For over 20 years, we’ve all been trying to figure out the truth behind prosecutor Marcia Clark and Christopher Darden’s relationship. And now … the cat is finally out of the bag.
During the 1994 O.J. Simpson trial, the prosecutors appeared to be more than just co-workers. In fact, FX’s recent retelling of the trial alone revealed that there was probably something going on.
Following Sunday night’s Emmy Awards and the success of FX’s The People v. O.J. Simpson, Darden exclusively sat down with Entertainment Tonight’s Lauren Zima and admitted to having more than a friendship with Clark.
“We were more than friends,” Darden said. “We were inseparable back then.” When asked if he would ever share exactly what happened between he and Marcia, he explained, “I think I have told the truth … In lawyer land, a half-truth is a truth.”
But wait, while being pressed by Zima, Darden said he never kissed Marcia, eluding to having an emotional relationship with the author and television correspondent. “I’m not a kisser. Kissing is intimate. Kissing is more intimate than sex,” he said.
He then went on to describe his chemistry with Clark as “fire” but then backtracked and said, “I don’t think fire’s romantic. I think fire’s passion.”
OK, so maybe he didn’t tell all — but he definitely gave us more than ever.
Sterkling K. Brown, who portrayed Darden in The People v. O.J. Simpson and Sarah Paulson, who played Clark in the series, both took home Emmy Awards for the roles on the hit show.
