Kim Kardashian Says She ‘Started Crying’ the Last Time She Saw O.J. Simpson: ‘It Was Emotional’
We all know that the Kardashians are an open book, but one thing they remain pretty tight-lipped on is their connection to the O.J. Simpson trial. Kim Kardashian finally disclosed her last interaction with “The Juice” on Jonathan Cheban’s podcast “FoodGod: OMFG” on Thursday, September 19.
The 45-year-old shared with Kim, 38, that he had recently run-in to the former jailbird who asked about his old friends. “The first thing he asks is about you guys, like, ‘How are the girls? How’s everybody?’” Jonathan recalled. He added, “Like, have you seen him ever?”
“I think the last time I saw him was in Miami. It was before he had gone to jail this, you know, last situation,” Kim replied. O.J. was incarcerated between the years 2008 and 2017 for armed robbery and kidnapping. His second interaction with the law came 13 years after his 1995 murder trial for the murders of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Ron Goldman.
“I think me, Kourtney [Kardashian] and Khloé [Kardashian] were in Miami in a club and we ran into him in the VIP section. It was behind a stage or something, I don’t even know what club it was at.” Kim continued to recall, “I started crying. It was emotional, I think.”
Kim’s father, Robert Kardashian, represented O.J. during the trial. The Kardashians and the Simpsons were extremely close friends prior to the allegations. The situation left the famous family divided as Bobby, who died in 2003, was team O.J. while Kris Jenner and then-husband, Bruce (now Caitlyn) Jenner sat on the opposition to pay respect for her close friend Nicole.
Kim acknowledged that the trial is something she doesn’t “really talk” about, but she did mention that her childhood friends Sydney and Justin Brown Simpson “are all so amazing.”
“I’m still somewhat friendly with his children. I don’t really talk to them, but I did connect with his son a few years back and I just have respect for them,” she continued. “Their lives must be extremely hard to really go through that. So I always just try to keep to myself on that issue and not bring anything up for them because, you know, every time someone does it’s super traumatic.”
Now that O.J. is a free man, he took to Twitter in June to share a sentiment to the famous family. “All the girls, I’m very proud of, just like I know Bob would be if he was here.”
As Kim is studying to be a lawyer, like her father, we would love her take on what happened on the awful night in 1995.
