Thanks to nasty claims by Robert Kardashian's ex-wives, Khloe Kardashian can't get a break with these paternity rumors. She's already addressed the rumors with tweets, and mom Kris Jenner went on Good Morning America saying, "I have never heard such crap in my life. I mean, I was there, right? I gave birth, I know who the dad was, everything's good." The latest from TMZ even confirms the Kardashian paternity from the "horse's mouth," so to speak ... Apparently, Robert filed a declaration when he was getting his second marriage to Jan Ashley annulled in 1999 over a dispute about having more kids, and it reads, "I decided that since I already had four biological children, I did not wish to have any more."
Nonetheless, the idea that Khloe might have been another man's kiddo is still floating around. My heart would go out to her for having to endure this torture of defending her identity, but you know ... she asked for it.
Even Kris herself noted on GMA that this kinda thing really does just come with the territory of being reality show stars. She acknowledged:
It’s what you sign up for, I guess, when you put yourself out there. We’re an open book. You know, we talk about everything.
And if they're going to make their livings by being that "open book," it's not like the Kardashians can really pick and choose what they want to talk about -- disturbing, upsetting, dumbfounding or not. We can all safely assume Kris tries and often succeeds with controlling the conversation about her family, but as we've seen again and again, there are those who will just pop up out of obscurity to get their 15 minutes piggybacking on the Kardashians' now what, 30? 60? minutes.
As much as it might hurt Khloe, she's gotta get used to it. By "signing up for" a reality TV show life that exists 24/7/365 in the spotlight, she's gonna face different types of rumors, some laughable and others downright distasteful. The good news is that at the very least, she, Kris, and any of the other K women can still exercise their right to choose whether or not they want to acknowledge the cruelest gossip.
Do you think Khloe "deserves" to deal with these nasty paternity rumors, because of the life she's signed up for?
