The O.J. Simpson verdict was one of the most-watched television events in history. Around 150 million people, that's 57% of the country, stopped everything they were doing at 10 am to watch what many believed to be a guilty man be declared free to go.

Finally, he can get on to the business of stealing his Heisman trophy back.

Every part of the verdict was shocking, not the least of which was when O.J. leaned in to whisper to his council Robert Shapiro.

"I did it." J/k.

Shapiro has never revealed what Simpson said in those first moments after the acquittal, until talking with FOX's Megyn Kelly Tuesday night.  

As Shapiro told Kelly, O.J.'s first words after being found not guilty were, "You had told me this would be the result from the beginning. You were right."

If you take a look at Shapiro's reaction to O.J., he immediately checks the camera, terrified that someone might have heard. It's like he thought he'd been caught.

That face looks guilty as hell.

When Kelly asked if he really believed Simpson was innocent, he gave what seems like resounding lawyer-speak for "no."

"As far as moral justice," he told Kelly, "I haven't discussed it with anyone, including my wife."

Yeah, you can't unburden yourself about how you probably got a double murderer off; it could really cause a rift in your marriage. Best to never speak of it again. Or until you're back on the news; whichever comes first.
