The debate and theories, explained

Who is Khloe Kardashian’s real father?

It is a question that should not require much debate.

After all, throughout her life, Khloé has maintained that her father is the late Robert Kardashian Sr., who is also the father of her sisters, Kourtney and Kim.

But many social media users think Khloé is lying or has been duped herself.

They point out that Khloé is much taller than her sisters and doesn’t look as much like Kim and Kourtney as those two look like each other.

(The difference in bone structure is less evident these days, due to the fact that Khloe has had cosmetic work.)

After the death of OJ Simpson and the start of the new season of The Kardashians on Hulu on May 23, let’s look at what’s been theorized, hypothesized, and refutably confirmed on this topic.

The identity of Khloe Kardashian’s real father has long been a topic of debate

Questions about Khloe’s paternity date back to at least 2021. That’s when Kris Jenner published a memoir in which she admitted to having an affair during her marriage to Robert.

Shortly after, Robert’s second wife told him Star magazine (via Fox News) that her late husband once admitted that Khloe was not his daughter.

“He just looked at me and said it like it was a fact,” Jan Ashley recalled.

“He said, ‘Well, you know Khloe’s not really a Kardashian, right?’ And I said… ‘Okay’ and that was it.”

In a 2012 episode of keeping up with the KardashiansKris encouraged Khloe to take a DNA test, insisting it was something she “needs to feel whole.”

“My dad is Robert Kardashian. “My other dad is (Caitlyn) Jenner,” Khloé responded.

“I don’t need anyone to tell me who my family is. I have been blessed to have two phenomenal parents. “I don’t need a DNA test to prove who my father is.”

Is OJ Simpson Khloe’s real father?

OJ Simpson was a close friend of Robert and was rumored for years to have had an affair with Kris.

Those rumors resurfaced after Simpson’s death in April.

Simpson, however, repeatedly denied rumors of a romance with Kris.

“The rumor is not true. “It’s not even close to being true,” she said during an appearance on the “Full Send” podcast in 2022, according to news week.

The controversial football legend admitted to being attracted to Kris and said:

“I always thought Kris was a cute girl. She was really nice. But you know, she was dating supermodels!

Is Alex Roldán Khloé’s real father?

Another name that is often mentioned in connection with Khloé’s parentage is Alex Roldán.

Roldán is Kris Jenner’s former hairdresser.

As E! says News reports, several members of the Kardashian clan have joked about the possibility of Roldán being Khloé’s father.

But no one in Khloé’s family seems to take the allegations too seriously.

And since Khloé seems in no rush to get to the bottom of this mystery, we may have to accept that it will remain unsolved forever.
