Kris Jenner has sworn she never knew anything about close friend Nicole Brown's abusive relationship with her ex-husband, O.J. Simpson, before she was savagely murdered in 1994. But according to pal Faye Resnick, she knew all about that— and more!
Celebrity Sightings In Los Angeles – September 14, 2015
In her 1994 bestseller, Nicole Brown Simpson: The Private Diary of a Life Interrupted, Resnick, now 58, claimed Jenner introduced her to Brown in 1990— and immediately filled her in one the NFL couple's tumultuous relationship. "She's having domestic problems," Jenner whispered, according to Resnick.

Jenner witnessed Simpson's explosive rages firsthand, Resnick claimed in the shocking read. At the celebrity wife turned 60-year-old momager's annual Christmas Eve bash— a lux tradition that continues to this day— the disgraced football legend flipped when he ran into Brown's ex, model Joseph Perrulli, during the 1993 party. "I drove up to Kris's house just as O.J. came storming out, followed by Nicole, Kris and a crowd of our friends," Resnick wrote, adding that Jenner tried to calm the enraged Simpson.

During a group vacation in April 1994, Jenner heard mother of two Brown, who was just 35 at her death, tell her girlfriends that she feared Simpson would kill her one day. "It was one of those shocking statements that are so unbelievable you wonder if you heard right," Resnick said.

21 years later, Jenner told People that she didn't know anything about Simpson's widely documented abuse of Brown. "It's wild that she kept that from us," she told the magazine. "They say it's very typical in an abusive relationship that the woman doesn't really speak out about how she's being treated."

But Resnick, who counted Jenner as one of her closest friends, alleged that Brown told her all Simpson's abusive behavior, including one time he beat her and locked her in a closet for hours.

Simpson was famously acquitted of Brown and her friend Ron Goldman's murders, though he was later found responsible for the deaths in a civil trial. He was found guilty of kidnapping and robbery relating to a 2007 incident in a Las Vegas hotel, and is serving a 33-year prison sentence.
