The internet has always been buzzing with rumors about the paternity of reality star Khloé Kardashian, with some speculating that former NFL player O.J. Simpson could be her biological father. But how did these rumors come about, and is there any truth to them? Are Khloe Kardashian and O.J. Simpson really related or is Robert Kardashian her true father? This is why people believe the rumors.

The Relationship Between Khloe Kardashian and O.J. Simpson

The long-standing rumors regarding Khloé Kardashian’s paternity, particularly the speculation that she might be the daughter of O.J. Simpson, have been a recurring topic among fans of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. These rumors gained traction after Kris Jenner acknowledged in her memoir, “Kris Jenner and All Things Kardashian,” that she had an affair while married to Robert Kardashian.

After divorcing Kris Jenner, Robert Kardashian married Jan Ashley. Following Robert’s death in 2003, Ashley claimed that he confided in her that Khloé wasn’t his biological daughter. In a 2012 interview, Ashley alleged that Robert told her, “Khloé is not his kid,” stating it matter-of-factly, indicating that she wasn’t really a Kardashian.

Rumors speculating that O.J. Simpson was Khloé Kardashian’s biological father gained momentum after Robert Kardashian, who was Simpson’s lawyer during the 1994 murder trial, was alleged to have hinted at this to his ex-wife Jan Ashley. Simpson’s connection to the Kardashian family through Robert further fueled these rumors.

Despite both Khloé Kardashian and O.J. Simpson denying paternity speculation on multiple occasions, the issue was addressed on a 2012 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. In Season 7, Episode 1, titled “Who’s Your Daddy,” Kris Jenner urged Khloé to take a DNA test to put an end to the rumors. Kris emphasized her support for Khloé’s peace of mind, acknowledging the absurdity of the rumors but understanding Khloé’s need to address them.

Both of Them Continued to Deny the Rumors

Despite Kris Jenner’s efforts to convince her other children, Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, and Rob Kardashian, to take DNA tests for comparison, Khloé remained steadfast. She expressed her conviction that Robert Kardashian was her father and that Caitlyn Jenner was her other father, stating that she didn’t need a DNA test to confirm her family ties. Khloé emphasized her gratitude for having two wonderful fathers and refused to entertain doubts about her paternity.

He acknowledged Kris Jenner’s attractiveness but clarified that he was dating supermodels at the time, implying that the rumors about him being Khloé’s father were unfounded. Simpson unequivocally stated that the speculation regarding Khloé’s paternity was not true.
