Music Legend, Lionel Richie, denies being Khloe Kardashian's biological father


Lionel Richie and Khloe Kardashian

Lionel Richie has denied being Khloe Kardashian's father after he was asked whether he was the daddy following the recent sensational rumours.

The Dancing On The Ceiling star was spotted coming out of dinner earlier this week at Madeo in Beverly Hills when he was questioned about being the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star.

"No of course not," he said. "But you know what, they are my kids. They are my kids, they grew up in my house."

Richie, whose daughter Nicole was childhood best friends with Kim Kardashian, added that he thinks a lot of Khloe and despite her age - would welcome her into his family.

He said: "No, I'm not the dad. But I would adopt her!"

Last week, Khloe Kardashian has laughed off the report claiming that Lionel Richie is her “real father”.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has been bullied for years with rumours that the late Robert Kardashian was not her dad but that his client, O.J Simpson was.

Now the latest rumour claims that Motown legend is her daddy – and Khloe says hell no.

Earlier today, In Touch Weekly have reportedly published a story making the sensational and unsubstantiated claim, calling it a “stunning game changer in the ongoing paternity saga.”

Khloe has now told GossipCop: “I’ve had so many dads my head is spinning lol.”

Questions arose over who Khloe’s daddy was when Kris Jenner admitted to having an affair around the time that Khloe was conceived in her book, Kris Jenner and All Things Kardashian.

In 2012, Kris tried to get Khloe to take a paternity test on the family’s reality show to try and put the rumours dogging them to bed.

On the show, Kris said: “Khloe has had it with me torturing her over this swab test.

“I know all the rumours are absolutely ridiculous, but I know this is something she needs in order to feel complete.”

Calling on the family to help convince Khloe to do the test, Khloe told her mum: “Mom, I don’t care what they’re saying … because everyone is calling me fat, do you want me to go get lipo?”

“Seriously, my dad is Robert Kardashian. My other dad is Bruce Jenner,” she continued. “If you f***ed other people during the same time and you do not know, go on Maury!”

The star even wrote her mother a letter about why she didn’t need scientific results to prove who her father was.

 “I don’t need someone to tell me who my family is. I have had the blessing of having two phenomenal fathers. I don’t need a DNA test to prove who my father is,” it read.
