Many were stunned to learn that disgraced NFL star O.J. Simpson will be released from prison as early as Oct. 1, 2017 — which has caused a lot of drama for himself and his loved ones. Now In Touch can exclusively reveal that David Cook — the lawyer who represents the late Ron Goldman’s father, Fred Goldman — would like to investigate some properties purchased by O.J.’s 29-year-old son, Justin, and 31-year-old daughter, Sydney.
The 13 St. Petersburgh, FL-based real estate investments equal roughly $500,000 and all but two of which were paid for in cash — which possibly should have been paid to the Goldmans. The Goldman family’s rep, Michael Wright, claims O.J. owes them around $60 million and has “never paid them a penny,” so Fred’s lawyer, David Cook, wants to make sure that none of this money Justin and Sydney spent was supposed to be paid to the Goldmans.

“[The kids’] loss is no greater than Fred’s, but Fred’s loss should be no greater than theirs,” David Cook exclusively tells In Touch, referring to the June 12, 1994, slaying of Justin and Sydney’s mother, Nicole Brown Simpson, and Fred’s son, Ron Goldman — which took place at her LA-based townhouse. While O.J. was acquitted of these criminal charges, he was deemed liable for their wrongful deaths in civil court.
Michael also tells the mag, “It’s been told to us that Simpson [previously] has done speaking engagements and appearances and signings for cash” and he “never paid a penny” of which he owes to the Goldmans. It was decided during his parole hearing on July 20, 2017, that “the Juice” will be released after serving time for an armed robbery which took place in 2007.
