A quick check of Khloe Kardashian’s DNA might end questions of who her father is, or isn’t.
Paging Maury! There’s only one surefire way to find out whether Khloe Kardashian is truly a Kardashian: A DNA test!
Popular satellite radio hub Sirius XM must know something the rest of us don’t, because they’ve offered to donate $250,000 to the charity of Khloe’s choice if she agrees to take a paternity test to prove if Robert Kardashian, OJ Simpson’s late defense attorney, is truly her dad.
On Tuesday, Sirius personality Gregg “Opie” Hughes, of The Opie & Anthony Show, announced that he has a quarter of a million dollars with Khloe’s name on it if she agrees to offer up her cheeks for a DNA test that will prove her true parentage once and for all.
For celeb gawkers who haven’t been keeping up with their Kardashian gossip, last week, the basketball wife made headlines for a very different reason. Two of Robert Kardashian’s ex-wives tittle tattled to Star magazine that Khloe was not the daughter of Robert Kardashian, but the product of an affair momager Kris Jenner had during her first marriage.
“Robert did question the fact that Khloe was his. Any normal man would if they knew their wife had cheated on him,” Robert’s widow, Ellen Kardashian, told the tabloid. “He never would have considered a DNA test. He loved her very much.”
In her 2011 memoir, Kris admits she had an affair with a man called “Ryan,” which ended her marriage to Robert in 1990. A Hollywood animator by the name of Todd Waterman has since come forward claiming he’s the “Ryan” Kris hooked up with.
“It was scandalous, we dated for a year and a half,” he told Star.
Kris wrote in her memoir, “I would tell Robert I was going out to lunch and I would end up at Ryan’s apartment having crazy, fabulous sex for hours in the middle of the day. I would drop Kourtney, Kimberly and Khloe off at school and rush straight to Ryan.”
A suspicious Robert eventually caught his wife cheating after having her followed to her lover’s apartment. He filed for divorce and Kris continued seeing Ryan (Todd?) until she met her current husband, Olympian Bruce Jenner.
Waterman insists that his dalliances with Kris took place in 1989, when she was a bored housewife and he was 24-year-old professional soccer player. Since Khloe was born in 1984, it seems unlikely that she could be the spawn of Waterman.
The Kardashians have called the paternity scandal “ridiculous.”
Khloe has not responded to Opie’s DNA offer. But several of Khloe’s good friends are reportedly urging the socialite to undergo genetic testing.
“It will just make this story go away — permanently,” said one Kardashian honcho told The Chicago Sun-Times.
If Kris and Khloe decide to file suit over the Star story, DNA testing will likely be demanded by attorneys representing the tabloid.
