Now that the new OJ Simpson show American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson is airing, people are obsessing over OJ Simpson once again. Now, Radar Online is sharing the news that OJ Simpson actually knew the truth about Caitlyn Jenner years ago and didn’t like her at all. At the time, Caitlyn was Bruce Jenner and Kris’ husband, who happened to be really good friends with Nicole Brown Simpson.
Somehow, Bruce Jenner was able to keep that he wanted to become a woman a secret for years, but OJ Simpson knew the truth many years ago. Bruce and OJ were both athletes at the same time and ran in a lot of the same circles. This means they were around each other a lot if they liked each other or not. Mike Gilbert, Simpson’s former agent, is speaking out and sharing that OJ never liked Bruce and thought he was weird.
Gilbert actually went on to share that “O.J. hated Bruce. He thought he was really awkward.” If you don’t know it, OJ Simpson’s father, Jimmie Simpson, was a well-known drag queen. Gilbert remembers once being with OJ Simpson, and they saw Bruce Jenner driving down the road and he shared his thoughts.
“This mother****er wants to be a woman. I swear to God now look at him. You heed my words. That mother****r wants to be a woman.”
Back in the early 90s, Bruce Jenner and OJ Simpson actually were spotted at a park together. OJ Simpson wasn’t acting like someone who hated Jenner, though. The two were huge athletes at the time, and OJ and Bruce seemed to be getting along. A source who saw them revealed it.
“They were hanging around this park together and seemed very happy to be in each other’s company! I saw them disappear together behind a bush for a while. I couldn’t believe it. “Bruce didn’t have any friends, so Kris would ask Nicole if O.J. could take him out and about.”
During Caitlyn Jenner’s transition, Kris Jenner didn’t have her good friend Nicole Brown Simpson to lean on. Of course, she isn’t close with OJ anymore, and he is in prison. Us Magazine actually shared that Kris Jenner has revealed that she wished Robert Kardashian had been around for her to lean on during this hard time. They were very close to each other. Kris shared that these two did have a beautiful life together, even though their marriage didn’t last.

Kris Jenner says that Robert would have been a shoulder to cry on for her during this time. Kris says that divorcing Robert is her one regret in life, and every single day, she wishes she could call him. They made four beautiful children together during their marriage. After Kris and Robert divorced, she moved on to get married to Bruce Jenner. Right now, Robert Kardashian is being portrayed by David Schwimmer in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, while Kris is being played by Selma Blair. The ratings are going great so far on this new series.
