The widow of Kim Kardashian's father is making shocking new claims that Kris Jenner beat the kids and abandoned them for days at a time — even on Christmas — in favor of her lover.

Ellen Kardashian released what she claims are handwritten journal entries by the late attorney that paint an evil portrait of a mother who was careless at best and abusive at worst.

"Kris was kicking and beating her and said she was going to kill [Kim]!" reads an entry dated Aug. 24, 1989. "Kim was hysterical. Kris then got on the phone and said, 'Kim if you don't get up here right now you are dead!'"

Kim would have been 8 years old at the time.

The diary also makes damning claims that Kris would leave the kids, all under the age of 11 at the time, alone for days to share trysts with her young lover, former soccer player Todd Waterman.

"She doesn't leave a number in case of emergency. She doesn't care!" reads a Dec. 15, 1989, entry. "She left [the] kids and screwed all night!"

Ten days later, there are claims that "Kris couldn't get her act together" to spend Christmas with the family and that Robert "was home alone with 4 kids."

Kris admitted to the affair in her memoir Kris Jenner… And All Things Kardashian, but a rep for the famous family denies all the other claims. "We have no knowledge of these diaries existing and these accusations are ridiculous and not true," a spokesperson said.

But the widow, Ellen Kardashian, stands by the authenticity of the diaries, which she shared with InTouch.

"These are authentic handwritten journals I have shared, that my late husband Robert Kardashian so carefully wrote during 1989 and 1990 at a most trying and touching time of his life. They are my personal possessions and he left them to me on his passing."
