Has O.J. Simpson really been binge-watching “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” since being released from prison last month? That’s the absurd claim in one of this week’s new tabloids, which says the ex-con and former football star is a superfan of the reality series. Gossip Cop can exclusively clear up the situation.

Simpson was released on parole on October 1 after spending nine years in a Nevada prison for armed robbery, and now according to the National Enquirer, he’s been spending most of his time as a free man catching up on the “Kardashians.” An alleged insider tells the magazine, “O.J. missed a lot of episodes of ‘KUWTK.’ One of the first things he did when he got out was binge-watch! He can’t believe that Kim is using a surrogate and hopes Kourtney and Scott work things out.”

Despite how unlikely this all sounds, Gossip Cop reached out to Simpson’s attorney and additional sources, none of whom had any knowledge of the former NFL player binge-watching “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” In fact, it doesn’t appear the recently-paroled ex-footballer has been sitting at home and watching TV since getting out of his prison cell. Recent reports indicate Simpson has been “a man about town” in Las Vegas since his release. The disgraced athlete has been spotted at many restaurants, shopping centers and bars as of late. It’s unlikely a man who just spent nine years behind bars would choose to sit in his house and watch reality TV.

Additionally, this isn’t the first time Gossip Cop has had to call out the Enquirer for publishing a bogus story surrounding the former NFL player and the E! series. Earlier this year, we debunked the tabloid’s ridiculous report claiming Simpson would be joining “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” once he got paroled. Obviously, he hasn’t become the show’s newest cast member and he’s not watching every episode either.
