Orenthal James Simpson, aka “OJ”, has been diagnosed with prostate cancer and is undergoing chemotherapy treatment.
According to Local 10 News, a source confirmed that Simpson was undergoing chemotherapy for prostate cancer.
Simpson, 76, posted a video clip on social media that shows him laughing in his car in Las Vegas, Nevada.
He denied reports that he was in hospice care.
Simpson announced on Twitter/X on Friday that he is not in hospice amid reports that he was frail and sickly.
He said he plans to host “a ton of friends” for the Super Bowl on Sunday.
Simpson did not comment on the Local 10 News report that he is undergoing cancer treatment.
Simpson is fully vaccinated. He received his first MRNA vaccine in January 2021.
“Get your shot. I got mine!!!” he tweeted. He shared a photo of himself receiving the injection.
On June 17, 1994, the Pro Football Hall of Fame running back was charged with the brutal murders of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ronald Goldman.
TV stations interrupted the 1994 NBA Finals to broadcast live coverage of the slow-speed pursuit of Simpson in a white 1993 Ford Bronco SUV.
The Bronco was driven by Simpson’s friend Allen “A.C.” Cowlings.
The former NFL star was acquitted of the murders in the “Trial of the Century” in 1995.
A jury awarded the Goldman family $33.5 million in damages but they have not received a dime from Simpson.
According to DailyMail.com, the judgement has grown to over $70 million.
In 2008, Simpson was convicted of an armed robbery at a Las Vegas hotel involving his own sports memorabilia.
He was released from prison early in 2017 for good behavior.
