Jeanie Buss has a very shady side to her.
Buss, president of the Lakers, went to “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” this week and spoke on a little-known “weirdest thing” that happened during her tenure at the franchise, and all roads led to O.J. Simpson.
It happened right after the former NFL running back was acquitted on murder charges.
“What’s the weirdest thing that’s happened at a Lakers game you’ve been to?” guest host Desus Nice asked Buss.
“Umm, you know, I guess the weirdest thing was right after O.J. Simpson was acquitted, he…”
“He was coming to a game and I had to talk to the staff and say, ‘You know what? He’s just like anybody else who has a ticket. We have to show him, you know, respect and make sure he’s treated like any other paying guest.’
“So he came to a game, but he illegally parked at the Forum,” Buss said. “So his car was towed. So, you know, you just can’t get away with everything, right?”
O.J. Simpson has remained one of the most polarizing people on this planet since his October 1995 acquittal of the murder charges of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.
He may have gotten away with that, but a civil trial found him liable for their deaths, and was ordered to pay $33.5 million in damages to the families.
His time to be in prison would soon come in 2008 when he spent nine years behind bars after being convicted of armed robbery in Las Vegas. He was eventually granted an early release in 2017 for good behavior.
He now lives in the Vegas area, created a popular Twitter account, and just plays golf.
