Sorry, Khloé Kardashian…but O.J. Simpson is not your father. The former NFL player, 70, commented on the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star’s pregnancy during a recent interview with TMZ — and denied the conspiracy theory that he is her biological dad.
“Well, for Bob, God bless his soul. But I don’t know for me. For me, I had nothing to do with it. Khloé and the girls were all terrific girls when they were growing up. Nice and terrific,” O.J. — who was friends with Khloé’s late father, Robert Kardashian, aka “Bob" — said. “I think today they’re still nice and terrific. Except they've kinda added sex appeal to their résumé. I’m happy for them.”
He added, “Congratulations to [Khloé]. But trust me, I had nothing to do with it. I would be proud if I had anything to do with it, but I don’t. God bless her!” O.J.’s comments come after years of fan speculation that Kris Jenner had an affair with the fallen sports figure and that KoKo (who is expecting her first child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson) was the result.
Back in 2012, Kris spoke out about the unfounded rumors surrounding Khloé’s biological father during an appearance on Good Morning America. “It just gets weirder and weirder: I have never heard such crap in my life,” the momager said at the time. “I mean, I was there! I gave birth, I know who the dad was.”
O.J. was successfully defended by Robert, an attorney and longtime pal, during his 1995 murder trial, during which he was acquitted of killing estranged wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. In 2007, O.J. found himself in legal turmoil again after he and several accomplices entered a room at Las Vegas’ Palace Station hotel-casino and took sports memorabilia at gunpoint. After serving nine years in jail, the convict was granted parole in July. He was released early from his original 33-year prison sentence this past October.
