O.J. Simpson Is What Made The Kardashian Famous

O.J. Simpson passed away at the age of 76 after battling cancer!

Back in the day, The Kardashian family hit the spotlight thanks to her dad’s friendship with O.J. Simpson.

When Simpson was accused of murder, Robert Kardashian jumped back into the legal game to join his defense team, putting the Kardashians right in the middle of a major scandal.

OJ Simpson was the reason the Kardashian family was split into two and the reason the family allegedly got famous in the first place, reports. 

But what is the connection between them and what have they said over the years including what really happened that destroyed the relationship between best friends?

Oj and The Kardashians connection

In the mid-1990s O.J. Simpson, a former professional football player and actor, was accused of a double murder that captivated the nation. 

As the trial gained widespread media attention, Robert Kardashian, a prominent attorney, made the decision to reenter the legal arena and join Simpson’s defense team. 

This unexpected move placed the Kardashian family at the epicenter of one of the most sensationalized and controversial trials in American history. 

O.J. and Robert Kardashian met sometime around 1967 and instantly clicked and became life besties. 

Simpson and Robert had that kind of brotherly relationship not to forget the first one was the best man at Rob and Kris’ wedding. 

After being friends for 25 years and after Simpson was accused of a double murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. 

The media frenzy surrounding the trial was unpredictable. As Robert Kardashian stood by Simpson’s side every single move of them was analyzed. 

For some time Robert had believed his best friend was innocent until piles of evidence were thrown in to prove OJ was indeed guilty.

Kardashian was the guy who was spotted holding Simpson’s bag when Simpson returned from Chicago. 

The prosecutors had a theory that the bag might have had Simpson’s bloody clothes or the murder weapon. 

On June 17, 1994, when Simpson didn’t surrender himself at 11 a.m., Kardashian read out a letter from Simpson to the media. A lot of people saw this letter as a suicide note.

The Kardashian family was thrust into the spotlight without even getting a say in whether they wanted this kind of life or not. 

The impact of O.J on The Kardashian family 

The media frenzy surrounding the O.J. Simpson trial was unprecedented, with every aspect of the case dissected and scrutinized by the public. 

As Robert Kardashian stood by Simpson’s side, his actions and involvement became the subject of intense speculation and scrutiny. 

The Kardashian family, previously leading relatively private lives, suddenly found themselves thrust into the harsh glare of the media spotlight. 

The trial itself was a spectacle, with daily televised proceedings that captivated millions of viewers.

As Robert Kardashian played a pivotal role in Simpson’s defense, the Kardashian family’s every move was documented and analyzed by the media. 

Their personal lives, previously shielded from public view, were now exposed for all to see. The intense media attention surrounding the trial had a profound impact on the Kardashian family. 

Kim Kardashian, then a teenager, experienced firsthand the invasion of privacy and the relentless scrutiny that came with being associated with such a high-profile case. 

This early exposure to the media circus would later shape her approach to fame and ultimately contribute to her own rise to stardom. 

While the trial ended with Simpson’s acquittal, the Kardashian family’s involvement in the scandal left an indelible mark on their lives. 

It served as a catalyst for their subsequent foray into reality television, as the family recognized the power of media exposure and the potential for leveraging their newfound notoriety. 

In retrospect, the O.J. Simpson trial and Robert Kardashian’s involvement can be seen as a pivotal moment in the Kardashian family’s journey to fame. 

It thrust them into the public eye, exposing them to the harsh realities of media scrutiny and ultimately setting the stage for their future success.

OJ Simpson’s involvement with Khloe and Kim Kardashian

For quite some time it was thought that Khloe Kardashian was the offspring of Simpson. 

Allegedly Kris had an affair with the former football player and actor because she had written in her memoir that she did indeed have an affair while being married to Robert and it pushed others into thinking it was OJ. 

However, these rumors were denied by the late NFL player himself. 

Also, it is known that Simpson had threatened to kill (shoot) himself in what had happened to be Khloe’s room.

These girls have been so intertwined with pop culture from such a young age.
