Kardashian’s father Robert Kardashian was part of the defence team for the former NFL player when he was charged with the murder of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman in 1994.
O J was acquitted of the murder charges in 1995, with the trial was the subject of the recent TV series “The People v O J Simpson: American Crime Story”, which starred Cuba Gooding Jr in the title role and former “Friends” star David Schwimmer as Robert.
Kardashian and her family were very close to the disgraced sportsman, and even called him Uncle O J. It was also shown in the TV series that O J tried to commit suicide in the Kardashian home after being arrested for the murder of his ex-wife and her friend.
O J was jailed in 2008 for kidnap and armed robbery, and is eligible for parole in 2017.
