BREAKING NEWS: OJ Simpson Dead at 76

OJ

OJ Simpson, once a celebrated NFL player turned notorious figure in American culture, has passed away after a battle with cancer, according to his family. Simpson, who gained global attention during his trial for the double-murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, in the 1990s, breathed his last on Wednesday night in Las Vegas, surrounded by his children and grandchildren.

Confirmation of Simpson's death came from his family members and his attorney, affirming reports that the former football star had been grappling with prostate cancer in recent years. In the past few months, Simpson's health deteriorated, leading him to hospice care.

The news of Simpson's cancer diagnosis emerged in February, initially met with some ambiguity as Simpson neither confirmed nor denied the reports, although he refuted being in hospice. In a video posted on an online platform in 2023, Simpson hinted at battling cancer but suggested he had overcome it. However, the disease resurged, ultimately claiming his life approximately a year later.
