OJ Simpson speaks out about being Khloe Kardashian's dad on Father's Day

OJ Simpson has spoken out about rumours he's Khloe Kardashian's real father after years of whispers.

The former football star, who was infamously acquitted of the 1994 murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, used to have a very close friendship with Khloe's parents, Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner.

Despite repeated denials from all involved, rumours have swirled for years that Robert - who defended OJ at his murder trial - isn't Khloe's biological father, and that she's actually the product of an affair between Kris and OJ.

Talking to the camera, he told his followers that he's never had any sexual attraction to Kris and that there's no way he could be Khloe's real father.

Speaking on Father's Day, he said: "My life has always been involved in the sports world and I suspect as the weeks go on that's pretty much what I'll be talking about, but once in a while I'm going to go off topic and talk about something else and this is one of those times.

"You know, Bob Kardashian, he's like a brother to me, he's a great guy. He met and married Kris and they really had a terrific time together when they were together.

"Unfortunately that ended, but never, and I want to stress, never in any way, shape or form have I ever had any interest in Kris, romantically, sexually, and I never got any indication that she ever had any interest in me.

"So all of these stories are just bogus, bad, and tasteless. 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 she's not mine.

"Now, one of the people spreading this rumour is a guy the media loves to say is my manager."

OJ said the only manager he's had his whole life was a man named Chuck Barnes, who signed him after he came out of USC.

Chuck died 45 years ago, and ever since then, OJ says he's managed his own affairs.

OJ ends the message by wishing his followers a "Happy Father's Day".

He captioned the video: "The first thing I want to set straight is this story Pardo (who was not my manger) is talking about all over the media regarding me & @ KrisJenner"
