Kim Kardashian West says her father, Robert Kardashian, is innocent of smuggling a murder weapon out of O.J. Simpson's home in an infamous Louis Vuitton bag.
She knows this because she said she actually peeked into the bag herself to see what was in there after seeing a story about it on television in 1994.
"I know people said at the time that he [joined Simpson's defense team] so he couldn't be called as a witness, because he had that Louis Vuitton bag that supposedly had the weapon and stuff like that ... But that bag was sitting at my dad's house," she told GQ magazine. "I remember I went through it. The news was like, 'Where is this Louis Vuitton bag?' And I'm like, 'Oh, it's upstairs.'"
O.J. was found not guilty of murdering his wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.
Robert, of course, was one of O.J.'s best friends and a part of his legal dream team. There has been a conspiracy for years that the late father of the famous reality TV children took a weapon out of the home in that bag.
Kim told the magazine that nothing nefarious was in the bag.
"Just toiletries and clothes and golf clothes, just random stuff," she said of the contents. "I'm pretty sure it's, like, still in -- probably in my dad's storage."
The world was enthralled by the trial in the mid 90s and people are still tremendously interested in the case, as evidenced by a five-part ESPN documentary as well as the successful FX's series "The People vs. O.J. Simpson," in which Kim's dad was played by David Schwimmer.
"There were times I was watching and I was like, 'Oh s—-, this is dead-on ... 'That looks like my dad, it feels like my dad,'" Kim said. "It was eerie to watch sometimes."
In the same interview, Kim also took a shot at her husband's longtime nemesis Taylor Swift. Kanye West and Taylor have been at odds over the years, but they became bitter enemies after he released the song "Famous" in which he claimed that he made her famous.
"[Taylor] totally knew that that was coming out. She wanted to all of a sudden act like she didn't," Kim said, adding that the "Shake It Off" singer approved the line in the song after Kanye called her to ask if it was ok. "I don't know why she just, you know, flipped all of a sudden …
"It was funny because [on the call with Kanye, Taylor] said, 'When I get on the Grammy red carpet, all the media is going to think that I'm so against this, and I'll just laugh and say, 'The joke's on you, guys. I was in on it the whole time,'" Kim said. "And I'm like, wait, but [in] your Grammy speech, you completely dissed my husband just to play the victim again."
