Kris Jenner affairs have circulated through the rumor mills for years. The first of 10 episodes of American Crime Story: The People v O.J. Simpson aired earlier this week, and in its wake websites and tabloids are once again buzzing with one such rumor that surfaced years ago and has never completely disappeared.
A long-time rumored Kris Jenner affair is one with O.J. Simpson. Jenner has called her relationship with Simpson one that is more like that of a sister and a big brother, but rumors of Kris and an affair with Simpson have been around for years. Adding to this rumored affair is the fact that people have also questioned the identity of Khloe Kardashian over the years, as she doesn’t bear a strong resemblance to her sisters, the children of Kris and her ex-husband Armenian Robert Kardashian. In 2013, there were rumors that O.J. Simpson was her father and that she was conceived through an affair with Kris Jenner.
There has never been proof of Kris in an affair with O.J.’s despite years of speculation, and she has consistently and vehemently denied it happened. Gossip Cop ran a story yesterday in which they addressed recent tabloid stories that brought the long-ago-debunked rumors back in the public eye. In their report, they confirm that Kris and ex-husband Robert Kardashian were close friends with O.J., but that there has never been any evidence of a Kris Jenner affair with Simpson.
The involvement of Kris in an affair is cited as the reason for her split from Kardashian father Robert, however. In her memoir, Kris Jenner… And All Things Kardashian, Jenner talked about her 24-year-old lover, who she referred to as “Ryan,” and their “wild crazy sex.” Last year, Radar Online reported that Jenner carried on an affair with Todd Waterman for two years and that he was the “Ryan” referred to in her memoir. At the time of this Kris Jenner affair, she was 36 years old and Waterman was 24. Radar Online also reported that, according to their interview with Waterman’s mother Ilza Waterman, Jenner paid him to not speak to anyone about it. Waterman’s mom disclosed that Waterman wanted to talk to the media about his Kris Jenner affair when reports came out that their affair was the reason for her divorce from Robert Kardashian. But, according to Ilza Waterman, Kris wanted to put a stop to it and did so by paying Todd and insisting that he sign a document in which he agreed to never disclose the truth about their affair.
Waterman reportedly initially refused to agree to never speak of his Kris Jenner affair, telling her that he would sign her agreement only if she would sign something similar for him. He told her that he didn’t want her to use his name to build up her public image. Jenner firmly declined and was visibly upset, and Waterman signed away his ability to ever talk about his Kris Jenner affair to make her happy according to Ilza Waterman. In the summer of 2012, Waterman appeared on Keeping Up with the Kardashians in a scene where the two bumped into each other while playing tennis. Ilza Waterman says that was staged, not coincidental, but denies reports that he was paid for his appearance. Ilza also stated that Jenner told her and her son that she was separated when the affair took place and that she was always “sweet”, “honest”, and driven. She said they went everywhere together and that Khloe even visited her home. She was shocked when she learned she was married during their relationship.
