Robert Arthur "Rob" Kardashian (born March 17, 1987) is an American television personality and businessman. He is best known for appearing on reality television shows that center upon his family, such as Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Khloé & Lamar. Kardashian also competed in the thirteenth season of Dancing with the Stars, during which he placed second.

Early life

Kardashian[1] was born March 17, 1987[2] in Los Angeles, California, United States to attorney Robert Kardashian and wife Kris. He has three older sisters, Kourtney, Kim, and Khloé. His parents divorced in 1991, and his mother married Olympic decathlete Caitlyn Jenner (then known as Bruce Jenner) the same year. Together Kris and Caitlyn had daughters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, making them Rob's half-sisters. Rob's father, Robert Kardashian, died in September 2003 from esophageal cancer.[3]

Kardashian graduated from the University of Southern California's Marshall School of Business in 2009.[4][5]

Career

Kardashian was a contestant on season 13 of Dancing with the Stars in 2011. He was paired with two-time champion Cheryl Burke and made it further than his sister, Kim, did during her appearance in the 7th season. Kardashian was almost eliminated in the fourth week. During the season, Kardashian became the most improved dancer, advancing with his partner Cheryl Burke to the finals, her fifth time doing so. The pair ended up in second place against J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff.[6]

Kardashian has also taken on several business ventures working with PerfectSkin, Rival Spot, the BG5 and working on his own sock line. Kardashian was one of the final judges of Miss USA 2012.[7]

Kardashian announced in August 2012 that he would return to the University of Southern California and study law later in the year. USC's Gould School of Law, however, denied this, and stated via its Twitter account that Kardashian had not even applied to the school.[8]

In 2012, Kardashian participated in Fox's dating game show The Choice.[9]

In late 2012, he launched his sock line titled Arthur George.[10][11]

Personal life

Kardashian dated actress Adrienne Bailon from 2007 until 2009. Their relationship was documented on the family reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. After months of speculation in October 2012, Kardashian confirmed through his Twitter account that he and Rita Ora were dating. In December 2012, it was revealed that their relationship had ended.[12][13]
