Kato Kaelin last talked to O.J. Simpson in restroom at civil trial

It’s been years since the deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman and the subsequent criminal and civil trials of O.J. Simpson.

Several names emerged from the trials and have since gained pop-culture fame. Kato Kaelin, the aspiring actor who lived in Simpson’s guest house, is one such figure.

O.J. Simpson’s white Ford Bronco found—reportKaelin has appeared in several TV shows and movies, and now hosts a Dish Network sports talk show, which he was promoting Monday on “The Dan Patrick Show.”

During the interview, Patrick asked Kaelin when was the last time he talked with Simpson. Kaelin told Patrick it was in a restroom during the deposition for the civil trial, which wrapped up in 1997.

“I was nervous,” Kaelin said. “I couldn’t pee. I was next to him at the urinal, and he had come in during the break. He said, ‘Hey, what’s up?’

I had already done about an hour and a half of deposition against him. That was at the civil trial. Then, I walked out and I’ve never seen him again.”

When asked if Simpson ever reached out from prison, Kaelin said “no.”

Kaelin is currently writing reviews of FX’s “American Crime Story: The People v. OJ Simpson” for the New York Daily News.
