Starting with OJ’s contemplation of suicide, which was featured in the series’ first episode, Khloe explained that the producers and writers have understandably used some creative licence, revealing that the incident took place “in my room, not Kim’s room”.

“They’ve done a great job,” she insisted. “I appreciate the way they’ve portrayed my father.”

She continued: “I’m not upset about it but there was one scene of the kids chanting “Kardashians” when my dad was reading the potential suicide note.

“I called up Kim because I was like 10 [years old] back then, and said ‘did that really happen?’ and she said ‘absolutely not that didn’t happen!'”
