Caitlyn Jenner has claimed she and ex-wife Kris Jenner both knew O.J. Simpson was guilty of murder.
The 69-year-old former sportsman was found not guilty of killing ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman after a lengthy trial, on which Kris‘ first husband Robert Kardashian formed part of the defense team.
O.J.’s tale has been in the headlines more in recent months, thanks to programs such as The People v O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.
On Wednesday (26Apr17) Caitlyn was asked her opinion on the case during a Sirius XM Town Hall interview with Andy Cohen.
“I knew he did it,” Caitlyn stated. “There was three people at the crime scene. DNA evidence, three people at the crime scene. Pick a murderer. How hard is that?”
Kris was married to Robert between 1978 and 1991, and wed Caitlyn, then Bruce Jenner, later in 1991.
The O.J. trial began in 1994, and Caitlyn added to Andy that Kris was very sure of which side she was backing in the case.
“Kris was on my side,” Caitlyn added.
In The People v O.J. Simpson, Robert was portrayed by David Schwimmer, with his uncertainty about the case forming a major plot point in the series.
In 1997 after a civil trial, O.J. was found liable for the wrongful death of and battery against Goldman, and battery against Brown. Caitlyn reveals it was after that trial that Robert indicated to her that had his suspicions over the sportsman’s innocence from the beginning.
“In the book I talk about only one time after the second (1997 civil) trial and the whole thing was over. Robert just said to me that ‘I would have been OK if they got him in the first trial,'” Caitlyn explained.
“That’s the only thing he ever said and that’s about the closest he’ll ever come, never saying he actually did it. Robert, in the first trial, he was now the guy who helped him get away with murder and he was destroyed by everyone. And I felt terribly sorry for him.”
