One Year After Prison Release, O.J. Simpson Enjoying Golf and Taking Selfies
It was thought that he would be treated as a pariah, but wherever Simpson goes, fans want to take photos with him.
O.J. Simpson has been out of prison for a year and living comfortably in Las Vegas.
The disgraced football icon spends most of his time the same way, playing golf about four to five times a week at the Arroyo Golf Club.
If anyone thought Simpson would be treated like a pariah after prison, they were wrong. Everywhere he goes, people want selfies with him.
The 71-year-old is living the life of an active wealthy retiree in a Las Vegas gated community, but he's not hiding out. He has been spotted around town at hotels and even a Las Vegas Golden Knights hockey game.
"He is a senior citizen; he is a 71-year-old man," Simpson's attorney, Malcolm LaVergne, told Inside Edition. "He is going to do all of the things we said he was going to do, which is golf, spend time with his family and friends."
Simpson travels around town with his own breathalyzer, according to reports. He's not allowed to exceed a certain blood alcohol level or he could be sent back to prison. It's believed that he enjoys one martini a day.
Simpson even got tricked into participating in an interview with Sacha Baron Cohen for his Showtime series, "Who Is America?"
In the bit, the British comedian, under the guise of an Italian TV host, tried to get Simpson to confess to killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, in 1994.
The comedian was able to get a rise out of Simpson after saying that a friend of his wanted to know what happened to his ex-wife.
"Well, first off, she wasn’t my wife," Simpson explained. "We had been divorced; we had been separated for two years."
"We want you to be 100-percent truthful how you got away with it," Cohen asks.
"Hey, hey, hey — I didn’t get away with nothing," Simpson snapped back. "I didn’t kill nobody!"
O.J. Simpson was acquitted of murder in the death of Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ronald Goldman, in 1995.
In 2008, he was convicted of 12 charges, including kidnapping and armed robbery, and sentenced to 33 years in prison. But in 2017, he was released after serving nine years in Nevada's Lovelock Correctional Center.
His parole period ends in 2022.
The conditions for Simpson’s parole include no association with convicted felons, no possession of a firearm and mandatory submission to random drug tests.
