Whoa. As we wrote about a few weeks ago, Khloe Kardashian‘s paternity has been in question for some time, a scandal which heated up after her mother Kris Jenner admitted to having affairs around the time of Khloe’s conception.
Now, little sis Kylie Jenner has revealed via Twitter that Khloe’s father is, in fact, Alex Roldan. “First official photo of my sister and her dad! Like father like daughter!” she writes, attaching the above an Instagram pic of Khloe with Roldan.
Roldan is a West Hollywood hairdresser who worked with Kris Jenner in the ’80s. He runs Alex Roldan Salon, just off Sunset Boulevard. Word is that Khloe has actually been aware of her paternity for some time, but that the family was holding off on the revelation for the purposes of their reality show. Khloe’s spin-off, “Khloe and Lamar,” is currently filming, so we’d expect to see the issue addressed when the season airs.
There’s no denying that Khloe and Roldan bear more than a passing resemblance. Additionally, her middle name is “Alexandra,” which may point to the possibility that Jenner was aware all along. As for the late Robert Kardashian, his ex-wives have stated to the press that he was aware that Khloe was not biologically his daughter, but treated her as his own.
The biggest surprise is that the paternity was revealed via Twitter, as opposed to on a major magazine cover. The pic was supposedly taken behind the scenes of a music video shoot that Khloe and brother Rob Kardashian are in (as “Khlomoney and Rkash”).
We can’t wait to see how this unfolds in the media.
UPDATE: Kylie now tweets, “It was a joke everyone!” We’re still curious as to why Jenner’s old hairstylist is hangin’ with the fam, particularly given the intense scrutiny. Hmmm.
