O.J. Simpson Shuts Down Rumors Of Being Khloe Kardashian’s Father

OJ Simpson

As far as American pop culture goes, everyone knows that the Kardashian family is at the top. Kim Kardashian and her family have been on TV for a whopping 14 season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, remaining a main stay of the pop culture lexicon for over a decade. But years before E! would bring them to our TV every Sunday night, the Kardashian clan were introduced to the American public through the O.J. Simpson trial. The late Robert Kardashian was one of Simpson's best friends, and rumors have long swirled that Khloe Kardashian was in fact O.J.'s daughter, and not Robert's. And now Simpson has commented on the situation directly, after being asked if he feels proud of Khloe now that she's expecting her first child. His response was as follows:

Well, for Bob (Kardashian), God bless his soul, yeah. I don't know for me. I don't think for me I have nothing to do with it. I would be proud ... but trust me, I had nothing to do with it.

It looks like The Juice is shutting dow the rumors about Khloe Kardashian's parentage, and seems to be congratulating both Khloe and the late Robert Kardashian on her pregnancy announcement.

This statement by O.J. Simpsons comes to us from TMZ, who managed to get ahold of the former professional athlete in Vegas. He seems to completely deny any role he could have within the Kardashian family, aside from being Robert's buddy and a former family friend of Kris and the kids.

Rumors about O.J. Simpson possibly being Khloe Kardashian's real father have been swirling since the family began appearing in Keeping up with the Kardashians. Khloe has a much more broad and tall frame than her sisters Kim and Kourtney; this inspired many to believe that she might not share the same genetic makeup as her sisters, and could possibly be O.J. Simpson's biological daughter.

Of course, the implications of this rumor would put a fair amount of blame on Kris Jenner and O.J. Simpson. It would mean that the duo had an affair 34 years ago, and have been covering up for it for over three decades. This is no doubt a painful rumor for both Khloe and Kris, and is one that has actually been addressed during episodes of Keeping up with the Kardashians.

This isn't the first time that Kris Jenner has been accused of cheating. She famously had an affair with Todd Waterman, which was largely the cause of her divorce with Robert Kardashian. It's also been reported that her affair with Waterman and the beginning of her relationship with Bruce Jenner happened around the same time, making Jenner's three lovers all have some overlap with one another.

Hopefully this statement by O.J. Simpson will put Khloe Kardashian's mind at ease, as she focuses on her newly announced pregnancy with boyfriend Tristan Thompson.
