Ex-Olympian Caitlyn Jenner says she and Kris Jenner never believed O.J. Simpson was innocent in the murder case of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
Caitlyn recently spoke about O.J.'s 1995 murder trial on the "Kyle and Jackie O Show," the New York Daily News reported. She said she and Caitlyn always felt the former NFL superstar was guilty.
"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 said on the Australian radio show.
Caitlyn said Nicole had called Kris just weeks before her death.
"He says he’s going to kill me and get away with it because he’s OJ Simpson," Nicole allegedly said to Kris at the time.
O.J. was found not guilty in the stabbing deaths of Nicole and Goldman. Robert Kardashian, Kris' ex-husband, was O.J.'s defense attorney during the trial. Caitlyn said she was in Marcia Clarke's office when the jury handed in the "not guilty" verdict.
"You know, we should have listened to Nicole, she was right from the beginning," Caitlyn said Kris told her at the time.
O.J. ran into more legal trouble in 2007. He was sentenced to 33 years in prison on robbery charges, but was released on parole in October 2017. Caitlyn said O.J. didn't serve enough time.
"He got away with it to some extent," Caitlyn 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."
Following his release, O.J. made headlines after TMZ reported that he was banned from the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas for being drunk and unruly.
Hotel staff told the media outlet that O.J. was breaking glasses in the luxury hotel's bar. They said the former football star became angry with employees, which prompted them to call security. Staff said O.J. was cordial with the security guards, but was ultimately banned from the hotel.
In an audio recording obtained by TMZ, a police dispatcher is heard referring to O.J., saying, "Orenthal is here." The dispatcher initially thought the 70-year-old was inside a pizza shop, according to the recording.
"He’s actually sitting inside the bar, he was asking about the pizza shop," the dispatcher is heard saying.
