The O.J. Simspon 1994 Bronco freeway chase is often the most associated event from the now notorious case, but something much more bizzare happened hours before: The now convicted felon contemplated committing suicide in a then 14-year-old Kim Kardashian's bedroom.
During an interview with ABC News' 20/20, American Tragedy: The Uncensored Story of the O.J. Simpson Defense author Lawrence Schiller claims that Simpson recorded a suicide tape in Kim's bedroom, but was stopped by her late father and his then-attorney, Robert Kardashian.
Schiller states that he sat in Kim's room on June 17, 1994 and recorded the tape while holding photos of his late wife Nicole — who he is accused of murdering — and their two children Justin and Sydney.
"Then O.J. said, 'I'm going to kill myself in this room,' and I said, 'You can't. This is my daughter's bedroom," Robert said in an earlier interview with Schiller. "My little girl Kim sleeps here. I can't have my little girl in this bedroom, and every time I come in here, I'm going to see your body lying in this. You can't do that.'"
