According to The National Enquirer OJ Simpson allegedly confessed to Oprah that he did indeed kill his wife, Nicole Brown in 1994. If it’s true, it’s basically the confession of the century.
OJ stood trial for the murders in the highly public case. OJ was found not guilty by the jury on Oct. 3 1995 on live T.V. by more than half of the U.S. population. OJ’s innocence was short-lived, however, in 1997 a civil jury in Santa Monica found him liable for ‘wrongful death and battery’ agaisnt Ronald Goldman, Brown’s friend who was found dead next to her outside of her apartment in 1994. Simpson was ordered to pay $33,500,000 in damages to Goldman’s family.
In 2008, Simpson was sentenced to 33 years in prison after being convicted of robbery, criminal conspiracy, assault, kidnapping and suing a deadly weapon.
It hasn’t been confirmed if OJ did confess to Oprah but either way, Oprah will air an interview with Simpson where we’ll find out.
UPDATE: An Oprah Winfrey representative has denied the veracity a report from the National Enquirer that Simpson confessed from prison to murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson, according to the Hollywood Reporters. “That’s not true,” the rep said.
