OJ Simpson Reportedly Confessed to Murders to Book Publisher

OJ Simpson Reportedly Confessed to Murders to Book Publisher

In 1995, Simpson was acquitted of both murders after a lengthy and highly publicized trial.

Simpson said "hypothetically" (of course) he and his (imaginary) "friend" Charlie drove to Nicole's house with a cap, gloves, and a knife ("for the crazies", he said) under the seat of the auto, which they parked in an alley.

The book was later pulled by the publisher but was eventually released in 2007 by Goldman's family, with the new title If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer.

AFP has seen the original raw footage of the interview, in which Regan asks Simpson - "knowing that it's hypothetical" - to walk her through what "might have happened" on the night of the murders. Regan recently revealed that Simpson's lawyer had confessed to his client's involvement around the time of the original interview during a conversation over the phone.

He says he saw Kanye on TV wearing the t-shirt and had words for him.

Over the course of this two-hour special, though, we hear a lot more from O.J. Simpson, who has plenty to say about his murdered ex-wife - most of it unflattering.

It remains to be seen exactly which kinds of shows the Obamas will deliver, as well as the format and episode length and number. Netflix declined to comment, and representatives for the Obamas did not immediately respond to request for comment.

Simpson was subsequently found liable for the deaths in a 1997 civil suit and ordered to pay damages totaling $33.5 million. He was released on parole in October 2017 after serving nine years.

The pair entered the back gate, he adds, where Simpson got into a shouting match with Goldman, who had just arrived, and Brown Simpson, who had come outside. However, the book was written under the guise of fiction to protect Simpson's children. In the show, Regan says O.J.'s lawyer said her book couldn't be called "I Did It" because O.J. wanted to hide the fact that he murdered his wife from their two young children.

Moments later, "this guy kind of got into a karate thing, and I said, 'Well, you think you can kick my (expletive)?' " Simpson continues.

Simpson said, "I think Charlie had followed [Goldman] in, and he brought the knife". The special's executive producer, Terence Wrong, says Darden's "theory is that Charlie is OJ's alter ego". Officials never discovered who murdered them.

Giving domestic violence expert Rita Smith the opportunity to discuss the dynamics of an abusive relationship - "Subtle and not-so-subtle forms of violence are used [by abusers] to keep control over their victim", she says of the 1984 baseball incident - is time well spent, but that's one sound bite.

"Everything was covered, would have been covered in blood. We've all seen the grisly pictures after", he says. "It was terrible. It was absolutely disgusting".
