Late Night: 'I'm Khloe Kardashian's father,' says Tracy Morgan
Put a microphone in front of him and Tracy Morgan can be relied on to say something outrageous -- and that's putting it mildly. On Wednesday night, the "30 Rock" star visited "Conan" and made a jaw-dropping claim: He is Khloe Kardashian's father.
It all began innocently enough. Conan O'Brien asked Morgan about his fondness for the reality series "Khloe & Lamar," which just wrapped its second season with an episode about the paternity rumors swirling around the youngest Kardashian sister. (If you have no idea what I'm talking about, consider yourself one of the lucky ones.)
In response to O'Brien's question, Morgan replied, "Test results just came back. She’s my daughter." He claimed that Khloe was the result of a "threesome" that also involved O.J. Simpson and that he met "the mom, Krissi" -- otherwise known as Kris Jenner -- after the Penn Relays in Philadelphia. (A reference to Bruce Jenner, maybe? When it comes to Morgan, it's impossible to know.)
A strange beginning, to be sure, but the story has a happy ending. "Khloe's mine, and she loves her father. We spoke on the phone, and she loves Daddy," Morgan explained before giving a shout-out to his "daughter: "I love you, booby!"
Morgan clearly had family on the brain last night. He also made the following outlandish claims: He is a descendant of Clark Gable; Charlton "Chuck" Heston is his "great-great-uncle"; and Michelle Obama will become pregnant if President Obama wins a second term.
We'll take your word for it, Tracy.
