DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Khloe Kardashian is using Twitter to attack her two former stepmothers after comments they made in the latest issue of Star Magazine. Jan Ashley and Ellen Kardashian both said that Khloe is not the child of Robert Kardashian, insisting that she is a love child from Kris Jenner's affair.

Robert, who died from cancer in 2003, married Ashley after splitting from Jenner in 1990, and then later wed Ellen. "Khloe is not his kid," Ashley alleged to the tabloid. "He told me that after we got married."

"Well, you know that Khloe's not really a Kardashian, don't you?" said Ashley, allegedly quoting her ex-husband for the magazine.

Jenner had three other children with Robert Kardashian – Kourtney, Kim and Rob.

Rumors about such a scandal have plagued the family for years. An episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" even featured Khloe questioning if she had been adopted. Ellen Kardashian echoed Ashley's statement to Star Magazine. "She looked nothing like the rest," she said in regards to Khloe. "She was tall, had a different shape, light hair, curly hair. Didn't look anything like the other three children."

The second wife even noted for the tabloid that Khloe would talk about how different she was from her three siblings "all the time." But the family never asked for a DNA test, she said, because Robert accepted the "truth" about Khloe and "loved her very much" nonetheless.

Jenner admitted to having an affair in her recent memoir entitled "Kris Jenner... and All Things Kardashian." The book made no mention of any children from those infidelities.

Meanwhile, Khloe has gone online to lash out at the claims that Robert Kardashian is not her biological father. "The audacity you have to mention my father's name like this," she tweeted on Wednesday morning. "Should be ashamed of urself! I let a lot of things slide but this one is really low… YOU ARE DISGUSTING! (yes you know who YOU are)."

Khloe recently moved to Dallas when her basketball player husband, Lamar Odom, was traded to the Dallas Mavericks. The Kardashian family stars in a series of reality television shows that air on the E! Network.
