In Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kris Jenner slammed newly revived rumors that she and O.J. Simpson had an affair during her marriage to Robert Kardashian.
Kris Jenner, 63, was especially hurt that the new round of tabloid reports circulated on the anniversary of her friend Nicole Brown Simpson’s death.
“They printed a story that I was sleeping with O.J.,” Kris Jenner said during the episode. “That f—ing piece of s—. It’s really kind of pathetic when rumors get started the media gives it life and breath and on the anniversary of Nicole’s death. It’s so tasteless and disgusting.”
Over the years, both the Kardashian family and Simpson have dismissed the conspiracy theory that Jenner and Simpson had an affair while she was married to Kardashian, resulting in Khloe Kardashian’s birth. While discussing the rumors with Khloé, Jenner admitted that the lies take an emotional toll on her.
“After 25 years, you’d think it just wouldn’t be a thing,” she said while tearing up. “It’s just lie after lie after lie after lie, and it’s only so much that one human being can take.”
“I’m so over stupid rumors of things that never happened,” she added. “I think it’s just really wrong.”
Later, she said she decided to sue a publication for printing the false information. “I just think it’s really unfair to Nicole’s family, my family, for these stupid rumors to be flying around out there,” she explained. “It’s always right there under the surface. My team has decided to take legal action because once and for all I have to do something about it.”
