Who was OJ Simpson?

Once considered one of America’s greatest athletes, OJ Simpson will always be linked to the brutal murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson.

The former Buffalo Bills star reinvented himself as an actor after his NFL career ended, but everything fell apart when he was accused of killing Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman in 1994.

He was acquitted of the murders in what was called the «trial of the century.»

However, the Naked Gun star, who died on Wednesday at the age of 76, found himself behind bars 12 years later, when he was sentenced to nine years in prison for armed robbery.

He lived on an $8500 monthly pension from the NFL and was said to have made money by signing sports memorabilia for around $375 a piece.

However, in recent years he has barely been seen publicly, posting the occasional photo of himself playing golf on social media.

One of OJ Simpson’s last photographs was taken last month and showed him using a cane to walk after he was diagnosed with prostate cancer, according to Page 6.

Simpson’s life was a roller coaster, full of ups and downs from the beginning.

As he battled cancer, Simpson took refuge in a luxurious five-bedroom house worth $1.5 million. He has lived there since he was released from prison in 2017.

OJ Simpson was rejected by many friends after being acquitted of double murder in one of the first televised trials. The ex player found solace in the home of his close friend James Barnett.

They met when wealthy businessman Barnett hired him for a motivational speech decades ago.

The palatial property near the Las Vegas Strip is located within a gated community with its own pool and golf course where Simpson, nicknamed The Juice, regularly played a round.

The mansion is a far cry from the 125 square foot cell with only a bunk toilet and sink. Where OJ spent nine years locked up in the Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada.

When he was released early for good behavior in 2017, his friends said he enjoyed sumptuous dinners.

He even appeared in a photo resting by the pool and enjoying the occasional night out in Las Vegas, according to The Sun.

Far from keeping a low profile, OJ was seen in hotels and even at a Las Vegas Golden Knights hockey game.
