The National Enquirer is widely regarded as a laughingstock of journalism that every once in a while breaks bombshell news like Tiger Woods’ extramarital affairs.
We’re not sure which to file the lead story in the most recent issue under yet (we’re assuming the former) but it’s certainly just as shocking: O.J. Simpson is the father of Khloe Kardashian.
This comes weeks after the former wives of the late Robert Kardashian claimed that he was not the father of Khloe, the younger sister of Kim Kardashian who has also become a reality TV star and Mrs. Lamar Odom. The Enquirer says that Simpson used to tell friends Khloe was his daughter and the tabloid points out that the reality TV star looks eerily similar to Simpson’s daughter, Sydney.
Robert Kardashian was friends with Simpson and was one of the NFL Hall of Famer’s lawyers in the 1995 murder trial of Nicole Brown Simpson. Khloe’s mom, Kris Jenner, was close friends with Brown Simpson before her death. The story claims Simpson and Jenner had an affair in 1983.
Khloe posted this message to her Twitter feed on Thursday without directly mentioning the story: “And do they rumors ever stop? What is the recent obsession with all of this? What are they going to say next? #SoapOpera”
Replied Kris Jenner on Twitter: “Thanks for all your love and support today dolls! Wow some of the stories out there today are either fabricated, or SO 24 years ago!!”
The only other person aside Kris Jenner that would know for sure about this claim is Simpson, now 64, who of course is locked up in a Nevada prison.
And given his past, would you really believe anything he said anyway?
