It has been over 27 years since Nicole Brown Simpson, former American footballer O.J. Simpson’s wife, and her friend, Ron Goldman, were killed at her home in Los Angeles, California. Since O.J. had a history of physical abuse and domestic violence against Nicole before her death, he quickly became the prime suspect of the unfortunate incident.
Even though the ensuing jury trial, also dubbed as the “Trial of the Century”, ended on O.J.’s acquittal, he was later found liable for both deaths in 1997.
While Nicole’s gruesome murder had impacts on many of her family members and friends, her sister Tanya Brown was probably most affected by it as she went as far as to attempt suicide to escape from that sad feeling.
Learn what Tanya Brown is up to now, her job, net worth, and personal life in this article. Also, find out about her reactions to Kim Kardashian’s recent SNL monologue, which had references to Nicole Brown Simpson’s murder and the trials surrounding the event.
Meet Tanya Brown, Nicole Brown Simpson Sister
To say that Tanya Brown and Nicole Brown were close to each other would simply be an understatement.
Tanya struggled to cope with Nicole’s loss for years. She even revealed on her website that she had “developed unhealthy coping mechanics” following the trial.
Speaking at The Dr. Oz Show in 2020, Tanya also talked about attempting suicide in 2004 to escape all the sadness within her. She said, “I went big,” during an episode of The Dr. Oz Show. Tanya added: “But it wasn’t just from unresolved grief and pain from Nicole; it was numerous other losses. I lost a lot of friends of mine when I was in high school, a couple of best friends right after high school, and then the trigger happened.”
During The Dr. Oz Show, Tanya also sounded kind of angry toward Nicole for not telling her about the alleged domestic abuse. That being said, Tanya said that she also knows the reasons why Nicole and many other women who face domestic abuse keep quiet.
She said, “It’s embarrassing… They’re scared, they’re embarrassed, there’s a lot of shame.”
Now talking about Tanya’s reaction to Kim’s opening monologue on a recent SNL episode which made references to Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman murders and trials, she obviously was furious and even called out SNL writers for portraying her sister’s murder as a comedy.
Now in case you did not know, Kim Kardashian had a close connection to the O.J. trial. In addition to her dad, the late Robert Kardashian, being a friend of O.J. Simpson and one of his attorneys during the case, Kim’s mom, Kris Jenner, was also close with Nicole.
With this in mind, the SNL writers decided to have a little fun with the writing. In her opening monologue, among many other things, Kim also talked about her dad and thanked him for introducing the “first Black person” to her. She then moved ahead to say: “Wanna take a stab in the dark at who it was? It’s sort of weird to remember the first Black person you met, but O.J. does leave a mark. Or several. Or none at all. I still don’t know.”
