OJ Simpson in court

Disgraced NFL great O.J. Simpson claims he has brain cancer, and he wrote a letter begging President Obama for a pardon so he can die at home.

Simpson, 66, is serving a 33-year prison sentence in a Nevada prison for kidnapping, assault and robbery. Many believe Simpson is also paying the price for getting away with murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Lyle Goldman, in a fit of rage in 1994. Simpson was represented by a “dream team” of high profile lawyers including Johnnie Cochran and Robert Kardashian, Kim Kardashian’s late father.

A source told The National Enquirer Simpson is undergoing “secret” tests to confirm a brain tumor. Simpson reportedly has a history of diabetes and chronic high blood pressure.

“O.J. says his memory is slipping and he gets painful headaches and other symptoms,” a source told The Enquirer.

The source said prison doctors tell Simpson he has brain cancer, and he finally agreed to a battery of tests including an MRI and CAT Scan.

According to The National Enquirer, Simpson reached out to President Obama, begging him for a pardon so he can go home and die in peace. “I know my life is coming to an end,” he reportedly wrote in a letter to the president. “Please don’t let me die in prison.”
