Kaelin was a star witness at Simpson’s 1995 murder trial and helped the accused and his defence team win an acquittal.
The actor and reality TV star accounted for some of Simpson’s movements before the murders of his wife Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman in court.
Kaelin has always maintained that Simpson was not guilty, but a new New York Post article suggests he may have changed his tune.
He reportedly told the newspaper, “The statute of limitations has now passed… so I can now say… yes, he (Simpson) did it,” adding he was “too scared” to reveal the ‘truth’ before now.
However, Kaelin has now dismissed the Post’s report, telling TMZ.com he has been misquoted.
Asked by the website for his verdict on whether or not the fallen sports legend killed his wife, Kaelin added, “I have no first-hand knowledge.”
Simpson was acquitted of the murders in 1995, but a civil suit against Simpson found him responsible for Brown and Goldman’s deaths two years later. Simpson is currently serving time behind bars in Nevada after being found guilty of robbery, kidnapping and assault following a raid on a Las Vegas hotel room in 2007.
