It’s a subject she doesn’t often tackle … Guest on the third season of David Letterman’s show, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, Kim Kardashian spoke about her memories of the OJ Simpson trial, and how this the latter had affected the dynamics of his family. Kanye West’s wife explained, “It was dinner time, and we were all sitting down, and I answered the phone. It was a jail call, and it was OJ, and I handed the phone to my mom because he wanted to talk to her. And I just remember them getting to the point. ” In 1994, Robert Kardashian had been one of OJ Simpson’s lawyers, when the latter was accused of murdering his former wife Nicole Brown and her friend, Ronald Goldman.
If the former American footballer was acquitted of the double murders in October 1995, Kris Jenner remains convinced that OJ Simpson did indeed kill her best friend. Kim Kardashian, who was about 14 at the time of the initial trial, explained that it had been difficult to go through this trial which was tearing her family apart: “My mother made her feelings very clear, she believed her friend had been murdered by him and that it was really traumatic for her. And then we would go to my dad and it was a whole different situation there. We didn’t really know what to believe or which side to stand on as kids, because we didn’t want to hurt one of our parents. ”
A difficult position for the star
Facing the host, the social media star recalled a day when her father took them and her older sister Kourtney Kardashian out of school to go to court … without telling it to his ex-wife! “I remember my mom was sitting with Nicole’s parents, and Kourtney and I were sitting behind OJ, and we were looking at my mom and she was giving us a terrible look, like, ‘What are you doing outside? What are you doing here ?! Kourtney and I were like, ‘Just look straight ahead, don’t look at mom,’ “Kim Kardashian said. If the pretty brunette never wanted to talk about the case out of respect for Nicole Brown’s children, she concluded the streak by adding: “It tore my family apart, I would say, for the duration of the trial.”
