The trial of O.J. Simpson was well-documented on TV, in papers, and basically anywhere else that covered news.
In 1994, O.J. Simpson was alleged to have killed his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.
His lawyer, Robert Kardashian, worked hard to let O.J. walk free, and it worked.
Because one of the gloves didn't fit, O.J. Simpson was found not guilty of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman's murders.
The Kardashains, as you may have heard, are now pretty famous. That has more to do with their social media presence than their involvement with O.J. Simpson, but that doesn't mean they're immune from the connection.
Robert Kardashian passed away in 2003, before he could see his former client walk free after being in prison on robbery charges. The belief many people held is that Kardashian knew Simpson was guilty, and so did the rest of the family.
Caitlyn Jenner, formerly married to Kardashian's ex-wife Kris Jenner, added fuel to these fires when she appeared on The Kyle and Jackie O Show recently.
“We pretty much knew he was guilty right from the beginning,' Jenner said. "But the whole thing was, ‘Is he going to get away with it?'”
Caitlyn recalls Kris Jenner speaking on the phone with Nicole Simpson weeks before her death.
“He says he’s going to kill me and get away with it because he’s O.J. Simpson,” Nicole told Kris, according to Caitlyn. “At the time, she brushed it off and was like, ‘Come on, please, please, please.' But unfortunately, it was right.”
“We were in [prosecutor] Marcia Clark’s office at the courthouse when the verdict came down,” Caitlyn recalled. “Kris turned around and looked at me and said, ‘You know, we should have listened to Nicole. She was right from the beginning.'”
“He got away with it to some extent,” Caitlyn said. “You know, his life has been ruined — which is good. I don’t think he is a threat to society [anymore]. I don’t know. Who knows? I’ve never, ever talked to him, nor do I want to.”
That last sentence is possibly the most interesting of them all. "I’ve never, ever talked to him, nor do I want to.” This is easily proved false. There are pictures of the Jenners and Browns vacationing together, so to say they've never talked is a lie.
But if you're going to take a shot at O.J. Simpson, you better be ready for him to hit back. And that's exactly what Simpson just did.
TMZ caught Simpson out in his new residence of Las Vegas when they asked him about Caitlyn Jenner's new comments.
"I don't know Caitlyn, I've never met Caitlyn, as far as Bruce [Caitlyn Jenner before she transitioned] is concerned, I didn't really know him that well," Simpson says. "But if he wants to live his life out as [an] old lady instead of an old man...hey, women live longer! He might be on to something!"
Both parties claim to have never met, but sources say this is far from the truth.
“Bruce and O.J. have a lot in common,” said an insider. “They were two of the biggest sports stars of the ’70s, they ran in the same circles and they were adored by women everywhere. Bruce didn’t have any friends, so Kris would ask Nicole if O.J. could take him out and about."
O.J. Simpson will always be a hot topic in pop culture, but adding the Kardashians to the mix makes it even juicier. Do you think the family knew Simpson was guilty of murder?
