A new interview claims that young Kim Kardashian was able to witness OJ Simpson try to commit suicide.
Lawrence Schiller, the author of “American Tragedy: The Uncensored Story of the O.J. Simpson Defense,” revealed that the former NFL Player was found in young Kim’s room “with a gun in his hand,” US Weekly reported.
This was attested by the late Robert Kardashian, the father of Kim, who happens to be Simpsons’ lawyer and friend.
From the tape obtained by Schiller, the tape sounded “almost like a suicide tape” which “was intended to be his final words”, the site mentioned.
Simpson, who was holding a photo of his family, allegedly said these words before the Broncho case:
“Oh boy, I don’t know how I ended up here. Please remember me as ‘The Juice.’ Please remember me as a good guy. Don’t remember me as one of the negatives that might end up here. Please, please, please, please leave my kids at peace. I love everybody.”
Robert Kardashian found Simpson saying to himself, “‘I’m going to kill myself in this room.”
However, Robert prevented Simpson from committing suicide by saying that his “little girl Kim sleeps [t]here.”
According to People.com, Kim was only 14 years old at the time the incident happened.
Kim “was reportedly staying with her father when Simpson was accused of the murders of ex-wife Nicole Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman,” as mentioned on the site.
Meanwhile, Simpson’s ex-wife Nicole and Kris Jenner were best friends. Jenner even admitted in a documentary that she was guilty of not paying enough attention to Nicole, as mentioned on People.com.
Twenty years have passed since Simpson was acquitted of murder and yet, the new information involving Kim Kardashian has only now surfaced.
The popular reality TV star has not made any comments regarding the matter.
