Caitlyn Jenner is revealing secrets of the Kardashian family, as well as some of her own, while promoting her appropriately titled new book, “The Secrets of My Life.”
In a new interview with Andy Cohen on Sirius XM, the former Olympian and reality star said that she knew that O.J. Simpson was guilty of murdering his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.
“I knew he did it,” Jenner said. “There was three people at the crime scene. DNA evidence, three people at the crime scene. Pick a murderer. How hard is that?”
Jenner also explained that the 1995 trial was hard on the Kardashian family. She would know. Jenner married Kris in 1991, the same year Kris divorced Robert Kardashian. Although Robert was O.J. Simpson’s friend and attorney, Kris was also good friends with Nicole and believed O.J. had murdered her. Jenner said that the trial was toughest on Kourtney and Kim Kardashian, the oldest of Kris and Robert’s four children.
“At that time, where the hard part was during the trial is mostly Kourtney and Kimberly because they were a little bit older and their dad, who they love and adore, which they should, is on one side and we’re on the other,” Jenner said. “And so it was more tough on them than it was on us. We pretty much knew. We were just obviously very disappointed with the verdict.”
Jenner also said that she feels Robert believed O.J. was guilty, as well, though he didn’t say that specifically.
“Robert just said to me that ‘I would have been okay if they got him in the first trial.’ That’s the only thing he ever said and that’s about the closest he’ll ever come, never saying he actually did it,” Jenner said.
According to Jenner, that discussion took place during the 1998 civil trial, which found O.J. guilty of manslaughter.
