"My dad had a library, and when you pushed on this wall there was this whole hidden closet room, with all of his O.J. evidence books," Kim said.
Kim Kardashian's desire to follow in her late father Robert Kardashian's footsteps and become a lawyer dominated headlines this week, but the reality star's fascination with the law can be traced back as far as the O.J. Simpson murder case.
Kim recalled, in a conversation with Vogue, how O.J.'s legal "dream team" would come to her family home to work on the case when she was a child: "On the weekends they used our home as an office, with Johnnie Cochran and Bob Shapiro."
"My dad had a library, and when you pushed on this wall there was this whole hidden closet room, with all of his O.J. evidence books," Kim said. "On weekends I would always snoop and look through. I was really nosy about the forensics."
Robert was a prominent figure in the sensational mid-90s case, which continues to provoke controversy to this day.
Kim's dad was a personal friend of O.J.'s and became part of his defense team in 1995 when the former NFL star was tried for the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.
While O.J. was found not guilty in the criminal trial he was later found liable in a civil suit filed by Goldman's family.
Kim, meanwhile, has an apprenticeship with a San Francisco law firm and plans on taking the bar exam. Her decision to pursue the law was recently spurred on by her desire to reform the prison system. The reality star most notably aided in freeing convicted drug trafficker Alice Marie Johnson, who saw her sentence commuted by President Trump.
