Last week, In Touch lied and said Lionel Richie might be Khloe Kardashian’s real father. Gossip Cop was the first to bust the story, getting an exclusive reaction from Kardashian herself, who jokingly told us, “I’ve had so many dads my head is spinning lol.”

But the truth apparently isn’t what In Touch is after, so the magazine’s new issue insists that Kardashian was “devastated” by the Richie report and “lash[ed] out” at mom Kris Jenner. “She’s really angry with Kris,” explains a so-called “insider” for the tabloid. “Khloe hates that once again she has to face the possibility that she’s not really a Kardashian.”

The bogus In Touch insider has the audacity to say, “Khloe’s been through so much already. Having to deal with the whole world guessing who her biological father is, is very upsetting to her.”

Earth to In Touch: It’s garbage, recycled tabloid stories like this one, based on nothing and directly refuted, that fuel the endless speculation about Kardashian’s paternity. She and Jenner are not fighting about this, because she and Jenner both know that Lionel Richie is not her father. The late Robert Kardashian is 100 percent Khloe’s dad.

A source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop that In Touch keeps printing the same old rumors about the family because “they don’t have real sources.”
