It’s been 20 years since OJ Simpson infamously led the police on a chase through LA while behind the wheel of a White Bronco — and a new report has shocking claims about what he did before the chase.
According to Lawrence Schiller — who wrote American Tragedy: The Uncensored Story of the OJ Simpson Defense — the football star, 68, threatened to kill himself in the childhood bedroom of Kim Kardashian!

Schiller tells ABC News, OJ recorded a “suicide tape” of sorts before leading the cops through the streets of LA.
“Oh boy, I don’t know how I ended up here,” Simpson is allegedly heard saying on the tape, per Schilling. “Please remember me as ‘The Juice.’ Please remember me as a good guy. Don’t remember me as one of the negatives that might end up here. Please, please, please, please leave my kids at peace. I love everybody.”

In an interview before his death, OJ’s lawyer and confidante Robert Kardashian Sr. allegedly told Schiller about finding the disgraced athlete in his daughter’s room — moments from taking his own life.
“Then OJ said, ‘I’m going to kill myself in this room,’ and I said, ‘You can’t.’ I said, ‘This is my daughter’s bedroom,’” the late Rob Sr. reportedly told Schiller.
“’My little girl Kim sleeps here. I can't have my little girl in this bedroom, and every time I come in here, I'm going to see your body lying in this [room]. You can't do that.’”

Kim, 34, has previously spoken about how her close connection to the infamous athlete and his late wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, who was “best friends” with Kim’s mom, Kris Jenner, made for an unusual childhood.
“It was surreal, with Johnnie Cochran and Robert Shapiro and all these guys having meetings at my dad’s house,” she once told Rolling Stone — adding that OJ used to crash in Khloé’s room at their dad’s house.
