This Had NOTHING To Do With Me!

The stormy nine-year relationship between O.J. Simpson and his brutally murdered ex-wife, Nicole Brown, was peppered with violent fights triggered by the football hero’s explosive fits of jealousy.

Insiders describe Nicole’s union with O.J. as a “marriage from hell” and say the two years since their divorce were filled with rows over getting back together and her dating other men – which often had to be broken up by the police.

It was a love-hate relationship. O.J., 46, couldn’t live with the 35-year-old blonde – and didn’t seem to be able to live without her, either… Continue reading This Had NOTHING To Do With Me!

An Electric Aberration?

The story was uniquely Californian, beginning with the discovery shortly after midnight on Monday, June 13, of two bodies on a blood-soaked sidewalk in affluent Brentwood and ending surreally four days later with the celebrity suspect traveling slowly along Los Angeles freeways, pointing a gun at his own head, as the police trailed in stately pursuit.

Only in California can crime conform so neatly to cinema.

When it was all over, a former sports hero, whose colossal likability had fueled a career in TV, movies and endorsements – who had acquired wealth and important friends and who moved through life with an effortless grace – was in jail, charged with first-degree murder in the slaying of his former wife… Continue reading An Electric Aberration?

One Monster. One Howling Tragedy.

It was terrible to watch and impossible not to.

When there was nothing new to report, the reporters interviewed each other, covering the coverage and defending themselves against accusations that they had already put Simpson on trial for murdering his ex-wife Nicole and her friend Ron Goldman before he had even been charged.

Hearsay was not just admissible; it was broadcast live…

TOO Little? TOO Late!

Like many cases of domestic violence, the story of O.J. and Nicole Brown Simpson’s stormy relationship fits a disturbing pattern – a pattern of official intervention that came too late and did too little.

As his horrified fans now know, Simpson was arrested for spousal battery after an incident at the couple’s Brentwood home on New Year’s Day, 1989.

The Simpson case is an American tragedy in every respect, but not merely because of O.J.’s celebrity and vast popularity.

A Model Victim of Abuse

Nicole was a typical battered wife – and O.J., 46, had a “classic case of obsession,” said Forward, author of the book “Obsessive Love: When It Hurts Too Much To Let Go.”

“After they separated, O.J. kept pursuing her,” Forward told The ENQUIRER… She was living in terror. he was always accusing her of seeing other men. If she went to a gas station to get gas for her car; O.J. would demand to know if she was seeing the gas station attendant and there’d be a big fight!

“When she was seeing me, Nicole still had a lot of loving feelings for O.J. She kept seeking the love of the man who beat her.

“Nicole would lie curled up on my couch in a fetal position, crying, with no make-up, torn jeans and stringy hair. She looked like a helpless waif… Continue reading A Model Victim of Abuse
