The story isn’t bigger than we’d expect it to be, primarily because there’s little lingering doubt regarding the question of whether Hall of Fame running back O.J. Simpson killed his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman in June 1994.
A report recently emerged that Simpson confessed to killing the pair in an interview with Oprah Winfrey on her OWN network. Per the report, Simpson claimed he was acting in self-defense. (It’s now known as the Michi Marshall defense.)
An Oprah spokesperson said the report isn’t true.
Recently, Oprah said that she has a dream of Simpson confessing the crimes to her. And that possibly was the genesis for the false report.
As to Oprah’s dreams, we’d recommend that she aim a little higher. Then again, after getting a billion or so in the bank, maybe dreams become far more mundane.
