Exactly a month after O.J. Simpson was granted parole, Caitlyn Jenner said she never believed he was innocent of murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.
Jenner’s ex-wife, Kris, Nicole’s best friend, has previously spoken out about her guilt over the 1994 murders, but this time, Jenner said they were warned ahead of time.
“We pretty much knew he was guilty right from the beginning, but the whole thing was, ‘Is he going to get away with it?’” the reality star said on the “Kyle and Jackie O Show” Monday.
Weeks before her death, Nicole called Kris with her concerns, Jenner said on the Australian radio show.
“He says he’s going to kill me and get away with it because he’s OJ Simpson,” Nicole allegedly told Kris.
The rise and fall of O.J. Simpson
Simpson was charged with the stabbing deaths of Nicole and Goldman, but was found not guilty in October 1995. Kris’ ex-husband, Robert Kardashian, served as Simpson’s defense lawyer.
Jenner said she was in Marcia Clarke’s office when the jury handed down the verdict.
“You know, we should have listened to Nicole, she was right from the beginning,” Jenner said Kris told her at the time.
O.J. Simpson set free from prison after nine years for robbery
Simpson was found guilty in a September 2007 robbery and sentenced to 33 years in prison, but was released on parole on Oct. 1.
Those nine years weren’t enough though, Jenner said on the radio show.
“He got away with it to some extent,” she said. “You know, his life has been ruined — which is good. I don’t think he is a threat to society (anymore). I don’t know. Who knows? I’ve never, ever talked to him, nor do I want to.”
