"If the glove don't fit, you must acquit." Johnnie Cochran's famous line about the gloves in the O.J. Simpson murder trial live in infamy. Reality star Kris Jenner was close to both O.J. and his murdered ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson. Jenner now says that she was with Nicole when she purchased the bloody gloves that were allegedly involved in the killing.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter‘s Awards Chatter podcast, per People, the reality star says she was with Nicole in New York City when she purchased a pair of leather gloves for O.J. The Kardashian matriach believes these gloves are the infamous “bloody gloves” that prosecutors claim were used the in killing of Nicole and Ronald Goldman.
Jenner says that her best friend “feared for her life” due to her ex's temper and jealousy. When she heard of the murder, Jenner says that she didn't think O.J. was innocent. “After that initial shock of, ‘What’s going on,’ I just felt like I knew, probably, what had happened,” she says.
In October 1995, O.J. Simpson was acquitted of murder charges. Members of the O.J. jury will be featured on Oxygen's The Jury Speaks Saturday, July 22 at 9/8c.
