O.J. Simpson is showing off his new life in Las Vegas nearly two years since his release from prison — and 25 years since the death of his ex-wife.
In exclusive photos for The Associated Press, Simpson posed in his home office, which features football souvenirs and books by thriller authors like John Grisham and Lee Child.
In another photo, he's in the garden of his new home in Vegas, grinning broadly and wearing a floral shirt.
Just two days before the 25th anniversary of the murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, Simpson told the AP that the slayings are "the subject I will never revisit again."
"We don't need to go back and relive the worst day of our lives," he said. "My family and I have moved on to what we call the 'no negative zone.' We focus on the positives."
Inside Edition spoke to Simpson’s friend Bruce Fromong, who described a typical day for the disgraced football legend, saying, “He’s got a favorite cigar grotto that he likes to go to. He's got his own locker there. He likes to be a regular person.”
Simpson now lives in a gated community. It had been widely expected that he'd return to Florida, where two of his children live. But he revealed to the AP that his friends persuaded him to stay in Vegas, and he said he doesn't regret the decision. Simpson said he's visited Florida "two or three times to see the kids and my old buddies."
But home is now Vegas, which he described as "a town I’ve learned to love."
Now pushing 72, Simpson said he plays golf just about every day with "retired guys."
“He's not living a privileged life; this is a guy who used to make $10-15 million a year. Now he makes $350 — maybe — $400,000, which sounds like a lot to a lot of people but when you consider what his income used to be and what it is now,” Fromong told Inside Edition.
