Kris Jenner “Panicking” Over New O.J. Simpson Movie?
As Gossip Cop has reported, the murder trial of O.J. Simpson is the subject of a new FX miniseries called “American Crime Story.” The 10-episode show will feature David Schwimmer as the late Robert Kardashian, who served as a defense advisor for Simpson, with whom he was then close pals. Selma Blair was cast as Kris Jenner, and production began in May.
Now RadarOnline is claiming Jenner is “freaking out” after learning creator Ryan Murphy has “decided to turn her character into a major role in the series.” Incorrectly referring to the project as a “movie” at times, including in the headline, the webloid quotes a so-called “insider” as saying, “Kris is panicking over this and is desperate for intel on the plot.”
“Kris is convinced the only reason her character’s been given more airtime is because they’re going to explore all those old rumors about her having an affair with O.J.,” alleges the site’s source, who further claims Khloe Kardashian is upset, too, because she’s “had to face claims O.J.’s her dad on the back of it.”
The outlet’s snitch dramatically adds of Jenner, “This is her worst nightmare. She swears it’s not true, but even the implication or suggestion of it in that miniseries is going to cause her years of hell on earth.”
Here’s what’s really going on. On Thursday, RadarOnline featured an interview with one of Simpson’s former prison guards, who falsely claimed Kardashian was seeking a paternity test. Gossip Cop, of course, immediately corrected the nonsense.
Now on Friday, the webloid seemingly decided to use the regurgitated rumor as the basis for a new tall tale. And the site is once again off base. Jenner has actually been supportive of the Simpson series, gushing about Blair playing her when they met earlier this year. She also recently participated in a Lifetime Movie Network documentary about the case, as Gossip Cop previously reported, which is another indication she’s not concerned about her past being “explored.”
But given that “American Crime Story” doesn’t premiere until February 2016, Gossip Cop is sure RadarOnline will continue to sensationalize what is already a pretty sensational situation.
