Keeping up with the Kardashians isn’t that easy, and neither are the secrets that the family does not want you to know about. Having entertained millions of viewers with their fun and loving dynamic since 2007, the Kardashians have always tried to keep their reputation at its best. Whether it was during an emotional divorce between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, or Kris Jenner separating from ex-husband Bruce Jenner, the Kardashians have been rather public with situations they would have rather wanted to keep private. But those stories, which were considered to somewhat be scandals in their own right, do not even come close to the shocking secrets that the family has hidden from fans over the past few years. Everybody has some sort of past, and with there being so many characters in the Kardashian household, there are dozens of secrets the family share between each other that they would prefer not to speak on. Ranging from allegedly owning a clothing manufacturer in China that sees the Kardashian pay its workers 13 cents per day, to new evidence proving that Khloe Kardashian is most certainly not the daughter of the late Robert Kardashian. Below, we have gathered the ten most shocking Kardashian secrets the family would not want you to know about.
10. Kardashian Sweatshop Work
It pays well to be a Kardashian, but the same can’t be said to all the young people in China working up to fourteen hours a day to create many of their products. A clothing manufacturer that was linked to several of Kardashian merchandises, was alleged to have paid its workers 12 cents per day in excruciating long hours for maximum profit for the company and, of course, the Kardashians. Kim, Kourtney and Khloe never commented on the claims that were made against them while it’s also unclear whether the trio have distanced themselves from this particular manufacturer.
9. Scott Disick’s Family Trouble
Scott Disick may have been dealing with an alcohol addiction in recent years, but it seems that problematic trouble runs in the family. His deceased father Jeffrey Disick, was arrested in 2001 for “acting in concert with another person” to steal $3000 from North Fort Bank. It’s a little shocking to think that Scott Disick, who is known to pull in $10,000 per club appearance, had parents that were dealing with serious money issues just over a decade ago. Although, following the incident, Jeffrey stayed out of trouble and just a few years later, he and wife Bonnie, would move to the Hamptons.
8. Khloe Kardashian Paternity Rumors
During an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Khloe Kardashian refused in taking a paternity test to determine whether she was a Kardashian or not. The socialite had faced public scrutiny through the years from the public claiming she looked nothing like Kim or Kourtney. On top of this, Robert Kardashian’s ex-wife, Ellen Pierson, came forward to confess that she knew Khloe wasn’t a Kardashian because her widow had personally told her so. To this day, Khloe has refused to take the paternity test, sparking rumors that Kris Jenner may have cheated during the time she became pregnant with her third child.
7. Kim’s Playboy Shoot — Kris Staged It All
Ever since the release of Kim Kardashian’s infamous sex tape, Kris Jenner has been blamed for the video ever seeing the light of day. Now, there may be some truth in that, as credible sources allege the momager played in the forefront when it came to getting Kim naked for Playboy. While it was believed that Hugh Hefner had arranged the shoot, it was actually Kris who pushed Kim to strike a deal with the mogul. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Kim admits: “‘Go for it’, my mother said, ‘They might never ask you again. Our show isn’t on the air yet. No-one knows who you are. Do it and you’ll have these beautiful pictures to look at when you’re my age.”
6. Kris Jenner’s Alcoholic Father
Kris Jenner’s father, Bob Houghton, was a hardcore alcoholic who left the reality star disappointed when he would walk out of her life on numerous occasions. She later became completely estranged from her dad, only to then learn that her father was involved in a tragic car crash. Bob was under the influence of alcohol when he crashed into another vehicle, causing an instant death. Many believe that Kris’ own alleged alcohol problems stem from her views of her father who dealt with his issues by drinking.
5. Keeping Up With the Scripts
Believe it or not, many episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians are scripted. It’s a soap opera, to say the least. Following her divorce from Kris Humphries in 2011, Kim was gearing up for the release of her spin-off show, Kim and Kourtney Take New York, which heavily featured scenes of her then-husband. According to reports, Kim decided to fit in newly filmed scenes of her own in certain episodes so that she wasn’t portrayed to be a bad person. These scenes showed Kim crying uncontrollably, confessing to her mother, Kris Jenner, how unhappy she was in her marriage. The shots were then edited into footage that was shot months ago, all for the sake of keeping up a good reputation with her fans.
4. Khloe Didn’t Want Kids With Lamar
While Khloe Kardashian was very open in telling her fans how badly she wanted to start a family with Lamar Odom following their marriage, it turned out to have been one big lie. The 30-year-old was against the idea from having babies with her husband due to his ongoing drug addiction that had worsened over time. Khloe was worried that Lamar’s drug addiction would eventually cause their relationship to crumble, and she was right, which perfectly explains why she didn’t want to get pregnant. But, despite having filed for divorce in 2013, Khloe is still legally married to Lamar.
3. Rob Kardashian’s Alleged Secret Son
By the look of things, Rob Kardashian isn’t a huge fan when it comes to practicing safe sex. A few years back, the reality star had impregnated a random woman he met at a nightclub, only to find out that she had suffered a miscarriage just weeks later. But in recent months, Rob seems to have hinted that he has fathered a child, presumably with the same woman, with cryptic social media messages.
2. Lamar Odom’s Drug Addiction Publicized By Kardashians
Khloe Kardashian’s estranged husband Lamar Odom dealt with public scrutiny following claims that he had cheated on his wife with multiple women. The story then followed by exposing the disgraced NBA player in an alleged drug scandal that saw Lamar lose his position on the L.A Clippers’ basketball team. Nonetheless, it was heavily rumored that Kris Jenner was responsible for Lamar’s “demons” leaking to the public in hopes to keep the Kardashian reputation on the good side. Kris supposedly thought that linking Lamar’s drug problems with her family would seem as if Khloe was supporting her husband who had an addiction.
1. Kardashians Sleeping In Make Up
All of the Kardashians, including the young Jenners (as your probably know), are obsessed with make-up. Catching them without wearing a layer of foundation is extremely rare. So, it should not surprise anybody to learn that after an exhausting day posing for selfies and attending red carpet events, these women are so tired they fall asleep with their make up on. According to a former housekeeper who worked with Kim, she reveals, “Every single morning her white sheets would be covered in makeup. There was always mascara and foundation everywhere.”
