Rob Surprises Family with Tribute to Dad
October 04, 2011
Bruce Jenner has occupied the role of patriarch over the Kardashian/Jenner clan for more than twenty years, however many are not as familiar with Kourtney, Kim, Khloé & Rob's late father Robert. On Monday's personal theme night of Dancing with the Stars, Rob paid tribute to his father which he admits he kept as a secret from his family until showtime.
"It definitely was [emotional]," Rob said of the performance. Dancing the foxtrot to Sinatra's classic Fly Me to the Moon was a decision he made because it was his father's favorite, and he "only [has] happy memories" when he hears it.
Rob tells The Insider's Brooke Anderson he got a quick glance at his mother and sister Kim after the routine, and it was clear they we're moved by his surprise performance.
"I didn't tell them what I was dancing to or what I was wearing or anything so they were surprised and I'm sure very happy and emotional. It was good. They were smiling."
Watch the video to hear more from Rob and more celebs on their personal theme night dance, including what Kristin Cavallari had to say about having ex-fiancé Jay Cutler in the audience as she performed.
