It’s safe to say that O.J. Simpson’s daughter Sydney looks a lot different in 2017 than she did when she was first in the spotlight. The now 31-year-old was just eight years old when her mother Nicole Brown Simpson was murdered in 1994. And since the tragic and highly publicized trial, of which her father was the main focus, ended, she’s laid pretty low. But now with her boyfriend Robert Blackmon, 28, participating in the local politics of St. Petersburg, FL and her father's early release from prison, we think she might be put back in the spotlight again. Watch the video below to see Sydney now!
O.J., 70, recently landed himself in the hot seat, as he was approved for early release back in July. And while Sydney was nowhere to be seen at the parole hearing, the former football player’s daughter from another marriage, Arnelle Simpson, took the stand to defend her dad.
"This has been hard, I'm going to be honest. This has been really, truly hard,” she said at the hearing. "There is no right or wrong way to explain how to handle this, but we do know that — I know that — he is remorseful. He truly is remorseful and we just want him to come home so that we can move forward for us, quietly, but to move forward."
The disgraced football player was released from prison in the early hours of Oct. 1 and is now a free man. The Juice served nine years in prison on charges unrelated to the murder of Sydney's mom. The charges that led to his imprisonment were from an armed robbery of a memorabilia dealer in Las Vegas.
