Kim Kardashian V. OJ Simpson: The Suicide Attempt in Her Bedroom & ‘Suicide Letter’

Did OJ Simpson try to kill himself in Kim Kardashian’s bedroom when she was a child? Apparently, this was the case and viewers can watch the scene play out on new show American Crime Story: The People V. OJ Simpson on FX. And, the scene was actually shot in the real home that the Kardashians owned in Encino, California at the time. The show even looked at photos of Kim Kardashian’s old bedroom to match the set. However, TMZ reports that the suicide attempt was actually in sister Khloe’s room and that there were no posters on her wall. So what’s the real deal?

What is known is Simpson’s “suicide letter” was discovered on June 17, 1994, just before Simpson’s televised police car chase and arrest. The note reads:

To whom it may concern: First, everyone understand I have nothing to do with Nicole’s murder. I loved her, always have and always will. If we had a problem, it’s because I loved her so much.

Recently, we came to the understanding that for now we were not right for each other, at least for now. Despite our love we were different, and that’s why we mutually agreed to go our separate ways. It was tough splitting for a second time, but we both knew it was for the best.

Inside I had no doubt that in the future, we would be close as friends or more. Unlike what has been written in the press, Nicole and I had a great relationship for most of our lives together, Like all long-term relationships, we had a few downs and ups. I took the heat New Year’s 1989 because that’s what I was supposed to do. I did not plead no contest for any other reason but to protect our privacy and was advised it would end the press hype.

I don’t want to belabor knocking the press, but I can’t believe what is being said. Most of it is totally made up. I know you have a job to do, but as a last wish, please, please, please, leave my children in peace. Their lives will be tough enough.

I want to send my love and thanks to all my friends. I’m sorry I can’t name every one of you, especially A.C. man, thanks for being in my life. The support and friendship I received from so many: Wayne Hughes, Lewis Markes, Frank Olson, Mark Packer, Bender, Bobby Kardashian.

I wish we had spent more time together in recent years. My golfing buddies, Hoss, Alan Austin, Mike, Craig, Bender, Wyler, Sandy, Jay, Donnie, thanks for the fun. All my teammates over the years, Reggie, you were the soul of my pro career. Ahmad, I never stopped being proud of you. Marcus, You’ve got a great lady in Catherine, don’t mess it up. Bobby Chandler, thanks for always being there. Skip and Kathy, I love you guys, without you I never would have made it through this far. Marguerite, thanks for the early years. We had some fun. Paula, what can I say? You are special. I’m sorry we’re not going to have our chance. God brought you to me I now see. As I leave, you’ll be in my thoughts.

I think of my life and feel I’ve done most of the right things. What the outcome, people will look and point. I can’t take that. I can’t subject my children to that. This way they can move on and go on with their lives. Please, if I’ve done anything worthwhile in my life. Let my kids live in peace from you (press).

I’ve had a good life. I’m proud of how I lived. My mama taught me to do unto other. I treated people the way I wanted to be treated. I’ve always tried to be up and helpful so why is this happening? I’m sorry for the Goldman family. I know how much it hurts.

Nicole and I had a good life together. All this press talk about a rocky relationship was no more than what every long-term relationship experiences. All her friends will confirm that I have been totally loving and understanding of what she’s been going through. At times I have felt like a battered husband or boyfriend but I loved her, make that clear to everyone. And I would take whatever it took to make it work.

Don’t feel sorry for me. I’ve had a great life, great friends. Please think of the real O.J. and not this lost person.

Thanks for making my life special. I hope I helped yours.
Peace and love, O.J.

What was most strange about the note was that there was a smiley face drawn inside the “O” of O.J. Author Jeffery Toobin claims that Simpson was “barely literate” and that he believes Robert Kardashian edited the letter.

Simpson and late ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson were very good friends of the Kardashian family. Dad Robert Kardashian was his confidante while Nicole was one of mom Kris Jenner’s good friends.

In 2009, the Kardashian family appeared on Dr. Phil and talked about their connection to OJ Simpson. Kim revealed that she and the family referred to the Simpsons as Uncle OJ and Aunt Nicole. The case almost split up the family because Kris was on Nicole’s side, while her ex-husband Robert Kardashian was defending OJ Simpson in her murder. Kris Jenner explained that Robert wanted to stick up for his friend, while Bruce Jenner said OJ had a dark side and he thought OJ did it from the beginning.

Have a look at the Dr. Phil clip below.

The Kardashian kids play a very small role in the show American Crime Story: The People V. OJ Simpson as showrunner Ryan Murphy estimates them to be in about four scenes.

Kim Kardashian has said that she tries to just block the entire situation from her mind because it caused such a major separation within her family.
