Khloe Kardashian was recently photographed with Alex Roldan, a man critics suspect is her biological father, but sources say that the photo is a "joke."
Last month the internet was abuzz with rumors that Roldan, a hairdresser who bears an uncanny resemblance to 27-year-old Kardashian, is in fact her biological father.
On Wednesday the reality star's younger sister posted a picture of Kardashian with Roldan online, with a sarcastic caption that supposedly confirms the recent paternity speculation.
"First official photo of my sister and her dad! Like father like daughter!" Kylie Jenner tweeted before tweeting, "It was a joke everyone! Lol!"
Although the paternity gossip has sparked anger, as Kardashian's recent tweets show, new reports suggest that Kardashian matriarch, Kris Jenner, is trying to weave the drama into one of the Kardashian family's various reality TV shows as an entertainment plot line, according to ONTD.
The Kardashian sisters are renowned for their exotic features, which include dark hair and dark eyes, and critics have always pointed out how different Kardashian looks to sisters Kim and Kourtney.
In early January, the questions about Khloe's "real" father ensued after an ex-wife and widow of the late Robert Kardashian openly said that he had told them Kardashian was not really his.
"Khloe is not his kid- he told me that after we got married," Jan Ashley, who married Robert after Kris Jenner, told Star.
Robert's widow, Ellen Kardashian, had similar views about Kardashian's paternity issue, claiming Robert was doubtful that he was Khloe's biological father.
"Khloe brought it up all the time. ... She looked nothing like the rest. She was tall, had a different shape, light hair, curly hair. Didn't look anything like the other three children," Ellen said.
"Robert did question the fact that Khloe was his. ... Any normal man would if they knew their wife had cheated on him," she added.
Jenner, who is now married to Olympic champion Bruce Jenner, had six children with Robert Kardashian although critics long suspected that Khloe was not Robert's biological child.
In a new book, Jenner admits to having had an affair while being married to Robert, and although she has not revealed her secret lover's identity many suspect that it was Roldan and that the affair saw Jenner conceive Khloe.
Roldan has not publicly addressed the paternity matter.
