In 2012, gossip sites said a photo of Khloe Kardashian with family hair dresser Alex Roldan proved he was her father.
Then in 2014, TMZ asked Lionel Richie if he were Khloe’s poppa. No, he said.
Now TMZ put the question to the No. 1 paternity suspect — outside of the late Robert Kardashian. A video shows O.J. Simpson denying a baby-making affair with Khloe’s mom, Kris Jenner.
“I’m happy for them,” Simpson said at a recent Las Vegas street interview, referring to Khloe’s impending motherhood with NBA player Tristan Thompson. “Congratulations to her. But trust me, I have nothing to do with it. I would be proud if I had anything to do with it, but I don’t.”
TMZ pounced to the reaction of Simpson’s offspring in the video.
“Watch O.J.’s daughter, Arnelle, in the background — she’s CONVINCED her dad’s no Kardashian creator,” TMZ said.
Hollywood Life recounted the history of the paternity story, noting: “Soon after the rumors rocked Hollywood, Khloe, Kim Kardashian, 36, and Kris Jenner all took to Twitter to laugh off rumors that Simpson was Khloe’s real father. Jan Ashley — the woman who married Robert Kardashian after his divorce to Kris — even revealed that Robert told her Khloe was not O.J.’s daughter before he [Robert] died in 2003.”
