In an intimate interview with Van Jones on Nov. 14 at the Variety/Rolling Stone's Criminal Justice Reform Summit in Los Angeles, Kardashian, 38, said she often watched her late father, attorney Robert Kardashian, work with the famous "Dream Team,” including when they defended O.J. Simpson in the Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman murder case.
Kardashian said her interest in the law and criminal justice was sparked by her long conversations with her high-powered attorney father.
"When he was involved in cases like the OJ case, that one was ... obviously that was his best friend and it was deeper," Kardashian said. "Nicole was my mom's best friend. It was more than just a case he took on. But a lot of the meetings were held at our home and we would have Johnny Cochran, Shawn Holley, who is here in the front row who helped us with Alice Marie Johnson … Bob Shapiro. All the attorneys would meet in our house.”
"And so they had all of the evidence books in the library of my dad's house and so on the weekends when no one was around, I would go over these evidence books and go over crime scene photos and wild stuff,” she continued.
"My sister Kourtney would be, 'What are you doing? Why do you care about this stuff? Leave it alone. You are not suppose to be going through it.' I was just always so interested,” she added. “I would just ask my dad questions. I was always really present."
During the interview, Kardashian also spoke about her work in criminal justice and said she didn't care about the backlash she received when she met Donald Trump in the White House to ask for clemency on behalf of Alice Marie Johnson.
"For me, it's a life versus my reputation," Kardashian explained. "People talk s**t about me all day long. They really do. What more can they say about me? Seriously? When I weighed the options of bad stories about me that would probably last a week in this news cycle versus saving someone's life... that wasn't an option. I would gladly go there and take the heat."
