Well, that’s that. O.J. Simpson flat out denied being Khloé Kardashian’s father via Twitter on Father’s Day, which seems like a pretty fitting day to put those rumors to rest, honestly.

“You know this is my first venture into the social media world, and it’s amazing,” O.J., 71, started a video he posted to Twitter on June 16. He then rambled for a bit before bringing up the speculation that has persisted for years that he — not the late Robert Kardashian Sr. — might be the father of Khloé, 34. “Bob Kardashian was like a brother to me,” the former football player said. “He’s a great guy. He met and married Kris [Jenner] and they really had a terrific time together when they were together.”

“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,” O.J. stated. “And I never got any indication that she had any interest in me. So all of these stories are just bogus. Bad. Tasteless.” That seems pretty definitive, huh?

O.J. went on to say, “Khloé, like all the girls, I’m very proud of. Just like I know Bob would be if he was here. But the simple facts of the matter is she’s not mine.”

The Heisman Trophy recipient also spoke a little bit about how a lot of the people spreading these rumors claim to be his managers, but they are decidedly not. He said one manager he had died years ago, and those claiming to be now are just people he’s worked on a deal or two with.

So other than those fake managers allegedly spreading false info, why does anyone believe Rob was not Khloé’s biological father? For starters, in 2013, the Kardashians’ stepmom, Ellen Pierson, came forward and said Robert “confessed” that Khloé was not his biological daughter not long before his 2003 death — although she never identified who the “real father” is. At the time, Ellen told In Touch, “I am simply stating the facts and the truth — their father’s truth.”

For what it’s worth, Kris has always denied that she had an affair with the former NFL star. But that’s not dramatic enough for people, so the rumors will probably persist despite both Kris and O.J. denying the possibility.
