O.J. Simpson prosecutor Chris Darden finally concedes he and Marcia Clark were ‘more than friends’

A scandalous confession has finally emerged from the O.J. Simpson murder trial. Attorney Chris Darden, long dogged by rumors that he and his co-prosecutor Marcia Clark had been romantically involved during the 1995 Trial of the Century, admitted at last there’d been some truth to the speculation. “We were more than friends,” he told Entertainment Tonight in a recent interview. “We were inseparable back then.” Darden, 60, then doled out a series of cryptic nuggets.Asked about “the whole truth” of his and Clark’s relationship, he replied, “I think I have told the truth … In lawyer land, a half truth is a truth.”Asked to encapsulate their relationship in a word, he chose “fire,” but insisted fire wasn’t “romantic.” (“I think fire’s passion,” he said.) Darden, who said he and Clark haven’t kept in touch, was at least clear on one thing: They never kissed. “I’m not a kisser,” he told ET. “Kissing is intimate. Kissing is more intimate than sex.”Clark was equally coy in a March interview with Ellen DeGeneres, conceding only that they had “danced” when asked if they’d made out.“We were really partners,” she said during the talk-show cross-examination. “We were trenchmates.” FX’s “The People v. O.J Simpson” — starring Sarah Paulson as Clark and Sterling K. Brown as Darden — reinvigorated interest earlier this year over the highly publicized trial, which resulted in Simpson’s acquittal for the murders of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman. The 10-episode miniseries cleaned up at Sunday’s Emmy Awards, winning nine out of its 22 nominations. Paulson, who won an award for her portrayal of the beleaguered lead prosecutor, brought the real Clark to the ceremony as her plus-one.
