Kris Jenner claims she was there when the infamous O.J. Simpson gloves were purchased


In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Kris Jenner recalled her close friendship with O.J. Simpson's late ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and even claimed she was with her when she bought the infamous "bloody gloves."

"She was with Nicole on a trip to New York when Nicole ventured into Bloomingdale's and purchased a pair of leather gloves for O.J. that later may have been used by her murderer," the piece reads in regard to Jenner. "And Nicole confided in her that 'she feared for her life' because of O.J.'s jealous and explosive tendencies."

When asked if she was in fact present when her friend bought the gloves "that may have factored into life later on," Jenner replied, "Yes."

During his trial, O.J. Simpson was asked to try on the pair of gloves, which had been presented in court as having been worn by the murderer. They appeared to be too small for the former football player, prompting his lawyer to utter the famous words, "If the glove don't fit, you must acquit."

"After that initial shock of, 'What's going on,' I just felt like I knew, probably, what had happened," she said despite the fact that her ex-husband Robert Kardashian was part of O.J. Simpson's defense team. "On this particular subject, I felt one way and [Robert] felt another. After having so much respect for him for so many years, you just have to still have that same amount of decency and respect for another human being."

This month marks the 23rd anniversary of Nicole Brown Simpson's death. While O.J. Simpson was eventually found not guilty of murdering his ex-wife and her friend Ron Goldman, he has spent a chunk of his time since in jail for an unrelated, 2007 armed robbery and kidnapping conviction. He's up for parole this year and could be released as early as October.

Judge Lance Ito, still on the Los Angeles Superior Court bench, has presided over some 500 trials since the Simpson case made him famous. He long ago took his name plate off his courtroom door because it kept getting stolen. He is not standing for re-election this year and will retire in 2015 with few plans other than to learn to play guitar.

Gil Garcetti, Los Angeles district attorney during the Simpson trial, was re-elected to another term in spite of criticism of his handling of the case. He later changed careers, focusing on photography, and traveled the world taking pictures that were published in six books to raise awareness of social needs such as water wells in Africa. He has been consulting director of TV crime dramas, "The Closer" and "Major Crimes." His son, Eric, is mayor of Los Angeles.

Johnnie L. Cochran, Jr., Simpson's lead attorney who coined the phrase, "If it doesn't fit, you must acquit," wrote a memoir revealing his rift with Shapiro over control of the defense case. He expanded his law firm to 15 states and was the success story of the team until he was stricken with brain cancer and died in 2005 at 68.

Barry Scheck, the lawyer who introduced the science of DNA to jurors and to the public watching on TV, attacked police methods of evidence collection and demolished the prosecution's forensic evidence case. He and co-counsel on the Simpson case, Peter Neufeld, founded The Innocence Project that uses DNA evidence to exonerate wrongly convicted prisoners. They have helped overturn hundreds of cases.

Robert Kardashian, a close friend of Simpson, renewed his lapsed law license to participate in the trial. Simpson stayed at his home after the killings were discovered and Kardashian read to the public a rambling message from Simpson as he was fleeing from police in a white Ford Bronco. Kardashian died at the age of 59 in 2003 from esophageal cancer. His ex-wife, Kris, and his children, Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob, became famous after his death with their reality show, "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."

Kato Kaelin, known as America's most famous house guest, was living on Simpson's property when he claimed to hear a bump in the night that prosecutors suggested was Simpson returning from the murders. Kaelin tried to extend his moment in the spotlight to show business after the trial and is now involved in promoting a clothing line called, "Kato's Potatoes."
