O.J. Simpson wasted no time using his new Twitter account to address rumors that he had an affair with Kris Jenner and is the birth father of her daughter, Khloe Kardashian.
Keeping up with his ‘tradition’ of a-video-per day, the ex-NFL star took to his three-day-old Twitter account on Sunday to debunk rumors that he was ever romantically involved with Kris or that he is Khloe’s real dad.

Simpson started by saying Kris’s ex-husband and Khloe’s dad, Robert Kardashian “is like a brother” to him.
The Simpsons and the Kardashians also appear to have been close friends, and Kris named her daughter Kendall Nicole Jenner -- who was born the same year Simpson was acquitted -- after the late Nicole.
“Never – and I wanna stress, Never! – in any way, shape, or form, have I ever had any interest in Kris romantically or sexually,” the former football star began in a two-minute video. “And I never got any indication that she had any interest in me.”
“All of these stories are just bogus, bad, tasteless,” he added before addressing the bit about Khloe, 34, being his real child:
“Khloe, like all the girls, I’m very proud of, just like I know Bob would be if he was here, but the simple fact of the matter is that she’s not mine.”
Speculations surrounding Khloe’s paternity have been swirling for many years, but they were revived last month when Norman Pardo, who claimed to be Simpson’s former manager, maintained that the former athlete once confessed to a sexual “hot-tub” encounter with Kris, 63.
“I’ve always managed my own affairs,” Simpson continued in the Twitter clip. “So, when you see these guys like [Norman Pardo] and these guys claim that they are my manager, it’s just not true.”
“I may have done a deal here or there with them, but none of these guys were ever remotely anything like a manager for me,” he finished.
Simpson’s attempt at setting the record straight concerning him, Kris, and Khloe, appears to be the fulfillment of a statement he made in a previous video.
The former “Buffalo Bills” running back tweeted out a clip where he told his followers he’d be addressing falsehoods that have been spread about him.
“For years people have been able to say whatever they want about me with no accountability, but now I get to challenge a lot of that BS and set the record straight.”
In his very first Twitter video, Simpson, 71, had users perplexed after making a cryptic comment about having “a little getting even to do.”
Since his 2017 release from prison where he served nine years for robbery and kidnapping charges, Simpson mostly maintained a low profile. With his growing social media presence, however, it appears the once-beloved "The Juice" is emerging from the shadows.
