Well, this has put an end to that one.
Lionel Richie has officially, on the record, refuted claims that he is Khloe Kardashian’s real dad.
The ‘Hello’ singer was relatively chilled out about the accusations that he had a secret lovechild with Kris Jenner, simply saying: “No, of course not,” when confronted.
He then added: “But you know what, they are my kids. They are my kids, they grew up in my house.
“I’m not the dad. But I would adopt her!”
Lionel is of course referencing the fact that the Kardashian and Richie children were pretty close when they were growing up, with Kim Kardashian even sharing this pretty bloomin’ amazing throwback of herself and Nicole Richie when they were gawky teens.
An absolute classic.
The rumours about Lionel being the daddy started last week when a friend of the star told InTouch that he and Kris Jenner had been rather *ahem* enjoying each others company back in the day, despite both being married.
The friend revealed: “They had a sexual affair – he bragged about it. He said he 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.”
And to add insult to injury, the ‘insider’ hinted that Khloe bore more than a passing resemblance to Lionel’s 16-year-old daughter, Sofia.
OHMYGOD… THEY DO LOOK SIMILAR! WTF?!
But despite the UNCANNY similarity Khloe was quick to laugh off the rumours, telling Gossip Cop: “I’ve had so many dads my head is spinning.”
The 30-year-old has been plagued with rumours that the late Robert Kardashian was not her dad after her mum revealed in her autobiography ‘Kris Jenner and All Things Kardashian’ that she wasn’t exactly faithful to Rob around the time that Khloe was conceived.
She wrote: “I don’t know why I was having a mid-life crisis at 30, but I was. His name was Ryan, and he was a producer. We had wild sex everywhere, all the time.”
Yeah, a little bit TMI there, Kris.
In 2012, Kris tried to get Khloe to take a paternity test on their show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
The momager really will do ANYTHING to cash in.
On the show Kris said: “I know all the rumours are absolutely ridiculous, but I know this is something she needs in order to feel complete.”
Khloe eventually snapped, telling her mum that she doesn’t care about the rumours, adding: “Seriously, my dad is Robert Kardashian. My other dad is Bruce Jenner.
“If you f***ed other people during the same time and you do not know, go on Maury!”
She then wrote her mum a heartfelt letter about why she feels so strongly about not needing to take a paternity test, in the letter she said: “I don’t need someone to tell me who my family is.
“I have had the blessing of having two phenomenal fathers. I don’t need a DNA test to prove who my father is.”
You can’t deny, that’s a pretty great attitude to have.
