The Kardashian-Jenner family is popular for having ‘K’ in their initials. Interestingly, their is an interesting story behind Kendall Jenner’s middle name, Nicole. Appearing on her sister Kylie's Snapchat in a short clip, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star explained that her middle name is after Nicole Brown Simpson who was her mother's best friend. She also said in the clip that she is honoured to have this name.
The 20-year-old's middle name is a heartfelt tribute to Nicole Brown Simpson, who was murdered the year before Kendall's birth. It was Nicole's death that led to the trial of OJ Simpson, which is currently the subject of popular drama The People Vs OJ Simpson.
The camaraderie between the Kardashian and the Simpson family go way back in time. Kris Jenner’s first husband, late Robert Kardashian represented O.J Simpson in the murder trial.
Robert Kardashian and OJ Simpson met in 1967. Simpson was also the best man at Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner's wedding in the year 1978. Kris Jenner was also close to Nicole Simpson. After his wife Nicole's death, OJ Simpson was charged with the murder and was acquitted of all criminal charges in a now-famous criminal trial. Rob Kardashian also played a big part in the trial. He had let his license to practice law become inactive before the Simpson case, but revived it to help in Simpson's defence.
