Khloe Kardashian Dismisses Parentage Rumors
In Touch Weekly has claimed that Khloe Kardashian's real father is singer Lionel Richie. It has been reported that Kardashian's mother, Kris Jenner, had an affair with Richie during her marriage to Robert Kardashian Sr., and that the singer has bragged about his trysts with the Kardashian-Jenner matriarch. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
Radar posted photos of Khloe and Richie's biological daughter, Sofia Richie, to show the striking resemblance between the two.
However, Khloe brushed off the rumors and told Gossip Cop, “I’ve had so many dads my head is spinning lol.”
Khloe's parentage has been questioned since 2012, when the National Enquirer claimed that O.J. Simpson was her biological father. It was alleged that Simpson had an affair with Kris Jenner and that Jenner and Kardashian Sr. were not having sexual contact around the time Khloe was conceived. Khloe's resemblance to Simpson's daughter, Sydney, did little to put the rumors to rest. Moreover, Simpson has not publicly denied the rumors.
Kardashian Sr., who was a practicing lawyer before dying of esophageal cancer in 2003, was close friends with Simpson and defended him in court when the latter was accused of the murders of Nicole Simpson and Ronald Goldman.
Khloe's sister, Kim, poked fun at the reports by tweeting: “Now we have all the answers! It makes sense now! Khloe u are so tan!” along with the National Enquirer's cover.
Kris Jenner also denied the rumors and claimed that she knows who the dad was.
“"I have never heard such crap in my life … I mean I was there. I gave birth. I know who the dad was. Everything is good,” said Jenner as published on Huffington Post.
It has been a rough year for Khloe, who recently broke up with French Montana amid rumors that the rapper was sending inappropriate text messages to her best friend, Malika Haqq. Her divorce to NBA player Lamar Odom has also been finalized despite Odom's attempts at reconciliation. Khloe was married to the athlete for four years and was rumored to have had difficulty conceiving.
