Caitlyn Jenner, reality TV star, spoke candidly about the OJ Simpson trial.
She specifically spoke about the incident when OJ Simpson was acquitted of murder openly and honestly with fellow campmates Kate Garraway and Jacqueline Jossa.
According to the Manchester Evening News, the I’m A Celebrity star divulged on the chilling reaction of ex-wife Kris Jenner to the news.
Caitlyn was living as Bruce and was married to Kris, Kris being the ex-wife of Robert Kardashian, OJ’s defense lawyer. The trial was very close to Caitlyn’s heart. The former Olympian also talked about the vacation with OJ and Nicole.
Father to Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, and Robert Junior, Robert made up a part of the professional footballer’s defense counsel for his 1995 trial wherein he turned into accused of murdering his spouse Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman. Although OJ became evident in the televised trial, which lasted 11 months, and he has continually denied homicide, Caitlyn branded the trial a ‘joke.’
She said that she saw Nicole, Kris’s best friend at that time, just two days before she was brutally murdered.
She stated that It was a “bad time” for everybody and was “very difficult.”
She believes that what happened at the trial was a joke, and when the verdict came down, Kris just turned around to her and went, “we should have listened to Nicole from the beginning. She was right.”
She also explained how she broke the news to Kourtney and Kimberly, and she said: “That night when the verdict came in Kourtney and Kimberly were in school, and they loved their father, and they should, and they’d been following this for a year and a half and when they walked in the door.
“I think it was Kourtney who said, ‘Well, I told you he didn’t do it.’
“And I just said to the girls, ‘just because he got a not guilty doesn’t mean he didn’t do it and I don’t want his name ever mentioned in this house again.'”
Jacqueline then asked whether Caitlyn thought Robert knew ‘the truth.’ To which Caitlyn replied: “I mean, there’s just no way he didn’t know.”
Before getting up, the parent of Kendall and Kylie Jenner was asked whether she liked OJ, Caitlyn added: “No. Too big an ego for me.
“We went on some vacations together with OJ and Nicole and the kids. I liked Nicole, and she sure didn’t deserve what she got.”
