Kris Jenner is famous for doing what needs to be done to benefit and protect the Kardashian brand. Now, an insider claims she’s doing more undercover work to protect the brand she’s worked so hard to build over the past 10 years.
According to Radar Online, the famous momager reportedly begged the producers of The People v. O.J. Simpson miniseries to exclude certain details about the case in order to paint a positive image of her ex-husband, the late Robert Kardashian Sr. For those who don’t know, Robert Kardashian was a high-powered attorney and long-time friend of O.J. Simpson.
Following the grisly stabbing deaths of O.J.’s wife, Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, Robert Kardashian worked alongside Johnny Cochran on O.J.’s defense team. So, of course, the now-deceased attorneys were an intricate part of the miniseries. But just to make sure the Kardashian brand isn’t harmed as a result of details highlighted in the miniseries, Kris Jenner reportedly had a chat with the executive producers to ensure their names weren’t dragged through the mud.
An insider recently shared details about Kris Jenner’s request of the miniseries’ producers. “Kris asked that anything that would harm the memory of Robert not be included, as it would tarnish his legacy. It was a ballsy thing for Kris to ask for, and she got it. It was left out and not included.”
Although there was much speculation about the items inside O.J.’s Louis Vuitton luggage that was taken from the house amid the media firestorm outside his Rockingham home, the miniseries made no mention of it. In fact, Robert Kardashian is portrayed as a sympathetic, frantic friend who only works to aid O.J. during the critical time of unrest. However, that’s not all.
There were many scenes outside of the case where Robert Kardashian was seen spending time with his four children and one scene in particular that centered around the Kardashian clan. The insider questioned the relevance of those scenes as if they were purposely included for an underlying reason. Could the scenes have been a result of Kris Jenner’s discussion with the miniseries’ producers?
“It was absolutely stunning, this huge early development of the murder and the cover-up was just dropped. Instead, there are scenes of Robert taking the four kids to dinner at a local Chinese restaurant and not waiting for a table because he was recognized as being a pal of O.J.’s. What relevance does that have to the murders?” the insider added.
The rumors about Kris Jenner’s secret meeting with the miniseries’ producers have yet to be confirmed or denied, but there is a possibility that the rumor may be true. The miniseries also failed to highlight the fact that Robert Kardashian’s law license was inactive at the time the murder to place, but he worked expeditiously to have it reactivated in the wake of the O.J. Simpson trial.
Since many of the details in the miniseries still raise questions, there is speculation that Robert Kardashian may have hid incriminating evidence that could have led to a serious break in the case in order to protect his friend. Could Kris Jenner have intervened to make sure these details weren’t highlighted in the miniseries?
In a previous interview with Radar Online, Ron Goldman’s sister, Kim Goldman, shared her opinion of Robert Kardashian and the O.J. Simpson case, collectively. Although she admitted Robert Kardashian was a highly intelligent man, she believes evidence was withheld.
“I have always wondered what was in his [O.J. Simpson’s] luggage bag, and if it did indeed hold the murder weapon that was used to kill my brother and Nicole. Robert Kardashian certainly had motive to help him get rid of the evidence,” Kim Goldman said. “Robert Kardashian was a very smart man and I absolutely think it’s possible that he hid or destroyed key evidence including the murder weapon.”
At this point, all of the speculation about Robert Kardashian’s role in the case remains unconfirmed. Kris Jenner has yet to respond to the allegations.
