O.J. Simpson News Archive
Nicole Brown Simpson was tragically killed decades ago, but Kris Jenner still feels somewhat responsible for her friend's untimely death.
The momager opened up about the blonde beauty's rough relationship with former football player O.J. Simpson in the LMN documentary The Secret Tapes of the O.J. Case: The Untold Story.
The 59-year-old says Nicole was afraid of her ex-husband, and Kris said she saw signs of abuse, explaining:
"At the end of Nicole's life, I think she finally was at a place where she knew she had to be more vocal with what was going on and she was in trouble. The one thing she would tell all of us by the time, you know, it got to that level was, 'He's going to kill me and he's going to get away with it.' "
In 1994, Nicole — who had filed for divorce from the athlete two years earlier – was found stabbed to death in her LA home, along with waiter Ronald Goldman.
Although her former flame was arrested, and all the evidence seemed to indicate he was the murderer, he ended up being acquitted in 1995.
Now, Kris says she feels partially responsible for what happened to Nicole.
But it's not because her ex, the late Robert Kardashian, was one of the lawyers representing O.J. — they were divorced long before the terrible tragedy.
Instead, she regrets not being more vocal about what she saw in Nicole's relationship, saying:
"I will always feel guilty that I didn't pay more attention and didn't speak up when I thought anything was wrong or asked her more, 'Do you want to talk about it?' "

"It was surreal, with Johnnie Cochran and Robert Shapiro and all these guys having meetings at my dad's house."

"I definitely took my dad's side… We just always thought my dad was the smartest person in the world, and he really believed in his friend."

Cuba Gooding Jr. Reenacts The Historic O.J. Simpson White Bronco Car Chase For American Crime Story!
21 years ago, O.J. Simpson famously led Los Angeles police officers on a highly-televised, low-speed chase up the 405 freeway in a white Ford Bronco.
The 46-year-old actor was spotting filming in a white Bronco, pretty much identical to the vehicle that Simpson rode in on June 17, 1994.
On that day, the former athlete was expected to turn himself in to authorities on charges of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.
But Simpson didn't turn himself in and was spotted by police later that evening heading north on the Los Angeles interstate — driven by his friend Al Cowlings, played in the series by Malcolm-Jamal Warner.
This is one scene we definitely CANNOT wait to see when American Crime Story: The People vs. OJ Simpson airs next year!
