khloe kardashianI never thought I’d be defending a Kardashian – or non-Kardashian, as it were – but the latest gossip is that Khloe is not really a Kardashian after all. Apparently her mom, Kris Jenner, was cheating on Robert Kardashian around the time that Khloe was conceived (she even writes about it in her book – surprise, surprise). So while Robert raised her, Khloe’s biological dad could be anyone, really.

Shit happens and such is life, but what’s really getting to me is the way a whole whack of grown women are blabbing to the press about Khloe’s identity without considering that this is a 27-year-old human being they’re talking about. They should know better!

The rumors started thanks to Robert Kardashian’s ex-wife and widow, both of whom revealed to Star magazine that the late Kardashian expressed his doubts about the paternity of Khloe. “Khloe is not his kid – he told me that after we got married,” said ex-wife Jan Ashley, 63.

Ellen Kardashian, 63, who dated Robert for nearly six years and married him mere months before his death in 2003, seconds that notion. “Khloe brought it up all the time. 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,” she said. “Robert did question the fact that Khloe was his. Any normal man would if they knew their wife had cheated on him.”

So assuming that this is all true – it’s not like Star magazine is known for its investigative journalism is all I’m saying – I truly feel for Khloe. Yes, she has chosen to maker her life public along with the rest of the klan. And, yes, there’s a chance she’s always known about her lineage. But even so, all this gossip is a dishonor to Robert Kardashian and a huge blow to a seemingly sweet 20-something who no doubt has enough issues to deal with as is.
