Khloe Kardashian and nephew Mason DisickVicious rumors about the Kardashians are nothing new, but the latest buzz has got to be hitting Khloe Kardashian where it hurts. Robert Kardashian's ex-wife and widow have come forward with a shocking revelation: Both women claim that Robert seriously doubted Khloe was his biological child.
Obviously this raises about a zillion questions, but this is the one thing I really want to know: Why are they doing this now? What do Jan Ashley and Ellen Kardashian have to gain from spilling the alleged secret? (Besides a fat check, of course.)
It's a cruel and spiteful thing to do, especially considering Khloe has already struggled with her identity as the "different" Kardashian. I mean, really. This is a girl who shoved a cotton swab in her unsuspecting mother's mouth in a quest for DNA because she thought she was adopted.
I just have to wonder how this is going to affect Khloe, who's recently established herself as The Level-Headed Kardashian Sister. I would hate to see all the gossip send her into an emotional tailspin ... even if it does turn out to be true.
That's what makes these particular rumors so hurtful ... there's a fair amount of evidence suggesting Robert Kardashian's ex-wife and widow aren't making this stuff up. (Not least of all Kris Jenner confessing that yes, she did cheat on Robert in her new book.) Combine that shocker with the physical and intellectual traits distinguishing Khloe from Kourtney and Kim ... well, it's definitely a possibility.
But at this point, what does it matter? Apart from the potential value of Khloe discovering her roots, etc., which could be quite a journey. What really gets me is this statement made by Ellen Kardashian (who, as it turns out, filed for bankruptcy in 2010 ... hmm): Even though Robert didn't think Khloe was his, she said, "He never would have considered a DNA test. He loved her very much."
So I'm guessing he probably wouldn't have told Ellen or Jan if he knew they were going to sell his story to Star magazine after his death.
And it's the gratuitous use of her father's name that's really getting to Khloe. She tweeted:
"The audacity you have to use my father's name like this! Should be ashamed of urself!"
Spoken like a true Kardashian.
Do you think this latest rumor about Khloe Kardashian crosses the line?
