Kato Kaelin raised plenty of eyebrows when he recently said he definitely knows O.J. Simpson carried out the murders 18 years ago.
But now Kaelin is denying the reports, claiming he doesn’t know if the former NFL star killed his ex-wife, Nicole Brown, according to an interview with TMZ.
The former Brentwood houseguest is stating he has no “firsthand knowledge” of Simpson killing Brown, or her pal Ron Goldman.
During the four days Kaelin spent on the witness stand, he gave inconsistent information – and consistently rambled – leading Prosecutor Marcia Clark to ask Kaelin to be a hostile witness.
Kaelin, now 53, has given again hints of Simpson being responsible in carrying out the murders.
“So, do I feel he’s guilty? Yes, but can I prove it? No,” Kaelin said to Headline News last week. “And that’s what happened in the court of law.”
He added more wood into the fire when he gave more comments to the New York Post recently by saying, “The statute of limitations has now passed… So, I can now say… Yes, [O.J. Simpson] did it.”
Kaelin also added he hadn’t come forward, because he was “too scared.”
His comments follow Los Angeles Deputy district attorney Christopher Darden’s accusation of Simpson’s former defense attorney Johnnie Cochran of tampering with the infamous bloody glove that didn’t fit Simpson. (Robert Kardashian was also part of Simpson's defense team.)
Simpson, now 65, was acquitted of murder, but found liable for the death of Brown and Goldman in a 1997 civil trial.
The former running back is currently serving a 33-year jail sentence for armed robbery and kidnapping in Las Vegas, Nevada.
