Johnnie Cochran's widow is FURIOUS at former O.J. Simpson prosecutor Chris Darden ... claiming allegations that Johnnie tampered with the infamous bloody glove are pure B.S.

TMZ spoke with famed attorney Shawn Holley -- Cochran's former right hand woman-- who tells us Johnnie's widow Dale Cochran is outraged by Darden's claim ... explaining, "It makes no sense."

Darden recently made the comments while speaking at Pace Law School ... saying, "I think Johnnie tore the lining. There were some additional tears in the lining so that O.J.'s fingers couldn't go all the way up into the glove."

Holley tells TMZ ... if Darden really did believe his insane theory he FAILED in his legal obligation to raise the issue in court ... adding, "to bring it up 17 years later when Johnnie Cochran is dead ... it's just, it's unbelievable. It's maddening."

Darden's an idiot. If the prosecution hadn't COMPLETELY messed up their case in the first place, he wouldn't be grasping for another 15 minutes. Just get lost, Darden. Simpson is where he belongs, so get over yourself.

Hell if they couldn't convict OJ on All that evidence, then it must have been their prosecutorial skills that were lacking. You could have presented that case in front of middle schoolers and they could see that he was guilty. The gloves looked like they didn't fit because OJ probably worked out to make his hands swell and he didn't want them to fit. Ever tried to dress a baby that don't want to be dressed, they can make the clothing seem not to fit themselves.
Okay sounds funny, but plausible.

Oj's long time manager Mike Gilbert claimed in his 2008 book "How i helped Oj get away with murder" claims oj was on an arthitis medication, and also that when oj didnt take the meds his arthritis would flare up. Mike Gilbert claims oj was told not to take the medication causing an arthitis flareup, in turn causing the gloves not to fit. Could be bs but who knows. Pretty entertaining book btw.
