If I did it…

Life-1-4The infamous OJ Simpson special that was filmed back in 2006 will finally premiere this Sunday, and a new preview shows the beginning of the football player confessing to murder.


In a clip obtained by TMZ, Simpson discusses what hypothetically happened on the night that Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman were murdered, claiming that the killer’s friend Charlie had told him about some things going on over at Nicole’s home. 


He then begins to speak in first person when talking about the killer, saying: ‘And I remember thinking whatever is going on over there has got to stop.’ 


The clip then cuts out, with the rest airing on Sunday during OJ: The Lost Confession in a match-up with former Fox juggernaut American Idol, which is making its debut on ABC in the same time slot. 


The disgraced football star has been shacking up at a friend’s $1.8 million home in Las Vegas ever since being released from prison, which is located in a private gated community just miles from The Strip.


Simpson – whose penchant for the high life appears to have remained intact despite his time in the middle of the desert – has kept a relatively low profile at the 5,000 square-foot property which boasts 5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, a backyard putting green and pool for the next few months as he sorts out his next move.


It is a drastic shift for Simpson, who has spent most of the past decade cohabiting a 125 square-foot cell that came with nothing more than a bunk bed, toilet and sink. He is adjusting well however, and has been spotted putting, hanging by the pool and entertaining his daughter Arnelle at the property as if he had lived there for years these past few weeks.

 

 

Simpson reportedly reveals that after the killer and Charlie arrive at Nicole’s home they see candles in the window as a man approaches.


Life-1-2Simpson spent the first few weeks of his release focusing on his three favorite things according to multiple people close to the former football star – family, friends and golf. 


It is unclear how much Simpson was paid for this interview in 2006 with Judith Regan, who was his publisher at the time and set to release his book If I Did It. In another preview shown last week, Simpson says: ‘Forget everything you think you know about that night, because I know the facts better than anyone. This is one story the whole world got wrong.’ 


Simpson reportedly reveals that after the killer and Charlie arrive at Nicole’s home they see candles in the window as a man approaches. Nicole then comes to the door and the killer blacks out, and when he comes to is covered in blood.  The initial release of the show was halted back in 2006 due to money owed by Simpson in a civil suit and public outcry. 


The former football star was ordered to pay the Goldmans $33.5million by a civil court jury shortly after he was acquitted of double murder, but in the two decades since that verdict was handed down the family have received no money from Simpson. 


His disregard for the judgment came back to haunt him however after his plans to publish his book about the murders was revealed back in 2006, with the special set to air in conjunction with the book’s debut. 


The rights to the book were instead awarded to the Goldmans by a Florida bankruptcy court a year later, and they went on to sell the book under the title If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer.
