O.J. became famous back in the 1990s when he stood trial for the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman but was acquitted.

In February, the former NFL star dismissed reports he had been placed in hospice care after battling prostate cancer.

He said in a video: “Hey X world, hospice? Hospice? You’re talking about hospice? No, I’m not even in the hospital. I don’t know who put that out there.

“In any event, I’m hosting a ton of friends for the Super Bowl here in Las Vegas, and all is well. So hey guys, take care, and have a good Super Bowl weekend.”


On December 5, 2008, O.J. was sentenced to 33 years in prison on a variety of charges including armed robbery and kidnapping, with eligibility for parole in nine years.

On July 20, 2017, he was granted parole, and was freed three months later and in December 2021, he was granted early discharge from parole.

O.J. had been residing in a gated community in Las Vegas city since his release.
