Playing Kim Kardashian Says She Loved 'The People v. O.J. Simpson,' Drops Bombshell on Real-Life Trial

Kim Kardashian is a big fan of FX's critically acclaimed series, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.

The 35-year-old reality star talks about watching the series in her candid new interview with GQ magazine, a surreal experience given how close the Kardashian family is to the case. Kim's late father, Robert Kardashian, was a close friend of O.J. Simpson and a member of his defense team.

Kim -- who says she and husband Kanye West "loved" the series -- has nothing but praise for actor David Schwimmer, who portrayed the late attorney on the small screen.

"There were times I was watching it and I was like, 'Oh sh*t, this is dead-on,'" Kim tells the magazine. "Like, 'That looks like my dad. It feels like my dad.' It was eerie to watch sometimes."

But she's not as impressed with her and her siblings' portrayal.

"I don't think those parts were accurate," she says. "I think our ages were off and our looks were off."

Another example of an inaccuracy?

"[The show] said [O.J.] tried to kill himself in my bedroom and it was Khloe's bedroom, not my bedroom," Kim points out.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star gets pretty candid about her real-life experience during the O.J. Simpson trial, which began during her freshman year at Marymount High, an all-girls Catholic school in Bel Air. Kim nonchalantly brings up one big mystery surrounding the original 1995 trial, claiming she knows what was inside a garment bag that her late father was seen carrying from O.J.'s house the day Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman's bodies were discovered. The New York Times reported at the time that the attorney was filmed picking up a "bulging bag" outside of Simpson's home, but the bag was later introduced into evidence empty.

"I know people said at the time that he [joined O.J.'s defense team] so he couldn't be called as a witness, because he had that Louis Vuitton bag that supposedly had the [murder] weapon and stuff like that," Kim says.  "But that bag was sitting at my dad’s house. I remember I went through it. The news was like, 'Where is this Louis Vuitton bag?' And I'm like, 'Oh, it's upstairs.'"

Kim says she "totally" looked inside.

"Just toiletries and clothes and golf clothes," she claims about the bag's contents. "Just random stuff, I'm pretty sure it's, like, still in -- probably in my dad's storage."

Kim, of course, wasn't the only family member affected by the infamous trial. In February, her sister Khloe Kardashian recalled the "horrible time" the Kardashians went through during the O.J. Simpson trial, when she made an appearance on The Late Late Show.

"It was so crazy. People were really cruel during that time," Khloe recalled to host James Corden. "They used to key 'guilty' on my dad's car [when] we were at church. It was horrible at that time. They were incredible mean and cruel."
