“O.J., you are not the father!” Maury Povich could have had a record-breaking episode if he administered a paternity test to Khloe Kardashian and O.J. Simpson, but apparently, there is no need to prove her paternal parentage. O.J. Simpson is on Twitter and on Father’s Day, he made a special announcement to clear up some rumors and spoke about his good friend Robert G. Kardashian whom he affectionately called Bob. He also made it clear that Bob is Khloe’s dad.
Robert Kardashian was Kris Jenner’s first husband and together they had four children: Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, and Robert Jr. They were married from 1978 until 1991 when they were divorced. While O.J. Simpson and Robert Kardashian were close friends (Robert defended O.J. during his murder trial), Kris Jenner and Nicole Brown Simpson were best friends. There was reported contention between Kris and Robert throughout O.J.’s 1995 double murder trial. O.J. Simpson was acquitted of the 1994 murders of his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her close friend Ronald Goldman. Robert Kardashian is credited with that acquittal.
As Kris Jenner and O.J. Simpson knew each other well, and some believe that Khloe doesn’t resemble her siblings, rumors have circulated suggesting that Kris Jenner and O.J. Simpson may have had an affair and that he was possibly Khloe Kardashian’s real father.
Now that O.J. Simpson is on social media and learning how to use Twitter, he’s announced that one of his main goals is to reel in some of the rumors that have run rampant and now that he has a platform he is going to speak out.
And that’s exactly what he’s doing — speaking out.
In the short time that O.J. Simpson has been on Twitter, he’s garnered more than 700,000 followers and his tweets have gone viral. The Father’s Day tweet he shared has more than 42,000 likes, over 8,000 retweets and 6,000 and counting comments.
You may watch the Father’s Day video that O.J. shared in the video player below. He emphatically states that he did not have a romantic interest in Kris Jenner and is not Khloe’s father.

The response to O.J. Simpsons using Twitter has been mixed, but the memes and jokes are plentiful. It may take a while for O.J. Simpson to learn how to adequately navigate social media. The football star and Heisman Trophy winner is 71-years-old and may not be as savvy as Kris Jenner when it comes to dominating social media.
After all, Kris Jenner is credited with building the careers of her children and being the marketing force that drove Bruce Jenner back into the spotlight during their marriage.
Who knows, maybe Kris Jenner will offer O.J. Simpson some tips and help him build his brand. Then again, maybe not.
