The pair’s marriage hit some rocks in 1989, when O. pleaded no contest to a charge of spousal abuse, and was sentenced to community service, probation and fines. Their bodies were found outside of her home in the early hours of June 13. The LAPD issued an all-points bulletin when he had failed to surrender himself by 2 p.m. The prosecution found DNA from Simpson and both victims on the gloves. In December 2008, Simpson was found guilty of 10 charges related to a gunpoint robbery at the Palace Station hotel in Las Vegas.

Simpson at his word when he writes that "Nicole was on the fast track to hell, and she was determined to take me and the kids with her," is like taking Humbert Humbert at his word when he describes as a romantic idyll his molestation of 12-year-old Dolores Haze. goes clubbing with friends and runs into Nicole and two woman friends, one of whom asks jokingly, "[A]re you stalking your estranged wife? But the ghostwriter, Pablo Fenjves, made clear to me in an interview around the same time that he'd added no embellishments to what O. told him ("I'm not in the habit of making things up in my books"). (The term, purportedly from comic opera, is an apparent invention by novelist Robertson Davies, but it's too useful to pass up.)

Simpson’s fame was bolstered by an acting career, which kept him in the public eye even after he retired from football in 1979. What was his relationship with Nicole Brown Simpson?

The sports celeb was already father to Arnelle L., Jason L. Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, waiter Ronald Goldman, were stabbed to death on June 12, 1994. Also, a video surfaced in which Mark Fuhrman, a cop who helped collect much of the physical evidence, made racist remarks and dropped the n-word multiple times.

After being questioned days earlier, Simpson was under orders to turn himself in to the police on the morning of June 17. Fuhrman was later charged with perjury for claiming that he had not used the slur within 10 years of the trial.
