The news, which began from In Touch magazine, surfaced last week and alleges that Kris Jenner had an affair with the singer in the 80s, commenting that his youngest daughter Sofia is the “spitting image” of Khloé.
Now, for the first time since the rumors hit, Richie is addressing the situation.
When asked whether or not the rumors are true, he laughed it off.
“No! Of course not,” he said. “But you know what, they are my kids. I mean, they grew up in my house.”
Then he swift added, “But no I’m not the dad.”
Controversy surrounding Khloé’s “real dad” have been in the media since the reality star first talked about her doubts about her biological parents on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, threatening Kris Jenner she she was going to get a paternity test.
However, she never went through with it, and thus the rumor mill continues to spin!
