Caitlyn Jenner claims she knew O.J. "did it," but that she wasn’t the only one who believed the former NFL running back was guilty of the double murder involving his ex-wife.
During an interview with Andy Cohen on Sirius XM on Wednesday, Jenner took the opportunity to not only promote her book, "The Secrets of My Life," and open up about the Kardashian family, but she also revealed some things about the late Robert Kardashian, who divorced Kris Jenner in 1991 and was also an attorney and friend of Simpson.
Jenner said she thinks Kardashian knew O.J. Simpson was guilty of murdering Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman, though he never said so directly, the Business Insider noted.
Simpson was acquitted of the murders in 1995 and later found liable for the deaths in a civil trial.
"Robert just said to me that 'I would have been OK 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.
Jenner said Simpson’s trial caused problems for the Kardashian family because while Robert Kardashian was representing O.J. during his lengthy trial, Kris, who had been good friends with Nicole, believed Simpson had killed her.
"I knew he did it," Jenner told Cohen.
"There was three people at the crime scene: DNA evidence, three people at the crime scene," she said in reference to Simpson and the two murder victims. "Pick a murderer. How hard is that?"
Jenner said the trial was hard on the kids too, especially the Kardashians' oldest children, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian.
"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," she said.
Jenner said that after Simpson’s first trial, Kardashian had become known as "the guy who helped him [Simpson] get away with murder and he was destroyed by everybody. And I felt terribly sorry for him," USA Today noted.
"Robert was a very good person," Jenner said. "I really liked Robert. Robert and I had a very good relationship. He was a very good parent. He was great with the kids…"
Simpson, 69, is expected to become a free man later this year after having served nearly 10 years for a 2007 armed robbery and kidnapping incident in Las Vegas.
