Kim Kardashian says the media got it all wrong when they speculated her father helped O.J.Simpson get rid of the alleged murder weapon used to kill Ron Goldman and his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson.
The day after the June 12, 1994 double murders, Rob Kardashian, was seen leaving his friend O.J.’s home with what the New York Times described as a “bulging” garment bag.
Would-be sleuths speculated the Louis Vuitton bag contained damning evidence of O.J.’s guilt.
When Rob later joined O.J.’s defense team some speculated he did so in order not to be called to testify in the subsequent 1995 trial.

In a new interview with GQ, Kim Kardashian, claims she personally searched the bag and there was nothing of note in it.
“I know people said at the time that he [joined Simpson’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 told the publication. “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.’ ”
GQ: Did you really go through it?
GQ: What was in it?
Kim: “Just toiletries and clothes and golf clothes. Just random stuff. I’m pretty sure it’s, like, still in—probably in my dad’s storage.”
On October 3, 1995, O.J. was found not guilty in the deaths of Nicole and Ron. Their murders remain unsolved.
