One of Hollywood’s most famous rumors might actually be true.
In a new O.J. Simpson documentary by Reelz, the former NFL MVP’s prison guard, Jeffrey Felix, claims that he thinks Simpson is the father of pop culture icon Khloe Kardashian.
“Khloe is his favorite,” Felix says, as transcribed by Black Sports Online. “The mom Kardashian does not talk to O.J. She?s upset with O.J. for her thinking that he killed her best friend, Nicole Brown. But I know he still talks to Khloe behind her back. In the prison, the phone calls have to be made out by O.J., so he would call at least once a week. That was his way of keeping up with the Kardashians.
“Apparently, one of their conversations was about whether O.J. may be Khloe’s father. She was very upset and O.J. was trying to calm her down. One day I could hear Khloe screaming in the phone. He said she was upset because she wanted him to take a paternity test, because the media is all over him, to see if O.J. is her actual dad — and O.J. told her ‘no.’ A few minutes after that phone call he pulled me up and asked me what I would do, and I told the Juice to take it, and he said ‘no.’ And I said, ‘Why won?t you take it?’ He said: ‘It?s a family matter, it?s none of the public?s business.'”
Rob Kardashian, the man thought to be Khloe’s biological father, is often referred to as “the man who saved O.J.” In the days after Nicole Brown’s murder, Simpson stayed with Rob, who later was a member of his defense team. Simpson was a well-documented womanizer and even hit on friends’ wives and girlfriends.
Khloe’s sister, Kim, famously denied that O.J. was her sister’s father in 2012, but unless Simpson takes a paternity test or Kris Jenner speaks up herself, it likely will go down as just another unsolved mystery surrounding Simpson.
