(Video) O.J. Simpson Proudly Breaks Silence On Claims He’s Khloe Kardashian’s Father
For years, rumors have circulated about Khloe Kardashian’s paternity and quite frankly, for years we, here at ILoveOldSchoolMusic, couldn’t care less about it. However, it wasn’t until rumors began to surface that a few Old School legends could be the pappy and that’s when it finally caught our attention. For a while, there were whispers that Lionel Richie was Khloe’s pops, after he was reportedly linked to her mom, Kris Jenner, back in the day. [FYI: Richie’s daughter Sofia looks a LOT like Khloe by the way]. Then came the one rumor that surfaced and has kept on stickin’- that O.J. Simpson could be the daddy.
The ‘daddy’ topic even became part of the storyline on the Kardashian family’s reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. There has been a lot of speculation that O.J. is the pappy, as opposed to the late Robert (Bob) Kardashian, O.J.’s friend and attorney who represented him during his murder trial. But TMZ reported early Wednesday morning that “The Juice” has now categorically denied that claim…
A reporter caught up with O.J. in Las Vegas over the weekend, as he exited a shop with his daughter, Sydney. He asked the controversial NFL legend and Heisman Trophy winner if congratulations were in order, suggesting that he would be a grandfather again when Khloe’s unborn baby is born. Sporting LaSean McCoy’s No. 25 Buffalo Bills jersey, O.J. picked up what the reporter was puttin’ down and responded that the rumors just aren’t true:
TMZ: “Are congratulations in order?”
O.J.: “For what?”
TMZ: “We hear that Khloe finally announced that she’s pregnant.”
Upon hearing the question, Sydney burst out into laughter, joined by her dad. She kept it moving, but O.J. indulged the reporter, explaining that if Robert (Bob) was alive, it would be good news for him. But for O.J., Khloe’s announcement just warrants his well-wishes:
“Well, for Bob, God bless his soul, yeah,” O.J. replied. “I don’t know for me. I don’t think for me I have nothing to do with it.”
Simpson explained that “Khloe and the girls were all terrific girls when they were growing up” and he thinks they are nice and terrific girls now. He noted that they have “added sex appeal to their resume” but he’s happy for their success. O.J. offered his best to Khloe.
“I would be proud… but trust me, I had nothing to do with it,” O.J. said.
When you think about it, the question in and of itself, was a low-key diss that O.J. could have addressed a whole different way. It clearly implies that he would have had an affair with his best friend’s wife in order to pull off being Khloe’s dad. But the football OG has been through worse and has probably gotten used to being falsely accused, at least according to his sides of the stories. Either way, Sydney wasn’t here for any of it. We echo her sentiments on this one though, as she was heard in the background saying, “Really???!!!” Yep, they tried it with this one, just sayin.’
