Kris Jenner has said that Nicole Brown Simpson was her best friend, but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that O.J. Simpson hated Caitlyn Jenner and even knew that she wanted to become a woman.
Their athletic careers and celebrity status put them in the same social circles, but Kris Jenner's then-husband Bruce Jenner was no friend of O.J. Simpson, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned. "O.J. always thought Bruce was weird and he never fit in," Mike Gilbert, Simpson's former agent, told Radar about Caitlyn Jenner, who announced she was transitioning from male to female in 2015.

"O.J. hated Bruce," Gilbert exclusively told Radar. "He thought he was really awkward." Jenner's then-wife, Kris, had been married to Robert Kardashian, one of Simpson's "Dream Team" lawyers who was a personal friend of the NFL star.
Gilbert recalled a time that he and Simpson saw Jenner in the 1980s on Sunset Blvd., driving in the opposite direction. "This mother****er wants to be a woman," Gilbert said Simpson remarked. "O.J. was looking straight at him and said 'I swear to God now look at him. You heed my words. That mother****r wants to be a woman." Simpson's father, Jimmie Simpson, was a well-known drag performer.

Radar obtained an exclusive photo of Simpson and Jenner together in the early '90s. "They were hanging around this park together and seemed very happy to be in each other's company!" a source told Radar of the pair's suspicious behavior at a park around that time. "I saw them disappear together behind a bush for a while. I couldn't believe it!" said the source.
"Bruce didn't have any friends, so Kris would ask Nicole if O.J. could take him out and about," dished Norman Pardo, Simpson's former manager. And Gilbert expanded on Simpson's feelings about the former Olympian: "He could just never stand him."
