The Truth About Nicole Brown Simpson And Kris Jenner’s Friendship
A surprising connection
In the times before Kris Jenner became the famous mom of the Kardashian-Jenner family, she was a Beverly Hills housewife. She was then married to Robert Kardashian, who was not only a lawyer but also a longtime friend of OJ Simpson. Interestingly, that friendship extended to their wives as well, leading to a close relationship between Kris Jenner and Nicole Brown Simpson.
Early years: family vacations and close relationships
The families were so close that they even vacationed together, and the Kardashian children affectionately called the Simpsons “Aunt Nicole” and “Uncle OJ.” It was more than just friendship; it was a family connection. Despite appearing unapproachable at times, Jenner attributed this to the strain of her tumultuous marriage to OJ Simpson.
Dark Turn: The Tragic Night of June 12, 1994
By 1992, both the Kardashian and Simpson marriages ended in divorce. No one had any idea of the dark turn that awaited them. On the fateful night of June 12, 1994, Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman were tragically found murdered outside their home in Brentwood. The prime suspect? None other than her ex-husband, OJ Simpson.
A family divided: Kris Jenner’s struggle with guilt
This shocking revelation instantly divided the Kardashian family. While Kris Jenner firmly believed in the guilt of OJ Simpson, her ex-husband Robert Kardashian decided to join Simpson’s legal team. Even today, Jenner carries the burden of guilt, feeling that she failed Nicole Brown Simpson. Despite knowing about Simpson’s infidelity, she was unaware of the extent of the abuse Nicole had endured.
Regrets and Unspoken Signs: Kris Jenner’s Heartache
In her 2011 autobiography, “Kris Jenner … and All Things Kardashian,” Jenner admitted she didn’t recognize the signs of abuse until it was too late. She deeply regrets not having intervened in Nicole’s troubled marriage, believing that her actions could have changed the tragic outcome. At the end of her life, Nicole began to open up to Jenner about the abusive relationship, chillingly revealing that she feared OJ would kill her and escape justice.
The Trial: The Terrifying 911 Calls
It wasn’t until the OJ Simpson trial that Kris Jenner listened to Nicole Brown Simpson’s chilling 911 calls describing the extent of the abuse. The revelation left Jenner struggling with guilt for not asking more questions or paying more attention. Even after Simpson was found not guilty, both Jenner and Kardashian cut all ties with him, choosing to distance themselves completely.
Conclusion: Remembered sincere friendship
In the end, the truth about Nicole Brown Simpson and Kris Jenner’s friendship is a story of unexpected connections, tragic endings, and lingering guilt. Kris Jenner, now a powerhouse in the entertainment industry, still carries the weight of what could have been.
