Robert Kardashian KNEW OJ Simpson was guilty (2023)

Caitlyn Jenner's gender reassignment surgery is not the only bombshell to come out of her upcoming memoir, with Radar Online revealing that the former Olympian also makes some shocking claims about her ex Kris Jenner's first husband.

One year after the massive success of the Emmy-winning series 'American Crime Story: The People V. OJ' and the Oscar-winning documentary 'OJ: Made In America,' it seems that Caitlyn is also looking to share a story about the disgraced football star, writing that OJ's lawyer Robert Kardashian knew that his client was guilty or murder.

Caitlyn claims that a few years after the trial, she and Robert were in a car together and he said: 'I would’ve been okay with it if they had gotten him in the first trial.'

OJ was found not guilty of all criminal charges in his first trial back in 1995, but 'responsible' for the deaths of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and waiter Ron Goldman in 1998 during his subsequent civil trial.

'The implication was obvious that he believed O.J. was guilty,' writes Caitlyn of her takeaway from that exchange in her new book.

Caitlyn, 67, was seen out and about in Los Angeles on Tuesday, grabbing her morning coffee in a pair of form-fitting and body-hugging skinny jeans.

Tough times: Caitlyn (above on Tuesday in LA) also reveals in her memoir that the case divided the house, with Kourtney and Kim believing OJ was innocent of murdering their mother's best friend

Caitlyn is also no fan of OJ, and writes in the book: 'I believe he got away with two savage murders.'

She then recounts picking up Kourtney from school on the day of the verdict, with the youngster saying as she got into the car: 'See, I told you he didn’t do it!'

Caitlyn claims in the book that the trial had managed to split the family after both Kim and Kourtney sided with their father in claiming OJ was innocent, despite Robert's belief otherwise.

When Kourtney stared speaking about the trial after the verdict, Caitlyn informed her that talk about OJ and even the mention of his name was now banned from the family's home.

'He was the most narcissistic, egocentric, neediest a**hole in the world of sports I had ever seen, and I had seen a lot of them,' writes Caitlyn of the Heisman Trophy winner.

As for Robert, he was motivated by jealousy, according to Caitlyn, having become upset that his ex Kris had married a powerful and successful athlete.

'I wonder if it was his way of saying to her what I think she was saying to him when she married me: a big f*** you,' writes Caitlyn.

She also reveals in the memoir that she underwent gender reassignment surgery in January of this year, almost two years after she revealed her decision to transition.

Kris and Nicole were best friends and had talked just hours before her murder

That reveal was the result of Caitlyn being annoyed by fans who were constantly asking about her genitals and whether or not she had kept the parts she was biologically born with or had surgery, she writes in 'The Secrets of My Life'.

'The surgery was a success, and I feel not only wonderful but liberated,' writes Caitlyn.

'So why even consider it? Because it’s just a penis. It has no special gifts or use for me other than what I have said before, the ability to take a whiz in the woods,' writes Jenner.

'I just want to have all the right parts. I am also tired of tucking the damn thing in all the time.'

Jenner also writes about how good she felt after the surgery.

'I am going to live authentically for the first time in my life,' she writes of her thoughts after undergoing the procedure.

'I am going to have an enthusiasm for life that I have not had in 39 years since the Olympics, almost two thirds of my life.'

Jenner writes to those curious minds who stop to ask her about her genital situation: 'You want to know, so now you know. Which is why this is the first time, and the last time, I will ever speak of it.'

The way they were: Caitlynn also claims Robert defended OJ to get back at Kris for marrying her so quickly after their divorce (Robert and Kris above in the late 1980s)

News of Jenner's surgery will be perhaps the biggest surprise in her new memoir, which netted her a $4million advance and was written with the help of 'Friday Night Lights' author Buzz Bissinger.

It is due to hit bookshelves on April 25.

The Kardashian reveal about OJ certainly adds more allure to a now classic Hollywood tale, but it is well known that Robert questioned his client's innocence.

He first revealed the lingering questions he has in October 1996 with Barbara Walters on 20/20 where he said: 'I have doubts. The blood evidence is the biggest thorn in my side; that causes me the greatest problems. So I — I struggle with the blood evidence.'

He also wrote a lengthy letter to his ex-wife Kris Jenner before the trial apologizing for his role on the defense team as she was one of Nicole's best friends at the time of her death.

And the trial was indeed difficult on the entire family, especially Robert's ex-wife and children.

In her 2011 memoir, 'Kris Jenner . . . And All Things Kardashian,' Kris said that Nicole called her just hours before she was murdered asking if she would like to come over and meet because she had something to talk about.

Kris declined but said they would meet the next day, only to wake up and learn her friend had been killed.

'I instinctively knew that in some way O.J. had something to do with her death,' wrote Kris in her book.

Those strong feelings are why she and her husband were so at odds during the trial, even though he wrote her a letter before the case began, which she reprinted in her book.

'I think that the division in our family between guilty and innocence is very sad. I do not want our family torn apart by this case,' Robert wrote to his former wife.

'Please understand that I am trapped in the position I am in and can't get out. I must see this case through. I truly believe in O.J.'s innocence and unless they find him guilty, I will continue to support him.

Ron Goldman (above) was the second murder victim found at the scene that night

'I realize, Kris, that you also strongly believe in his guilt. You are entitled to your beliefs — just as I am.'

He went on to say: 'The past 7 months have taken such an emotional toll on my life - you have no idea.

'The other day, someone asked me a simple question about something that happened during the week of June 12 and for no reason, I started to cry.

'My life will never be the same. I'm sorry for what has happened but I was only helping my friend - just as any of you would do. Please don't let whatever is going to happen in this case affect our family.'

In a 2009 interview on The Dr. Phil Show, Kim Kardashian recalled that one day she and her sister went to court to watch their father and sat down behind him before looking over and seeing that their mother was sitting with Nicole's family.

'We thought our mom was mad at us for sitting with our dad,' said Kim.

In that same interview Caitlyn Jenner said she told the children; 'It was something that really did tear us apart.

'Just because he got a not guilty verdict doesn’t mean he didn’t do it. And I just don’t want to hear his name anymore.'

And that is just how she tells it in the memoir as well.
