O.J. Simpson was acquitted of murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, but the disgraced NFL player allegedly confessed to his agent that he did it! Mike Gilbert claims O.J. admitted to killing them, and that ‘the Juice’ tried to commit suicide before turning himself into the police!
O.J. Simpson, 68, and his famous 1994 murder trial is on everyone’s mind, thanks to American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson. As a new generation is being introduced to the “Trial of the Century,” O.J.’s longtime friend and former agent, Mike Gilbert, claims that O.J. admitted to killing both Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman!
“O.J. told me he did it,” Mike claims, according to RadarOnline. Mike, the author of How I Helped O.J. Get Away with Murder: The Shocking Inside Story of Violence, Loyalty, Regret and Remorse, told Radar that O.J. allegedly opened up and admitted that he actually committed the heinous double-homicide.
The former NFL-star supposedly couldn’t live with what he had done, according to Mike. On June 17, 1994, O.J. was supposed to turn himself into the Los Angeles Police Department. On that day, his friend and lawyer, Robert Kardashian, read a letter from O.J. at a press conference that hinted the Juice was planning to commit suicide. Mike tells Radar that exactly was O.J.’s initial plan.
“O.J. was going to kill himself on Nicole’s grave,” he tells Radar. “But when he snuck out of the house with Al Cowlings and went to her grave, there were cops there guarding the gravesite. So that’s when the infamous Bronco down the freeway chase happened.” The chase ended up in O.J.’s LA home, where he finally surrendered to the police.
Mile claims that O.J. still attempted to end his life. “He told me that while he was sitting in the car he was planning to kill himself,” Mike told Radar. “So he pulled the trigger on the gun but it didn’t go off.” This failed-suicide attempt and televised car chase would both lead to the “Trial of the Century.” You can watch American Crime Story, plus thousands of movies and shows anytime, by signing up to Amazon Prime for free.
While Mike claims he “helped O.J. get away with murder,” he wasn’t the only person who helped out the Juice. Johnnie Cochran, an incredible legal talent, was one of the most memorable members of O.J.’s defense team. He was the one who coined the phrase, “If it doesn’t fit, you music acquit,” when talking about the bloodied gloves that prosecutors claimed were used in the murder. Sadly, he can’t see Courtney B. Vance portray him on American Crime Story, as Johnnie passed away in 2005.
Do you think O.J. confessed to his agent that he committed those murders, HollywoodLifers?
