A newly-paroled O.J. Simpson responded to Caitlyn Jenner’s claim that she “pretty much knew” Simpson was guilty of murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
According to Us Weekly, Jenner, 68, appeared Monday on the Kyle and Jackie O Show, where she revealed that Kris Jenner, 61, talked to Nicole weeks before her death. During the call, Nicole told Kris that O.J. was going to kill her and get away with it “because he’s O.J. Simpson,” Caitlyn said.
“We pretty much knew he was guilty right from the beginning, but the whole thing was, ‘Is he going to get away with it?’”Caitlyn added. “At the time, she brushed it off and was like, ‘Come on, please, please, please,’”
“But unfortunately, it was right.”
Caitlyn also recalled the moment she and Kris were in the prosecutor’s office and learned that O.J., now 70, was acquitted on murder charges.
“Kris turned around and looked at me and said, ‘You know, we should have listened to Nicole. She was right from the beginning,’” she alleged.
The reality star maintained that O.J. got away with the slayings “to some extent,” but noted that his reputation was irreparably damaged in turn.
Caitlyn concluded, “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.”
The Hall of Famer was recently asked about the reality star’s explosive claims during a conversation with TMZ. Out and about in Las Vegas, the 70-year-old told the tabloid that he’ll be heading to Florida eventually and offered some comments about Caitlyn, specifically about her transition.
“I don’t know Caitlyn. I’ve never met Caitlyn. Far as Bruce is concerned, I really didn’t know him that well…” he said while heading to his car.
“You want to choose to live his life as an old lady instead of an old man…women live longer, he might be onto something.”
