Rumors have long swirled that former football star, acquitted double-murder suspect, and current prison inmate O.J. Simpson could be Khloe Kardashian’s real biological father. Now, according to a former Lovelock Correctional Center prison guard, Jeffrey Felix, the facility has already given permission for a paternity test to take place (Lovelock is the Nevada prison that O.J. Simpson currently calls home). However, O.J. has a condition if Khloe Kardashian expects him to open wide for a DNA swab.
So, what does O.J. Simpson want from Khloe Kardashian? According to NY Daily News, O.J. doesn’t want much, just a visit from his famous “maybe daughter.”
O.J. Simpson was once close friends with the late lawyer (and Khloe’s legal father) Robert Kardashian. Apparently, he may have been even closer friends with Kris Jenner (formerly Kris Kardashian), Khloe’s mom and Robert’s former wife. For years, there has been talk that Kris had an affair with O.J., and now it appears that O.J. Simpson himself is lending credence to these rumors by agreeing to a paternity test to prove (or disprove) that Khloe is his biological daughter.
According to Jeffrey Felix, who wrote a book about his time at Lovelock called Guarding the Juice, O.J. wants Khloe Kardashian to “show him a little respect” by visiting him in the clink.
“He wants to talk to her about some other things too, but more importantly like her he wants to know if she is his daughter.”
According to reports, and included in the documentary The Man Who Saved O.J. Simpson, Felix publicly claimed that Khloe Kardashian has begged O.J. Simpson to answer her paternity questions by participating in a DNA test to determine if he is, in fact, her biological dad.
Khloe is (legally) the third of four children belonging to her legal father, Robert. Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner divorced 25 years ago in 1991, and Robert Kardashian passed away from cancer back in 2003.
While Khloe Kardashian has publicly gotten angry and questioned the motives of people who have called out her paternity, she herself fueled the majority of the rumors. Back on a 2009 episode of KUWTK, her family’s famous (or infamous) reality TV show, she speculated in front of the cameras that she might be adopted.
She even swabbed the inside of Kris Jenner’s cheek for a DNA sample. Apparently, Khloe Kardashian didn’t include O.J. Simpson in her last round of DNA testing attempts.
However, when Robert Kardashian’s ex-wives Ellen Kardashian and Jan Ashley spoke to Star Magazine in 2012 about the possibility that Khloe wasn’t a biological Kardashian, Khloe flipped out on social media. The maybe-Kardashian took to Twitter to vent her rage at Robert’s exes.
“The audacity you have to mention my father’s name like this! Should be ashamed of urself! I let a lot of things slide but this one is really low. YOU ARE DISGUSTING! (yes you know who YOU are).”
Kris Jenner also defended her daughter’s (seemingly questionable) paternity, calling the theory espoused by her ex-husband’s ex wives “crap” after the 2012 story.
“I was there, right. I gave birth, I know who the dad was. Everything’s good. We’re all good.”
Except maybe not. Not if Felix is telling the truth about a potential O.J. Simpson paternity test (which he claims has already been approved by the Nevada prison) and about Khloe desperately begging O.J. for a DNA sample so she can get to the bottom of her gossiped-about paternity.
Ironically, Robert Kardashian was a member of O.J. Simpson’s legal defense team during the former football player’s murder trial in 1995. Kardashian and the rest of Simpson’s “dream team” helped him evade a criminal conviction in the still-unsolved double murder of Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.
Kris Jenner (then Kris Kardashian) was reportedly close friends with Nicole Brown Simpson at the time of her murder. Jenner has also publicly admitted being unfaithful to Robert Kardashian during the pair’s marriage.
What do you think? Will there ever be a paternity test? Could O.J. Simpson really be Khloe Kardashian’s biological dad?
