An outrageous report by In Touch magazine has alleged that Lionel Richie could be Khloe Kardashian’s biological father. Questions have swirled about a potential relationship between the singing star and Kris Jenner that took place in the 80s.

In Touch claims that a source told the magazine that the affair did indeed occur in the ’80s and that Khloe is the product of their “sexual affair.” In truth, much of the speculation stems from the fact that Richie’s daughter 16-year-old daughter Sofia.

Adding fuel to the fire, a source also conveyed Kris, now 58, had the fling with Lionel, 65, while still married. Rumors like this are nothing new to Khloe. The idea that someone other than the late Robert Kardashian are par for the course. Among the roster of potential fathers that have been previously suggested include O.J. Simpson and Kris Jenner’s former hairstylist Alex Roldan.

“I’ve had so many dads my head is spinning,” Khloe stated to Gossip Cop.

So these type of rumors have been running rampant for a while but let’s be honest why they exist in the first place. If you’re not big on brutal honesty, stop reading now!

For starters, Kim and Kourtney look a lot more like sisters than Khloe does. Khloe has a bigger frame and just doesn’t really have the same types of facial features her sisters have so many Kardashian watchers may think a different father was involved.

The most notable contributor to the Lionel Richie rumor is the fact that Kardashian women tend to like black men. Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe do..so why wouldn’t Kris? That’s how it works right? As silly as that line of thinking may be, you have to think that preference would lead a lot of people with a lot of time on their hands to start spreading rumors and get buzz to their own bit of publicity for whatever reason.

In any event, the story has broken wide all over the internet and Khloe and spokespeople are simply laughing the accusations off which is pretty much the best response they could give.
