OJ Simpson’s controversial trial captivated the world before he was acquitted. The book “If I Did It: Confessions of the Killer” has remained popular since its release in 2007.

The book follows a hypothetical description of the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, who were found stabbed to death on June 12, 1994. Simpson was tried for murder but was ultimately acquitted after nine months, in what became known as the “trial of the century.”

While screenwriter Pablo Fenjves wrote the book based on discussions with Simpson, Simpson’s former manager, Norman Pardo, claimed that Simpson was not involved in writing it.

The Goldmans later published a new edition of the book in 2007, which included essays from the Goldman family and O.J.’s ghostwriter. Simpson reportedly accepted $600,000 for the book and an interview, which he referred to as “blood money.” He claimed that he only agreed to the book to pay his bills and support his children financially.

On April 11, 2024, Simpson passed away at the age of 76 after battling cancer. His family announced his death, stating that he was surrounded by his children and grandchildren in Las Vegas. Despite rumors of being in a hospice in February, Simpson denied these claims on social media.
