Forget the Kardashian storm brewing around reports that different sisters are expecting babies in various ways. Another Kardashian storm worth considering are the reasons that the reality TV family is estranged from one-time parent Caitlyn Jenner
And the reasons have nothing to do with Caitlyn coming out as a transgender woman in 2015.
Kim Kardashian, along with her sisters Kourtney and Khloe, is fed up with “shady” claims Caitlyn made in her memoir about their father Robert Kardashian and his friendship with O.J. Simpson, according to Entertainment Tonight.
As Kim explains in the upcoming premiere of Season 14 of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” she’s upset that Caitlyn wrote that their attorney father knew O.J. Simpson was guilty but defended him anyway to get back at their mother Kris Jenner.
In her memoir “Secrets of My Life,” Caitlyn said Robert was jealous that Kris had moved on so quickly after their divorce by marrying the Olympic gold medalist then known as Bruce Jenner.
According to Caitlyn’s book, Robert knew it would upset Kris for him to join the defense team for Simpson in his trial on charges of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. That’s because Kris had been close friends with Nicole and knew that O.J. had been violent towards her.
In a clip for Sunday night’s “KUWTK,” Kim reads to Kourtney and Khloe excerpts from Caitlyn’s memoir.
“It says in Caitlyn’s book, ‘Robert Kardashian knew O.J. Simpson was guilty, but joined the defense team to get back at his remarried ex,’” Kim Kardashian reads. “‘Robert told Caitlyn in secret after the O.J. murder trial that he believed his friend was guilty.’”
Khloe cuts in: “That’s not true! Like, what?”
“Like, to sell a book, you’re gonna make something up?” Kourtney says.
“Dad so believed in him,” Kim says. “It is so shady that Caitlyn came over and gave me the book, and then on the phone she said, ‘Well, the final version has a few more things in it, but don’t worry, it’s nothing about you.’ So, she lied to me, ‘cause that is about me, if it’s about our dad.”
Kardashian also admits in a confessional interview that she and the former Olympia have a “strained” relationship. As Bruce Jenner, Caitlyn was the patriarch of the Kardashian reality TV show. Her coming out as transgender was featured on the show in a way that was praised as being respectful and informative on transgender issues.
“I have always had Caitlyn’s back,” Kardashian says to her sisters in the clip. “but she is a liar. She is not a good person.”
Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman were found stabbed to death outside Nicole’s condominium in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles on June 12, 1994.
Simpson, the San Francisco-reared Heisman Trophy winner, former NFL star and celebrity pitchman, immediately became a person of their interest in their murders. On June 17, after the infamous low-speed pursuit of his white Ford Bronco SUV, he was arrested and charged with his killings. But he was acquitted in 1995.
Robert was an original member of Simpson’s “dream team” of high-priced, high-profile attorneys. Throughout Simpson’s arrest and trial, Robert remained a steady and loyal presence.
But Caitlyn believes a jealous love triangle motivated Robert’s interest in helping his friend.
Robert and Kris were married in 1978 and had four children together, future realty TV stars Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Robert Jr. They divorced in 1991 and Kris immediately turned around and married Jenner, then a handsome, successful male athlete.
In her memoir Caitlyn wrote about Robert’s sticking by Simpson: “I wonder if it was (Robert’s) way of saying to her what I think she was saying to him when she married me: a big (expletive) you.”
Caitlyn contends that Robert knew his friend was guilty, based on a conversation Caitlyn had with Robert in the 1990s. Robert, who died of cancer in 2003, confessed his knowledge of O.J.’s guilt during a car ride the two shared, Caitlyn claims. This would have been after O.J. was found liable for the deaths of Nicole and Ron Goldman in a 1998 civil trial.
“I would’ve been okay with it if they had gotten him in the first trial,” Robert said, according to Caitlyn.
“The implication was obvious that he believed O.J. was guilty,” Caitlyn wrote.
Kris and Caitlyn divorced in 2015 after Caitlyn went public with news she’s transgender.
Caitlyn has acknowledged in interviews that she has a strained relationship with her ex-wife Kris Jenner and former Kardashian stepdaughters, though she maintains a connection with Kendall and Kylie Jenner, her daughters with Kris.
“The relationship on the Kardashian side has been strained recently,” she admitted in an interview in August.
“To be honest with you, I don’t really talk to them. I haven’t talked to them in months and months and months.”
The upcoming episode of “KUWTK” won’t be the first time Kim has spoken out against Jenner in recent weeks.
Amid rumors about younger sister Kylie being pregnant with boyfriend Travis Scott’s child, Kardashian tweeted that the media has been “posting fake quotes from Caitlyn.” However, Kim didn’t deny reports that 20-year-old Kylie is pregnant.
And speaking of fake stories… The media is super shady for posting fake quotes from Caitlyn when she hasn’t spoke to anyone
