O.J. Simpson Told Oprah That He Murdered Nicole In Self-Defense
Following the series finale of “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” Oprah stated that one of her greatest regrets was not getting O.J. Simpson to confess to murdering his former wife, Nicole Brown. Now it appears as though she may get what she was looking for.
Reports have indicated that Oprah has been in touch with Simpson as he serves a nine-year sentence for robbery and kidnapping at Nevada’s Lovelock Correctional Centre. She has been trying to get an interview with the former football star and it seems as though he is now ready to take part and admit that he did in fact murder Nicole on the night of June 12, 1994.
During a conversation with one of Oprah’s producers, Simpson said, “”Tell Oprah that yes, I did it. I killed Nicole, but it was in self-defence. She pulled a knife on me and I had to defend myself,” according to an inside source.
Simpson was reportedly enraged by the fact that Nicole was treating him poorly and having sex with other men at her condo while their kids were present. After an incident at a restaurant during the night of the murder, Simpson went home and worked himself into a rampage before returning to Nicole’s condo to give her “a piece of his mind.” The Daily Mail describes what followed:
When he arrived and no one answered at the house, he started pounding the door and shouting, according to the report.
The door allegedly then swung open and Nicole was standing there with a kitchen knife in her hand.
‘O.J. told the producer, “she was yelling go away! Go away! And waving the knife around at me. At one point she was lunging at me with the knife and I was just trying to talk to her. Nicole stepped out of the apartment – slashing the knife in the air.
‘”I was in such a rage that something just snapped. I couldn’t take her constant taunting of me with other men or her using drugs and drinking while my kids were living with her. I went beserk.
‘”Before I knew what I was doing I took the knife away from Nicole and started slashing at her. I cut her over and over again until she was lifeless. I was shocked at my own anger – I had killed the woman I had loved for so long..”‘
Simpson told the producer that he also killed Ron Goldman as an act of self-defense.
Should O.J. confess to the murders in an interview with Oprah, he will not suffer any legal consequences under the law of double jeopardy, which forbids a second trial following an acquittal.
If you thought the chase in his white Ford Bronco was must-see television, a televised confession with Oprah could quite possibly turn out to be the highest rated television event in history.
