Is Khloe Kardashian really a child of the late Robert Kardashian Sr.? For years, Kris Jenner has been given the side-eye about the paternity of her third daughter. As many Keeping Up With the Kardashians fans know, the Kardashians are of Armenian descent. While Kourtney, Kim, and Rob bare a striking resemblance with distinct Armenian features, Khloe Kardashian is actually distinctively different from her three immediate siblings.
From the color of her hair, to her facial features, Khloe Kardashian is noticeably different from her siblings, which has only added fuel to the paternity rumors. Then, to make matters worse, Kris Jenner openly admitted to having an affair during her marriage to Robert Kardashian. So, news outlets have always speculated that the affair may have led to the birth of Khloe Kardashian.
Now, the controversial author of an upcoming tell-all book has decided to tackle the infamous Khloe Kardashian paternity scandal and he’s pretty sure he has the brutally honest truth about Kris Jenner’s affair. According to InTouch Weekly, Ian Halperin’s upcoming book Kardashian Dynasty:The Controversial Rise of America’s Royal Family delves into the explosive secret about the paternity of Khloe Kardashian.
During a recent interview with InTouch Weekly, Halperin revealed how he began researching the paternity scandal and what intrigued him about the whole debacle. Like most people, he found Khloe Kardashian’s features distinctive but, once he saw a photo of O.J.’s daughter, Sydney, as a child, he really began to speculate. He admitted that he initially dismissed the rumors, deeming them far-fetched because of Khloe Kardashian’s light complexion, but had second thoughts after comparing the photos of the two young girls.

“When I heard the rumors, I immediately dismissed them out of hand. While it’s true that Khloe looked nothing like her sisters, I thought she was too light-skinned to have been fathered by O.J. — not withstanding the fact that he is a light-skinned African American with significant white blood in his ancestry. Still, [Khloé’s sisters] Kourtney and Kim[Kardashian] were darker than she was. They’d be more likely candidates, I assumed.”
“Then I saw a photo of O.J.’s daughter Sydney when she was young and a photo of Khloé at a similar age. They were spitting images of each other. Maybe there’s something to this after all, I thought.”
Now he’s hoping to have an exclusive interview with O.J. Simpson to get his side of the story. Although Kris has adamantly refuted the paternity rumors alleging that O.J. is Khloe Kardashian’s father, Halperin is hoping the former NFL star will at least admit to having a previous affair with her.
“I crafted a letter that I hoped would pique the Juice’s interest. My goal was simply to get a face-to-face meeting with the wife-killing maniac. If I could establish his trust, my goal would be to have him at least admit that he had an affair with [Khloé’s mother] Kris Jenner back in the day,” he said.
The latest report detailing Ian Halperin’s claims follow a string of previous reports accusing Kris Jenner of passing off Khloe Kardashian as one of her late ex-husband’s children. Although Khloe refuses to have the infamous paternity discussion with her mother, the subject has caused a bit of confusion on previous episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. On one particular KUWTK episode, Kris Jenner had grown tired of the paternity rumors and desired to put the allegations to rest once and for all, according to Radar Online. When asked to consider taking a paternity test, Khloe Kardashian became furious with her mother and adamantly refused to do so.
Many news outlets speculated that her refusal was due to the fact that she is aware of the possibility that Robert Kardashian may not be her biological father. To this day, Khloe Kardashian has reportedly never taken a paternity test. O.J. Simpson still has yet to respond to Ian Halperin’s letter.
Kardashian Dynasty:The Controversial Rise of America’s Royal Family is scheduled to be released on April 19.
