He’s spent the past eight years in jail, giving OJ Simpson ample time to ponder his love life.
And claims have emerged his fixations have become as twisted as his existence, with the shamed former American footballer apparently planning to pursue reality TV veteran Kris Jenner – and her ex-husband, now known as Caitlyn Jenner – if he’s released.
Bestselling writer Ian Halperin claims Simpson, 68, has nursed a 30-year crush on 60-year-old Jenner.
Halperin has been making a documentary on Simpson – eligible for parole next year – after he was jailed in 2008 for kidnap and the armed robbery of sports memorabilia.
The film-maker has also written a book on the Kardashians and says Simpson wants to marry Jenner.
The self-styled Kardashians’ ‘momager’ was married to Simpon’s former best pal, lawyer Robert Kardashian, who died in 2003 after being part of the legal ‘dream team’ that helped get Simpson acquitted of the infamous 1994 murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and waiter Ron Goldman.
Halperin told The Sun: “OJ has had a crush on Kris for ever. He believes the relationship that Kris is in now with Corey Gamble is a sham.
“He believes he is the man for her and intends to pursue her when he gets out of prison. There is definitely a long history there.
“He is very likely to get parole next year, so it won’t be long until he is released.”
Halperin also claimed he was also fixated on Jenner’s ex-husband, now Caitlyn Jenner, above with Kris before his sex-change operation, when he was Bruce Jenner.
The author added: “OJ is obsessed with Caitlyn. He is struck by how she has captured the hearts of the world and said with a straight face, ‘When I get out of here I would consider dating her too’.
“OJ definitely has a plan when he gets out of prison and he intends to be around the Kardashians.
“He is going to pitch to them about getting a spot on the show. He is broke, he needs money and he feels his only chance to get back on TV which is his dream, to hook up with his old ‘family’.”
Jenner’s now-dead ex-husband had doubts about the innocence of Simpson, above in his sporting glory days, innocence over the 1994 double-slaying of Nicole and Ron and severed contact with the NFL athlete after he was acquitted.
