Is Lionel Richie Khloe Kardashian's Dad?
Poor old Khloé Kardashian. When Team Ahlan! met up with her last week, we had no idea that she was about to be at the centre of yet another scandal caused by her mum, Kris Jenner. The 30-year-old star hit the headlines when it was claimed she could be the daughter of veteran soul singer Lionel Richie.
Suffering in Silence
It's not the first time KoKo's paternity has been questioned, but this time around there seems to be compelling evidence to support the allegations that the late Robert Kardashian wasn't her dad. According to a friend of the Kardashians, Lionel and Kris were really very close to one another back in the Eighties and, even though Kris was apparently friendly with a lot of guys during that time, Lionel was the one she most enjoyed seeing. A source told InTouch magazine: "They had an affair – he bragged about it. He said he was on the outs with his wife at the time. Everyone was with everyone else back then, and Kris was hot in those days." The insider added that in those days it was quite common for Kris to have extramarital affairs and Rob knew exactly what his wife was getting up to, but suffered in silence. Although none of the Kardashian clan has commented on this latest paternity conundrum, Kris did admit to cheating on her former hubby with at least one guy in her autobiography, Kris Jenner and All Things Kardashian. She wrote: "I don't know why I was having a mid-life crisis at 30, but I was."
Khloé's Got a DoppelgÄnger
While Khloé shares many characteristics with her sisters Kourtney and Kim, namely enjoying being a famous socialite and living life in the fab lane, questions have often arisen about why her looks are so different. With their tanned skin and dark features, Kim and Kourtney resemble both each other and their parents, but Khloé looks rather different. She does, however, have more than a passing resemblance to Lionel's 16-year-old daughter, Sofia. A source told InTouch: "Sofia looks like she could be Khloé's little sister. Kris had an affair with Lionel and I believe he is Khloé's dad." The insider added: "Kris was a big flirt and played around. I've seen her do things that would blow people away. Lionel was a huge player back then, too." The Hello singer isn't the only man who's been accused of being Khloé's dad. Kris' hairdresser of 30 years, Alex Roldan, and infamous former sports star OJ Simpson have previously been implicated. Despite this, Khloé has spoken out about the saga and brushed off the rumours, stating: "I've had so many dads my head is spinning!"
KhloÉ's Desperate for a Baby
The star feels her biological clock is ticking
The problems just keep on mounting for Khloé. Her world has been rocked by the latest paternity allegations, but the curvy star is also battling with pangs for motherhood. According to those close to her, the 30-year-old is desperate for a baby.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians player, who's currently going through the process of divorcing Lamar Odom, is worried she's running out of time to have a child of her own and wants to fall in love again soon. A source told HollywoodLife.com: "She wants to be in love again. She wants a family. She doesn't want to be pigeonholed as the best aunt in the world. She loves her nieces and nephew but there's nothing like being a mother. She wants that, and it's like, here she goes again being the dutiful and proud aunt." The brunette beauty is reportedly envious of her sisters Kourtney, who has children Mason, five, Penelope, two, plus another on the way, as well as with Kim, who has 16-month-old daughter North with her husband Kanye West, because their families seem to be "thriving."
The source explained: "She's happy for Kourtney and Kim but she's sad inside because everyone around her is thriving and living and she's stuck. Her life sucks right about now." Meanwhile, it's thought Khloé is back in contact with her estranged husband, whom she married in 2009, following her recent split from rapper French Montana. A source said previously: "After months of not talking, she's been calling Lamar. Ever since the split, Khloé's been super-sad and really missing Lamar, so she decided to reach out. Lamar was so happy to hear from her." Khloé ended her relationship with the basketball star last year following rumours he'd cheated on her with multiple women and had an addiction to narcotics.
