The famous Kardashian clan has faced a lot of scandal and tabloid scrutiny over the past few months, thanks in no small part to Kim Kardashian and her high-profile divorce. But now little sis Khloé Kardashian Odom is the one making headlines after rumors began to circulate that she’s not biologically a Kardashian.
According to RadarOnline/Star magazine, both the ex-wife and widow of Robert Kardashian, the late patriarch of the Kardashian family, are claiming that Robert expressed doubts that he was Khloé’s biological father.
“Khloé is not his kid — he told me that after we got married,” said Jan Ashley, Robert’s ex-wife. “He just kind of looked at me and said [it] like it was a matter of fact. He said, ‘Well, you know that Khloé’s not really a Kardashian, don’t you?’ And I said … ‘OK,’ and that was it.”
Ellen Kardashian, who married Robert two months before his death in 2003, shared even more details about this new Kardashian scandal.
“Khloé brought it up all the time,” Ellen told Star. “She looked nothing like the rest. She was tall, had a different shape, light hair, curly hair. Didn’t look anything like the other three children.”
In her new book, Kris Jenner… And All Things Kardashian, Robert’s famous ex-wife, Kris Jenner, revealed that she cheated on Robert during their marriage, a fact that Robert and his subsequent wives were well aware of. But Ellen also claims that Robert told her that he and Kris weren’t even having sex when she conceived Khloé.
“Robert did question the fact that Khloé was his. Any normal man would if they knew their wife had cheated on him,” said Ellen. “[But] he never would have considered a DNA test. He loved her very much.”
However, on Jan. 10, Khloé responded to the shocking allegations via Twitter, claiming that they are all lies and chastised Ellen and Ashley.
“The audacity you have to mention my father’s name like this! Should be ashamed of urself! I let a lot of things slide but this one is really low … YOU ARE DISGUSTING! (yes you know who YOU are),” Khloé tweeted.
Well, we’ll see how this scandal ends, but considering the current tabloid trend for the Kardashians, this certainly won’t be the last time they’re in the news for negative reasons. And while the jury is still out on whether Khloé really is a Kardashian, these five other celebs below are adopted. –nicholas robinson
