Shocking new details about the 1995 murder trial involving O.J. Simpson have been revealed. Lawrence Schiller, who recently penned the book "American Tragedy: The Uncensored Story of the O.J. Simpson Defense," sat down with ABC News' "20/20" Sept. 24 to discuss the now-famous case. During his interview, Schiller, 78, shared some never before heard information regarding the Kardashian family.
According to People magazine, Schiller claimed that before leading police on a high-speed chase in his Ford Bronco, Simpson sought refuge at the home of Robert Kardashian Sr. The former NFL superstar was reportedly found by the esteemed attorney sitting in his daughter Kim Kardashian's childhood bedroom. Schiller told "20/20" he was holding photos of his wife, Nicole Brown, whom he had been accused of murdering, and their children while recording "a suicide tape." When found, Schiller said Simpson told the Kardashian patriarch he was planning to commit suicide right then and there. Kardashian Sr. reportedly plead with him not to do it in his young daughter's room.
"'My little girl Kim sleeps here. I can't have my little girl in this bedroom, and every time I come in here, I'm going to see your body lying in this. You can't do that,'" he begged.
As we previously reported, FX's "American Crime Story" will be tackling Simpson's case in it's pilot season, as well as the Kardashian family's involvement in it. Selma Blair has been cast as Kris Jenner, who was a close friend of Brown. Kris Jenner and her then-husband Robert Kardashian Sr. had divorced at the time of the trial. Still, she showed up to the hearing in support of her deceased friend, which the Kardashian children previously claimed caused tension among the family. David Schwimmer has been cast as Kardashian Sr. John Travolta, Cuba Gooding Jr., Sarah Paulson, Courtney B. Vance, Connie Britton and Jordana Brewster will also star. "American Crime Story" premieres in 2016.
Kim Kardashian, 34, nor any members of her famous family appear in the special episode of "20/20." Jenner did, however, discuss Brown's death in the Lifetime Movie Network documentary "The Secret Tapes of the O.J. Case: The Untold Story." The documentary will air on Lifetime Oct. 5 at 8 p.m. and Oct. 6 at 12 a.m. EDT.
