They have had their fair share of drama but Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom had to deal with a very sensitive issue on the season finale of their reality show.
Khloe began worrying after a story emerged in the press that there was a chance Robert Kardashian is not her biological father.
And while her sisters Kim and Kourtney attempted to help by suggesting she get a DNA test to give her peace of mind, it only made matters worse.
Fretting: Khloe Kardashian grew worried over claims Robert was not her real father in the season finale of Khloe & Lamar
Kim phoned Khloe to make her aware that Robert’s ex-wives were claiming Khloe’s father, who was OJ Simpson’s lawyer, had told them Khloe is not his biological daughter before he died.
The 27-year-old then turned to brother Rob for help, who made a cruel joke by pretending the pair’s mother Kris Jenner had called a family meeting and admitted she had ‘made a mistake as a mother’.
When Khloe became furious at the prank, Rob said: ‘For you to think that you’re not related to us – that’s ridiculous.’

Jet-setting: Khloe flew from Dallas to Los Angeles where she took part in a photo shoot with her family
The next day, Khloe received a phone call from Kourtney, who told her: ‘I was talking to Kim and we were saying why don’t we just get a DNA test?’
Khloe fumed to the cameras: ‘Why would my own sister even ask that?’
When she jetted from Dallas to Los Angeles for a photo shoot with her sisters, the rumours had clearly started to worry Khloe and she expressed her concern to Kim and Kourtney.
Khloe said: ‘This whole thing weirds me out, freaks me out, it makes me feel really uncomfortable. It also kind of scares me, the what if, like what if I’m really not?’

Supportive: Khloe had her friend Malika on hand to vent about the situation to
When the star arrived back in Dallas and vented about the situation to her best friend Malika Haqq, it became clear she was placing some blame on her mother.
Khloe explained: ‘The majority of this stems from her book. She wrote in her book that she had an affair when she was 30. That means she had an affair around the year I was born.’
So when Kris turned up to a magazine photo shoot Khloe was doing, the brunette gave her mother and manager the cold shoulder.
Kris also suggested she have a DNA test and said: ‘There’s got to be a part of you that wants some resolution in your heart.’

But an irritated Khloe brushed it off and told her mother: ‘I don’t care either way, because my dad is my dad and my stepdad is my stepdad.’
And she reiterated to the cameras: ‘I am one million per cent comfortable with not getting a DNA test and knowing that my father is my father.’
However a preview for an upcoming episode of the clan’s family show Keeping Up With The Kardashians suggests the brood decide to all take a DNA test to offer Khloe resolve.

Khloe co-hosted The Talk where she received some romantic gifts from Lamar as a thank you, as well as a bizarre visit from a giraffe.
Lamar told the cameras: ‘I’m just happy that I’ve got someone like Khloe to get me through the trying times.’
And Khloe added: ‘I married my true soulmate.’
