Report: OJ Simpson Almost Committed Suicide in Kim Kardashian’s Bedroom
OJ Simpson almost committed suicide in Kim Kardashian‘s childhood bedroom just hours before the infamous white Bronco chase.
How? Why? Wha? Let me explain.
As you may recall, OJ had a team of superstar lawyers representing him at his murder trial back in 1995. And one of them was Robert Kardashian, ex-husband of Kris Jenner and late-father of Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, and Rob.
Back then, a journalist named Lawrence Schiller had almost unlimited access to OJ’s legal team. And now, in a new interview he gave to ABC’s 20/20 for the 20th anniversary of OJ’s not guilty verdict, Schiller recounts a disturbing story about how things almost played out very differently.
You see, at some point in time Schiller was given access to an audio cassette. And on that audio cassette was a suicide message from OJ Simpson, made just hours before the most famous slow-speed police chase in TV history.
“Oh boy, I don’t know how I ended up here,” Simpson says in the recording. “Please remember me as ‘The Juice.’ Please remember me as a good guy. Don’t remember me as one of the negatives that might end up here. Please, please, please, please leave my kids at peace. I love everybody.”
According to Schiller, Robert Kardashian then told him how he found Simpson and convinced him not to take his own life.
“Then O.J. said, ‘I’m going to kill myself in this room,’ and I said, ‘You can’t.’ I said, ‘This is my daughter’s bedroom. My little girl Kim sleeps here. I can’t have my little girl in this bedroom, and every time I come in here, I’m going to see your body lying in this. You can’t do that.'”
So that’s messed up, huh?
If you have 10 minutes, watch the entire segment. It’s pretty crazy.
