As if getting heckled during an interview wasn't bad enough for OJ Simpson, there is more bad news. In fact, there are all sorts of OJ stories floating around right now. To recap:
You're With Me, Killer: Now this one is just too strange. The fat kid from the upcoming movie SuperBad (AKA, Jonah Hill) is saying that OJ stole a woman from him at a nightclub in Miami. In Jonah's own words:
"All of a sudden O.J. Simpson walks by - in the nightclub. She looks at O.J., then she looks back at me and she says, 'Peace,' and then walks away and starts dancing with O.J. "He's famous for killing women and their friends! That's how pathetic I am. A night with O.J. and possibly getting murdered is better than some sort of sexual experience with me."
This is no game: The Juice's likeness is featured in the new video game All-Pro Football 2K8, which evidently does not sit well with the family of Ron Goldman on a number of levels. In fact, they have gone to court over it in connection to their 1994 wrongful death suit and won:
"Under the order issued by Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Gerald Rosenberg, any earnings to Simpson that "have been paid, are due or may be due in the future" for use of his image and likeness in the video game must be turned over to the Goldman estate.
Moreover, Simpson was ordered to turn over copies of his Take-Two contract and related documents, as well as any other financial deals he has yet to disclose."
The ruling does not however, prevent anyone who owns the game from putting OJ on the team named "The Assassins" whose mascot is "a hooded figure who makes stabbing motions with a large knife in the end zone when the Assassins score". You know Take Two if you really want to put a dent in Madden's market dominance you might try not turning your game into a PR nightmare. I hear it helps.
He did it!!!: No, I'm not talking about the murders, I'm talking about the aborted book "If I Did It". OJ had tried to say that he was just a reluctant participant in the entire enterprise, but the ghostwriter of the book is speaking out and saying OJ had the idea in the first place:
"OJ read the book, his book, several times. I made every change he asked for, and he signed off on it," Fenjves, a Hollywood screenwriter told Reuters.
"The whole book, the whole idea for a book, originated with OJ Simpson and a couple of his handlers," he said."
Like I said. Not a good week for the Juice.
