When he tries to explain to Simba that he had no involvement in the attack and begs for Simba's forgiveness, Kovu is quickly exiled from the Pride Lands as a traitor by Simba with help from the Pride Lands' inhabitants. There's also how Vitani and Nuka are both Zira's real children, and neither of them look like Kovu or Scar. He is social, talkative, and critical to his friends. After Kion hears that Scar lost his Roar because he used it for evil rather than against other lions, Kovu distances himself from the other Outsiders just before Kion uses the Roar to blast them to termite mounts.

Also, those book writers are not the ones that worked on the movie, nor do most of them work for Disney -- they're just writers that are hired to write the book versions of the movies.
Confused, Kovu questions Zira on why they can't be friends with Kion, to which Zira replies that it isn't her decision but Kion's as he chose to side with the hyenas over the lions. As Nuka said, Scar is not Kovu's father. You like your sister Vitani, right? Max finally believes in Timon, and after Timon takes the meerkats to his jungle paradise, Max teaches the meerkats instead of how not to be eaten.

If we're accepting it as canon I'm still on the wall about it , Kovu's father could be one of these males.
And as far as I know the director has said it directly himself too. This tale will answer this and many other questions that you may have puzzled over, such as these: 1. It is revealed in this episode that Zira attacked Simba after he defeated Scar and denied Kovu's position as the next king, resulting in the Outsiders' exile. The next morning, Kovu prepares to attack Simba while he is drinking from the water hole, but Kiara interrupts him to begin the hunting lesson. His playful nature often gets him into trouble, though his intentions are usually good. We have some meat left in the cave. Uru - Mother of Taka and Mufasa, and great-grandmother of Kiara.

His grandparents were killed during an attack by ants. That was another side-effect of his unique power…it made his taste buds tingle every single time he ate something whole.
