O.J. Simpson, 70-year-old former NFL running back, has become a very well-known name following his professional football career and the infamous murder trial in 1995. Simpson was previously accused of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her good friend Ron Goldman. He was found not guilty on both counts of murder.
However, in 2007, he was arrested in Las Vegas after being involved in a kidnapping and armed robbery. He was reportedly attempting to retrieve some of his property, including sports memorabilia, but was sentenced 9 to 33 years in prison under the charges in 2008.
In July of 2017, the former football star was granted parole during a public court hearing that received a massive amount of media attention, much like the 1995 murder trial. After spending 9 years in prison, Simpson was officially released at the beginning of October.
Despite him previously being acquitted on two murder counts, many to this day, still have reason to believe he actually committed the crime. Among those who believe he is guilty including Kris and Caitlyn (Bruce) Jenner, who used to be in Nicole and O.J.'s circle.
In a recent media appearance, Caitlyn Jenner claimed that Nicole previously told Kris, "[Simpson] says he's going to kill me and get away with it because he's OJ Simpson." Jenner added, “We pretty much knew [Simpson] was guilty, right from the beginning, but the whole thing was: 'Is he going to get away with it?'"
After Jenner’s comments, Simpson was asked by a TMZ reporter, “Did you see the new Caitlyn exurbs?”
Simpson responded with a “subtle” shot at Jenner’s change of gender, “I don’t know Caitlyn. I never met Caitlyn. As far as Bruce is concerned, I really didn’t know him that well. If he wants to choose to live his life out as an old lady instead of an old man, [he could] live longer. He might be onto something,” the former ex-football star commented jokingly.
