At his arraignment on July 22, 1994, O.J. Simpson — who stood accused of the brutal slayings of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, 35, and Ron Goldman, 25 — was asked how he pleaded. The former NFL star looked at the judge and responded clearly: “Absolutely 100 percent not guilty.” The jury eventually agreed, acquitting him of the murders in a 1995 verdict that sent shock waves across the country.
But more than a decade later, in a series of secret 2006 meetings in Miami, O.J. told a completely different story, which In Touch can now reveal.
The fallen star, who was found liable for Nicole’s and Ron’s deaths in a 1997 civil trial and was ordered to pay the Brown and Goldman families $33.5 million in damages, had agreed to tell his side of the story in a book titled, If I Did It, with the proceeds ostensibly going to his kids, according to writer Pablo Fenjves.
And in the book’s chilling, supposedly hypothetical narrative — as well as a “lost” interview with publisher Judith Regan that was taped for Fox in 2006 and will finally air on the network on March 11 — O.J. described Nicole’s and Ron’s deaths in shocking detail.
