The plot thickens in Kris Jenner’s reality show before her reality show! Allegations surfaced online this week that Khloe Kardashian may not be Robert Kardashian’s daughter as we have been led to believe. With the paternity rumors garnering so much attention, the media spotlight began to focus on Kris Jenner’s affair with a “boy toy” in the 1980s, something she revealed in her recently published autobiography, Kris Jenner And All Things Kardashian.
In her book, Kris refers to her sex besty as “Ryan,” but according to an article in the upcoming issue of Star magazine, his real name is Todd Waterman (above) – an animator and former professional soccer player for the Los Angeles Heat.
“It was scandalous,” Todd tells Star. “We dated for a year and a half. I was playing pro soccer and I was training with a team, L.A. Heat, for a now defunct league. That’s how we met.”
Todd Waterman, who was 24 at the time the affair began, has since left his professional soccer dream behind (Yes, I searched, and searched, and searched for a photo of Todd with the Los Angles Heat – to no avail.) and is now a big time animator with a resume that includes Mulan, All Dogs Go to Heaven 2, Anastasia, Stuart Little, and Transformers Prime.
Here is a photo of Todd Waterman in December, 2011 doing a DVD signing for Transformers Prime: Darkness Rising:

Kris Jenner’s chapter about “Ryan” (Todd) in Kris Jenner And All Things Kardashian reads like a Harlequinn Romance. Here is how she describes their first meeting:
I walked into my friend’s house alone. There was a party in progress. I met a guy there. I had seen him around. He was part of a group of people who were always at this one friend’s house. He had been at all of the barbecues and parties, but I hadn’t paid him much attention. I actually had thought he was really arrogant, and I’m sure he knew I was married.
His name was Ryan, and he was a producer. He looked like Rob Lowe. For a second, I thought he was Rob Lowe. He was so cute: young, dark hair, great body. We started talking. We talked and talked, laughed and laughed. Fun, fun, fun. No one had paid that much attention to me in forever.

Later at the party, Kris was sent upstairs to fetch a music player and Ryan followed. The two wound up kissing. “That kiss was more than amazing; it was like a revival, a resuscitation, an awakening from some long, deep, unconscious sleep. I hadn’t been kissed like that in ten years. It made me feel young, attractive, sexy, and alive.”
Kris was confused about her feelings for Ryan, and of course the only one she felt comfortable talking about it with was… Ryan! So the two met up at Ryan’s Studio City apartment where they began kissing again.
The next thing I knew I was in his bed with the sheets flying. As it had been with the first kiss, I felt like I was being awakened from a long and deep sleep. The difference between the kiss at the party and this one was that the next time I opened my eyes I was in the middle of a raging affair. Wild crazy sex all the time, sex everywhere we could think of. We had sex in cars, sex on the tennis court, sex in the pool house, sex in the garage when we got home, sex up and down the stairs, sex everywhere, all the time. It was out of control, crazy, dangerous. Wild.
Kris Jenner’s husband Robert would eventually catch on to what was going on and he was furious. According to the divorce and child support documents recently revealed by Radar Online, Robert Kardashian was so angered by the discovery of Kris Jenner’s affair with Todd Waterman that the court awarded Kris temporary custody of the kids because it feared Robert was a threat to his family.
“This is true,” Robert states in the documents. “It was true that I was very upset when I found out the respondent was having an affair and I wanted a divorce.”

As you are probably aware, Kris and Robert Kardashian would eventually get divorced and within two months Kris remarried to Bruce Jenner. Where were all the cameras back then?!? This is actual, real stuff happening – much better than all the contrived non-plots on Keeping Up With The Kardashians!
As far as the connection between Todd Waterman and Khloe Kardashian, the timleine does not support the possibility of him being Khloe’s father. Khloe was born in 1984 and Kris’s affair with Todd Waterman did not begin (allegedly) until 1989.
So what does Todd Waterman think about the fact that Kris would include him in her book, a fact he was unaware of until recently? “To me, it (my partial inclusion in the book) ties into what they have already done in terms of picking and choosing what they release and how they are portrayed.” He continues, “The sex tape and the murder of their friend. It (the book) didn’t surprise me.”
And his opinion of the Kardashian family was one that seems to be matched by a growing number of former supporters. “I am not a fan of the whole Kardashian machine,” he says.
Want to know exactly what Todd was hot for back in 1989? Be sure to check out Kris Jenner’s indescribable homemade video “I Love My Friends” from 1985, which includes a umber of celebrity guest appearances, including everyone’s least favorite professional football player named for a fruit drink! (***WARNING*** Video is like that worm from Star Trek: The Wrath Of Khan – it burrows into your brain and devours it. Painfully. You have to see it!)
UPDATE: On the Keeping Up With the Kardashian’s episode that aired June 17, 2012, Kris Jenner ran into Todd Waterman again while getting tennis lessons. Awkward!
She says “I was really crazy about Todd, and Todd was really crazy about me. But, I think that Todd was very, very young, and probably too young to settle down with one person.”
They talked awkwardly at the tennis place, but then Kris told her whole family, and seemed like she wanted to talk to him again. When they hugged, Todd had said “I don’t want to let go.” She also gave him her assistant’s email address, which he, of course, emailed, calling her a pet name: “Snooka.”
