She packed her album with a slew of throwback snaps recounting her warm relationship with Cici over the years.

Their connection was able to survive even after Kris had an infamously acrimonious divorce from Cici’s cousin and fell out with the rest of his family.

On a 2017 Christmas special for Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kim revealed that Cici was the only person in their father’s family with whom they stayed close.

In fact, Cici’s strong bonds to Kris and her children caused the rest of Robert’s family to become distant from her, Kim said on the special, according to Life And Style.

The flashback pictures Kris posted this Saturday show her tight camaraderie with Cici lasting through the decades across a string of hairdos and fashion trends.

A couple of pictures also included Kris’ close pal Faye Resnick, who first entered the public sphere with her back in the 1990s.

She and Kris rose into the media’s glare when their friend Nicole Brown Simpson was slaughtered in a brutal double-murder along with waiter Ron Goldman in 1994.

So sweet: 'I love you so much and wish you the most amazing year yet!!!'  Kris wrote, throwing in a string of festive emoji at the end

Kris’ ex-husband Robert was part of the legal ‘dream team’ of Nicole’s ex-husband OJ Simpson, who was controversially acquitted of killing her and Ron.

Shortly after the murders, Faye worked with a National Enquirer columnist to release a book about Nicole that flew off the shelves and was slated by New York Magazine as ‘the best-selling apotheosis of trashiness.’

Meanwhile Kris at the time was married to the former Olympian then known as Bruce Jenner, who has since transitioned into Caitlyn.

Her marriage to Robert had imploded years earlier in the wake of Kris’ infidelity with a sizzling soccer player called Todd Waterman.

Todd told the MailOnline the romance was ‘crazy and passionate’ with sexual liaisons ‘Outdoors and indoors,’ while Kris in her memoirs gave him the pseudonym Ryan and dished that they had ‘Wild crazy sex all the time.’

He was nearly a decade younger than Kris whom he described as ‘generous’ with him financially. ‘She was paying a lot, or it was Robert I guess.’

Both Kris and Todd recalled that Robert hired private detectives to smoke out their affair, and Todd allegedJ he got a call from O warning him off Kris.

According to Todd, he was driving a Jeep with Kris in the passenger’s seat when Robert confronted them and swung a golf club at the car.

He claimed Kris was terrified Robert had a gun so they set off on ‘this little high speed chase going on at rush hour,’ in Todd’s words.

A bitter divorce ensued, but Robert remained a doting father to his daughters until his tragic death of esophageal cancer at the age of 59 in 2003.

Cici herself underwent a long bout of cancer but Kim joyfully announced on Instagram last year that Cici was ‘officially cancer free after a few decades battle!’
