Kris Jenner poses in the winners room at the National Television Awards on Jan. 21 in London, England.
Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner still beats herself up over her friend’s 1994 murder.
Jenner, 59, remains plagued by guilt over the red flags raised by Nicole Brown Simpson in the weeks leading up to her death, she said in an upcoming Lifetime Movie Network documentary, according to ABC News.
“I will always feel guilty that I didn’t pay more attention and didn’t speak up when I thought anything was wrong or asked her more, ‘Do you want to talk about it?'” Jenner said of Simpson, who along with waiter Ron Goldman was found stabbed to death outside her Los Angeles townhouse.
Simpson, then 35, had a turbulent relationship with her ex-husband, O.J. Simpson, who was charged with the murders and eventually acquitted in 1995 following a globally publicized trial.
She had become increasingly convinced that he was a danger to her, Jenner and others have said.
“At the end of Nicole’s life, I think she finally was at a place where she knew she had to be more vocal with what was going on and she was in trouble,” Jenner told LMN. “The one thing she would tell all of us by the time, you know, it got to that level was, ‘He’s going to kill me and he’s going to get away with it.'”
O.J. Simpson and his former wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, celebrate the opening of the Harley-Davidson Cafe on Oct. 19, 1993.
“She told me that she thought she was being stalked,” the reality-TV star also wrote in her 2012 memoir, “Kris Jenner … and All Things Kardashian.” “And she believed it was O.J.”
Jenner’s late ex-husband, Robert Kardashian, was O.J. Simpson’s defense attorney and close friend. Jenner has spoken out about the case over the years, saying she believes the retired NFL player was guilty.
The former football star and actor, 68, is currently serving a 33-year prison sentence in Nevada on 2007 felony robbery and kidnapping charges.
The LMN documentary, called “The Secret Tapes of the O.J. Case: The Untold Story,” airs Wednesday.
