O.J. Simpson may have never hunted down “the real killers,” but it seems he’s convinced that he’s found Khloe Kardashian’s real father.
And all he had to do was look in a mirror.
Yes, for years, rumors that O.J. is Khloe’s dad have persistently wended their way across the social media landscape.
It sounds absurd, and there’s certainly nothing in the way of hard evidence, but there are enough questions surrounding the situation to make it seem plausible to some conspiracy theorists.
Khloe has denied the rumors repeatedly, but fans remain deeply curious as to why she’s a full foot taller than either of her sisters.
In all likelihood, it’s just a quirk of genetics, but the fact that Kris Jenner was close friends with O.J. around the time Khloe was conceived is enough to keep the rumor mill churning.
Now, a new report from Star magazine has added fuel to the fire and convinced many that the truth is out about Khloe’s disputed paternity.
The tabloid claims that Khloe recently took it upon herself to contact O.J. and grill the disgraced football star about his relationship with her mother.
“Khloe had brushed this off for so long, but becoming a mom made her realize that it’s important to know the truth [about her lineage],” a source tells the tabloid.
“Apparently, it was a pretty tense and tearful confrontation, but Khloe is finally on the path to learning the truth.”
Star doesn’t explicitly claim that O.J. told Khloe he’s her dad, but — why else would the “confrontation” have been “tense and tearful”?
For his part, Simpson has repeatedly denied the rumors.
When a cheeky TMZ pap approached O.J. after Khloe delivered her baby last year and asked if congratulations were in order, the Juice played it cool.
“Well, for [Robert Kardashian], God bless his soul, yeah… I don’t think for me, I have nothing to do with it.”
The last time this rumor made tabloid headlines, O.J.’s attorney issued a statement in an effort to set the record straight.
“Mr. Simpson has said all along that he has absolutely nothing to do with paternity regarding any Kardashian kid (as has Kris Jenner), but he certainly wishes all of them well,” read the statement.
And hey, if you can’t trust a lawyer for O.J. Simpson, who can you trust?!
