Kris Jenner is yet to acknowledge the death of OJ Simpson.

The 68-year-old star has been posting on her Instagram Story this week after the news the former NFL athlete died on Wednesday aged 76, following a battle with cancer.

OJ had a complicated relationship with the Kardashian-Jenner family, having been close friends with Kris’ first husband Robert Kardashian Sr for years.

Robert was part of the football star’s legal team in his 1995 murder trial, after he was accused of murdering his former partnerNicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman, the previous year.

He pleaded not guilty and was acquitted following a highly-publicized court case, which was transformed into an award-winning TV show, while Nicole’s father later launched a civil trial against OJ in 1997, where a jury unanimously found him responsible for the two deaths.

Kris, who was friends with Nicole, has not posted about OJ’s death after it was announced on Thursday.

Since the news, she has only taken to her Instagram Stories with a series of adverts for Sprinter Vodka Soda, and sharing a video promoting her daughter Kylie Jenner’s cosmetics range.

Her most recent Instagram post was earlier this week, as she shared a carousel of photos before her date night with Corey Gamble.

Her lack of comment about OJ’s death comes after her first husband Caitlyn Jenner shared a very blunt response, as she simply penned: ‘Good Riddance #OJSimpson.’

Meanwhile, Ronald Goldman’s father Fred has insisted OJ’s death is ‘no great loss to the world’, adding to NBC News: ‘The only thing I have to say is it’s just further reminder of Ron being gone all these years.’

OJ’s family confirmed the news on social media, sharing a statement on his official Twitter account which read: ‘On April 10th, our father, Orenthal James Simpson, succumbed to his battle with cancer.

‘He was surrounded by his children and grandchildren.

‘During this time of transition, his family asks that you please respect their wishes for privacy and grace. -The Simpson Family.’

The Kardashians were thrust into the spotlight during OJ’s trial, and many have questioned their close bond with him, with Kris subjected to countless rumors she had an affair with the late star, and secretly welcomed daughter Khloe Kardashian with him.

In 2017, the momager broke down in tears during an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, fuming that the scrutiny had kept up for decades.

‘They printed a story I was sleeping with OJ. After 25 years you think it just wouldn’t be a thing,’ she cried, while two years later OJ insisted there was never any romantic interest between the two, as he also called out theories he was Khloe’s father.
