Lionel Richie wants to set the record straight: He is NOT the father!

“No, of course not!” the “All Night Long” singer, 65, said when asked about rumors that Khloe Kardashian, 30, is his secret love child. “No, I’m not the dad.”

However, he says he considers the Kardashian sisters— including 33-year-old daughter Nicole Richie’s childhood friends Kourtney, 35, and Kim, 33— part of the family.

“But you know what, they are my kids,” he insisted. “They grew up in my house.”

According to a new report, Khloe’s mother Kris Jenner, 58, had a steamy affair with the pop superstar in the early ‘80s.

Lionel “was on the outs with his wife at the time, everyone was sleeping around with everyone else back then, and Kris was hot in those days,” a source told In Touch Weekly.

Fueling the whispers, Richie’s daughter, aspiring singer Sofia, 16, seems like she could be Khloe’s look-a-like little sister.

Khloe has long maintained that O.J. Simpson lawyer Robert Kardashian Sr., who died of esophageal cancer at just 59 in 2003, was her true father.
