You had to have been living under a rock for the last 20 years if you haven't heard about the OJ Simpson case.

The gruesome murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman on June 12 1994, the Bronco car chase and the subsequent trial of her ex-husband, kept the nation enthralled, and interest in the case has recently been resurrected with the broadcast of the gloriously camp The People vs OJ.

The nature of the televised trial, the larger than life characters involved and OJ's stunning acquittal have all added to the notoriety of the case, as did the civil court's later finding that OJ was in fact responsible for the murders.

There aren't many people who don't believe that OJ did it. The general consensus is that he managed to buy his way out of jail with his defense 'Dream Team' who took the prosecution by surprise and played the race card magnificently (aided of course by racist cop Mark Fuhrman who played right into their hands).

The Theory

There is a compelling assertion by renowned private investigator William C Dear in his book OJ Is Innocent And I Can Prove It that OJ Simpson did not carry out the murders after all. Dear concludes that Simpson was definitely at the scene shortly after the crime occurred (hence the presence of his footprints and blood), but that the murders were actually carried out by his then 24-year-old son, Jason Simpson and that OJ took the rap for him. The fact that literally no-one other than OJ was ever investigated or questioned about the crime is pretty inconceivable and it certainly seems that the cops decided very early on that they had their man and any evidence that didn't fit with that narrative was disregarded.

The 'Proof' (as put forward by William C Dear)

  • Jason's medical history. Jason had been diagnosed with "intermittent explosive disorder" and was prescribed the drug Depakote to control his seizures and rages. Jason had attempted suicide on at least thee occasions, one time stabbing himself in the stomach. Literally six months before the killings, Jason had visited the emergency room because he heard voices in his head and said he felt as if he was "going to rage" because he had run out of Depakote. He stopped taking Depakote two months before the murders.

Pill bottle

The medication prescribed to Jason Simpson for his rage disorder.

  • His violent history. Jason had previously nearly killed a girlfriend and cut off her hair with a knife. He had also attacked another girlfriend in a fit of rage and narrowly avoided causing her serious injury. At the time of the murders Jason was 24-years old and on probation for assault with a deadly weapon after he attacked his boss with a kitchen knife. The crime scene at Nicole's home showed the manner of the murders to be particularly ferocious. Nicole was practically decapitated and Ron was stabbed up to 22 times in a prolonged fight with his attacker. Police described the murders as rage killings.
  • The weapon. Jason Simpson was a chef and as such had access to an assortment of knives (one expert says that the murderer used two different knives during the attack). He was familiar with knives and his past actions show they were his weapon of choice for violence. Jason's diary entries show him to be obsessed with violence and also with knives. One entry reads; "It's the year of the knife for me. I cut away my problems with a knife."
  • The motive. Nicole was due to have dinner with her family, including her parents at the Beverly Hills restaurant where Jason was a chef. He had put a lot of planning into it, bought the food, and was looking forward to showcasing his talents. He had long struggled to step out from under his father's shadow, having failed in the football scholarship OJ had arranged for him and, in cooking, had finally found something that he was good at. However Nicole changed her plans at the last minute and dined elsewhere. Now that might not be a motive for murder for a person of sound, reasonable mind—but a violent person with a diagnosed rage disorder who was off his meds at the time? That scenario could be a trigger.
  • The alibi. Jason's alibi for the time of the murders was that he was cooking at a restaurant where he worked in a open kitchen. There is however a period of time during the murder window when Jason was by himself and doesn't have an alibi that can be supported by anyone else (colleagues say he closed the kitchen early). Plus the punch out time recorded on his time card that evening was handwritten—despite the fact that the automatic electronic time card clock was working

Time card machine

The electronic time-clock in full working order on the night of the murders—yet Jason's timecard was handwritten.

  • The hat. There was a black navy 'watch cap' found at the crime scene which contained animal hair and hair fibers that did not match OJ. Photographs of Jason taken a year before the murders show him sitting with a dog wearing an identical watch cap to the one found at the scene. His DNA was never tested for a match.

OJ Simpson's son

Jason Simpson wearing a black knitted hat exactly like the one found at the crime scene.

  • The cover up. The day after the murders, before he was arrested, OJ hired a top criminal attorney named Carl Jones to represent Jason. Why would he do this when Jason hadn't even been spoken to by the LAPD and wasn't a suspect? After the slow speed police chase when OJ finally made it back to his house on Rockingham, Jason rushed at the Bronco and was seen shouting and gesticulating at his father and Al Cowlings (who was driving the Bronco) before being pulled back by police. What was he so desperate to communicate to OJ? (Check out the footage of the car chase below and see Jason approach the vehicle around the 4:12 mark.)
  • The lack of evidence against OJ.
    • There was blood and skin found under Nicole's fingernails and also drops of blood on her back that did not match OJ.
    • There were 15 separate unidentified fingerprints at the crime scene that did not belong to OJ.
    • Ron Goldman was a 3rd degree black belt in karate and he fought for his life as is evidenced by defensive wounds on his bruised and swollen hands. OJ voluntarily stripped at the LAPD and there were no marks or bruises anywhere on his face or body to indicate he had been in any kind of altercation.
    • Whilst OJ had a history of domestic abuse, none of this had ever escalated to a level where he used weapons. In fact it was well known that he hated the sight of blood. His previous fights with Nicole had been the subject of complaints as they were loud, noisy, screaming affairs. Is it really believable that one night he is in a rage bigger than any before, one that leads him to commit two violent murders and yet he is silent, not screaming his lungs out, despite a lengthy fight with Ron Goldman?

So there you have it.

There is without doubt a compelling argument that OJ' son perhaps could actually have carried out the murders. That yes, OJ was at the scene (was he called in a panic by his son?)—but being present at the scene does not necessarily mean that he was the murderer.

Ask yourself, who would you risk your freedom and your life for? Who would you go to any lengths to protect? Your child maybe?

Oh boy, are we all in for a televisual treat next year—courtesy American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.

If there’s one thing Glee and American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy knows how to do really damn well, it’s producing gloriously camp TV shows. And, if the trailer for his latest masterpiece is anything to go by—he’s upping the ante yet further this time round.

Conspiracy Theory Thursday—Khloe Kardashian’s Real Dad Is OJ

American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, is the first installment of a new limited series, produced by Murphy, which is set to air next February, on FX.

Based on Jeffrey Toobin’s best-selling book, The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson, the show tells the story of the now infamous murder trial, from the viewpoint of the defense and prosecution attorneys involved in the case.

Ron Goldman’s Father—Rob Kardashian Hid Evidence For OJ Simpson!

It’s got all the hallmarks of must watch TV—a truly insane story that gripped the nation and remains controversial to this day, an award winning production and writing team, and a stellar cast.

Like, a REALLY stellar cast—Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson, John Travolta as defense attorney Robert Shapiro, David Schwimmer as defense attorney Robert Kardashian, Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark, Courtney B. Vance as defense attorney Johnnie Cochran, Bruce Greenwood as Los Angeles County District Attorney Gil Garcetti, Selma Blair as Kris Kardashian [now Kris Jenner], and Connie Britton as Faye Resnick.

Kanye West Thinks OJ Simpson Is ‘Amazing’

But, forget the acting pedigree—going by the trailer, the wigs and makeup alone are going to steal the goddamn show.

There’s Paulson’s ratty looking old rug masquerading as a hairdo; Travolta’s fake bushy eyebrows and layers-thick pancake makeup; Schwimmer with God only knows what the fuck on his head and face….

This is epic!

Oh, and then there’s the dialogue!

“Nobody gets killed in Brentwood,” opines Paulson, as Marcia Clark.

“I’m not black. I’m O.J.!”  Declares Gooding Jr., as Simpson.

“CHOOSE A SIDE!” Screams Vance, as Cochran.

“If it doesn’t fit, you must acquit,” says nobody in the trailer, but you just KNOW that’s coming.

Consider for a moment Kris Jenner, former wife of fabled defense lawyer Robert Kardashian, who sired four of her reality-star children: Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, and Rob.

Kris married her first husband in 1978 and divorced him in 1991 after having at least one affair that she admits to.

Kris Jenner and Robert Kardashian in happier times

The Theory

After his divorce from Kris, Robert Kardashian married two more times, in 1998 to Jan Ashley and again in 2003 to Ellen Pierson, shortly before he died of esophageal cancer.

Conspiracy Theory Thursday— Paul McCartney Died In 1966

Both Ashley and Pierson allege that Robert Kardashian told them that Khloé, born in 1984, was not his biological daughter.

Is it possible that Robert Kardashian's most (in)famous client, former NFL superstar OJ Simpson, is Khloé Kardashian's real dad?

The "Proof"

    • Kim and Kourtney are both significantly shorter than Khloé and have a notably different complexion. Robert Kardashian was 5'7" while OJ Simpson is 6'1".
    • Khloé once asked Kris if she was adopted, during an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 2009. A maternity test was done, which proved Kris was Khloé's mother, but no DNA was compared with her other siblings to see if their paternal DNA matched.
    • Kris admits to at least one affair during her marriage to Robert, during her 'mid-life crisis' when she was 30. Khloé was conceived when Kris was 29—it isn't absurd to speculate that Kris had more than one affair around this time.
    • Kris claims to know who Khloé's father is, but hasn't told Khloé or anyone else. If Khloé was conceived during the affair Kris admits to, wouldn't she tell everyone who Khloé's father was?
    • Before Kris and Robert divorced, the Simpsons and the Kardashians were close friends, often going on vacation together. L-R: Kris, Robert, OJ, Nicole Simpson Brown
    • Simpson, currently serving a maximum 33-year jail sentence in Nevada for armed robbery, has remained uncharacteristically quiet on the matter. OJ's manager, Norman Pardo told In Touch that "Khloé could be OJ's kid." In the same interview, Pardo revealed that when he has mentioned Khloé's paternity to Simpson, OJ just "giggles."
    • While in a twitter feud with the Kardashian Klan, model Amber Rose insinuated that Khloé's real father was OJ.

Conspiracy Theory Thursday—Tupac Shakur Faked His Death

    • Khloé has refused Kris' suggestions to have a paternity test.
    • This tweet, comparing Khloé's appearance to that of OJ's daughter, Sidney.

Conspiracy Theory Thursday—Joan Rivers Is Alive And Well, In FBI Witness Protection

    • Thomas Scotto, who testified for the defense in OJ's armed robbery trial and is a longtime friend of Simpson, has urged OJ and Khloé to submit DNA for a paternity test.

Why won't Khloé and OJ submit for paternity testing? Do they already know?

Is Khloé's real father OJ? Is this enough proof for you?

Conrad Hilton absolutely lost his shit on an international flight back in July last year—resulting in his arrest yesterday.

According to TMZ, witnesses say Paris' little brat brother became violent with flight attendants and that his behavior was so terrifying, children aboard the flight were crying.

According to police documents, the 20-year-old was heard yelling these gems:

"If you wanna square up to me bro, then bring it and I will fucking fight you."

"I am going to fucking kill you."

"I will fucking rip through you."

"I will fucking own anyone on this flight; they are fucking peasants."

Witnesses claim Hilton then started maniacally punching the bulkhead of the plane, which was mere inches from a flight attendant's face.

Witnesses also say they could smell marijuana was wafting out of the bathroom ... and believe Hilton had locked himself in there to smoke.

Finally, like a little two-year-old following a temper tantrum, Conrad wore himself out and fell asleep—at which point the captain authorized the crew to handcuff him to his seat.

Witnesses told officials that Conrad grabbed a flight attendant's collar and fumed, "I could get you all fired in 5 minutes. I know your boss! My father will pay this out. He has done it before. Dad paid $300k last time."

According to documents, Hilton admitted to taking a sleeping pill before the flight and then boasted about how he "buried" the flight attendants.

"I told all of them I could get all of their jobs taken away in less than 30 seconds."

Hilton is currently being represented by Robert Shapiro of O.J. Simpson Dream Team fame. Shapiro confirms his client took a sleeping pill before the flight and he wasn't himself—and that there are numerous news reports detailing cases of people experiencing adverse effects, including aggressive outbursts triggered by sleeping pills.

Welcome to Popdust’s exclusive feature Kim’s Korner™, where you can speak your mind to Kim Kardashian.

Kimmie has one big regret, and it's name isn't Ray J.

Let's try to guess. Her butt? Just kidding.

Let's see. Is it that her dad was O.J. Simpson's BFF?

Or that her mom, Kris Jenner, is a money hungry fame-whore? Is is that her brother, Rob Kardashian, threw in the towel, and ditched her wedding? Her nose-job, possibly?

So many things to regret, one might think, but here's the thing the one that haunts her. In 2011, she recorded a song, Jam (Turn It Up), produced by The Dream. And evidently it is not up to her standards. Here's how Kim put it to Andy Cohen:

But if there’s one thing in life that I wish I didn’t do ... I don’t like it when people kind of dabble into things they shouldn’t be. And that I don’t think I should have. Like, what gave me the right to think I could be a singer? Like, I don’t have a good voice.

Wow. I get it. Like, I know I'm not good at sex tapes so that's why I haven't made one.

You can see the video for Kim's song here.

What would you like to say to Kim about her one regret?

oj simpson rob kardashian hid evidence

It's been 20 years since OJ Simpson was acquitted of killing Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman, but the families of the victims will never forget it.

In a new interview with MailOnline, Ron's father Fred Goldman, 73, is still convinced not only of OJ's guilt, but of the part Robert Kardashian played in it.

The People v OJ Simpson Trailer—Gloriously Camp TV Coming Your Way Soon

According to Fred, Robert, a trusted confidante and member of OJ's legal team, took evidence away from the scene of the crime in a suitcase that has never been discovered.

Robert, the father of Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and Rob Kardashian, died of esophageal cancer in 2003.

Conspiracy Theory Thursday—Khloe Kardashian’s Real Dad Is OJ

Refusing to call the former athlete by his name, Fred merely refers to him as "the killer".

"That evidence would have convicted ‘the killer,’" Fred said. "Yes, it's 20 years later and it's never any different. Whether it's two days, two months or now twenty years later, nothing has changed. It's the same loss, the same feeling that there is a missing piece in our family and it's just as intense as the day he died. It is still devastating. Honestly, any family who has gone through this nightmare, understands. I still cry about my son and anything can trigger this emotion.  It may be just a thought, a memory, a conversation, just a word or if someone reminded me of him."

Fred explains the reason Ron was even at Nicole's home that night was to return her glasses.

Kanye West Thinks OJ Simpson Is ‘Amazing’

He doesn't believe they were dating, and thinks the trial was particularly fraught because of the bad feeling at the time between the Black community and the LAPD.

"The prosecution did an admiral job but the courtroom was free-for-all because of Judge Ito. A lot of things were done that were foolish!  The gloves... how can you try on gloves that were soaked in blood, they were brittle and you want someone to put them on over latex gloves? What are you contaminating? That should've never happened."
