Kato Kaelin Now Claims That OJ Simpson DID Murder Nicole Brown And Ron Goldman


18 years ago, Kato Kaelin testified in open court in defense of OJ Simpson during Simpson’s murder trial of his wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman. Partly due to Kaelin’s testimony, Simpson was found not guilty of murder. In a new interview with Cindy Adams of The New York Post, Kaelin now claims that OJ “did it” (referring to the murders) and is coming forward with this admission now that the statue of limitations has run out and he cannot be prosecuted for this admission. The NY Post story started to pick up steam today when, for some reason, inspired Kaelin to sort of deny the comments he supposedly made to the Post. Click below to read the comments attributed to him by the NY Post and then read what he has to say after those comments were published.

Unless you were born after 1996, you know Kato Kaelin. In the Year of Our Lord 1994, Kato Kaelin was famous. Hot. Headlines. Front page. In everyone’s mouth. On everybody’s lips. TV, radio, newspapers. Kindergarten kids crayonned his name. More mentions of Kato and lawyer Kardashian than today’s mentions of Kanye and Kardashian’s kid Kim. He was a star of O.J. Simpson’s trial for killing his wife, Nicole. At their house that night, he saw, he heard. He knew who, what and where. The prosecution labeled Kaelin a hostile witness. Unemployed, a freeloader, did he tell the truth then? The world smelled O.J.’s guilt. Simpson went free. Ask Kaelin today, this very minute, if O.J. — currently jailed in Vegas on a separate charge — killed his wife, and I repeat his exact words: “The statute of limitations has now passed . . . so I can now say . . . yes, he did it.” Why didn’t he come forward and tell the truth? Ask why he let O.J. Simpson get away with murder, and I repeat his exact words: “I was too scared. I was terrified.” Time and his moment have passed. Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here together in memoriam of Kato Kaelin’s dead career. He says: “People hated me. I’ve been spat upon. They threw gum in my coffee.”

So according to Adams, he plainly said “yes, he did it”. According to TMZ, Kaelin is now saying that he did not say those words:

Kato Kaelin just told TMZ … he NEVER told the New York Post that he knows OJ Simpson murdered his wife or that he’s only coming forward now because the statute of limitations on perjury has run. Kato says he was shocked when he read the report which quoted him as saying, “The statute of limitations has now passed … so I can now say … yes, he did it.” Kato tells TMZ … he never said any of those things to reporter Cindy Adams or anyone else. Kato says he has expressed his opinion over the years … that he THINKS Simpson killed Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman … but tells us, “I have no first hand knowledge.”

Honestly, anyone who believes *anything* that an, IMHO, opportunist freeloader like Kaelin says is a bit foolish themselves. I know you young’ns may not be familiar with Kato Kaelin and his antics but he garnered quite a bit of fame because of his testimony in the OJ Simpson trial … he milked that fame for all it was worth at the time. Had there been the reality TV show culture then that we have now, he would’ve had his own show for sure … maybe more than one. It doesn’t really matter that Kaelin has come forward now with the truth or not … it will make no difference one way or the other. Kaelin is prolly enjoying his new 15 seconds of fame and may try to parlay that into something substantial … I doubt he’d get a show but maybe he can get a book deal. Ugh. He’s just so gross.

Do any of y’all remember Kato Kaelin? What do you think of his new comments?

    I totally believe he told the New Yoork Post that. He is a disgusting human being. IF he knew O.J. was guilty back then and had any proof whatsoever he should have spoken up.

  • Bea

    Agree on ALL counts Trent. Well said!

  • Krissy

    I have to say….Kato was NEVER in a position to know whether or not OJ committed the crime. He wasn’t even at the house where it took place. He was at the home that OJ returned to after committing the act (if he did do it anyway, wink). At most, all he could add was a bit of context as to OJ’s location that night, but since he never actually saw him, he just heard him, his testimony wouldn’t have gotten the prosecution very far anyway.

    IMO, Kato was never in a position to “let OJ Simpson get away with murder”.

    • @Krissy — “Kato was NEVER in a position to know whether or not OJ committed the crime.” Unless he flat out lied at the time. I can’t even believe we’re talking about Kato Kaelin again.

    • Krissy

      But since he wasn’t at the Nicole Simpson house, where the crime took place, the most he could do was speculate. Factually, the only thing he could testify to was whether OJ was at home or not. He could have lied about a bunch of things, but there were only one set of bloody footprints at Nicole’s house.

      I can’t believe he is back in the news either! I was home sick from school the day that the OJ verdict was read, and I remember sitting on the couch with my dog and some soup wondering how in the world this man was found not guilty. Still don’t understand all of these years later. I thought the physical evidence was more damning than anything Kato could have offered.

    • @Krissy — “I thought the physical evidence was more damning than anything Kato could have offered.” Same here. And even tho we’re talking about this again now, I doubt anyone will even remember this latest blip in a few days.

    • Krissy

      I am so glad he didn’t get a reality show. You are so right, if the trial had happened now, he totally would. Blech.

    • DFV

      OJ could have been acting erratic and told him what he did that night (and paid him to not say anything). He also could have seen him come home with blood on him or heard him make phone calls that would give him away. There’s a lot of possibilities.

  • Rebecca

    It’s hard to believe he was a key witness at the time. Unfortch, since it seemed so obvious that OJ was guilty (and still does), I remember this whole trial seeming like a charade. Doesn’t matter what Kato said then or now.

  • NA

    what’s a prolly?

  • Cupcake

    @ NA – means probably

  • rOXy

    Kato just needs to recede into the shadows or crawl back under his rock. He’s a slime burger and I wouldn’t give a rat’s ass for anything he has to say. You just know he loves seeing his name in the headlines again. If the only claim to fame he has is a connection to this horrific crime, then that says enough for me and I can’t be bothered.
