TMZ obtained a picture of O.J. Simpson signing memorabilia in a private hotel room in Las Vegas, including Buffalo Bills and USC football helmets. He spent two hours doing it, and he plans to do it again. The stuff will probably be sold to auctioneers. But there are a couple potential problems with this.
First of all, O.J. still owes $100 million to the Brown and Goldman families. Remember, they won $33.5 million from him in their civil wrongful death lawsuit, and there’s been 22 years of interest.
So if O.J. were to claim this income, they can take it. But if he does this under the table, he’s breaking the law. He could be sent back to prison for that. (What if he’s doing it for CHARITY? That would be something.)
Meanwhile, Fred Goldman filed court documents to try to prevent O.J. from scoring some kind of big payday and hiding it. He seems to think O.J. is looking to make bank on a post-prison interview.
But O.J.’s attorney says, “Mr. Simpson has no desire to conduct any interviews with the media, and certainly has no desire to solicit an interview for monetary gain.”
