Now this is the kind of story I wouldn’t poke with a ten-foot stick, ordinarily.
Paternity rumors always make me sad: there’s always one family member who seems a little different, a little “on the outside.” And as observers, we all catch ourselves trying to explain those telltale differences. Take Prince Harry, whose bad behavior and red hair make him a pretty obvious target for speculation.
Of course Khloe Kardashian is different from the other Kardashians—she’s the nice one, the funny one, the tall one, and the one with what sounds like a solid and authentic marriage—and what’s more, she was the daughter who loved father Robert Kardashian most of all. (I can’t mention enough that I’m adopted, you guys, and family is family is family. No, I am not saying Khloe is adopted.)
But this National Enquirer cover? It makes me laugh. It’s, like, “Bat Boy” silly.
The Daily Mail is weirdly stony-faced with their coverage, though:
Khloe Kardashian has been hit with wild claims that disgraced O.J. Simpson is her father.
It comes just weeks after two ex-wives of the late Robert Kardashian alleged the reality TV star wasn’t his biological daughter.
The 27-year-old is now forced to face a new devastating report suggesting that Robert’s former client and best friend O.J. is actually her real dad.
A source close to the Kardashians was quick to dismiss the allegations, telling MailOnline today: “This is ridiculous and laughable.”
Kris Jenner brushed off the allegations on her Twitter page posting: “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!! LOVE U.”
American tabloid The National Enquirer today ran a story that claimed the jailed former sportsman told friends that Khloe was his.
“O.J. told me Khloe’s his child,” a source is quoted as telling the publication.
They allege that Khloe’s mother Kris Jenner had several trysts with O.J. around the time Khloe was conceived.
They also point out the similarities Khloe shares with O.J.’s 26-year-old daughter Sydney.
Does 27-year-old Khloe Kardashian look a little like 26-year-old Sydney Simpson? Ehhhh…. I feel like she kind of very doesn’t. Not that I am taking any of this seriously; I have my salt shaker right here.
