KIM Kardashian shed a tear when she was reunited with OJ Simpson, she revealed on Friday.
The 38-year-old reality television star revealed that she cried when she bumped into the former NFL star at a club in Miami.
Kim, whose late father Robert was part of OJ’s legal defence team when he was accused of murdering his ex wife Nicole Brown Simpson, told her friend Jonathan Cheban’s Foodgod: OMFG podcast that she encountered him in the VIP section of a club while she was out with two of her sisters.
“I think the last time I saw him was in Miami,” she said.
“It was before he had gone to jail this last situation…I think me, Kourtney and Khloé were in Miami in a club – and we ran into him in the VIP section.”
“We all, I think, all started crying, and it was emotional, I think,” Kardashian West said on the podcast.
The star rarely speaks of the family’s connection to OJ – but her mum Kris Jenner was Nicole’s best friend.
She acknowledged she doesn’t “really talk about” Simpson – who was acquitted of murdering Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman, who were killed in 1994.
Kim explained that she doesn’t speak on the subject out of respect for the trauma it could cause his children.
“I just, you know, his kids are all so amazing, and Nicole’s kids, and I’m still somewhat friendly with his children,” Kardashian West explained.
“I don’t really talk to them, but I did connect with his son, a few years back, and I just have respect for them.
“And their lives must be extremely hard to really go through that.
“So, I always try to just keep to myself on that issue and not bring anything up for them, ’cause I know every time someone does, it’s super traumatic.”

“And there’s nothing worse than someone you knew from your childhood (who) just starts talking about your life,” she continued.
“And, I’ve seen that happen with people that have been close to us, and then they just start talking about us as kids and they really don’t know us now.”
“It gets so frustrating,” she added.
“So I always just try to be super respectful and just keep to myself on issues and that subject.”
OJ and Brown Simpson had two children together – while he has two additional kids still living.
In 2008, the former running back was convicted of robbery and kidnapping for his role in a Las Vegas heist.
He spent nine years at Lovelock Correctional Center outside Reno, before being released in 2017.
Robert Kardashian passed away in 2003 after being diagnosed with esophageal cancer.
