'I could have saved Nicole Brown's life'She isn't one to hold things back, but Kris Jenner has kept a relatively big secret to herself...until now.
The Kardashian family matriarch reveals in her upcoming memoir that she could have saved best friend Nicole Brown Simpson's life.
Brown, the ex-wife of football player O.J. Simpson, was found brutally murdered at her Los Angeles home on June 12, 1994, as was her friend Ron Goldman.

Kris tells the truth: about best friend Nicole Brown in her new memoir
Kris was busy with her own brood at the time and pushed their meeting to the following day.
Nicole persisted. 'That's okay, can you meet me tomorrow for lunch? I really have to talk to you about something really, really important,' she insisted.
According to Kris, however: 'It would be the last time I would ever speak to Nicole.'
She says she awoke the following morning to the horrific news that her best friend had been stabbed to death.
'I instinctively knew that in some way O.J. had something to do with her death,' she says.
The drama: O.J. and Nicole Brown-Simpson
She was even more horrified to learn why Nicole had so desperately wanted to meet with her that morning.
A mutual friend told her later that 'Nicole had been beaten up by O.J. and she had been keeping this physical proof in the form of photographs and, it would turn out, other evidence, in which she had documented seventeen years of abuse.'
'Nicole really wanted someone close to her to know what was going on, so that somebody - namely me - could be a witness.'

O.J. stood trial for Nicole and Ron's death and was found not guilty, though in a civil case he was found liable for their deaths and ordered to pay $34 million in damages to the victims' families. They only received a few thousand each.
Ironically, it was Kris' first husband, lawyer Robert Kardashian, that helped to get the former football player a non guilty verdict.
Simpson is in jail anyway these days, serving a 33-year-old sentence for kidnapping, assault with a deadly weapon and other felonies as he attempted to recover what he claimed was stolen sports memorabilia.
