The Kardashian-Jenner family has ruled Twitter for the past few months, from news of Kylie’s secret pregnancy to Paris Hilton dressing up as Kim to promote Kanye West’s new Yeezy releases. And most recently, people are noticing that Khloé Kardashian looks a lot like Elvis Presley.
Yes, the Elvis Presley, King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, and American legend.
On Thursday, @ThatDudeMCFLY responded to a colorized photo of Elvis in army garb, pointing out that he looked a lot like the youngest Kardashian sister.
Here’s the photo of Elvis: eyebrows sharp, lips pursed, and is that a hint of mascara?
Here’s a picture that Khloé posted on Instagram two weeks ago.
The idea that Khloé Kardashian is Elvis Presley’s doppelgänger isn’t exactly new — it’s been around since at least 2016, when an article on the website SheKnows listed a few celebrities that may be Khloé’s real father than Robert Kardashian. The article’s conclusion: Khloe looks nothing like any of the men on the list, including her own father, except for Elvis.
Obviously, Elvis can’t actually be Khloé’s real father. He died in 1977, and Khloé wasn’t born until 1984. But the Kardashians and the Presleys do have connections. In his book The Kardashians: An American Drama, Jerry Oppenheimer claims that Robert Kardashian had an affair with Elvis’ wife Priscilla before he married Kris Jenner.
This is the guy who’s known for writing unauthorized celebrity biographies, who the New York Times once called “good at digging up dirt and molding it into the kind of unsparingly nasty page turner that is both titillating and embarrassing to read,” so he’s definitely a credible source.
Despite the rumors, you have to admit that Elvis and Khloé look a lot alike. Check out these side by sides:
Here’s the shot of Elvis and Khloé’s “DMV Vibes” Instagram.
And another of them making the same face.
They even have the same smile!
And here is a totally professional Photoshop of the two celebrities’ faces blended together.
Do they look alike? Twitter user @scottysdobrik doesn’t care as long as you don’t say that Elvis looks like Khloé.
After all, he did make headlines first.
