The affair apparently ended in 1990, just before Kris, then 34, met her now-husband Bruce Jenner.
Kris, who is judging this year's Miss America pageant, allegedly split from Robert Kardashian after he followed his philandering wife and found her in the arms of animator Todd.
The O.J. Simpson lawyer was reportedly so distraught at his wife's infidelity that the court awarded Kris with temporary custody of their children, because they believed him to be a potential threat.

And the lawyer apparently punished Kris by cancelling all her credit cards and luxuries, according to court documents published by Radar Online.
He then believed her to be flaunting her new relationship with Bruce Jenner inappropriately, saying: 'I ask the court to enjoin and restrain (Kris) from living with any member of the opposite sex in or about the presence of our children.'
Kris counteracted by stating that her husband 'emotionally abuses' her, claiming that the effect on their children was profound: 'As a result of (Robert) and my irreconcilable differences, there is a tremendous amount of discord at the family residence.'

He added: 'To me, it ties into what they have already done in terms of picking and choosing what they release and how they are portrayed.'
