In an interview with TMZ Sports over the weekend, O.J. Simpson denied a rumor that he is the biological father of Khloe Kardashian.

The interviewer congratulated Simpson on Khloe's pregnancy, which prompted Simpson to say: "Well, for Bob [Kardashian], God bless his soul, yeah. I don't know for me. I don't think for me I have nothing to do with it. ... I would be proud ... but trust me, I had nothing to do with it."

The late Robert Kardashian was a close personal friend of Simpson's, as well as one of his lawyers during the infamous 1995 murder trial.

Like Simpson, Robert Kardashian attended the University of Southern California, and he lived in California until his death from esophageal cancer in 2003.

Khloe is 33 years of age and was born in 1984, which was five years after Simpson's NFL playing career came to an end.

Robert Kardashian was a driving force behind Simpson's acquittal in 1995, but the former Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers running back still spent time behind bars from 2008 through 2017 following a conviction for armed robbery stemming from a 2007 incident in Las Vegas.

Simpson was granted parole last July, and he was officially released in October.

The 70-year-old Simpson has fathered five children.
