Nearly 14 years after O.J. Simpson was charged with the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman, new details are emerging thanks to a newly surfaced interview with the disgraced football star. And it turns out, O.J. reportedly had an accomplice on that infamous night.
According to TMZ, the 70-year-old revealed this new information in a interview promoting his controversial memoir, If I Did It: Confessions of a Killer — and it will be airing on Sunday, March 11 on Fox. In the tell-all, O.J. reportedly speaks in the third-person as he details the murders, and basically confesses to the crimes.
He not only allegedly says he brought a friend to “scare the s–t” out of his ex-wife, but goes on to describe how he saw Nicole through the window and candles burning and assumed she was expecting a man. That’s when Ron showed up with glasses her mom left at the restaurant he was working at and O.J. reportedly “blacked out” and came to covered in blood. WTF.
The interview was conducted by book publisher Judith Regan but was shelved due to extreme pressure. O.J. was acquitted of the murders in a 1995 trial — but nearly one decade later wrote his book that hypothetically explored his failed marriage and the deaths that captured America’s morbid curiosity.
In the book, which was published by the Goldman family after being awarded rights by a Florida bankruptcy court, O.J. admits he was doing his best to stay away from Nicole before her murder. “I wasn’t going to go anywhere near that woman. I was sick and tired of her s—. If she wanted to take herself down, that was one thing. But I wasn’t going to let her take me down with her,” he wrote. However, when he heard some scandalous details of a recent trip she took to Mexico with a girlfriend he became furious and went to confront the blonde beauty with his friend “Charlie,” taking a knife and those infamous gloves with him. The rest is history.
