Sources revealed that O.J. Simpson might have his sights set on Kris Jenner once he gets out of prison.
Simpson’s relationship with Jenner dates back to when her late ex-husband, Robert Kardashian, was one of his defense attorneys during his murder trial in the 1990s. Now, sources tell the New York Daily News that Simpson wants to be with Jenner romantically.
“He’s completely obsessed with [Kris Jenner] and apparently still has feelings for her,” Ian Halperin, author of Kardashian Dynasty, told the News. Simpson also allegedly expressed interest in dating Jenner’s ex, transgender icon Caitlyn Jenner.
“He said something to the effect of he’d even be interested in her,” Halperin said, citing a source close to Simpson. “He might have said it jokingly … O.J. says a lot of things straight-faced, and he’s a compulsive liar.”
Simpson, a former NFL star who was acquitted of charges for the murder of ex-wife Nicole Brown-Simpson, is currently serving time for a 2008 armed robbery conviction.
“O.J.’s going to try to reinvent himself, and his best gateway to doing that is through the Kardashians and Kris Jenner,” Halperin said. “My sources think he is going to make a move, and a move to get on the show, or some type of spinoff. I highly doubt and I sincerely hope that the Kardashians don’t give him the time of day.”
Jenner has recently been outspoken about the last days of Brown-Simpson, whom she was close friends with. The murder and subsequent trial was the subject of a recent TV series called "American Crime Story," and Jenner spoke of the Simpsons’ relationship for a documentary called "The Secret Tapes of the O.J. Case: The Untold Story."
“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,” Jenner said in the documentary, the Daily Mail reported.
“The one thing she would tell all of us by the time [...] it got to that level was, 'He's going to kill me and he's going to get away with it.'”
