O.J. Simpson assured he’s not Khloe Kardashian’s real father — shooting down a long-running conspiracy theory.
The former football star made the declaration over the weekend when a reporter asked him if congratulations were in order following Kardashian’s pregnancy announcement.
“Congratulations to her, but trust me I have nothing to do with it,” Simpson told a TMZ cameraman in Las Vegas. “I would be proud if I had anything to do with it, but I don’t.”
Simpson was close friends with Robert Kardashian, who was part of the former athlete’s legal defense team in his infamous 1995 murder trial. Robert Kardashian died in 2003.
Simpson, 70, and his daughter Sidney both laughed when the TMZ reporter first asked if he deserved to be congratulated.
“Well for Bob, God bless his soul, yeah,” Simpson said. “But I don’t know for me. I don’t think for me. I have nothing to do with it.”
