When the couple started dating in the late 1990s, it made headlines. In 2001, Robert proposed to Ellen Pierson after about three years of dating. Their engagement lasted for over two years before the couple tied the knot in August 2003. She became his third wife.

Unfortunately, Robert’s health made their love affair to be a relatively short one. Ellen and Robert had known of his cancer diagnosis several weeks before they got married. The renowned American attorney, Robert Kardashian died six weeks after their marriage, on September 30, 2003. He died at the age of 59 from esophageal cancer.

Robert Kardashian had become famous after advocating for O.J. Simpson in his murder trial, which many people consider to be the trial of the century. Following Robert’s death, Simpson expressed his shock at the news of his death with CNN. He said, “It’s shocking when a friend close to you passes. I loved Bobby. Bob was there when I needed him most”.

After over ten years since Robert’s passing his ex-wife Kris Jenner, shared her experience after he was diagnosed with cancer with E! News. She said, “It was so surreal, the knowledge he had cancer was one thing, but to think it would actually take his life, I never in a million years thought that would happen to him.”

Ellen continued to live a lowkey life after the death of her husband. However, the real estate guru made headlines in the early 2010s, when she resurfaced with Robert’s second wife Jan, with claims that reality star Khloe Kardashian is not Robert’s biological daughter. The claims caused a series of controversies to unfold, and Ellen even engaged in a nasty verbal war with Khloe and Kim Kardashian. Ellen Pierson and Jan Ashley revealed their claims when they appeared in an interview with Star Magazine in January 2012.

The duo explained that Robert had doubts about being Khloe’s father toward his final years.

“Khloe is not his kid. He told me that after we got married.” Jan Ashley said to the magazine, adding that, “He just kind of looked at me and said [it] like it was a matter of fact. He said, ‘Well, you know that Khloe’s not really a Kardashian, don’t you?’ And I said…’OK,’ and that was it.”

On the other hand, Ellen told the magazine that, “Khloe brought it up all the time. She looked nothing like the rest. She was tall, had a different shape, light hair, curly hair. Didn’t look anything like the other three children.” They also added that Robert was aware of Kris’s infidelity during their marriage, and Ellen said that her late husband had told her that he wasn’t even sleeping with Kris when she got pregnant with Khloe. Ellen went on to add that Robert disregarded the idea of a DNA test because he loved Khloe very much.

Net worth

Following Robert’s death in 2003, Ellen Pierson was faced with several financial challenges.  As the situation worsened, she filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy in 2010. In October 2011, she had to sell her Indian Wells, California house that she had shared with Robert Kardashian because it was foreclosed.

More financial woes came her way in 2013, when his children and ex-wife, Kris Jenner filed a lawsuit over several heirlooms. The family claimed that Ellen Pierson had sold part of his diary/journal, and many other photos to tabloids for thousands of dollars.

Given her financial history, it is hard to speculate what her cash flow would be.

During her marriage to Robert Kardashian, Ellen is thought to have come into some wealth. During his lifetime, Robert Kardashian had estimated assets of about $15 million.
