Bringing up the past. In a new trailer for season 17 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kris Jenner is upset that there are rumors going around that the Kardashian matriarch was previously intimate with O.J. Simpson. “They printed a story I was sleeping with O.J.,” the 63-year-old said in the trailer. “After 25 years, you would think it wouldn’t be a thing.”
Kris confessed that she cheated on her late husband, Robert Kardashian Sr., while they were married in her 2011 memoir called Kris Jenner … And All Things Kardashian. Afterward, Robert divorced her when he found out she was being unfaithful. For years, fans thought that Kris was having an affair with O.J. since he was very close with Robert. In the early ‘90s, Robert came out of retirement to join the legal “dream team” to represent O.J. during his trial for the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.
In 2013, there was a theory circling that Khloé Kardashian’s real father was actually the NFL star, 72. However, the former football star cleared the air in June on social media. “You know, this is my first venture into the social media world, and it’s amazing,” he said in a video posted to Twitter. “Bob Kardashian was like a brother to me. He’s a great guy. He met and married Kris, and they really had a terrific time together when they were together.”
The Heisman Trophy recipient went on to deny the allegations. “But never — and I want to stress never — in any way, shape or form, have I ever had any interest in Kris, romantically or sexually,” he stated. “And I never got any indication that she had any interest in me. So, all of these stories are just bogus. Bad. Tasteless.”
However, O.J. made it clear that he still cares about the Kardashian family. “Khloé, like all the girls, I’ve proud of,” he said. “Just like I know Bob would be if he was here. But the simple facts of the matter is she’s not mine.”
Hopefully, Kris can move on from the gossip once and for all.
Keeping Up with the Kardashians season 17 premieres on E! Sunday, September 8, at 9 p.m. ET.
