Kanye West gifts wife Kim Kardashian a hologram of her later father Robert for her 40th birthday


Kim Kardashian received what she described as ‘the most thoughtful gift of a lifetime’ from her husband Kanye West in celebration of her 40th birthday.

The gift happened to be a hologram of Kim’s late father Robert Kardashian, who tragically passed away from esophageal cancer in July of 2003 at the age of 59.

‘A special surprise from heaven. A hologram of my dad. ✨ It is so lifelike! We watched it over and over, filled with emotion,’ wrote the KUWTK star, who shared a video of the hologram with her Twitter followers on Thursday.

In a follow-up post, Kim wrote that she ‘can’t even describe what this meant to me and my sisters, my brother, my mom and closest friends to experience together.’

‘Thank you so much Kanye for this memory that will last a lifetime. Here’s a more close up view to see the incredible detail,’ concluded the KKW Beauty founder, who reupoaded the original clip in higher quality. 

The two-minute and 30-second video showed the late Kardashian patriarch rocking a beige suit jacket layered over a crisp white dress shirt as he seemingly spoke directly to Kim.

‘Happy Birthday Kimberly!’ greeted the hologram. ‘Look at you! You’re 40 and all grown up. You look beautiful just like when you were a little girl.

‘I watch over you and your sisters and brother and the kids everyday. Sometimes I drop hints that I’m around,’ noted hologram Robert, who made reference to something the Kardashian family refers to as a ‘big peefee.’ 

‘Remember when I would drive you to school in my tiny Mercedes everyday and we would listen to this song together,’ recalled Robert as he began to jive to the beat of the 1961 hit Who Put The Bomp by Barry Mann.

As the song played out, hologram Robert made frequent thumbs up and even attempted to sing along to some of the catchiest lyrics.

The Robert hologram then abruptly transitioned to a more serious tone as he delivered a heartfelt speech to Kim about how ‘proud’ he is of her and her accomplishments.

‘I am so proud of the woman you have become, Kimberly, and all that you’ve accomplished. All of your hard work, all of the businesses you have built are incredible.

‘But most impressive is your commitment to become a lawyer and and carry on my legacy,’ noted Robert with a smile and a tender hand on his heart.

‘It’s a long and a hard road, but it’s worth it. And I am with you every step of the way.’

He was referencing to Kim’s current four-year apprenticeship program at a well known California law firm, which she has already completed a year of, and her goal to take the bar exam in 2022.

Prior to his death, Robert worked as a successful lawyer in the Los Angeles area. Most famously, he was a legal member of the infamous ‘Dream Team’ that got football star and friend O.J. Simpson acquittal for double murder in 1995.
