So shocking! We sometimes forget that before she became a reality star and momager, Kris Jenner was best friends with O.J. Simpson the wife he was acquitted of murdering, Nicole Brown Simpson. Kris is now revealing how The Juice tried to proclaim his innocence to her!
Wow! Kris Jenner, 60, is sharing some major details about the shocking murder of her best friend, and how O.J. Simpson tried desperately to convince her that he wasn’t the one that stabbed Nicole Brown Simpson to death outside the front door of her Brentwood townhouse. Read on for what he said to Kris, and what she really believed happened!
“I talked to him while he was in jail,” Kris told PEOPLE magazine. “He was trying to tell me he didn’t do it, and what he thought had happened. I just listened to him, to what he was saying to me.” But his pleas didn’t sway her and she still believes O.J. to be responsible for the horrific crime. “I’m a very logical person,” she continued.”I want to give everybody the benefit of the doubt, but the evidence was so strong. [What he said] didn’t have any effect on what I thought.”
The June 13, 1994 crime had a huge impact on Kris’ world, as not only were her and then-husband Robert Kardashian extremely close to O.J. and Nicole, the late attorney went on to defend O.J. against the murder charges at his criminal trial. He and his team of attorneys helped sway a jury to acquit the former NFL great of the crime, which all being retold through the upcoming FX miniseries The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.
“I went to bed one night and the next morning, my entire universe had changed,” Kris added. “[OJ and Nicole] were two of the best friends I ever had in my entire life. It was devastating because not only did I mourn the loss of Nicole, but I mourned the loss of OJ and that relationship,” the reality star shared. How sad!
