After news broke that O.J. Simpson was granted parole, the social media trolls came out of hiding to reignite the age-old rumor that the former football star is actually Khloé Kardashian‘s father. From Twitter to Instagram, Khloé was flooded with tired memes about her paternity and asked over and over again whether she was excited her “daddy” was coming home.
“Your dad is coming home!!!! So happy for you,” one commenter sarcastically wrote under her latest Instagram selfie while another tweeted, “Will Tristan have to ask Caitlyn or OJ for Khloe’s hand in marriage?” As expected, Khloé did not hesitate to clap back at the haters. “People are a–holes, but I don’t care lol,” she wrote. “I focus on the good.” In another response, she added, “They are all f–ked lol such a–holes. Hehe oh well… I’m happy and they hatin.”
This topic of conversation has fascinated followers of the famous family since their show first aired in 2007, given that she looks a little different from sisters Kourtney and Kim (maybe she inherited all of the height genes). But the truth remains that the late Robert Kardashian Sr. is the 32-year-old’s biological father.
Rumors that Khloé is O.J.’s offspring first began after information about Kris Jenner and Robert’s close bond with the former athlete and his second wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, was revealed. The foursome would often vacation together while both of their marriages were still intact.
Their friendship was so strong, in fact, that Robert served as one of O.J.’s defense attorneys in his infamous 1995 murder trial and Kris gave daughter Kendall Jenner the middle name Nicole in memory of her late friend. A big storyline in Season 7 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians was the question of Khloé’s paternity and whether or not she’d be willing to take a DNA test to settle the issue once and for all. Kris had previously admitted to having an affair around the time her third daughter was conceived.
Ultimately, the Strong Looks Better Naked author refused to take the test. “Seriously, my dad is Robert Kardashian,” she told her mom at the time. “If you f–ked other people during the same time and you do not know, go on Maury!” Khloé joked about her paternity in October when one Instagram commenter asked why she looked white in a particular picture. “I don’t know… Some days I’m O.J.’s daughter. Others I’m Robert’s daughter,” she responded.
At least the blonde beauty can have a sense of humor about it!
