Khloe Kardashian is laughing off the most recent tabloid story regarding who her real father is, saying she’s almost lost count of her number of fathers.
The latest? Lionel Richie is her real father, a rumor she obviously denies.
Khloe tells Gossip Cop, “I’ve had so many dads my head is spinning lol.”
At least she has a sense of humor about it, even if she’s half serious. At least three people, by our count, have been falsely pegged in the role of late.
This has, ridiculously, been a recurring theme over at In Touch, which makes the subject of Khloe’s paternity a surprisingly regular topic of discussion.
While we all love good celebrity gossip, there’s something inherently desperate about making things up out of thin air, then recycling them over and over to boot.
In early 2013, Alex Roldan was rumored to be Khloe’s biological father, an allegation the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star decried as shameless.
Perhaps the most notorious fake Khloe father is O.J. Simpson.
Before the aforementioned cited Richie as Kardashian’s dad this week, Simpson’s alleged prison lover said O.J. is Khloe’s father, having slept with Kris Jenner.
O.J.’s friend and confidant Robert Kardashian Sr. divorced Kris, with whom he had four children (yes, including Khloe), in 1991. He passed away in 2003.
Those two at least had some connection. It’s unclear where the tabloid even came up with Richie, but Khloe has cleared it up for us, not that we needed her to.
Consider this paternal mystery solved by Khloe, Gossip Cop and common sense … at least until the next time their editors are lacking for a cover story.
At least Khloe’s siblings can relate to the tabloid nonsense frenzy …
