Is Lionel Richie Khloé K's real father?


Whether you buy into the rumours of Kris Jenner and Lionel Richie's affair or not, there's no denying Khloé bears a striking resemblance to Lionel Ritchie's teenage daughter.

A recent report that Kris had a "steamy affair" with Lionel in the '80s has sent the Hollywood gossip mill into overdrive that the All Night Long singer may actually be Khloé's biological father.

In Touch Weekly recently reported that the duo "had a sexual affair" while Kris was married to Robert Kardashian Snr. A source told the tabloid Lionel even bragged about his extramarital activities with Kris in his hit, Dancing On The Ceiling. Lionel “was on the outs with his wife at the time, everyone was sleeping around with everyone else back then, and Kris was hot in those days."

Kris will never tell Khloé the truth about Lionel, the source said, as there is "too much at stake."

The insider added that Sofia, Lionel's 16-year-old biological daughter with ex-wife Diane Alexander, "looks like she could be Khloé's little sister."

Khloe, however, has laughed off the rumours. “I’ve had so many dads my head is spinning,” she said of the report.

In a 2009 episode of her family's infamous reality show, Keeping up with the Kardashians, Khloé admitted she had thought about undergoing DNA tests.
