O.J. Simpson is concerned Bill Cosby will be attacked by some “nut” in prison — and he would know, right? Juice spent 9 years behind bars in Nevada for kidnapping and armed robbery and warns that people like Cosby — convicted sex offenders…
O.J. Simpson knows a thing or two about murder.
He also knows a thing or two about being in prison.
Considering his depth of knowledge in these areas, The Juice spoke to TMZ on Tuesday about Bill Cosby; his incarceration; and what may happen to the disgraced comedian behind bars.
Indeed, Cosby was sentenced up to 10 years in jail yesterday afternoon, months after he was found guilty of drugging and raping a former Temple University employee named Andrea Constand.
Cosby was immediately handcuffed and hauled off to prison, according to various news outlets, stopping pretty much just to pose for a very sad mug shot.
Sad in terms of how he looked, we mean.
Most definitely not sad in terms of the outcome of this case.
We hope the rapist never lives freely in society again.
Simpson, for his part, is concerned that this hope will become a reality — but not because the 81-year will die from natural causes while in the clink.
But because someone will kill Cosby.
“The problem is the nature of the crime,” O.J. told TMZ while golfing in Nevada. “Rapists are frowned upon in prison.”
For good reason, some might say; which doesn’t mean we’re yearning for some inmate to shank Cosby or anything.
It just means this isn’t exactly a problem that seems worth thinking about for any period of time; we’re not about to lose sleep over the fate of Bill Cosby behind bars.
But we’re not O.J. Simpson, either.
“I’m sure there will be guys protecting him but they’re gonna have to put him in protective custody … because it takes one nut, ya know?” Simpson added.
O.J – who spent nine years in jail after being convicted of armed robbery (but zero years in jail for almost definitely murdering his ex-wife and her friend in 1994) – thinks Cosby ought to be placed under house arrest for the duration of his sentence.
But won’t this mean he gets to spend time with his loved ones?
And enjoy the relative freedom of life inside a mansion, as opposed to life within the confines of a cell and a state penitentiary?
Yes, but at least the man who very likely drugged and raped about 60 women will feel safe in that case, Simpson basically argues here.
Cosby was convicted in April on three counts of aggravated indecent assault, all stemming from a 2004 incident in which he drugged Constand at his Pennsylvania home and molested her.
In a five-page victim statement submitted to the judge, Constand said the following about this assault and its aftermath:
“The shame was overwhelming. Self-doubt and confusion kept me from turning to my family or friends as I normally did…
“I felt completely alone, unable to trust anyone, including myself…
“The psychological, emotional and financial bullying included a slander campaign in the media that left my entire family reeling in shock and disbelief.”
But Simpson doesn’t care much about all of that.
He’s just concerned about the man who drugged and raped her.
“With his health and his age and the nature of the crime, there’s not a warden in this country wants the responsibility of a Bill Cosby,” the former NFL running back told TMZ, concluding:
“I think they should let him do his time under house arrest.”

Now that Khloe has shared the first photos of True, fans are overjoyed to see the cute little one-month-old’s face.
But some are taking a closer look at the sweet little baby. They think that she might be new evidence that Khloe’s real dad is O.J. Simpson.
As you’re about to see, Khloe has actually responded.
Taking to Instagram comments, one person who believes the O.J. paternity conspiracy theory decided that True’s appearance confirms what people have been saying for years.
What’s more, this person decided to write it out where Khloe might potentially see it.
“Her daughter is black which proves that O.J. Simpson is [Khloe’s] dad.”
This comment is followed by a somewhat ambiguous, wide-eyed emoji.
The conspiracy theory that O.J. Simpson was secretly Khloe’s father is not uncommon and has been plaguing her and her family for years.
What makes this comment unusual, however, is that Khloe actually saw fit to respond to it.
Take a look:
Khloe actually took the time to respond to this, writing:
“I mean … her dad is black, silly.”
This reply might actually be the funniest think that Khloe has ever said.
“That’s why she’s black, babe.”
Is the message a little condescending?
Is that fair, given the context?
Tristan Thompson is black. True’s grandfather — who is, by the way, Robert Kardashian — is not responsible for her skin tone.
O.J. Simpson was very good friends with Robert Kardashian back before, you know, O.J. was arrested for the brutal murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
Though Robert was part of the “dream team” that helped O.J. get acquitted, the two were never the same after that.
Kris Jenner, who by this point was already divorced from Robert and married to Caitlyn Jenner back before she publicly transitioned, had been good friends with Nicole.
As Khloe grew to be taller and bigger-boned (literally bigger-boned) than her sisters, some wondered if O.J. had fathered her with his best friend’s wife, long before Nicole Brown’s death.
In reality, of course, Khloe is only 5-foot-10. She only looks “tall” because so many people in her family are comically short. Kendall is her height, too.
O.J. is not Khloe’s dad. And O.J. is not True’s grandpa.
Though Khloe has long been plagued by this rumor, True is not the only Kardashian baby whose skin tone apparently threw fans for a loop.
Earlier this month, some of Kylie’s fans began to believe that Kylie’s hunky bodyguard was her real baby daddy.
Why? Because Stormi’s skin isn’t especially dark, basically. But the real answer was because Kylie living a happy life as a young mother is boring, and a lot of people thirst after her bodyguard.
It seems that some people are confused about interracial babies and their skin tones, so here’s a very, very simple primer.
Mixed babies can have light skin or dark skin, because human genetics are basically self-randomizing. Blame it on meiosis and those pesky spindle fibers.
We know that it’s way more interesting for people to believe that everyone is constantly cheating at all times.
But life isn’t a soap opera. Otherwise, the world would have a lot more doppelgangers.
Only, like, half of all people in relationships are cheating. Just because Tristan did doesn’t mean that Kris or Kylie did, too.
Sometimes, the truth is less interesting than what people like to imagine.
We will say this — that person may have been mocking the theory. That emoji may have been an eyeroll.
Khloe may have slammed the wrong commenter.
Back in March, we reported on the death of Tom Scotto, a longtime confidant of O.J. Simpson’s who passed away at the age of 56 due to complications from pneumonia.
Now, Radar Online is reporting that Scotto used his last breaths to make a chilling revelation about his infamous friend.
Journalist Allison Kugel says she spoke to Scotto moments before his death and was shocked by what she learned about one of the most notorious murder mysteries of the 20th century:
“In his own words, Tom told me, ‘O.J. went berserk, ran to his car, got the knife and came back,’” says Kugel, who was writing a book about Simpson at the time.
“Tom said, ‘After O.J. did Nicole, he had no choice but to take care of Goldman.’”
Kugel goes on to reveal that O.J.’s son, Jason Simpson, arrived on the scene unexpectedly on the night of the murders.
“Tom said Jason showed up afterward,” Kugel says.
“But O.J. told Jason, ‘Get the f–k out of here!’ because ‘there was no cleaning [the murder] up.’”
As for why the younger Simpson visited his stepmother’s home that night, Scotto says Jason had an inkling that “something bad was going to go on.”
Kugel divulges that she’s inclined to believe Scotto in large part because of the manner in which he made his confession:
“[Scotto] didn’t come out right away and it didn’t come out in a casual manner,” Kugel tells Radar.
“It was more like a serious confidential conversation, and Tom said O.J. cried several times. He said, ‘O.J. cried more than once.’”
As for whether or not there might be any legal ramifications for Jason Simpson in light of this new information, legal expert Peter Gleason says it’s possible, but unlikely.
“If police were to re-open the investigation, this kid could be subject to questioning,” Gleason tells Radar.
Interestingly, this is not the first time that insiders have claimed Jason was present at the murder scene.
Former Simpson bodyguard Miguel Perreira once claimed that an intoxicated O.J. claimed that Jason instigated the violence that night by attacking Goldman.
O.J., of course, was acquitted of the murders in one of the most famous trials of all time, but was later arrested on robbery charges.
Simpson was released from prison in October of 2017 after serving 9 years behind bars.
The life of O.J. Simpson has taken another strange turn today.
Simpson’s former best friend and longtime confidante Tom Scotto has passed away at the age of 56.
To understand just how bizarre Simpson and Scotto’s relationship was, we need only to look at the last few months of both men’s lives.
In October of 2017 Simpson was released from prison on robbery charges.
At the time of his release, Scotto offered to allow Simpson to move into his palatial home in Naples, Florida.
Scotto publicly rescinded the offer shortly thereafter, alleging that he recently learned Simpson had slept with his then-wife in 2007.
Shortly after that, Scotto was hospitalized due to complications from pneumonia.
Just nine days ago, Scotto spoke with Radar Online and informed the outlet that his health was on the upswing.
He claimed was soon to be moved out of the intensive care unit with the eventual goal of returning home.
Two days later, however, Scotto signed a “do not resuscitate” order after his health took yet another turn for the worse.
Today, family and friends were shocked by the new that Scotto had passed away.
“Tom Scotto died of the broken heart because O.J. slept with the man’s wife!” a source close both Scotto and Simpson tells Radar.
“O.J. only cares about himself but with Scotto’s death, he’s going to feel like sh-t!”
“It’s desperately sad Tom and O.J. didn’t settle their differences before he died, but now everyone’s worried what O.J. might do. He can behave all crazy and has an awful temper,” says a second source.
The tipster included a chilling (thought likely apocryphal) account of Scotto’s final moments:
“Scotto’s last words were ‘O.J. took everything away from me and I don’t want to live anymore,'” the insider alleges.
Obviously there’s no way to confirm that particular claim, but in his final interview – just days before his death – Scotto made his contempt for Simpson abundantly clear:
“After everything I did for O.J., that was complete betrayal,” Scotto said of the allegation that Simpson slept with his ex-wife.
“I was a brother to him.”
O.J. Simpson insists his “If I Did It” TV special was NOT a confession to murder — and says the people on the show were all “a bunch of haters.” Simpson gave his first sit-down interview since leaving prison to the Buffalo News — and gave his own…
O.J. Simpson may or may not be Khloe Kardashian’s father.
And he may or may not have murdered ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman.
But the former Heisman Trophy winner and convicted armed robber was definitely friends with Donald Trump back in the day.
The sadly-not-yet-expired Juice freely admits to this relationship in an extensive new interview with The Buffalo News.
Many years ago, Trump actually thought about purchasing the Buffalo Bills, the professional football team for which Simpson played a majority of his career.
The likely murderer attended Trump’s December 1993 wedding to Marla Maples at the Plaza Hotel in Atlantic City. The two know each other well.
“The one thing I can say about The Donald is The Donald is fun,” Simpson says, using a word to describe the President that literally not a single registered voter nowadays would use.
Simpson then continued as follows:
“For a dude – and I consider myself a dude – Donald is a man’s man. He would be a fun guy. But that’s hanging out. … If the Bills weren’t winning, it would have been tough [to have him as an owner].”
Right, you know.
Because Donald Trump is simply can’t handle losing, people.
Simpson does want to make it clear, however:
Just because he’s a fan of Donald Trump does NOT mean he’d have voted for him as President of the United States.
“Probably not,” O.J. said when asked this exact question.
And why not?
“I only know two of my friends I’d vote to be president. Some of my best, best besties I would not vote to be president. That has no bearing on it, you know?”
If it makes Al Cowlings feel any better, we’re sure Simpson would vote him to be his chaffeur.
Elsewhere in this same newspaper profile, Simpson says he got everyone in prison excited about playing fantasy football…
… and he said Colin Kaepernick should respect the flag.(
(Kaepernick, of course, famously refused to stand for the national anthem back in August of 2016, saying he was protesting inequality in America. He was not signed by any NFL teams last season.)
“I think Colin made a mistake,” Simpson told The Buffalo News, speaking as someone who knows all about mistakes and adding:
“I really appreciate what he was trying to say. I thought he made a bad choice in attacking the flag.”
And why is that?
“I grew up at a time when deacons were in the KKK,” Simpson explained.
“I don’t disrespect the Bible because of those guys. The flag shouldn’t be disrespected because of what cops do. The flag represents what we want America to be.”
We don’t have time to delve into the issue here, but Kaepernick and others who joined his protest have made it clear time and again that they were never protesting the flag.
They were protesting how African-Americans are treated in this country.
“I’m a firm believer of doing what you think is right, but I would always stand for the flag,” Simpson concluded on this topic.
But you’d also kill an ex-wife out of homicidal rage, Juice, so you’ll forgive us for not ceding the moral ground to you on this subject.
