The National Enquirer is reporting that O.J. Simpson, who’s currently serving time in prison for armed robbery, was recently beaten pretty badly by several other inmates. The former football star was attacked in the prison yard by a bunch of skinheads, and apparently was in such bad shape after the beating that he’s now afraid to leave his cell.
From The National Enquirer:
The battle erupted at Nevada’s Lovelock Correctional Center, where Simpson is serving at least nine years for his role in an armed confrontation with sports memorabilia dealers in Las Vegas in September 2007.
Unknown to the former NFL star, The Juice has been a marked man behind bars ever since white supremacists overheard him brag about his sexual conquests of beautiful white women.
“Unfortunately for O.J., a group of young skinhead punks were within earshot – and they were enraged,” Simpson’s former business partner Bruce Fromong told The ENQUIRER in an exclusive interview.
“They waited for a day when he would be in the exercise yard without his usual posse of black prisoners.
“O.J. was completely unprotected when one of the toughest of the skinheads – who’s in his mid-20s – jumped him.”
If you consider the source, this story could be nothing more than a dramatic piece of fan fiction, but TNE says the story is real and has been covered up by the prison staff out of embarrassment. O.J. is no longer staying in the prison’s infirmary, but he is afraid to interact with other inmates.
Of course my initial instinct after reading this story is to feel slightly bad for O.J. Getting beaten by a pack of skinheads sounds like the worst thing ever, but then I remembered that I’m pretty sure O.J. murdered the mother of his children and her boyfriend.
Do you think there’s any truth to these reports, and if so, how do you feel about it?
