As the matriarch of the Kardashian-Jenner empire, Kris Jenner has had to endure many rumors, but none have proved more painful than the ongoing gossip that she and O.J. Simpson had an affair when she was married to Robert Kardashian Sr., resulting in Khloé Kardashian’s birth.

People reports that, on the most recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, tabloids were back on the tired story about Jenner and Simpson. But though the tough momager had heard the gossip before, the fact that they brought the 25-year-old allegation up on the death anniversary of Nicole Brown Simpson really hit Jenner hard.

She states in the episode:

“They printed a story that I was sleeping with O.J. That f**king piece of s**t. It’s really kind of pathetic that 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.”

Kris tears up as she continues, “After 25 years, you’d think it just wouldn’t be a thing. It’s just lie after lie after lie after lie, and it’s only so much that one human being can take.”

Jenner was very close with Simpson, his ex-wife Nicole, and Nicole’s friend Ron Goldman. When Brown and Goldman were violently murdered in 1994, Simpson became the lead suspect. Kardashian Sr. was also a friend of Simpson and served as one of his defense attorneys in the famous trial that had him acquitted, despite the pile of evidence against him.

The momager states in the episode that she had been angry for many years about losing her friend, but after deciding to sue the publication that printed the story, she realizes that she needed to release some of the bitterness.

We hope Jenner finds the peace she has been looking for.
