This year Khloe Kardashian faced allegations from her stepmothers that she’s not really Robert Kardashian‘s biological daughter. This claim sparked a firestorm because for years people have suspected that she does not share the same father as her siblings Kim, Kourtney, and Rob because she looks different from them. Her mother Kris Jenner’s detailed admission in her book of cheating on Robert Kardashian with Todd Waterman further famed the flames.
People speculated that Khloe’s dad was family friend O.J. Simpson, possibly the guy Kris had an affair with, Bruce Jenner, and, thanks to a Twitter joke of Khloe’s sister Kylie Jenner, Alex Roldan, a hairdresser who’s worked with Kris Jenner for many years.
Kris told The Today Show last week that Khloe underwent the testing (which is featured on the new season of Keeping up With The Kardashians) to “put her mind to rest.”
Khloe was against getting DNA paternity tests because Robert Kardashian raised her, so it didn’t really matter to her. But on the show Kris thought it was a good idea to get tested.
Kris: “Even though Khloe puts on a brave face, I know that deep down inside it really does hurt her. And it kills me that any of my children are hurting because of my past mistakes. And that’s why it’s so important to me that she does do the DNA test so that once and for all she can fell, and be, at peace.”
Kris had Robert’s children Rob, Kourtney, and Kim take swabs in their mouth to get the control DNA (this was the only way, because Robert is deceased. However, when the doctor shows up to swab Khloe, she refused! “It’s not about me. It’s actually about Mom.”
Mmmm, will we ever know? Was this just a set up to make it seem like they were finally going to set the record straight? UPDATE: Despite her mother’s tease about it, Khloe did not actually undergo the paternity test.
Teen Mom‘s Farrah Abraham did a similar test to prove paternity for Social Secruity, getting DNA from her baby Sophia’s dad’s sister because he had passed away in a car accident.)
Khloe resisted taking the test, telling the camera in true hilarious Khloe fashion:
“My dad is Robert Kardashian. My other dad is Bruce Jenner. If you f**ked other people during the same time, and you do not know, go on Maury. Like, I don’t care!”
There seems to be some confusion in the comment section about eye color genetics. Brown eye color is dominant, but still means that two brown-eyed people can have blue eyed children because they can have the blue eye gene, it’s just not showing because of the brown eye color is dominant.
Green and hazel eyes can be a lot more complicated because there are different forms of the eye color genes involved, but there’s great explanation of eye color inheritance at The Tech Museum.
